Konners had a bird on all five levels and brought in a 67 (-5) card to give himself a two-stroke lead over the top of the PGA Championship.
His map indicates that it was a short distance on the beach. It does not appear to be the case.
I would say it’s impossible for this cycle not to be stressed, Konners said. You can’t let yourself go into a hole. It is very demanding. I was lucky to have a good day. I made her as stress-free as possible.
With headwinds in the last five holes, the 29-year-old Canadian managed to take two photos equally. He made a bird with a long shell from 55 feet away.
Konners lead two strikes against six players, including American Brooks Kopka, who started his day with a double wagon.
Cameron Davis, Keegan Bradley, Victor Hovland, Aaron Wise, and Horsfield Medal also signed 69 cards.
Only seven golfers have played under the 70 mark, the lowest total in the first round of the PGA Championship since 2002 at Hazeltine.
Konners said I knew during my preparations that it would be possible to have a good round and five or six shots equally. Today I started thinking I could do it.
Nobody has a greater need to remove hits than Koepka. From his first hole in this major tournament, he sent his tee off the field. Koepka scored a goal for a two buggy cart and the hardest part of the ocean track had yet to reach.
But we’re talking about a major tournament and Quebeca here. He is at his peak in these situations. The American had six birds after that to climb to second place.
You cannot make these mistakes if you want to win. I have to be more focused, said Koepka, who has only played two tournaments in the past three months. I don’t know if it was because I didn’t play much, but it was just stupid. At least I managed to put myself together.
Left-handed veteran Mickelson elephant also pulled themselves together. He had committed four ghosts in his first six holes, but he scored only the birds and barrows to turn in 70 cards.
Tournament champion Colin Morikawa and former US Open champion Gary Woodland also had a -2 points total.
Dustin Johnson, the best player in the world, faced many difficulties. He managed only one bird and made two double mistakes, the last of which was on the Eighteenth Banner.
Johnson played 76 and may miss the weekend rounds in two consecutive majors in one year for the first time in his career.
Rory McIlroy, returning from a win in Quail Hollow two weeks ago, sent his first starting point in the water. I got away from the buggy, but his ride didn’t improve. McIlroy completed the course in 75 strokes and had the worst start of his PGA career.
MacKenzie Hughes (75) and Adam Haddwin (77) are the other two Canadians who will be competing in this tournament. They are respectively ranked 77 and 110.
