US PGA resumes after Saturday storms


The weather-affected US PGA Championship got back under way on Sunday as the first of the final five groups to begin their third rounds teed off at Baltusrol.

Thunderstorms led to play being abandoned on Saturday, with the top 10 players having failed to get out on the course.

Hideki Matsuyama and Harris English - who sit five shots back from leading duo Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb - finally got going at 7am local time (12pm BST) on Sunday.

However, with further storms forecast a Monday finish remains on the cards, as was the case when Baltusrol last hosted the US PGA in 2005.

American Phil Mickelson was the winner then and two of his compatriots lead the way this time around, with Walker and Streb - scheduled for a 7:40am tee time - on nine under.

Among the other players yet to start their third rounds are Open winner Henrik Stenson, who is three shots back, and reigning champion Jason Day, poised ominously just two strokes behind.
