JUSTIN Rose was eight shots off the lead of the PGA Championship at Wentworth after two rounds.

Overnight heavy rain delayed the start of today's third round as Rose looks to improve his position.

The north Hampshire golfer scored a 70 (-2) in his opening round on Thursday, as he recovered after dropped shots on the opening three holes before an eagle on the fourth.

On Friday, Rose scored a 73 (+1) as once again he dropped a shot at the third and ended the round with three bogeys and two birdies.

The joint leaders going into the third round are Thomas Bjorn and Shane Lowry on (-10), with Rose on -2.
