Fast Greens and Michael Phelps highlight Thursday at the PGA


Who is winning? Thorbjorn Olesen and Kevin Kisner both shot 4 under par 67s to be tied for the lead after day 1.

Why? Each guy made 6 birdies and limited the mistakes. Others were not so fortunate.

What people are talking about? Most golfers lamented after the first round about not expecting the greens to be so fast, especially after the early week rain. Basically golf is hard.

What should people be talking about? Charlotte is a pro sport town. That includes golf. Just has a different feel. Lots of talk around about Quail getting more majors in the future. They are hosting a President’s Cup in a few years. Could they even be a place that could get a Ryder Cup?

What’s on tap for Friday? Can someone from the Rory/Spieth/Fowler/Johnson group make a run before the weekend.

8 is wild: There are many signs around tee boxes stating no pictures. The marshalls are pretty cool about not enforcing this while players are walking by. However when people are on the tee, absolutely no pictures. Then you have this guy who got caught and the marshall grabs him by his ticket and marks the back of his ticket with a “W” for warning. Super enforcement.
