PGA Championship 2016 - Round 1 Reports - Scores

Jimmy Walker leads with opening 65

A drab year for Jimmy Walker took a turn for the worse two weeks ago at the British Open, when he stayed in what was dubbed the ''frat house'' at Royal Troon with Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson.

Walker was the only one to miss the cut.

He still stayed the weekend. He just stayed away from the golf course, and his clubs. How does one kill time in such a small Scottish town?

''When the first guy comes back and he's ready for a cocktail, you have one,'' Walker said.

Thursday in the PGA Championship, the drinks were on Walker.

In the final major of the year, Walker finally saw enough putts to fall at Baltusrol that he matched his low score in a major with a 5-under 65 and wound up leading a major for the first time in his career.

Just like that, a stale year came to life.

Walker had a one-shot lead over two-time major champion Martin Kaymer, Emiliano Grillo and Ross Fisher.

And for Henrik Stenson, a great year might get even better. Coming off his record performance at the British Open, the Swede had three birdies on the back nine as the sweltering heat gave way to dark clouds and 20 mph gusts. That gave him a 67, leaving him two shots behind. Stenson is trying to join Ben Hogan in 1953 as the only players to win back-to-back majors at age 40.

''It's going to be a great season for me,'' Stenson said. ''But at the same time, I want to give myself a chance to try to make it the best season.''

It wasn't the best of times for Dustin Johnson or Rory McIlroy.

Johnson, the U.S. Open champion with a chance to go to No. 1 in the world, was in the trees, in the water and couldn't get out of a bunker. He managed only one birdie in a round of 77 that wasn't enough to beat 15 of the club pros at Baltusrol.

He wasn't alone in his misery. McIlroy took 35 putts and didn't make a single birdie in his round of 74 that left him so frustrated that he returned to Baltusrol late in the day with only his putter.

Walker's year has been so mediocre that he has finished within five shots of the winner only once this year, at Torrey Pines. He is on the verge of falling out of the top 50 in the world ranking and hasn't given as much thought to Ryder Cup with qualifying a month away from ending.

''I feel like all year it's just been real stale and stagnant,'' Walker said. ''It's just ebbs and flows of golf. Just haven't been scoring. ... It's frustrating. I would have loved to have had a better year than I've had so far to this point, but I know there's always time to play well at the end of the year.''

Kaymer had the best score in the afternoon, when the blend of poa annua and bent grass on the Baltusrol greens became a little more difficult to navigate.

Baltusrol still allowed for good scoring. Twenty players were at 68 or better, a list that included defending champion Jason Day.

Day played in the morning group with McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, and he was the only player without much stress. Mickelson, just 11 days after that magnificent duel with Stenson at Royal Troon, was 4 over through 11 holes when he rallied with a trio of birdies late in his round to salvage a 71.

''It's not the start I wanted. It's not indicative of how I'm playing,'' he said. ''But I'm back to where tomorrow, if I play the way I've been playing, I should be OK.''

Jordan Spieth only regretted one hole, the par-4 seventh, when he lost his ball so far to the right he had to chip back into thick rough and wound up three-putting for a double bogey. That was his lone mistake. He rolled in big putts on the 15th for par, 16th for birdie and closed with a two-putt birdie to get back to even-par 70.

Grillo had a chance to at least join Walker in the lead when he was at 4 under with the final two holes par 5s. He made par on both. Fisher made birdie on the two closing par 5s for his 66. Kaymer started his afternoon round on the back nine and kept it together with two pars, including a 35-yard bunker shot on No. 8 to within 3 feet.

''There's nothing easy on the golf course today,'' Kaymer said. ''I just didn't miss many fairways and therefore, you can create some birdie chances. But at the end of the day you still need to make the putts.''

Walker kept the ball in play off the tee until late in his round, and he was particularly sharp with his scrambling out by getting up-and-down six times.

''I'm a good putter,'' Walker said. ''Like good shooters, just keep shooting. I'm just going to keep putting, and they're going to start going in.''

Major winners struggle

There comes a moment in every tournament when a player knows the day is lost. That moment can come late in the proceedings, like in this year’s British Open, when Phil Mickelson dueled Henrik Stenson right to the final holes.

Or it can come very, very early, as it did with Dustin Johnson at the PGA Championship, when he double-bogeyed the third hole and kicked off a tailspin that, in one afternoon, undid all the good he’d done in majors all season long.

Johnson, along with Stenson and Danny Willett, made up this year’s version of the famed major winners grouping, the trio of calendar-year winners that the PGA Championship traditionally pairs together in the first two rounds. Johnson’s U.S. Open trophy, Stenson’s Claret Jug and Willett’s green jacket were enough to get them yoked together, but they weren’t enough to get two-thirds of the trio playing anything approaching decent golf.

“I think all of us are pretty happy with what’s happened this year. We all had our major breakthroughs, if you want to put it that way in the majors,” Stenson said after the round. “At the same time, we’ve got to move on. We’re in the middle of a busy season. I’ve got a lot of golf to play. It’s this week here, the final major, and then we have the Olympics, the FedExCup, The Ryder Cup, Race to Dubai.”

Johnson won’t be playing in a couple of those events, and he might not be playing at the PGA Championship much longer, either. His card was the ugliest of the three, two double-bogeys the lowlight of a round that included a cringeworthy +5 performance on the wicked “Sobering Seven” that kick off Baltusrol.

On the two closing par 5s, holes that he should have devoured, Johnson could only manage a par on the 17th, and then dunked his tee shot on 18. That’s like LeBron James missing one layup, and then knocking himself unconscious on the backboard on another. He finished with the dreaded double-hockey-sticks—77—and you can feel free to make the jokes yourself about a guy who married Wayne Gretzky’s daughter.

“He just didn’t have a good day out there,” Stenson said of Johnson. “We all know what he’s capable of doing with a golf ball and on a golf course. I’m sure he’ll bounce back shortly.”

Stenson himself, just 11 days removed from his epic British Open win, was the only one of the trio to produce anything approaching decent golf. He rolled through the opening nine at a decent even-par, and then carded birdies on 12, 15, and 18 to finish at three under, two strokes off the lead and tied for fifth overall.

“I feel I can carry that momentum I had at The Open Championship,” he said, “and I guess the start shows that we’re not too far away when we teed it up again.” The question for Stenson, of course, is how well he’ll be able to sustain his momentum from Troon. Will that catch up to him before Sunday?

Willett, meanwhile, might still be sleeping off the effects of his unlikely and unexpected Augusta celebration; he’s placed T37 and T53 at the two majors since then. By the time he missed a birdie putt at the 17th, he was talking to himself and scolding his putter. He would go on to finish 1-over for the round, six strokes off the lead.

Both Willett and Johnson have placed themselves in precarious positions to even see the weekend; Jimmy Walker has set the first-round bar at five-under, and evening rains are likely to soften up the course and lead to even lower scores. At least the trio is slated to go off at 8:30 a.m. Friday morning; if you’re going to miss the cut, you may as well get a jump on the weekend.

Jason Day finally off to a good start

For the first time in 2016, Jason Day has started a major in the 60s.

The defending PGA champion, who didn’t see Baltusrol’s host Lower Course for the first time until Wednesday, opened with a smooth 2-under 68 that has him in contention on Day 1.

“I’m very excited about how I hit it today,” he said. “I hit a lot of good quality shots. Hasn’t been like that lately. To be able to go out there and hit it exactly where I’m [aiming] and see the shot and what I need to do and actually execute it was exciting for me. Really positive stuff going into the next three rounds.”

Day hit 17 greens in regulation, only converting on three of those opportunities. However, as conditions toughened in the afternoon heat, Day’s round looked better and better. The Aussie probably didn’t anticipate the good score, given both his recent major starts and the start of this week.

He opened the Masters in April with 72-73. He started the U.S. Open with a 76 that was the difference between him winning and losing. He kicked off the British Open with 73. Perhaps chalk that up to the stress Day has talked about so much this season, as he did again on Wednesday.

“There’s a little bit of expectation on my shoulders,” Day said. “You’ve got to come out and fire on all cylinders and get yourself up the leaderboard and show people that you’re there and ready to win. I think if you try a little bit too hard sometimes, you can kind of shoot yourself in the foot.”

Then there’s the matter of his family’s medical problems. His children, Dash and Lucy, were sick heading into the week. They got Day sick. His wife, Ellie, had an allergic reaction on Tuesday night during the PGA of America’s champions dinner in Day’s honor, forcing the couple to the hospital and a 2 a.m. discharge. Day intentionally took Monday off. Tuesday was spent tending to his kids, then wife. Wednesday was his only chance to see Baltusrol, getting in 18 holes despite visible exhaustion.

As it turns out, Day views it all as a positive.

“It was kind of a blessing really to come out yesterday, play 18 holes real quick and then get out of here,” he said.

All will be forgotten if this good start leads to a successful defense of his first major title.

He said, “I’ve always said that winning takes care of everything.”

Late rally saves Phil Mickelson's round

Phil Mickelson won the PGA Championship the last time it was at Baltusrol in 2005. He played some of his best golf ever only 11 days ago at the British Open . And on Thursday, the New York-area crowd had his back even before he teed off.

The momentum he had to start the PGA Championship was there.

Until it wasn't.

When Mickelson stepped onto the 10th tee for his opening shot Thursday, the cheers and shouts went on for so long that the two other players with him - defending champion Jason Day and two-time PGA champion Rory McIlroy - didn't seem to exist.

But Mickelson's first shot of the day sailed well left into the gallery. He hit into a bunker, blasted out to about 5 feet and missed the putt. It was the first of four bogeys in his opening 11 holes. He wasn't driving very well. He wasn't putting much better. After the frustrating start, the 46-year-old rallied for a 1-over 71 with three birdies over his last seven holes. He was six strokes behind leader Jimmy Walker.

''It's not the start I wanted,'' Mickelson said. ''It's not indicative of how I'm playing. But I'm back to where tomorrow, if I play the way I've been playing, I should be OK.''

Mickelson, in a bright pink shirt, turned it around with a birdie on the tough 503-yard third hole.

''That was a big birdie,'' Mickelson said. ''I hit two really good shots. If I miss that fairway, I probably have to lay up and fight for par again. Instead I hit a really good drive, a good 8-iron to 15, 18 feet behind the hole and made it. That kind of got things going.''

Mickelson is coming off one of the best tournaments he's ever played - a 63 in the first round, a 65 in the final round at Royal Troon - and still lost by three to Henrik Stenson, who had the lowest score in major championship history.

Mickelson finished second for the 11th time in his career in a major.

''Unfortunately, I didn't get off to a great start (at Baltusrol), like I did at the British,'' Mickelson said. ''It's always easier. You shoot a good low number the first day, you've got momentum.''

Mickelson had three bogeys starting in the featured morning group along with McIlroy and Day. He still was only 2 over going to the 17th and 18th, both par 5s, a chance for him to get back to even par. Instead, he kept going the wrong direction.

He missed his drive so far right on the 17th that it landed just off the 15th tee box. Instead of having the gallery around the 15th tee and the gallery lining the 17th fairway move out of the way, he hit a wedge over them into deep rough. His third shot was over the green and he had to make a 7-foot putt just for par.

When Mickelson got in deep rough on the 18th, he tried to hit with fairway metal, but it squirted out and only the deep rough kept it from going in the water. He pulled his next shot into the gallery, chipped it to about 10 feet and missed. On the easiest hole at Baltusrol, Mickelson made bogey.

Mickelson said the 18th was the ''really only good birdie hole'' on the course.

''Just lost focus,'' Mickelson said. ''Just antsy, little jumpy, just lost the rhythm and made some terrible swings. There's no real answer.''

While Mickelson got off to a subpar beginning, he said the crowd support was what really carried him along.

There wasn't an empty seat in the bleachers on the 10th tee when Mickelson arrived just before his 8:30 a.m. start, they cheered wildly for him. When he hit his tee shot into the gallery, Mickelson walked up to them and said, ''Good morning, guys,'' and about 100 of them returned the greeting.

Mickelson said of all the support the people in New Jersey and New York have given him over the years, ''today was the day that it helped the most.''

''I remember walking off of No. 3 and a guy said, 'Hey, you've got a lot of golf left, you're not out of this, let's get going,''' Mickelson said. ''He's right. Got a lot of golf left. I came back and made some birdies.''

Rory McIlroy struggles with his putter

Two holes into the final major of the year, Rory McIlroy was starting to lose patience.

He missed a 10-foot birdie putt on his opening hole at No. 10 on Thursday. He hit another beautiful approach into the 11th hole at Baltusrol, 10 feet below the hole, and missed that. Even after Phil Mickelson and Jason Day had left the green, McIlroy stayed behind, looking at the cup from a different direction.

It was a precursor for more misery with his putting at the PGA Championship.

When his opening round ended, McIlroy had 35 putts and no birdies. His 4-over 74 was the first time he failed to break par in the opening round of the PGA Championship.

''You give yourself chances the first couple of holes, you don't convert,'' he said. ''You want to get off to a good start. I feel like if I had holed one of those first two, it might have been a different story of the day. You get a little momentum and you get it going.''

Instead, it kept sliding in the wrong direction.

His 8-foot par putt on the 13th never had a chance. His 5-foot birdie putt on the 17th never got to the hole.

He believes he is driving the ball as well as ever, which goes a long way at Baltusrol. His irons felt good, except for a few loose ones.

''Just when I get on the green, it's a different story,'' he said.

McIlroy was nine shots behind after one round, and that doesn't bode well. In his four victories in the majors, he was never more than one shot behind. The only major he won with any round over par was a 75 in the wind at Kiawah Island four years ago in the PGA Championship.

''I haven't won this tournament from this position before, so I'll need a low one tomorrow,'' McIlroy said. ''I think first and foremost, I have to play a good round to get into the weekend tomorrow. That's the first objective, and then go from there.''

This is the second major this year that McIlroy has put himself well behind after the opening round. He never recovered at Oakmont, missing the cut in the U.S. Open.

Making it even more pressing is that he is on the verge of going a second straight year without a major. Putting has been a problem all year, dating to February when he decided to switch to a cross-handed grip as he prepared for the Masters.

This time, he felt he simply was tricked by poa annua greens that look faster than they really are.

''I'm struggling with the pace,'' he said. ''I think you saw out there, there was a couple of putts from quite a short distance that I left short. That's the thing that sort of surprised me all week. They look much quicker than they are. They look much quicker than they putt. ... So I just need to be a little bit more aggressive, a little bit more free flowing with my stroke. Because when I did hit a couple by, I was able to hole the ones coming back.''

Thursday was no time to practice. The heat was oppressive and drained everyone of energy. McIlroy decided to head back to his house and rest. He returned Thursday evening with coach Michael Bannon and putted for more than an hour.

Even as he left Baltusrol, he was confronted with a score on his card that he didn't see coming. Given the chances he had, he figured something around par would have been the worst he could post. Instead, only three tour players had a worse score among the morning wave.

And that card didn't have any birdies on it.

''I can't remember the last time I went without a birdie,'' he said. 'I'll stay as patient as I can and as hard as I can and hopefully turn it around.''
