The second round of the PGA Championship was off to a soggy start and a sudden stop Friday.
    
A steady rain forced officials to suspend the round after just 20 minutes because of too much water on the putting surfaces. Work crews already were using squeegees on the greens when another burst of showers hit Valhalla.
    
Play was halted 45 minutes before Rory McIlroy was to tee off, and as Ryan Palmer was playing the first hole.
    
Palmer, Lee Westwood and Kevin Chappell shared the first-round lead at 6-under 65. Palmer was the only one from that group who played in the morning, which typically has easier conditions.
    
Rain was in the forecast for most of Friday. While it would make the greens soft, it would make the course longer.
