Opening round pleases Tiger
Tiger Woods has put himself in the mix to claim his 15th major title after a fine round of 69 at the US PGA Championship.
The 36-year-old looked in good touch on Thursday, as he found himself just three shots off the lead going into the clubhouse behind the frontrunner Carl Pettersson of Sweden. Woods was happy with his opening round on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island and believes he is in a strong position to push going into play on Friday. He said: "Anything in the 60s is going to be a good start in a major championship. "And I'm right there." "You look up on the board, some guys four-under through six, a bunch of guys three-under through five. So it's one of those days where everyone is going to shoot six, seven, eight-under. "But the wind kicked up a little bit and it changes things quite a bit. If it had stayed pretty benign, I'm sure you would have had to have probably shot five-under to be in the top 10."
