PGA Championship live updates, leaderboard: Scottie Scheffler gets to 9-under after arrest, Xander Schauffele back on top

Xander Schauffele retook the lead from Collin Morikawa late on Friday night in Louisville

Things were very chaotic at Valhalla Golf Club on Friday morning.

First, a fatal early-morning traffic incident has pushed back start times for the second round of the PGA Championship. Then, top-ranked Scottie Scheffler was handcuffed and arrested after he was stopped trying to drive around the traffic tie-up the incident caused. Scheffler is facing multiple charges, though attorneys told Yahoo Sports that he's not likely to face a felony conviction and an officer was hospitalized in the incident.

Scheffler was released a short time later, and he returned to Valhalla to start his second round as scheduled. He even birdied his opening hole, and seemed to be in good spirits out on the course. The whole situation, he said in a statement before his round, was because of "a big misunderstanding." Scheffler made the turn with his group at 6-under. He posted a 5-under 66, which dropped him to 9-under at the midway point of the tournament.

Xander Schauffele — who tied (his own) major record with a 9-under 62 in Round 1, which was the lowest score in PGA Championship history — will tee off in the afternoon wave. He entered the day with a three-shot lead, though that quickly disappeared after Collin Morikawa made a ridiculous five straight birdies on his back nine to get to briefly 12-under on the day. He posted a 6-under 65, which gave him a two-shot lead when he hit the clubhouse. Schauffele, however, quickly retook the lead by the time he made the turn in his round. He'll enter the weekend at 12-under.

Tiger Woods, however, struggled on Friday. He fell down the leaderboard early after a pair of triple bogeys, and ended up missing the cut.

  • Play has been suspended

    That's it for Round 2. Play has been suspended due to darkness with a couple dozen players still on the course.

  • Tiger gets an ovation

    It was a foregone conclusion for most of the the second round that Tiger Woods would miss the cut at the PGA. A couple of triples in his first four holes sealed that deal. So when he holed out for birdie on 18, he smiled a big smile and walked off to an encouraging gallery. Plus-seven sends him home.

    If there's a positive, it's this: after those doubles, he was 1-under over his final 14 holes.

    Next time we see him will likely be in June at Pinehurst.

  • Tiger Woods misses the cut

    Tiger Woods just birdied his final hole of the day, which brought him to 7-over on the week. That'll be it for him at the PGA Championship.

  • Xander Schauffele takes 1-shot lead into the weekend

    Xander Schauffele will take his one-shot lead into the weekend. Schauffele posted a 68 on Friday, which moved him to 12-under on the week. He's one shot ahead of Collin Moriakwa heading into Moving Day.

  • For a brief moment, Will Zalatoris said there was a group of players who wanted to postpone Friday's round at Valhalla.

    "At one point there were a group of guys in the locker room talking about going to the PGA of America about it, but I think it was dead in the water in the locker room. It was bizarre."

  • Tiger is holding steady at 7-over on the day with four holes left. He's going to miss the cut, which is currently projected at 1-under.

  • Believe it or not, Sahith Theegala managed to save bogey here. He's at 9-under now.

  • Where's Bryson when you need him?

  • Bryson DeChambeau is making moves to close out his round. He's made four birdies in his last six holes to drop to 7-under on the day.

  • Sahith Theegala with a bogey-free start to keep himself in contention. He's just two back of Xander Schauffele at the turn.

  • And now he's given one back ...

    Schauffele missed a short putt for par at 11, a rare mistake for him in his first two rounds. The lead is back to just one.

  • Xander not done

    Another hole, another birdie for Xander Schauffele. He's got it to 13-under, two strokes clear, after a birdie at 10. He may not shoot 62 today, but he going low again.

  • Schauffele back to the lead

    It took him nine holes, but Xander Schauffele has taken the lead back from Collin Morikawa. With a birdie on 7, Schauffele got to 11-under, to tie Morikawa. Another birdie at No. 9 and just like that, the man who shot a 62 on Thursday is to 12-under, 3-under on his round Friday.

  • What about the cutline?

    1-under, that's where it's projected right now. Here are some of those in danger of (or definitely) missing the weekend:

    (* Denotes still on the course)

    - Jon Rahm (E)

    - Matt Fitzpatrick (E)

    - Jordan Spieth (E)*

    - Dustin Johnson (+2)*

    - Wyndham Clark (+4)

    - Phil Mickelson (+4)

    - Tiger Woods (+6)*

    - Michael Block (+8)*

  • Tiger nearly holes it

    It hasn't been a good day for Tiger Woods, who is on his way to missing the cut. But he did have this moment at No. 8:

    Even with birdies on Nos. 7 and 8, Woods is still 6-over no thanks to a pair of triple bogeys. The cut line is projected to be 1-under, so it's doubtful he'll be playing tomorrow.

  • Brooks Koepka!

    The defending champ started his second round with a bogey, then birdied the second and, well, drained a 58-footer for birdie at the third. At 5-under, he has himself in the mix.

  • Scottie Scheffler warmed up in his jail cell

    True story. After his round, Scheffler provided some details of his arrest:

    - He stretched in his jail cell, hoping he'd make it to the course in time.

    - He found out starting times had been delayed by watching a TV tuned to ESPN from his cell, then he started doing some math.

    - He never name dropped.

    - Officers offered him a sandwich while in jail.

    - He never considered not playing.

    - He said he was shaking for over an hour.

    And he had this to say about his round: "I would say it was pretty good. "I definitely never imagined going to jail and I definitely never imagined going to jail the morning before one of my tee times."

  • Viktor Hovland one-hops it in for an eagle! He's now at 5-under after this wild chip at No. 4.

  • Tiger Woods falling apart fast

    Tiger Woods just made a second triple bogey on No. 4. With a bogey between both of his triples, he's now at 7-over on the day.

    His week here is done.

  • Scottie Scheffler is addressing his arrest this morning now with reporters at Valhalla.

  • Xander just one back

    Xander Schauffele is not backing down. Yes, his lead is gone, but he's already on the board with a 38-foot birdie putt to pull within one of Morikawa.

  • Scottie Scheffler sitting at 9-under

    Scottie Scheffler went from an early morning arrest to posting a 5-under 66 on Friday at Valhalla.

    More from Jay Busbee on the ground in Louisville.

  • Scottie Scheffler's 66 after his arrest

    Despite his chaotic morning, Scottie Scheffler is still right in the mix. He posted a 5-under 66, which pushed him to 9-under on the week. That's two back from Collin Morikawa in the lead.

  • Tiger Woods' triple-bogey

    Well, Tiger Woods may not make the weekend. Woods made a triple bogey on the second hole, which dropped him back to 4-over on the week. It marked his first triple bogey in 1,441 career holes at the PGA Championship.

    The projected cut is still at E.

  • Collin Morikawa finishes in the lead

    Collin Morikawa bogeyed the 9th, which drops him to 11-under on the week. That's still good for a two-shot lead as he enters the clubhouse.

  • Jay Busbee has more from on the ground about the tragic death this morning at Valhalla.

  • Tiger Woods tees off

    Tiger Woods' group is off and running at Valhalla. Woods is starting the day at 1-over, which is just outside the projected cutline.

  • Xander Schauffele is off ...

    When he woke up, Xander Schauffele had a three-shot lead. When he teed off just a minute ago, he trailed Colin Morikawa by three strokes. Time to play catch up.

  • Slam dunk

    Emiliano Grillo isn't have the tournament he'd hoped for — he was +3 going to 13 — but this will do:

  • Morikawa continues his roll

    Make it five straight birdies for Collin Morikawa, after converting a short 5-footer on No. 8 (his 17th hole). Morikawa has gone from two back to a two-shot lead. Birdie x 5 will do that.

  • Who is Mark Hubbard?

    Most know leader Collin Morikawa. But who's "Hubbard," who's now 10-under and in second place? Well, it's Mark Hubbard, world No. 81. Hubbard, 34, turned pro in 2012. While he has a win on the Korn Ferry Tour, he's never won on the main stage. This is just his fourth major tournament. His best finish: T51 at the 2020 PGA Championship. Safe to say, he's setting himself up for the biggest payday of his career.

  • Scottie Scheffler's legal battle

    Scottie Scheffler, attorneys say, almost certainly won't face any felony charges after his arrest on Friday morning.

    More details on his arrest and impending legal fight:

    Schauffele is set to tee off in about an hour.

  • Now Scottie Scheffler is throwing darts on his back nine. He stuck this one at the second to set up a birdie, which pushed him to 7-under.

  • Mark Hubbard catches Xander Schauffele

    Xander Schauffele's lead is no more. Mark Hubbard just made a birdie at the 18th to match Schauffele at 9-under.
