Day, Scott in mix at PGA as play suspended

Play was officially called at 5:33 p.m. and is scheduled to resume Saturday at 7 a.m.

Woods was 3-under through the first seven holes of his second round on Friday before a weather delay stopped the round. Although he went on to save his par, he now feels like he's given two strokes back to the field on that hole, after dropping a shot there in Round 1.

Woods kept the fist-pump in the holster when he poured in his third birdie of the round at the fifth, this time rolling in a 10-footer that got him to 3 under for the championship.

After a steady par at the first, Woods found the fairway at the second and hit a solid approach shot to 13 feet.

With more massive crowds watching his every move, Woods curled in a long putt to save par out of the bunker at the sixth, and he almost holed another chip before making par at the seventh. Woods hit his tee shot in the bunker and didn't hit a good second shot at all. If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole.

Woods showed even more emotion at the long, hard par-4 fourth.

Tournament leader Gary Woodland of the United States makes par at the ninth hole in his second round.

Venezuelan opposition leader calls attack on Maduro 'staged'
Another opposition lawmaker, Juan Requesens, was also singled out by Maduro for having been involved in the failed attempt . On Wednesday chief prosecutor Tarek Saab said there were 19 people linked to the attack , with six of them behind bars.

The forecasts for Saturday and Sunday are much better with each day calling for a 10-percent chance of rain. The soft bentgrass greens have allowed players to attack hole locations, their balls ending up near where they land and leaving big ball marks. Fowler is now tied for fourth at 7-under through 10 holes in the second round.

If Woods wants to continue his positive mojo from Friday on Saturday he needs to avoid the trouble that plagued him to start his round on Thursday.

Kisner shot 29 on the back nine - his first nine - and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62 but bogeyed the final hole and settled for 64. He then had a double bogey on No. 11 and had to scratch back three shots to finish at even par.

Woods should also have a good shot at birdie on No. 8.

His drive at the eighth landed in the thick rough, and he hacked his way out to set up a short approach to the par 5.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and former Masters victor Charl Schwartzel each shot 63, which matches the lowest score in tournament history, one that had been shot 14 times. Twenty-eight holes of major-tournament golf in a single day is a lot to ask of any professional, let alone a 42-year-old with the injury list Woods has.
