Ross Fisher, Emiliano Grillo and Martin Kaymer finished tied in the second place with 4-under par. Fisher had three birdies and a bogey in front nine and he putted the 17th and the 18th holes into birdies. For Kaymer and Fisher to stay in contention, they have to play better in Round 2.

Jordan Spieth struggled the whole day to make it on top of the PGA Championship leaderboard. He had a double bogey on the seventh hole before bringing back his score with birdies in the 16th and 18th holes.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson didn’t have the right moves as he putted for four bogeys, three bogeys and all pars. Mickelson was 2-under-par in the front nine but his three bogeys in the back nine marred his performance. Rory McIlroy had an awful day without even making a birdie while putting for four bogeys.
