"I'm hoping that it goes on for another two days". American Brooks Koepka leads at 12-under, with Tiger Woods looming at eight-under after a second consecutive rounds of 66.

"The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough".

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., was a part of the late wave that had its round suspended by the weather. Woods slid his lag putt by the hole, then missed a short comeback putt for par.

And it started early, 7 a.m. local time. This golf course is very gettable.

He was playing with Kisner, who shot 29 on the back nine and was in the middle of the ninth fairway - his final hole - needing a birdie to become the first player to shoot 62 in the PGA Championship. The ball barely moved once it hit the green and for the third time in as many holes it's a birdie opportunity. This one missed, and only later did Koepka realize it was for 62.

The challenge for the field will be to catch a player so physically and mentally tough that he lifts weights even during major championships.

Blue Light From Phones And Electronics Can Cause Blindness, A Study Finds
But as we age, or if the immune system is suppressed, we lose the ability to fight against attacks by retinal and blue light. It turns out that introducing the retinal to blue light leads the molecule to have a "poisonous" reaction, the study found.

"My caddie said something walking off", Koepka said. "The energy's been fantastic, which I really fed off, so I'm excited for that". You know what, watch out for that guy; he's hanging around! .

"To hole in one on a Saturday at a major was really special".

After finishing the second round, the 80 who made the cut were sent off the first and 10th tees in trios in a bid to complete the third round by sunset. That would go such a long way for everyone. The 36-hole score of 130 is a record for the competition.

Woods, ranked 51st, won his most recent major title at the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational but showed solid form last month by leading Sunday on the back nine at the British Open.

Koepka was at 8-under 132, two shots behind.

Charl Schwartzel, Thomas Pieters and Dustin Johnson are all on -7 with Lowry.

Manchester City too strong for Arsenal and Unai Emery
We were the best last season, definitely, there is no doubt about it. "I'm not rigid to stick to one formation or way of playing". Emery now has a clear sense of the task he faces, throwing his arms in the air in frustration as the goals were conceded.

One shot back of Scott sharing third are superstars Jon Rahm (66) and Rickie Fowler (69), as well as overnight leader Gary Woodland (71).

Spieth has battled with his game all year, and his confidence isn't at its peak. Superficially, the rock-chinned, burly-chested Koepka looks like an exercise in pure bashing power golf, of muscle meeting technology. "This golf course is stacked right now and everyone is bunched", Woods said. "This course would be phenomenal - and probably is phenomenal - if it's not playing soft. Because of that, you got to make birdies". "Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday".

ST. LOUIS - Who knows what time Tiger Woods woke up on Saturday morning, but like all of those who had to finish the second round, it was in the dark.

"It's been 16 pars in a row from yesterday to today, so hopefully I can break that run in the morning", McIlroy said.

"Obviously, it's a bummer because my putter is as hot as it's been in two years, and I'm really rolling the rock nicely, and the swing is nearly there". In conditions like Bellerive, no lead was safe. "It's been insane all week", Woodland said. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".
