PGA Championship 2017: Jason Day can't help but hug Dustin Johnson

At the ninth hole, Rod Pampling took a similar course of action but with a different result.

A weather delay of almost two hours during the second round of the PGA Championship on Friday forced many players in the afternoon wave to finish their rounds by playing a bit of speed golf. Thanks to a 1-hour-and-43-minute weather suspension during the afternoon, the second round was unable to be completed for everyone. Nobody in that threesome (Pampling, Thomas Pieters and Xander Schauffele) had any chance to make the cut as they approached Quail Hollow's par-4 ninth (their final hole of the round).

Pampling double-bogeyed the hole. Under rule, once the horn blows to suspend play, if there is not a risky situation, players can finish the hole on which they are playing as long as one person in the group has teed off. And his PGA was over.

Salmonella outbreak linked to peas sold in Wisconsin
Peas will no longer be sold at the farmer's market for the season, not because of the outbreak, but because the season is over. The health department says if you bought peas on July 22nd from the Green Bay Farmer's Market, throw them away.

That means groups are desperate to be on the final hole when this happens so they can finish and avoid a super early Saturday start to complete the little remnants of their Friday round. "It was just a case where we had nothing to lose, so I was just getting it off as quick as we could so we could get finished, basically".

"That's the biggest, or most clutch thing I've ever seen anyone do for me", Day said. There was no one in the group doing any good, so we were kind of rushing down there just to try to get it in.
