Paul Casey found himself staring at a bogey-free round after 13 holes but fell off his horse from that point on to settle for a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the PGA Championship.
The Englishman arrived without any good form to lean on but he flipped that script early with three birdies and six pars on his outward nine. The wind starting whipping on his way into the clubhouse, though, and the scores started to add up quickly. He traded two birdies with a bogey and a closing double on his way in. "This has been a strange return to golf. I admit, I just talked to Dennis Paulson and admitted I've struggled with the lack of energy that we've been experiencing the last few weeks and this week feels like there's a little bit more there." All it took was a major championship to kick some life back into Casey's game. Eclipsing the field by 3.115 strokes today, this will go in the books as his best round relative to the field since the restart (13th round played).

Brendon Todd had a disappointing Sunday last week in Memphis but bounced right back today with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 to share a piece of the first-round lead at the PGA Championship, alongside Jason Day.
Todd held the solo lead after 36 and 54 holes last week at the WGC-FedEx but swallowed a 5-over 75 on Sunday to finish T15. When asked how long it took him to get over it he responded, "Once I landed here, I felt like I was very over it. So Monday afternoon." Todd also spoke about how in practice rounds this week he was hitting having to hit woods into greens on the par 4s but the fairways firmed up today so it was much more manageable for a golfer like Todd who sits near the bottom of driving distance stats on the TOUR. He used his iron play today to give himself scoring chances but the flat stick did a lot of the heavy lifting. Todd converted five times from outside of nine feet today including a trio from the 22-to-30 foot range. He walked off the course ranked 3rd in SG Putting (+3.417). Remarkably, this will be the ninth time this season that Todd has led or co-led after any round but the first time in his career he's helding a piece of the first-round lead.

Bryson DeChambeau bobbed and weaved his way toward an eventful 2-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the PGA Championship, positioning himself just outside of the top 20 after day one.
The bulked-up Cali kid gained 1.791 strokes off-the-tee today but did so with two different drivers. He played his first seven holes with the first one before snapping it when bending down to pick up the tee. After the round he said it was a shaft he's been using for over a year so wear-and-tear just won out in this case. He was able to replace it as the club was damaged during play instead of damaged out of frustration (he would have not been able to replace it, if that were the case). DeChambeau didn't skip a beat with the new big stick as he walked off the course ranked 2nd in driving distance and middle of the pack in fairays hit (7-of-14; T73). The flat stick also contributed with four conversions from outside of 10 feet including a 26'1" birdie bomb at the 9th. The SMU product is still searching for his first top 10 in a major championship.

Four-time past champ and World No. 15 Tiger Woods signed for a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after the first round of the 102nd PGA Championship, currently T17 and three adrift of past champ and clubhouse leader Jason Day.
This is the 44-year-old's 21st PGA with nine prior top 10s, most recently a solo 2nd two tries ago in 2018 at Bellerive, where he closed with a day-tying-low 64 but came up two swings shy of champion Brooks Koepka. His most recent victory came in 2007 (Southern Hills) and prior to Koepka last season, was the last to successfully defend a PGA title. Overall, this is the California native's 85th major with 41 prior top 10s and 15 wins, most recently at the 2019 Masters, where he came from two back with 2-under 70 to win by one. He checked in this week off a T40 at the Memorial three weeks ago, his only start in the eight weeks since the Return to Golf. On seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, the Stanford product gained 0.542 strokes off-the-tee, 0.389 approaching, 0.597 around, and 1.463 tee-to-green. He offset three bogeys with five birdies, posting 1.583 putts per GIR and 1.325 SG: Putting with 28 total putts, highlighted by a 32'7" splash for birdie at hole 13, and a 20'10" par-saver at 18 as he made the turn.

World No. 104 Brendan Steele styled a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in Round 1 of the PGA Championship in San Francisco and finds himself T2 on the leaderboard out of the morning wave.
This is the Californian's seventh PGA, first since a missed cut in 2018 (Bellerive), with two prior top 25s. His T12 at the 2015 edition at Whistling Straits is his best major finish in 18 tries, and has gone 4-for-5 in the Return to Golf with two top-15 finishes, including a T6 at the Travelers four starts ago, highlighted by a day-tying-low, 10-birdie 66 in R2. On six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, the 37-year-old posted a 0.119 SG: Off-the-Tee, 0.416 SG: Approach, 1.651 SG: Around, and 2.083 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 7 (failed sand save), offset by five birdies at 4, 6, 13, 15 and 17, two from between 32 and 37 feet. The UC-Riverside alum gained 2.625 strokes with the flat stick, which doesn't even include a 53'6" bomb from the fringe for birdie-3 at 15.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Englishman mustered four (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.534 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.063 approaching and 0.920 around-the-green.
