Some notes from the 1st round at the 2011 PGA Championship:
- Tiger had a great start but then lost all steam moving forward ended up carding a +7 77. To say he probably wasn’t ready for a major is an understatement.
- Steve Stricker tied major history by scoring a 63 during the first round at the Atlanta Athletic Club (25th person to score this low). He is the current leader and following not far behind is fellow Wisconsin player Jerry Kelly.
- Rory McIlroy needed some course management help on the 3rd hole where he inevitably hit a root injuring his wrist. The poor guy played threw though while spectators watched in sheer pain.
- Ryo Ishikawa almost made history of his own scoring 15+ 85 for the worst score in his professional career.
