PGA Championship Leaderboard, Round 1: Steve Stricker Holds Early Lead

Through 10 holes at the PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club, Steve Stricker holds a sizable lead over the field, shooting a 6-under. The Madison, Wisconsin native holds a three-stroke lead over Adam Scott (3-under through 16 holes) and Jerry Kelly (3-under through nine holes). Stricker's on a bit of a hot streak, having won the John Deere Classic last month with a 22-under final score.

Tiger Woods hasn't fared nearly as well, shooting a five-over par through 13 holes; a double-bogey on the par-3 15th hole set him back significantly. Bubba Watson, the former Georgia Bulldog, finds himself tied with 13 other competitors for 18th place with an even par through 12 holes. Rory McIlroy, the favorite to win this event, has yet to tee off; he's slated to do so at 1:45 Eastern.

Stay tuned for 2011 PGA Championship updates, and head to Waggle Room and SB Nation's golf hub for more on the PGA Tour.
