PGA Championship Leaderboard: NC State Alum Carl Pettersson Leads After 1st Round

Carl Pettersson had an early start Thursday, which proved advantageous. In the calm conditions, he shot a six-under 66 and leads the PGA Championship after the first round.

"I think we've seen it about as easy as it can get today, this morning," said Carl Pettersson, who birdied three of his first four holes and went on to sign for a six-under-par 66, good for a one-shot lead over Rory McIlroy and Gary Woodland.

I guess it was a bit warm.

"I'm so happy it started blowing, because it was so hot this morning," said Bradley, who started his round on the back nine with a birdie on 10 and an eagle on 11. "On the 14th tee was one of the hottest moments of my life."

Whole lotta "that's what she said" there, Keegan. Whole lot.

Pettersson has a one-stroke lead on Rory McIlroy and a few other guys at -5.

Tim Clark is five strokes off the pace at -1.
