Closing birdie puts Denmark's Olesen atop PGA Championship

Uspgachampionship

Hend, who lives in the United States, will be contending for the year's final Major championship against the elite field at Quail Hollow Club.

The course will again play to his strengths of long, high shots and while he has squandered a couple of chances to win on the European Tour he is also a proven multiple victor.

Jason Day has clawed his way back up the leaderboard midway through the opening round of the US PGA Championship in North Carolina.

Fellow Kiwi Danny Lee is a PGA TOUR regular and will be comfortable in the environment but has been treading water for much of the 2017 season with just four top-10's. "We're just not far enough along in our process to be able to say definitively where we are".

"I'm one of 20 club professionals who made it to the PGA Championship".

The biggest change was the FedEx Cup in 2007, which concluded with four playoff events just two weeks after the PGA Championship, offering a $10 million bonus to the victor.

The 47-year-old Els shot 4 over on the front nine and was tied for 70th — or in second-to-last place — among the early golfers on the course as he made the turn.

Bevacqua said the PGA of America analyzed the move to May for some eight months. "It's changing because of contemplated alterations to the FedEx Cup". "But we're all competitors; we've all played PGA Tour events in the past", said Deane.

Denmark's Olesen, who won the golf World Cup in Melbourne a year ago, shot an impressive 67 to hold a one-shot lead over reigning US Open champion Brooks Koepka, Grayson Murray, Chris Stroud, Gary Woodland (all 68) and Bud Cauley (13 holes) at three-under.

No PGA Tour schedule has been announced beyond 2018, so there is no official word how any of the other tournaments will be affected.

The 2019 PGA Championship is schedule for Bethpage Black on New York's Long Island, with 2022 headed for Trump National in New Jersey and 2023 at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York.
