ST. LOUIS - Tiger Woods was really doing something and the fans were eating it up, growing louder with each birdie.

Woods started Round 2 of the PGA Championship 10 shots back and dug in, with three birdies in the first five holes. It was a gripping start in the middle of the arena, underneath the Goodyear blimp with Woods charging and building momentum coming up on the par-5 8 th with a chance to get to 4 under.

Tiger gets it started in Round 2 .#QuickHits pic.twitter.com/txYt7milok. — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) December 1, 2017. A nice approach shot left Woods with just a 4-footer for birdie to start the round. He would drop the putt and move to 4 under.

It was clear that Woods , who just two years ago was said to be mostly a “ghost” around town and at his Tiger has been seen spending more time signing autographs at PGA Tour stops in 2018. A couple of weeks later at the Valspar Championship , Woods found himself in contention throughout

It was easy to miss a mass of troubling clouds forming in the meantime, and the horn blew soon after Woods' second shot at eight and the best drama in golf was cut off at peak suspense.

He'll have to sleep on that shot, with play suspended for the day and set to resume at 8 a.m. ET Saturday morning.

Woods laid up after an errant tee shot left of the fairway and put a tee deep in the ground to mark his ball some 50-60 yards short of the green once the horn blew. Tomorrow he'll put his ball back and take on a straightforward up-and-down for birdie to get within six shots of the lead. And he'll have soft greens to work with considering all the rain that poured down shortly after he walked up the ninth hole, toward the clubhouse and out of sight.

Playing partners Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy were still in the fairway, waiting to go for the green in two. Woods charged past both of them Friday afternoon, with McIlroy stuck at even par and Thomas at 2 under. Major winners and superstars in their own right, they've been reduced to supporting roles with Woods playing Bellerive for the first time ever in competition.

PGA Championship 2018: Tony Finau ties record for most birdies in a round

  PGA Championship 2018: Tony Finau ties record for most birdies in a round Tony Finau had 10 birdies in his second round at the PGA Championship, tying Gary Player's record set in 1984.ST. LOUIS — Tony Finau's second round scorecard at the PGA Championship is mesmerizing. He started with five birdies in a row, followed by a triple at 5 (whoops), and then birdies at 7 and 8, and then a bogey at 9. He finally made his first par at 10. The last eight holes were a little more mellow, three birdies, three pars and two bogies - not in that order. That brought the birdie total to 10 for the round. The number ties the record set by Gary Player at 1984 at Shoal Creek when he made 10 birdies in his second round.

Tiger Woods gave himself a chance on the final hole but came up one shot short of forcing a playoff with Paul Casey, who won the Valspar Championship for his second victory on the PGA TOUR. "I keep getting just a little bit better and a little bit sharper," Woods said after finishing at 9 under.

Playing it very well over his last 17 holes, at 6 under par.

The problem was a three-over start through two holes Thursday morning in Round 1, but he weathered the storm and landed safely in the clubhouse with an even-par 70.

Friday's round had a different feel from the jump, especially when he put everyone on notice and stuck it to five feet at the par-3 third. Significant roars followed and Thomas, the defending champion, seemed to be registering his surroundings, just taking this wild atmosphere in.

Woods grooved another one in tight at No. 5 and St. Louis was up for grabs when he converted for birdie from 10 feet. The possibilities were endless from there.

Woods definitely looked like he was going to give one back at the par-3 sixth, losing his tee shot left and leaving his bunker shot short. The remaining 15-foot par putt was a winding downhiller, a low-percentage make for sure. It was Woods' first significant par putt of the day and he rattled it home, keeping emotions in check when it dropped.

A collective "OOOOH" went through the gallery when Woods hit the pin with a chip shot just in front of the seventh green, taking a tap-in par and walking across a bridge to the eighth tee box.

A big opportunity to make up more ground awaited.

Woods hit driver off the tee and missed left again, but pitched out in front of the green.

Woods just gave everyone plenty to sleep on.
