Description
The PGA Championship (often referred to as the U.S. PGA Championship or U.S. PGA outside the United States) is an annual golf tournament conducted by the Professional Golfers' Association of America. It is one of the four major championships in professional golf, and it is the golf season's final major, played in mid-August on the third weekend prior to Labor Day weekend. (It was rescheduled for 2016 to late July to accommodate golf's return to the Olympics, and from 2019 will become the year's second major, taking place in May.) It is an official money event on the PGA Tour, European Tour, and Japan Golf Tour, with a purse of $10 million since the 97th edition in 2015.

In line with the other majors, winning the PGA gains privileges that improve career security. PGA champions are automatically invited to play in the other three majors (Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, and The Open Championship) and The Players Championship for the next five years, and are eligible for the PGA Championship for life. They receive membership on the PGA Tour for the following five seasons and on the European Tour for the following seven seasons. The PGA is the only one of the four majors to be a tournament almost exclusively for professional players.

The PGA Championship has been held at a large number of venues. Some of the early sites are now quite obscure, but in recent years, the event has generally been played at a small group of celebrated courses, each of which has also hosted several other leading events, including the U.S. Open and Ryder Cup.

Play was suspended Friday afternoon at 3:35 pm due to dangerous weather with half of the field still on the course. Play was set to resume Saturday morning at 7 am local time with the third round to follow at about 11:15 am. Gary Woodland was the clubhouse leader at 130 (−10), which set a PGA Championship record for low 36-hole score. Two players, Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel, shot record-tying rounds of 63.
