KIAWAH ISLAND – Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh welcomed clear skies and light breezes this morning at the Ocean Course as they took to the driving range aiming to maintain their lead at the 94th PGA Championship. McIlroy and Singh were at 6 under par with a one shot edge on Adam Scott when play was halted by a Saturday storm.
A total of 26 players must complete their third round before the fourth round starts at 11:44 this morning. The last group will go off at 1:45 p.m.
Singh and Woods have 11 holes left in the third round.
Woods, seeking his 14th major title, is five shots off the lead at 1 under after bogeys on three of his last four holes Saturday.
Tickets for Saturday are not good for today “due to the capacity of the venue,” said Kerry Haigh, the PGA of America’s managing director of championships and business development.
The weather forecast for today calls for a high of 89-90 degrees with a 30 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms and Southwest winds at 10-12 mph.
