PGA Championship -- Day 1 Wrap-Up

It's Glory's Last Chance!

The big story yesterday was how Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth would do.  The two wunderkinds combined to win four majors in a row before Zach Johnson broke through at the British Open a few weeks ago, so they are naturally the focus of attention.  But they both settled for quiet 1-under par rounds -- solid performances that by no means leave them out of contention, but not enough to be in the top 10.  Meanwhile, our old friend Dustin Johnson has the first-round lead for the third major in a row.  But of course, we are rooting for Campbellsville native J.B. Holmes to become the first Kentuckian to win a major since Gay Brewer won the 1967 Masters:

1.  D. Johnson-6 (66)

2.  D. Lingmerth (SWE):  -5 (67)

T3.  J. Day (AUS):  -4 (68)
T3.  H. English-4 (68)
T3.  R. Henley-4 (68)
T3.  J.B. Holmes-4 (68)
T3.  M. Jones (AUS):  -4 (68)
T3.  M. Kuchar-4 (68)
T3.  D. Lee (NZL):  -4 (68)
T3.  S. Piercy-4 (68)
