Quick turnaround at PGA


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – There will be no rest for the weary at the PGA Championship. As the delayed second round inched toward completion early Saturday at Whistling Straits some players were already readying for Round 3.

The third round is scheduled to begin at about 11:45 a.m. (CT), with threesomes going off the first and 10th tees. That puts the leaders heading out at about 1:45 p.m.

“I’m going to be on my rear end with my feet kicked up,” said Jim Furyk when asked how he would spend the time between rounds.

Those who were pulled from the golf course as darkness descended on Lake Michigan were greeted with favorable conditions early Saturday morning. Before play was called winds were whipping to 20 mph and a light drizzle of rain was falling.

“Figured I’d get up in the morning and (the weather) had to better than it was,” said Furyk, who is tied for third place at 6 under. “I checked the report and saw 7 (mph), which sounded great.”
