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.
He will play again with Thomas Bjorn and Peter Uihlein at 1:55 p.m. ET on Friday.
