Kiwi golfer Ryan Fox has rocketed up the leaderboard at the PGA Championship in North Carolina after firing a sublime five-under second round 66.
The 30-year-old Kiwi climbed from 80th overnight at Quail Hollow into a share of 11th, amassing six birdies with his only blemish a bogey at the par-four 11th.
Play was suspended for nearly two hours due to bad weather, then darkness forced a halt before round two could be completed.
Fox's round was in stark contrast to his opening four-over 75, where two early birdies were swamped by four bogeys and a double-bogey on the closing nine.
He sits seven strokes behind American front-runner Kevin Kisner who held the overnight lead with Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen.
Kisner carded a second successive 67 and shares the clubhouse lead with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who added a second-round 64 to his opening 70.
The second Kiwi in the field, Danny Lee, has missed the cut after amassing nine bogeys and a double bogey alongside four birdies in a second round seven-over 78.
