Baltusrol Golf Club flexed its muscles during the first round of the PGA Championship, and it likely won’t be any easier Friday.
Jimmy Walker leads the 98th PGA Championship after 18 holes after shooting a 5-under-par 65, putting him one stroke clear of Emiliano Grillo, Ross Fisher and two-time major winner Martin Kaymer. Twenty golfers, including Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Henrik Stenson, finished their rounds in red figures Thursday.
But many other big names will have to battle simply to make the cut Friday in what is supposed to be rainy conditions.
The action will continue Friday at 7 a.m. ET. Live TV coverage on TNT and a live stream on PGA.com will start at 1 p.m., but video of the feature groups will start at 8:30 a.m. on PGA.com.
