He was at 8-under 132, along with two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka.
All of them are chasing Gary Woodland, whose 66 before the rain rolled through Friday left him 10 under for the championship.
After the third and final stop of his post-round media blitz, at the end of a 13-hour workday in 90-degree heat, Tiger Woods trudged up the steps of the Bellerive clubhouse and into the air-conditioned comfort of the locker room.
Jason Day has three birdies and two bogeys through eight holes of his second round and is well placed to climb from his four under total when the second round resumes on day three.
Kisner made bogey on No. 9 and finished the day with a 64, one stroke behind Woodland and one ahead of Brooks Koepka, victor of the past two U.S. Opens.
Tiger Woods is now three-under but the American multiple major victor was only through seven holes of his second round when play was stopped. The Aussie's only top-10 showing in the past 12 majors was ninth a year ago at Augusta. He was helped by a marvellous stroke at the 14th where he pitched in from the back of the green, but the abiding moment was he flew the putting surface once more with a wedge in his hands. To be able to come back out this morning and play nicely was good.
Only a three-putt bogey at the fifth hole halted his progress, though he put the setback quickly behind him to birdie the next three holes.
As expected, low scores are there for the taking in the second round of the PGA Championship.
On Saturday morning, Woods took the course to finish his second round.
No one paid more dearly than Woodland.
"I have my brother on the bag, and he's doing a great job, really enjoyed it".
"We have to be aggressive, pars just won't be enough".
The 28-year-old, who is ranked 75th in the world, watched his tee shot pitch on the front fringe of the green before rolling in to huge roars from the galleries which could be heard around the course.
A smiling Wallace celebrated as he walked up the fairway then dug the ball out of the hole, kissed it and tossed it into the crowd.
Paul Casey's grip on an automatic Ryder Cup qualifying place after a missed cut left him vulnerable to being overtaken by Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen.
Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol.
"I'm happy with the way I scored considering how I played", said Rose.
"I will remember this forever". So yeah, you really don't see that every day - or, really, ever.
