While officials sounded the horn just after 3.30pm local time on Friday, Scott had fired a five-under-par 65 at Bellerive Country Club in Missouri hours earlier to earn a 36-hole score of five under. Despite getting to one under on the third hole (his 12th), a double bogey followed on the fifth to place him one shot outside the level-par cut.

"The golf course is good", said Woodland, a three-time PGA Tour victor who has never finished among the top 10 in a major championship.

No one from the afternoon side of the draw finished more than 12 holes.

At 3:35 p.m., when time the horn blew to suspend play because of a severe weather warning, Rickie Fowler was in the best position to make a run at Woodland's lead. He added a 66 to his opening-round 64 to complete 36 holes at 130, the lowest total in the championship's 100 years and bettering the mark of 131, which had been shot nine times.

With Bellerive ripe for low scoring with its moist, wide fairways and receptive greens, there were red numbers for birdies all over the leaderboards.

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.

Ireland's Lowry re-started on four under, but joined world number one Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel and Thomas Pieters on seven under after birdies on 12, 13 and 17 for a flawless six-under 64.

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

Tiger Woods is tied for 23rd at 3-under-par, but only got in seven holes before the suspension. Play was suspended on Friday because of unsafe weather.

Trump's announcement saw the Turkish lira drop even further, crashing to a 19 percent daily loss against the greenback. Last week, Erdogan called on Turks to convert their foreign currency and gold into Turkish lira to help the currency.

Woodland, who has completely revamped his game, particularly his putting, was asked if he wasn't able to feel "safe" with the lead because the golf course is yielding so many low scores.

"I played really well", Koepka said. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".

"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said. "Kevin played beautifully today".

"I just have to make birdies", Woods said of his mindset going into the third round.

"I'm very happy with where I'm at", he said. I'm very comfortable with how I'm driving the golf ball. The iron game, the distance control this week, has been phenomenal. "When I stand over a golf ball putting as comfortable as I am right now, I'm pretty excited".

However, the 34-year-old American saw playing partner Kisner surge ahead in a blistering start.

"I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said. "He doesn't let anything get him too rattled".

Johnson, who is going by Zach J. Johnson this week to differentiate himself from Zach Johnson, the 15-year veteran on the PGA Tour, shot a 1-under-par 69 on Friday to finish at 145, but it won't be good enough to stick around for the weekend, as the cut is expected to be around even par.
