I felt 'crap' for hitting marshal: Koepka

PGA Championship at Oak Hill moving from August to May

PGA Championship at Oak Hill moving from August to May

Daly went from contender to curmudgeon after a triple bogey on No. 18 capped an eventful 24-hour period that included singing onstage with Darius Rucker.

Then came cancer surgery for his mother, Dening, which pushed him to withdraw from the World Golf Championships Match Play. He struggled with his chipping, then three-putted for a seven. I feel like I'm better prepared to be in contention over the weekend and have a chance to win. It was just the bunker play and the greens.

Spieth said after the first round. He was happy with his round because it was hard to make putts.

Johnston shot a 7-over 78 in the first round at Quail Hollow. "It's a tough stretch of holes". At the par-5 10th hole, his first of the day, Koepka failed to convert a 4-footer for birdie and had to settle for an opening par.

Surprisingly, Koepka - one of the game's longest drivers - birdied just one of Quail Hollow's three par 5s, the 546-yard 7th, the last par-5 he played of the day. Charley Hoffman had the lone birdie on the 18th, and the only two birdies on the 17th belonged to Ernie Els and Tommy Fleetwood.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AFP) - Jim Herman, a former pro shop worker supported by US President Donald Trump, seized a one-stroke lead at four-under-par through 15 holes in Thursday's (Aug 10) opening round of the 99th PGA Championship. The man smiled and appeared to thank the U.S. Open champion for the gesture.

Study Finds Smoking Marijuana Could Have A Surprising Health Risk
The study was based on the research on 1,213 adults aged 20 and above who had used marijuana for more than 11 years. In 2005, participants were asked if they ever used marijuana, and if they had, how old they were when they started.

"The pin spots they're going to have to be very careful not to get too near edges (of the greens) because there are a lot of false edges (where the ball will roll off the green)".

The PGA Championship begins today, and it will be a memorable one for one course marshal.

Ernie Els, playing in his 100th major, slumped to a disastrous 80.

Denmark's Olesen, who won the golf World Cup in Melbourne a year ago, set the pace early with an impressive 67. He fell back with a bogey on 16 and made the turn in even-par 36 before bogeying the first, fifth and sixth holes.

Paul Casey and Gary Woodland are the early leaders at 3 under.
