The third round of the US PGA Championship at Baltusrol, New Jersey, was called off because of the threat of lightning. Just the top 10 had been unable to start their rounds when play was suspended at 7.15pm BST.

As things stand, the American duo of Robert Streb and Jimmy Walker still top the leaderboard on nine under par, meaning they are two clear of world number one Jason Day and Emiliano Grillo of Argentina. Meanwhile, Kevin Kisner is the clubhouse leader on five under after hitting a 65.

Event organisers have confirmed that the third round will resume on Sunday (31 July) at 12pm BST. Round four will start from 1.40pm BST, with players teeing off in the same pairings as was the case for round three.

Phil Mickelson, who carded a two-under 68 on Saturday, said he expects the major record of 63 to be broken before this year's US PGA Championship is concluded.

"There's a 61 or 62 out there because it's par 70, the greens are pristine – they're rolling beautifully – and they're soft," he said, according to the BBC. "There's just a lot of birdie holes."
