Pat Perez gained entry into this week's PGA Championship when Rory McIlroy won the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

When Geoff Ogilvy emerged with the title at the Barracuda Championship and assumed one of the remaining two vacancies at Valhalla Golf Club, the final was reserved for the winner at Firestone if not otherwise exempt. Perez was first alternate. He'll be making his eighth start in the season's final major and first since sharing 21st place at Kiawah Island in 2012. After a sparkling opening to the season, he's fallen on hard times. Perez has cashed just twice in his last six starts and finds himself in a slump that has extended eight consecutive starts without a top 40. (Shawn Stefani is now first alternate at the PGA.)

Due to inclement weather, third-round play at the 98th PGA Championship has been abandoned with a scheduled restart of 7:00 a.m. ET on Sunday.

Play was initially suspended at 2:15 p.m. and called shortly before 6:00 p.m. Forty-nine (49) of 86 players were stranded, including 10 who have yet to tee off. Of the 37 who got their respective rounds into the books, Kevin Kisner is the pace-setter on 5-under 205 following a seven-birdie two bogey 65, tied for low round in the clubhouse with Padraig Harrington. The 32-year-old sandwiched bogeys on Nos. 6 and 7 with back-to-back birdies on 3 and 4, and 8 and 9, later connecting three straight on holes 15-17. He pelted 16 greens in regulation, contributing to 3.540 SG: Approach-the-Green, and is currently up 42 spots on the board to T6. Kisner's split featured a 50-footer at the third, tacking on a 22'4" roll on the fourth and four other conversions from between eight and 12 feet.

Past champ Padraig Harrington fashioned a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 4-under 206, currently T10 on the leaderboard and up 51 places on the day.

The 44-year-old won the 2008 edition at Oakland Hills and opened this week, his 18th PGA, in 71-70 to sit one inside the cut line (T61). He went out in 2-under, circling back-to-backs on Nos. 5 and 6, adding further birdies on 12 and 14, and capping with a two-putt birdie after landing the par-5 18th in two. The Irishman hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 2.471 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.437 SG: Putting en route to the low lap in the clubhouse with Kevin Kisner. He converted two of his scoring chances from between 10 feet and 13 feet with the highlight a 51'11" bomb at the par-4 sixth.

The third round of the 98th PGA Championship was suspended at 2:15 p.m. ET due to inclement weather with 10 (of 86) players yet to tee off.

According to PGA TOUR officials, the duration of the delay will be at least one hour. One chap who won't have to worry about it is Justin Rose, who celebrated his 36th birthday with a 4-under-par 33-33=66, bumping 42 places on Moving Day to T28. He was one of 17 golfers to make the cut on the number (2-over 142) after opening his 14th appearance in 70-72.

A total of 86 players made the cut on 2-over 142 at the 98th PGA Championship but FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson (77-72=149) and two-time PGA champ Rory McIlroy (74-69=143) weren't among them. UPDATE: Although 86 players, there is no 54-hole cut (MDF) in majors (or the FedExCup Playoffs).

World No. 2 Johnson and World No. 4 McIlroy were pre-tourney co-faves at 8/1. Johnson, whose TOUR-leading consecutive cuts made streak ends at 25, opened his seventh PGA in a 7-over 77 that included a lone birdie-2 against four bogeys and two doubles. He mustered just one birdie-2 again in R2, outpacing it with three bogeys. For McIlroy, who missed his first PGA cut in his eighth visit, he began with a birdie-less 74 and after canning a 33'11" birdie-4 at 17, needed only a par 5 at the 18th (easiest hole) to make the cut, but slopped to a bogey-6 from the middle of the fairway. Other notables with early exits include: 143- Scott Piercy; Chris Wood ... 144- Byeong-Hun An; J.B. Holmes ... 145- Kevin Chappell; Gary Woodland; Shane Lowry; Sergio Garcia; Charley Hoffman ... 146- Matt Kuchar ... 147- Tony Finau ... 149- Graeme McDowell.

Defending champ Jason Day awoke to toss up a 5-under 34-31=65 in the second round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach 7-under 135, up six places to T3, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb.

The World No. 1 landed seven (of 14) fairways and after 17 greens in regulation in R1, he peppered 16 in R2, co-leading the field at 91.67 percent. He converted eight times, including SEVEN over an eight-hole stretch encompassing holes 8-15. The Aussie's split featured a 26'5" birdie-3 at the second, a 17'10" roll at the par-4 tenth, an 18'8" birdie-3 at the 13th, and a 37'1" bomb at the par-4 14th. His dropped shots were a 3-putt from 68'11" at the par-4 third and a sloppy double bogey-6 at the seventh. Day posted 1.563 putts per GIR and 2.850 in SG: Putting.

Robert Streb painted a 7-under-par 30-33=63 in today's second round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 9-under 131, up eight places on the leaderboard and tying overnight leader Jimmy Walker for the 36-hole lead. UPDATE: Streb's 63 is the low round of the week and the 14th in PGA Championship history.

The 29-year-old, T10 in his tourney debut last year, had a 21'2" birdie try on the par-3 ninth (his final hole) to become the 30th player to ever shoot 63 in a major AND NAILED IT. It was his eighth birdie of the round on 14 greens in regulation, camouflaging a lone bogey-4 at the par-3 16th (failed sand save). The Kansas State alum is the third player this year to shoot 63 in a major, joining Phil Mickelson/R1 and Henrik Stenson/R4 at The Open. All four of his par breakers on his outward half dropped from inside of four feet, and his four coming home crashed-in from greater than 12 feet with a long of 42'3" at the par-4 seventh. This is Streb's first lead this season after any round in his 24th start and is still seeking his first top 10 (T18, Farmers).

Overnight leader Jimmy Walker authored a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach the midpoint on 9-under 131, good for the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Walker is tied with Robert Streb for the 36-hole lead.

Walker's opening 65 was good for a one-shot lead over three players. It's his first lead after any round this season in his 20th start, and first 18-hole lead in a major. The 37-year-old landed eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation, circling five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 12-14. His split featured two conversions from greater than 26 feet with a long of 38'11" at the par-4 13th. The Baylor product was blemish-free thru 17 holes before hitting his tee shot on the par-5 18th into the water, eventually leading to a walk-off bogey, 3-putting from 59'2".

PGA TOUR rookie Emiliano Grillo fashioned a 5-under 35-32=67 in the second round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 7-under 133, two shy of 36-hole leader Jimmy Walker.

The 23-year-old began off No. 10 tee and went out in bogey-free 4-under 32, circling birdies on Nos. 12, 14, 15 and 18. Three of those dropped from inside of nine feet and he banged home a 39-footer at the par-4 15th. The Argentine cooled off after the break, coming home with eight pars and a bogey-5 at the eighth, his first blemish over his last 25 holes. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.691 SG: Putting at the time he signed his card. Grillo currently leads the field in SGP with a cumulative 6.563.

Henrik Stenson smoothed a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in round two of the 98th PGA Championship at Baltusrol on Friday and holds the clubhouse lead of 6-under 134, one shot clear of Martin Kaymer.

Fresh from winning the Open Championship with a startling Sunday 63, Stenson has followed that with twin 67s in New Jersey this week. It means he's firmly on course to become the fourth player in the last 11 years to land the Open-PGA double in the same season (Tiger Woods 2006, Padraig Harrington 2007 and Rory McIlroy 2014 the other three). Stenson swallowed early bogeys at 12 and 13 today but balanced the books with an eagle-3 at 18 after smashing his second (a "flat-out 3-wood") from 258 yards to just 3ft. The Swede rode that momentum with birdies at 1 and 3 and moved into the lead on his own after splashing his 86-yard bunker shot at the 380-yard 8th hole to tap-in range. There's a long way to go but right now Stenson is clear favorite with the bookmakers to win his second straight major.
Jul 29 - 2:34 PM

Patrick Reed twirled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach halftime at 5-under 135, up 34 spots on the live leaderboard to T2, tying the low round of the week with Jimmy Walker/R1, and one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson.

Making his third appearance with a best of T30 last year at Whistling Straits, the 25-year-old opened with a 70, exchanging four birdies with two bogeys and a double. He squared two bogeys again in R2, but kept the big number off the card, circling seven birdies on 16 greens in regulation to post the low lap of the day in the clubhouse. Reed who began off No. 10 tee, converted four from inside of seven feet, including a walk-off 2 at the ninth from 19 inches, and a long of 41'6" at the par-4 14th.
Jul 29 - 2:19 PM

Martin Kaymer tacked on a 1-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 66 to post 5-under 135 through two rounds of the 98th PGA Championship, good enough for Friday's early clubhouse lead.

Despite finding water with his opening tee shot and making bogey at two of his first three holes, Kaymer ended with a flourish to stay right in contention to win the year's final major for a second time. The German responded to his sticky start with a bounceback birdie-2 at No. 3 although he dropped another shot at 10. But on the Lower Course's gettable closing stretch, the 31-year-old drained 18ft birdie putts at 15 and 16 and signed off with another circle at 18 after wedging his third to inside 5ft. Right now, he's in a four-way tie for the lead with Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker. On today's morning lap, Kaymer hit 13 greens in regulation for the second round in succession but upped his fairways hit count from 7 to 8 (of 14).
