Approaching storm halts play at PGA

 

Associated Press

ST. LOUIS -- Play at the PGA Championship has been halted because of approaching storms.

The siren calling a halt to play sounded shortly after Tiger Woods hit his second shot on the par-5 eighth hole.

Woods was 3 under through seven holes and 3 under for the tournament, seven behind leader Gary Woodland.

Earlier in the day, Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel shot 63 to tie a PGA Championship record.

It was the first time two players had posted 63 on the same day at a major since Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf did in the opening round of the 1980 U.S. Open at Baltusrol.
