Stroud is one off lead at PGA Championship

"He just got drilled in the head", said Koepka.

The 53-year-old Californian was off to a so-so start.

Round of the day: A four-time European Tour victor who earlier this year partnered with fellow Dane Lucas Bjerregaard to win the inaugural GolfSixes, Olesen made six birdies, including one at the hard home hole, to make it to 4-under 67. He didn't look anything like a guy about to play his next 44 holes in 21 under.

"I drove the ball well. But when I had the chances that I had and I just couldn't get the ball to go in on the greens, that is when I get the most frustrated I can get out there". I couldn't hit a home run to save my life and I was a sucker for the curveball.

"I didn't really feel pressure at Birkdale". The greens are quick; it's going to go off the green. I was very disappointed to bogie the last, but three over is three over.

"I did a great job and holed some great putts for pars".

"With some of the pin locations, these greens are the fastest greens I've ever played", Koepka said.

"That was the most disappointing thing, that I let that get to me". It wasn't like I was building up to here.

While the 1990 Brisbane Golf Club champion played a practice round with world No.1 Dustin Johnson on Wednesday, it's not even his claim to fame.

Leishman's results in 2017 speak for themselves: top-20 on the FedEx Cup standings and a victor at one of the most prestigious tournaments on the world's most competitive circuit.

With no status on the US PGA Tour or its second tier, Deane progressed through 54 holes of qualifying to win a sudden-death, nine-hole shootout. The award is given annually to the best performing Canadian at the Open. "I'm glad I'm showing up for this week feeling like my game is in good shape as well".

He then followed with bogeys on four of the next six holes, before tallying birdies on seven and eight.

"If I was truly free, I wouldn't have cared", he said. "I had like 235 front, 250 to the hole, had a hybrid. Consistent is great, I love it, but winning is what I'm trying to do right now". I didn't make the one out of five. I just feel good around here. Wes Short Jr. could be a player to watch at the DICK's Sporting Goods Open.

No matter the time of year or the temperature, some golfers refuse to wear shorts, preferring to protect their bare legs from the sting of mosquitoes, the torment of the sun or the relentless and unforgiving gaze of fellow golfers anxious to make "white stakes" jokes.

Spieth also become the first to finish the career Slam with a victory at the PGA.

Earlier, there was hardly a breath of wind when local North Carolinian Grayson Murray struck the first tee shot at 7:20 a.m. local time (1120 GMT). Still, his runner-up finish moved him up six spots to 12th in the Charles Schwab Cup standings. But the PGA of America can't imagine having its major championship without them for the message it sends.
