It was the best score of the afternoon as the greens became faster by the hour. As the first round was headed for a conclusion, only 14 players managed to shoot in the 60s.

This will be the highest score to lead after the first round of the PGA Championship since Matt Kuchar shot 67 at Whistling Straits in 2010.
