Olesen, Kisner share lead after opening round of PGA Championship

Olesen, Kisner share lead after opening round of PGA Championship

Clubhouse leader Olesen curled in a 25-foot birdie at the last to set the pace.

Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen and Kevin Kisner of the United States are leading at 67, while five players, including American Brooks Koepka who won the U.S. Open in June, are a shot behind. As he was wrapping up his round, he saw a leaderboard that showed Kevin Kisner at 8 under for the tournament, and suddenly McIlroy's bid to end a three-year drought in the majors became that much more hard.

So what's a good game plan for the world No. 2 heading into the second round?

"Like I hit a pitching wedge into number one today".

While the majority of the morning starters struggled with Quail Hollow's thick Bermuda rough, Kisner had no such trouble and was hot with the putter. "I think players spend too much work into figuring out golf courses, instead of just getting the ball in the hole". "I can't count them all", said the guy who shot 64. "That's rub of the green for you", he said. "I'm going to keep it mellow and relaxed like it's been the first two days". He got out of position off the tee, couldn't hit the right shot toward the green, and made four bogeys on a five-hole stretch early on the front nine.

Scott said it "just wasn't his day" as he suffered a double-bogey and five bogeys, but he salvaged his round two late birdies.

Wenger relieved Giroud stayed, produced opening-day victory
ARSENAL'S ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE got his Premier League career off to the ideal start against Leicester at the Emirates this evening. Giroud has been at Arsenal since 2012, and in that time has scored 99 goals for the club.

"I can't putt any worse than I did today", added the British Open champion. "Other than the two birdies I made, remaining putts didn't drop", Lahiri said.

Now Fowler, who owns four PGA TOUR titles, is looking for another breakthrough in Charlotte: his first major championship. "The pins were in such tough locations, it was hard to get the ball to feed to the hole", Spieth said after his round.

"Coming in with some short irons into these greens was definitely the key to the round".

He one-putted his final six holes, draining three putts longer than 12 feet including a 28-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. He found his putting touch last week when he shot 61 in the final round to win at Firestone, and he is riding that momentum.

His strong finish means he's in top company at one-under 70 with Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Hideki Matsuyama, Tommy Fleetwood, and Louis Oosthuizen.

"It just wasn't my day out there so I was just trying to limit the damage in the end". "I had a good week in France, but besides that, I haven't really had the results".
