The early session of the second round hasn't been too kind for those on the course.

Koepka, who is the reigning two-time U.S. Open champion, could also become the reigning two-time PGA Championship victor with a victory at Bethpage.

Just in time, they did.

"You've just got to keep battling and find a way to get through it".

It was a convincing theory even before Koepka added the variable of an opening round 63.

He will be playing alongside defending champion Koepka and Open champion Francesco Molinari. Koepka called the opening putt the defining moment of the day.

Koepka sank a 40-foot birdie putt at the 10th, his opening hole of the first round, and unleashed a dominating performance, becoming only the third player to shoot 63 twice in majors after Fiji's Vijay Singh and Australian Greg Norman.

On Thursday's "Off the Bench", Danny Kanell and Raja Bell delve into Koepka live from the PGA Championship in Bethpage, NY. "I think it's deceiving to look at first two days versus last two because I think I just got away with stuff random days that happened to be coupled together".

Johnson played alongside Spieth and reached 5 under for the tournament approaching the 18th, only to miss the fairway and go over the green.

"The whole of England and Wales is buzzing with excitement in anticipation of the massive summer of cricket ahead". If Gayle shows up in similar form during the World Cup, it could spell ominous signs for teams around the world.

"Obviously, everybody in NY is going to be cheering for him, and it's going to be loud, especially if he makes a putt".

He opened with a pair of double bogeys on the back nine and ruined a torrid start to the front nine - two birdies and a 30-foot eagle in a four-hole stretch - with a pair of three-putt bogeys.

Woods managed to get under par but only briefly. It seemed the brutish man and the brutish course were a match made in heaven. Tiger stunned last summer's PGA Championship victor by waiting for him to complete his final round to congratulate him on a job well done; Koepka returned the favor at Augusta. The U.S. Open's cut is the top 60 players including ties. "We'll find out maybe". His muscle memory from winning the 2002 U.S. Open here couldn't overcome the lack of practice, and the lack of any competitive rounds since he won his fifth green jacket and made the world stop and cry. In recent majors, the American looks almost impossible to beat.

"I'm not 100% hitting it as well as I did a couple of years ago", Spieth said. "There was no mentions of past year, but they were nice", Fleetwood said of the crowd.

The nearest competitor after Lee is Tommy Fleetwood of England, who is four strokes back of Koepka at three under par. The 43-year-old American is coming off a calf injury that was originally thought to be a torn Achilles. Don't get me wrong, it was great. "It doesn't hurt. I don't have any pain. I guess that would have been pretty good".

The others at two-under are recent victor Sung Kang, former Canadian Open victor Chez Reavie, big-hitting Luke List, and Mike Lorenzo-Vera, a 34-year-old French golfer who [quickly checks bio] likes cars.

The trio began at the par-4 10th in cool and sunny conditions at the first PGA Championship played in May since 1949, the event moving from August this year in a revamp of the global golf schedule.

Only 16 players ended the day under par in NY, with Fleetwood in third spot on three under and world No 1 Dustin Johnson in the group six of the pace that also includes Phil Mickelson, Jason Day and Jordan Spieth - who can complete the career Grand Slam with victory this week. "It was a awful night, a awful ending, and just - we feel bad for him and his entire family".

"I wasn't feeling that good yesterday, so I chose to stay home and rest, " Woods said. "It's a fun golf course to play, that's for sure". He dropped only one shot early in his round at No. 12.
