PGA Championship Leaderboard 2012: Ken Duke Early Leader, Rory McIlroy One Shot Back

About half of the field has begun their rounds at the 94th PGA Championship being held at The Ocean Club at Kiawah Island in South Carolina. Ken Duke is the early leader at 4-under par and Rory McIlroy is among a group of three golfers that are one shot back.

Defending champion Keegan Bradley is a part of a large group of golfers that two shots back at 2-under par. Tiger Woods is currently tied even par through eight holes of his first round.

Duke got off to a good start in his round with birdies at one and three before a bogey at seven temporarily dropped him back to 1-under. Duke then came back with three straight birdies at nine, 10 and 11 to take the lead and get to 4-under.
