PGA Championship: Furyk, Scott lead after first round


Jim FurykROCHESTER, NY – The top of the leader board has an multinational feel after one day of play at the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club.

American Jim Furyk and Australian Adam Scott, the champion of this year’s Masters, lead the field at five-under through the first round. Canadian David Hearn and Englishman Lee Westwood sit one shot back at four-under par.

Tiger Woods was one-under playing his 18th hole on Thursday before a double-bogey saw him finish six shots off the lead at +1.

Here’s reaction from the leaders after the first round in Rochester.
