PGA Championship day one: by the numbers – News Report


THE LEADERS – Brooks Koepka (63) at seven under; Danny Lee (64) second at six under; and Tommy Fleetwood (67) third at three under.

THE AUSSIES – Jason Day (69) at one under; Adam Scott (71); Cameron Smith (73); Lucas Herbert and Marc Leishman (74); Brendan Jones (78); Stuart Deane and Craig Hocknull (82).

BEST ROUND – 63 – Koepka, set the course record at Bethpage Black.

TALKING POINT: Tiger Woods struggled to a two-over 72, extinguishing hopes he can follow on from his Masters win in April, but Koepka’s 63 has him in position for a fourth major victory in two years.

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “I was freaking out and asking my wife, ‘Are we going to open up a Korean barbecue restaurant now?'” Second-placed Lee on a career-threatening back injury in 2017.
