Rochester, NY (Sports Network) - Jim Furyk and Jason Dufner both opened with
three straight pars on Sunday as Furyk maintained his 1-stroke lead in the
early going of the 95th PGA Championship.
Furyk had to lay up from a tough lie on the first, but played his third to six
feet and made that for par. He followed with a pair of 2-putt pars, from 22
and 40 feet respectively.
Dufner 2-putted for par on the first and third at Oak Hill. At the second, he
drove right into the trees and scrambled for par.
Henrik Stenson, in the penultimate group, just eagled the par-5 fourth to jump
into share of second with Dufner at minus-8.
Scott Piercy, Jason Day and Masters champion Adam Scott are tied for fourth
place at minus-6.
Keegan Bradley, the 2011 champion, and Hideki Matsuyama both fired 4-under 66s
for the low round of the day. They share the clubhouse lead at 1-under 279.
Four-time champion Tiger Woods went out in 3-over 38 with a bogey at eight and
a double-bogey at nine. Around the turn, he birdied three of four holes from
the 12th to get back to even-par for his round. Woods parred the last three
holes to finish at 4-over 284.
Miguel Angel Jimenez poured in five straight birdies from the 12th to the 16th
en route to a 3-under 67. That was the second time this week that Jimenez
birdied five in a row, as he also did it in the first round from the second to
the sixth. The Spaniard ended at 2-over 282.
Tim Clark, who finished third at the 2003 PGA at Oak Hill, recorded the first
hole-in-one of the week. He aced the par-3 11th, but still struggled to a 75,
which left him at plus-10.
British Open champ and Phil Mickelson mixed four birdies, a triple bogey, a
double bogey and a bogey in a round of 2-over 72. The 2007 PGA winner ended
the tournament at 12-over 292.
