Stroud is one off lead at PGA Championship

Gary Woodland PGA 2017

Dustin Johnson was just happy to be under par at the end of his opening round at the US PGA Championship after conceding that the speed of the greens has turned Quail Hollow into a particularly imposing course.

But the 24-year-old had to recover from three over par with three holes to play to card an opening 72 and lie five shots off the lead held by Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen.

He's four shots behind Grayson Murray and Brooks Koepka, who share the early clubhouse lead after three-under 68s.

"I feel like the last two months I've been playing very well without really getting any results", Olesen said. "The first hole, got off to a awful [start], I missed a four-footer, and that was kind of my day, it kind of felt like".

And they are with me", Yadav said, while addressing the gathering in Sonepur , his first stop of the three-day tour. Insiders told this newspaper that JD (U) national president Nitish Kumar may take disciplinary action against Mr.

Spieth, who began on the back nine, birdied the par-5 15th but found a greenside bunker at 16 and missed a 14-foot par putt, then missed 10-foot par putts at the first fifth and par-3 sixth holes.

The moment that summed up Spieth's day with the putter best (or is it worst)?

"This week, I worked hard on it and I got a lot of confidence in the driver". When you play safe into the greens, you give yourself very tricky putts, like the one I had - downhill, left-to-right.

"But you know, obviously I've gone through a little bit of a plateau here, and hopefully I can change that this week, especially with the past experiences that I've had competing in the PGA Championship", Day added. "I'm sure he's going to have quite a big headache". If one of your strengths is putting, which it is for me, I rely heavily on that confidence-wise, because my game may not be great one day, and I can save myself with the putting and chipping. The ball bounced back onto the fairway, causing some to wonder if it hit a piece of camera equipment instead.
