The 92nd PGA Championship is playing catchup on Saturday morning with half the field still trying to finish their second rounds after darkness halted play on Friday.

American Matt Kuchar holds the clubhouse lead after finishing a three-under 69 on Friday. He stands at eight under, one shot clear of American Nick Watney (68).

World number one Tiger Woods - who could lose his number one ranking this weekend to Phil Mickelson - is on the course and is two under for the tournament with three holes to play in his second round.

Saturday was the first time that the day's action got off on time as there have been a total of nearly six hours in fog delays with both opening rounds being suspended because of darkness.

"It's definitely different than normal," Watney said on Friday.

"I was actually talking to my caddie and we were talking about something that happened this morning but we both thought it was yesterday."

Weather forecasters had mistakenly predicted overnight rain which held off, allowing the course to dry out for the players who tee off later in the day to start the third round.
