Second round suspended due to bad weather

Second round suspended due to bad weather

And the birdies came to the court of the Bellerive Country Club, in St. Louis, Missouri. From early on, the scores under par flooded the board. Starting with the leaders. Gary Woodland made 66 hits and with -10 is just ahead. Kevin Kisner made 64 and with -9 is the second. Brooks Koepka scored 63 (record of the day) and with -8 he is third. Dustin Johnson recorded 66 hits and with -7 tied for fourth place. Up to here all Americans. The South African Charl Scwartzel equaled the record of -7 and with that record also ties the fourth position. Rickie Fowler, also fourth with -7. The Australian Adam Scott, the Italian and Open champion, Francesco Molinari, the Americans Patrick Cantlay, Billy Horschel and Pat Perez, and the Spanish Jon Rahm march with -5 tied for the ninth position. EFE The Argentine Emiliano Grillo played very well for the tomorrow and scored a 67 to total -4 and to be in the position 16. Great work of the young chaqueño who came out for the hole 1 and had to overcome a bogey on the hole 5. But then under the 7 and 8 to close the way in 34 strokes. In the round he made four birdies and two bogeys. The dark point of his return came to an end with bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes. A pain that was partly alleviated by a birdie on the hole17. With this score is 6 strokes of the theoretical tip, facing the weekend. Juaquin Niemann, the Chilean fresh out of high school and who dazzles with his successful appearance in the circuit, was for a moment in fifth place. At the end of his fourth hole he got -4 for the tournament. But as it happened on the first day, he alternated very good with very bad. Three bogeys and a dobrebogey stopped him on his way back. He hit the final hole, the 9th for him, where he could pocket a birdie that put him safe for the weekend with a total score of -1. There is clearly a horizon of glory in this sport for Niemann. The fate of the third Latin American at the Battle of Bellerive has yet to be defined. The Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas, marched in +1 at the moment of the suspension of the game, that took it in the hole 7. The cut is estimated at the moment in the pair of the field. Vegas has a lot of golf still ahead and the goal of playing the weekend is close. The leaders, Woodland (-10) and Kisner (-9), went out together in the first two rounds. They reached the top on very different paths. Woodland, who measures 1.85, is a very long puncher who is 6th in "driving distance", took advantage of his distance to shoot short irons at the greens of Bellerive. In the other path, Kisner, hit with less power the ball and is one of the most accurate with medium and long irons. "It's fortunate that the greens are soft and receptive, that's why I can brake an iron 4 as well as Woodland does with a 7," Kisner told reporters. Anyway, these two great players have already won on the PGA Tour and now have a chance to achieve a victory that would take their careers to the next level. The Spanish Jon Rahm starred in a curious episode by stepping on his ball that was not seen in the rough . "No one warned me where I was and I did not see it," an angry Rahm told the officer who applied the fine penalty for moving his ball. Despite the penalty, Rahm managed to make the pair in that pair 5. Great disappointment in the crowd that followed the golden trio. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas only made it to the 7th hole. The suspension stopped them there. Woods, who started with three birdies in the first five holes, had just been saved in par 3 of the 6th hole, after making his second shot very short from the bunker. He dribbled in from 5 meters and started a standing ovation from the crowd. For now it is at -3 for the tournament. If I managed to keep the inspiration and make a return in the low 60s, I could get into the definition. The American and number two in the world, Thomas, was in -2 for the tournament. It is another that with a good return could challenge the leaders. Rory remains in pair and remains a mystery. Striking superbly, both with the drive, with which he reaches impossible distances, as with his irons, which look like musical instruments in his hands, it is incredible that he does not master this game. But 50% of this art is executed with the shortest stick in the bag, the putter, and when it is out of tune, the music sounds very bad. Much still to play in Missouri with a view to the definition of the last Major of the year, the 100th edition of the PGA Championship, which brings into play the precious Wanamaker trophy.
