It's been touch-and-go, weather-wise, at the PGA Championship. But regardless of whether they're on the greens, some of the big golfers are talking today.

Rain drove spectators, volunteers and golfers from the greens and to shelter earlier today -- that meant a pause in practice round play.

It also meant standing water problems, as well as back-up problems around parking lots and long lines for shuttle buses, which did not run during the rain.

Doors re-opened to spectators at about 11 a.m.

Then shortly after noon, play at the PGA Championship was suspended due to dangerous weather conditions, and spectator drop-offs were paused.

PGA Championship officials tweeted a statement about the inconvenience during the storms:

Previous reporting: 

UPDATE – PGA officials say play will not resume Tuesday until 11 a.m. CT at Bellerive.

TOWN & COUNTRY (KMOX) - As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, the gates at Bellerieve Country Club for the 2018 PGA Championship were temporarily closed to spectators as a thunderstorm moved into the area. All players have cleared the course, driving range and putting green. 

The earliest that play may resume will be at 9:15 a.m. CT, per PGA Championship officials.

Weather warning signs were posted around the course, asking fans and volunteers who were already in the gates to seek shelter. 

Before play was suspended, four-time PGA Championship winner Tiger Woods was seen on the driving range. He is scheduled to speak today in a noon press conference. 

Also scheduled to speak today are Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy.
