PGA Championship at a glance
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) A look at Thursday’s first round of PGA Championship at 7,501-yard, par-72 Whistling Straits (all times EDT):
Leading: Dustin Johnson, who shot 66.
Pursuing: David Lingmerth at 67, then a group of eight players another shot back.
Tracking Tiger: Woods needed 33 putts on his way to a 3-over 75, nine shots out of the lead.
Key statistic: There were 12 rounds under 70 in the morning, and only two in the afternoon (Lingmerth’s 67, and Scott Piercy’s 68).
Noteworthy: In the same group, the world’s top two players, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, played to a draw, each shooting 1-under 71.
Quoteworthy: ”Whatever David ate this morning, I’d like to eat tomorrow, because that’s a heck of a round of golf in those conditions.” -Spieth on Lingmerth’s 67.
Tick tock: McIlroy, Spieth and the other player in their threesome, Zach Johnson, got put on the clock on No. 15. Most afternoon rounds took around 5 hours.
Shot of the day: McIlroy rolled up his pant leg and treaded into the shallow water beside the fifth green to flop a shot out of the lake. He got up and down to save par.
Key tee times: Spieth, McIlroy, Zach Johnson, 8:05 a.m. Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day, 1:20 p.m. Woods, Martin Kaymer, Keegan Bradley, 1:30 p.m.
