Woods has made 15 of them this week, one for every major championship he hopes to have late on Sunday at Bellerive.
The low scoring meant Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy began their second rounds 10 shots off the lead and they completed just seven holes before play was suspended due to lightning.
Asked to play 29 holes in stifling heat on Saturday, the 42-year-old completed one round of 66 in the morning before following it with another in the afternoon. "So I'm not saying that my score would be any better, I'm just saying what you would like to see in a major championship".
Woods, a 14-time major victor in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery, opened Saturday with a birdie at the par-5 eighth.
'I'm exhausted, I'm not going to lie to you, ' said Woods.
Round One leader Gary Woodland shot a four under par 66 to get to 10 under for the tournament and hold on to the lead.
Pulling a five-iron from his bag, Wallace watched as his shot hit the green, took two hops and rolled straight into the cup triggering a massive roar that washed over Bellerive Country Club. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open, blew a share of the third-round lead at the British with a final round 76 and has one top-10 finish in his last nine starts.
"I think this morning was very scorable", said Schwartzel, who won the 2011 Masters.
Kisner cooled on the second nine and Woodland registered another solid side with birdies on 2 and 3 and a bogey on 4. "And when I stand over a golf ball putting as comfortable as I am right now, I'm pretty excited". He was at seven-under, three shots behind Woodland with eight holes to play.
Koepka and Johnson, two Americans who would not look out of place in a National Football League locker room, simply overpowered Bellerive but South African Schwartzel, not known for his work with the driver, showed there are other ways to tame the parkland layout. Woods struggled early in his first round with a couple bogies. One characteristic Furyk surely took note of was the fact that Finau didn't let his 4-over opening round get him down.
Rory McIlroy could not put the same pressure on the leaders however as a single birdie on the fourteenth only enough to leave him on two-under for the tournament with his second round almost completed. I'll eat a few meals tonight and then I'll be ready tomorrow, you can be sure of that'.
Jordan Spieth's career Grand Slam chances vanished with an ugly - and unusual - triple bogey on Saturday at the PGA Championship. "This course would be phenomenal - and probably is phenomenal - if it's not playing soft".
"That stemmed the momentum a little bit", Woods said.
