Jim Furyk shoots 65 in first round of PGA Championship
Jim Furyk shot his best first round score ever at a PGA Championship on Thursday at Oak Hill.
Jim Furyk blew up Oak Hill on Thursday with a first-round 65 that gave him an early clubhouse lead. The 65 is his best ever score in the first round of a PGA Championship and the first time he's broken 70 in the first round of a PGA since he shot a 68 in 2002.
It's also his second best score ever in any round of any major.
Furyk filled up his scorecard with a bevy of birdies before bogeying his last hole of the day (No. 9) -- the same hole Tiger Woods double bogeyed.
Here's a look at his very red scorecard:
After his round Furyk told Vince Cellini of TNT he was pleased with his performance.
"I played well last week at the Bridgestone and I felt like the golf course would be a good fit. I hit most of the fairways. The first day you just try and be positive."
Furyk's best ever finish at a PGA Championship is a T6 back in 1997 when Davis Love III won at Winged Foot.
He was one of a host of golfers who teed off early and took advantage of probably the easiest conditions the field will see all week.
