PGA Championship - Fog Lifts To Produce Some Birdies

There was a lot of waiting around as the start of the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits was delayed due to fog this morning but that didn't stop some players from having a bit of fun with cheese (it is Wisconsin right!) and each other (those crazy European Tour players like to stick together). Some waited like Charley Hoffman the 1st alternative but to no avail he had to book a flight back to San Diego on his iPad as no one withdrew.

Once play started there were definite birdies to be had if you stayed in the fairways and out of Whistling Straits many bunkers. Ryan Moore was one of my dark horse picks and he shot a nice 69. Check out this chip shot and his TRUEs.

Bubba Watson continued his strong play with the shot of the day and a opening 68. Round one hasn't finished due to the fog so it will be interesting what the extra long day tomorrow will produce for some of the late starters today like Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Matt Kuchar, and Darren Clarke.

Nice blog and great post. I think Bubba Watson is really picking up his game. He really doesn't seem to be too far from the leader in most PGA tournaments - plus he's left handed :)
