Jim Furyk crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk split 11 (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling during his two-day loop of Harbour Town. He found five birdies, including a 15-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 third. His longest of the conventional variety measured 16'8" at 11 and 10'5" at 9. He made only one bogey in the lid-lifter.

In his first competitive round since winning the Open Championship with a stunning 63, Henrik Stenson hung up a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opener at the 98th PGA Championship.

That's good enough for T5 on the liveboard and means the Swede is lurking just two shots behind first-round pacesetter Jimmy Walker. A tap-in birdie at No. 2 got him under par early although he handed that shot back at the next. He also wiped out a birdie at 6 with a bogey at 9 after missing from just 3 feet but there were no more errors after that and he cashed in on some fine iron play (15 greens in regulation) with birdies at 12, 15 and 18. Stenson split 9 (of 14) fairways on Thursday and his afternoon lap of the Lower Course was only bettered by Martin Kaymer. He'll now have the chance to go out early on Friday and put himself in position to make a big bid for a second straight major.

Martin Kaymer is just a shot behind first-round leader Jimmy Walker after signing for a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opener at the 98th PGA Championship.

That's by far the best score of the afternoon wave at Baltusrol today and leaves the 2010 PGA champion in T2 alongside morning starters Emiliano Grillo and Ross Fisher. Kaymer circled five birdies and a single bogey in round one after starting from the 10th hole. He launched his move up the leaderboard with a 10'5" conversion at 15 and then added circles on the par 5s at 17 and 18. His only dropped shot came at No. 2 but he nailed birdies either side and closed with six pars after sand saves at 8 and 9. The two-time major winner split 7 (of 14) fairways on the Lower Course today and hit 13 greens in regulation.

Robert Streb styled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 33-35=68 to open his week at the 98th PGA Championship, three strokes shy of the early pacesetter Jimmy Walker.

The Kansas State product found just five (of 14) fairways but still manufactured 13 greens in regulation. Other than a 17'10" par-saver at the opening par-4 first, it was really a stress-free round for Streb. The 29-year-old circled his first birdie at the par-3 ninth, coming as a result of a lengthy 20'10" putt. His second of the day came at the par-4 11th where he stuck his 171-yard approach to 2'2" for a tap-in bird. While Streb didn't circle the most birdies during his opening round, he can take credit for one of just two bogey-free rounds on day one (Russell Henley).

Russell Henley posted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round at the 98th PGA Championship, good enough for a place inside the top 10.

The American's impressive afternoon lap of Baltusrol puts him just three swings behind pacesetter Jimmy Walker and T8 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon wave starting to finish off. Henley piped 8 (of 14) fairways but was able to hit 15 greens in regulation. The 27-year-old, who was T12 at Whistling Straits in this tournament last year, boarded the par train with a two-putt 4 at the opening hole and stayed on it for the first 15 holes. He finally snapped the sequence with a 3'1" putt at 16 and added another circle with a 19'5" conversion at 17. Henley missed from inside 5 feet at 18 for a walk-off birdie and slapped his putter in frustration but, once the anger has abated, he should be more than pleased with his day's work.

Jimmy Walker bombarded Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the PGA Championship, giving him early possession of the lead as the morning wave finishes up on Thursday.

Walker split just half of the possible 14 fairways, but managed the course nicely to swallow just one bogey. He opened on the back nine and kicked off his scoring with a 10'2" birdie roll at the par-4 13th hole. Before making the turn, he added three more circles, most notably a 14'9" splash on the par-3 16th. Walker swallowed his lone bogey on his inward nine but offset that with two more birdies and an impressive par save from 13'11" at the par-4 third. The Texan entered with just a 2-for-5 record at the PGA Championship with a T21 and T7 being the highlights. It's only 18 holes, but he's on his way to adding a third top 25 to his PGA resume.

Making his fifth career start in a major, Emiliano Grillo opened the 98th PGA Championship with a 4-under-par 31-35=66 to throw his name into the early mix.

The Argentine entered the week just 138th in strokes gained putting but an 18'7" par-saver at the third hole was just a glimpse of what the round was about to entail. After that lengthy par-saver, he followed it up with a 30'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 fourth and splashed in a 12'2" birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. Overall, he fired in five putts from outside 11 feet. The 23-year-old is always steady, tee-to-green, so if he can maintain anything close to this putting performance, he should remain right in the mix as the week progresses. The recent T12 finish at The 145th Open was his career best in a major but he's now looking to better that just two weeks later.

Brooks Koepka is battling through an ankle injury as he turns his attention toward Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course for this week's PGA Championship.

Koepka first suffered the ankle injury during the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, forcing him to withdraw after 13 holes. After that, he backed out of The Open, and importantly included "After much consideration" in his statement announcing the WD. That hinted that his return was not too far away. Two weeks later, and the status of the ankle is still in doubt. Rex Hoggard of GolfChannel.com reported on him this week and Koepka was quoted saying, "It’s one of those things I can’t really drive off my right side." On top of that he also said, "Walking is what gets it really tired, but then on top of that there’s a little pain and swelling." Koepka is currently set to give it his all this week as it's a major championship and he's dropped to ninth on the Ryder Cup standings. Gamers should be well aware of the risk involved this week.

Following a tough loss at The 145th Open, Phil Mickelson turns his attention to Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course for this week's PGA Championship, the same venue that yielded him a Wanamaker Trophy back in 2005.

Lefty opened the 2005 edition with rounds of 67-65 and cruised home with 72-72 on his way to a 4-under 276 victory (Monday finish due to weather). He bested Thomas Bjorn and Steve Elkington by just one stroke that year. It would go in the books as his first (and still only) PGA Championship win. Despite just one win, he boasts a 22-for-23 record with nine top 10s at the PGA. We know the course sets up well for Mickelson based on that 2005 victory, but the question mark lies in his ability to rebound from a heart-breaking loss at The Open two weeks ago. Despite beating third-place J.B. Holmes by 11 strokes, Lefty finished three strokes shy of the winner, Henrik Stenson. That kind of loss could certainly take its toll on a golfer. However, with four podium finishes on the season, the 46-year-old is aging rather gracefully and should still be squarely on the radar for gamers this week.

World No. 1 Jason Day hoisted the Wanamaker Trophy at the 2015 PGA Championship and makes his way to Baltusrol Golf Club this week for a chance to defend his title.

Played at Whistling Straits last year, Day put on a show at the 97th PGA Championship, beating Jordan Spieth by three strokes and clearing third place (Branden Grace) by five. This time around the Aussie arrives fresh off a T14 at the RBC Canadian Open and T22 at The Open, making this his third start in three weeks. The last time Day played three weeks in a row was THE PLAYERS in 2015. He posted rounds of 69-81 and slammed his trunk early that week. While fatigue can't be completely ignored, either can his form. The Aussie enters the week with eight top 10s in 15 starts this season, including three victories already. It goes without saying at this point in the season, but Day remains a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

Nicholas Lindheim posted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Utah Championship to earn his first Web.com Tour victory.

He finished his week two-strokes clear of second place with a 15-under 269 final tally. Lindheim circled six birdies in his final lap around GC at Thanksgiving Point, but surrendered four bogeys in the process. He landed just half of his fairways and GIR on Sunday, but a 1.556 putting average proved the difference. With this victory, he moves to 14th on the Web.com Tour money list and is now positioned to earn a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card with a strong finish to the season.

Martin Laird fashioned a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 11-under 277, up four places into a three-way T2, one adrift of champion Jhonattan Vegas.

The 33-year-old arrived this week at No. 126 in the FedExCup standings with just two top 10s in 19 events and only five events remaining until the start of the Playoffs. He was making his fifth RBC appearance with a previous best of T16 in 2009, also at Glen Abbey GC. The Scot, chasing his fourth TOUR title, first since the 2013 Valero Texas Open, departs with a season best, previously T7 at the opposite-field Barracuda, and his sixth career runner-up in his 210th career event. He began R4 in a six-way T6, three back of 54-hole leader Brandt Snedeker. Laird circled six, including three straight '3s' on Nos. 9-11, kicking off the run with a 45-footer at the par-4 ninth. His lone blemish was bogey-4 at the 12th (failed scramble). Laird leaps 47 spots to 79th in FEC points and this is his best finish on TOUR since his win at the VTO over 39 months ago.
