The reigning US Open champion was part-way through his second round at Muirfield Village when play was suspended for a second time, due to the threat of lightning around 2.45pm local time (7.45pm UK time).

With all players and caddies required to leave the course due to safety reasons, Woodland headed for the golf carts closest to the hole he was on and tried to make a quick getaway to sheltered ground.
