"It was one of the tightest cuts I've seen, incredibly close, but I was very happy to be out here today and made the most of it, which was fun", Rose added. So Walker and Day will not be in Sunday afternoon's final twosome.

Walker joins Danny Willett (Masters), Dustin Johnson (U.S. Open) and Henrik Stenson (British Open) as first-time major champions.

Justin Rose certainly agreed with that assessment and had predicted that the first 62 in major history was a real possibility before the bad weather intervened.

Day settled into a string of pars on the easier back nine until finishing with a birdie for a 67. "I look back I could have holed a few more putts, but I probably came out of the round neutral".

Even while Walker held that lead, Jason Day emerged as the betting favorite over the weekend. He and nine others had to play their entire third round Sunday morning after heavy rains forced a suspension of play on Saturday. Unlike playing partner and co-second round leader Robert Streb, who fell off with a 72, Walker turned it around.

"Those are the kind of breaks you need".

But a disappointing three-putt at 16 took the wind out of his sails and, after he missed a good birdie opportunity at the 17th, he pulled his drive at the last into water before doing well to salvage a par to finish on nine under par. Forecasts called for more rain Sunday but the PGA of America remained optimistic the tournament would end Sunday.

He is trying to join Tiger Woods as the only players to win the PGA Championship in consecutive years since it went to stroke play in 1958. He was at 3 over for the tournament, no chance of winning, but assured his first tournament check since 2013.

That birdie on 18 assisted in keeping the momentum alive for the defending champion entering his final round.

Ariya Jutanugarn is a thunderous hitter and she powered her way to the top of the leaderboard with a third-round 66 in the Women's British Open on Saturday.

Downpours pushed the week's rainfall total at Baltusrol beyond four inches, softening the greens and so saturating the 7,428-yard layout that officials used preferred lies, or "lift, clean and place" rules, for the last round, believed to be an unprecedented move in major golf history.

Fans leave the course during a weather delay in the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J., Saturday, July 30, 2016.

Play resumed for 47 golfers at 7 a.m. Sunday.

With storms in the forecast for Saturday afternoon, Haigh said the PGA did not "significantly" consider a two-tee start Saturday morning in threesomes.

"Everything is underwater", Streb said, "regardless of whether the lightning stopped". And that would keep Day from being a one-hit major wonder.

And a little thunderstorm isn't about to rain on this golfer's parade. His results on Tour have been middling, and his advanced statistics were nothing special.
