SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) â€” A brief look at the first round of the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits:
Leading: Among players who finished the round, Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari both shot 68. Ernie Els and Matt Kuchar were still on the course at 4-under.
Chasing: Jason Day, Ryan Moore and Charles Howell III all shot 69. Darren Clarke and Simon Khan were on the course at 3-under.
Hazy start: Fog delayed the start and pushed back tee times by three hours, 10 minutes. Forty minutes later, it rolled back in and forced another six-minute suspension.
Crouching Tiger?: Coming off his worst week ever as a pro, Woods started with back-to-back birdies for the first time since the 2009 Buick Open and shot 1-under 71.
Howell did that end?: Teeing off at No. 10 with the wind at his back, Howell ran off four straight birdies. But like almost everyone else, he found the front nine tougher. It played more than a half-stroke harder than the back.
Shot of the day: Watson hammered his drive on the 587-yard fifth hole so far â€” 445 yards by his calculations â€” that he had only a lob wedge for his second shot and an easy two-putt birdie.
Fashion police: John Daly â€” who else â€” went with orange harlequin pants, shirt and cap and could have been mistaken for a construction cone or an out-of-season snowmobile driver.
Quotable: "I got to eat three breakfasts, so that's always good." â€” Woods on how he spent time during the delay.
