Spieth cards opening one-over 72 as Koepka shines at PGA

Spieth cards opening one-over 72 as Koepka shines at PGA

England's Paul Casey birdied three of his first five holes to grab a share of the lead early in Thursday's opening round of the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. "It is like Europe as well, but the courses vary and are completely different, so it is tough coming and learning that".

Starting from the 10th, Spieth made the turn in level par after a birdie-bogey opening nine, but he stumbled badly on the back, bogeying the first, fifth and sixth holes to find himself three over.

Spieth also bogeyed the first, one of the new holes constructed at Quail Hollow immediately after it hosted last year's Wells Fargo Championship, after failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker. That came on the reachable par-4 14th, where instead of laying up, Spieth drove to the front of the green, then sent his 70-footer wide right and eventually off the green before two-putting for par.

"I feel like I played pretty solid", he said.

Grayson Murray, who grew up in North Carolina, Peter Uihlein and club pro Rich Berberian Jr. all hit the green and made par.

"The pin spots they're going to have to be very careful not to get too near edges (of the greens) because there are a lot of false edges (where the ball will roll off the green)".

Perhaps as much as anything, Perry is just pleased to have rejuvenated his career.

"But you know, obviously I've gone through a little bit of a plateau here, and hopefully I can change that this week, especially with the past experiences that I've had competing in the PGA Championship", Day added. "I felt bad about it", Koepka later told reporters.

"I'll give you an example I had 72 yards from my second shot on the eighth hole, I walked up to it and I had nowhere really to land my second shot - maybe two or three yards to land it with a pitch shot".

"It was very hard for me to be on the golf course and even think about actually playing", Day said.

"I know people who work for the Trump organisation who joke with me, "You're the only one who has got a cheque from the President". "I did what I was trying to do". Never feel like you're out of the hole.
