2010 US PGA Championship

Jason Day one off the lead at Whistling StraitsJASON DAY is just one off the pace after a fog interrupted first round of the 92nd US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on Lake Michigan.

The young Aussie star shot a three under par 69 to trail joint leaders Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari in the final major for 2010.

Day, who continues to battle a chronic sinus infection, had to sit around for three hours after his scheduled 7am tee time was delayed and many of the afternoon starters will have to complete their rounds tomorrow morning.
“I felt like my game’s been pretty strong,” the 22 year old said.
“It’s been moving in the right direction, but the biggest problem with me has always been my health.
“I felt awful the last two days last week in Akron and was a little light-headed today. I ate six or seven (energy) bars and drank about 10 bottles of water.
Australia’s three young guns all played well, with Michael Sim finishing with a 70 and Marc Leishman 71.

Veteran Steve Elkington also managed a 71, while Stuart Appleby looked set for another special round when he birdied his first three holes. He didn’t maintain the momentum and slipped to 72.

Geoff Ogilvy struggled to a 74 while Adam Scott was on even after 13 holes when play was suspended due to failing light.

Tiger Woods had something of resurgence after his shocker last week and ended a career-worst streak of seven consecutive rounds without breaking par by posting 71.

Woods rolled in three birdie putts in his first four holes but had to wait till the 18th for a fourth.

“To shoot something under par, that was the goal today,” Woods said.
“I got off to a quick start and all of a sudden I felt like I could shoot something in the 60s.”
