BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (AP) -- First-round play at the opening round
of the 90th PGA Championship has been suspended because of
darkness. Robert Karlsson and Jeev Milkha Singh are the
clubhouse leaders after shooting 2-under 68. Andres Romero also is
at 2-under through 15 holes.
Sergio Garcia is in a foursome that trails by one shot. They
include Ken Duke, Billy Mayfair and Sean O'Hair. Phil Mickelson and Anthony Kim were among those who shot even-par 70. Under the tough conditions at Oakland Hills, par was considered a very good score today.
Padraig Harrington is trying to add another major to his back-to-back British Open titles. Harrington opened with three straight birdies and was 3-under-par through four holes. But he struggled after that, finishing with a 1-over 71. Play was called for darkness after an hour and 25-minute rain delay late in the day.
