Play has been suspended for the rest of the day at the PGA Championship, where a band of strong storms brought heavy rains to Bellerive Country Club.

Nobody in the afternoon wave finished their second round, which means Kiwi Ryan Fox as well as big names Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas will have to resume play at midnight (NZ time) tonight.

Fox fell to a tie for 23rd after a one-under day through 12 holes, sitting at three-under for the tournament.

The 31-year-old will be forced to complete his third round from midnight tonight before, all going to plan, beginning his third round.

Fox will be hoping for a similar strong finish to his first round, where he went birdie-birdie in the final two holes to finish with a two-under 68 in the opening round.

The cut line is currently even-par. The low-70 and ties will begin their third round about 30 minutes after the second round concludes, going off in groups of three off the first and 10th tee.

Gary Woodland is the leader at 10 under, one shot better than Kevin Kisner. Both of them were in the morning wave and finished their rounds without any issue.
