Storms halted play with half the field of 156 still on the course, the rain-soaked layout having surrendered three rounds Friday to rival the lowest in major golf history.
The 14-time major champion, in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery after years of back injuries, shared third on eight-under-par after seven holes at Bellerive Country Club.
The adverse weather was replaced with sunshine and clear skies as 78 players, including the marquee grouping of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Thomas, resumed play amid soggy conditions with all three making ground up the leaderboard. The 34-year-old shot a 4-under-par 66 on Friday, carding a 130 for the first 36 holes of the tournament and setting a PGA Championship record.
U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and former Masters victor Charl Schwartzel each shot 63, which matches the lowest score in tournament history, one that had been shot 14 times.

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol.
"I was just trying to make the thing, and I really thought I made it", Koepka said. Kisner birdied to go 8 under as well and regained a one-stroke lead with a birdie on 18, finishing his first nine holes in 29 strokes.
"I feel like I've been doing all the right stuff, and I just haven't been doing it on the golf course". "If they were firm, I don't think I would have a chance with the way the greens are situated and the places they're putting the flags". If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole. He's absolutely striping it and rolling the rock, so if he's going to keep that up we're going to have a pretty good battle if I can too.
