Stroud is one off lead at PGA Championship

Among the things service members learned were full swing etiquette and short game

Koepka politely introduced himself as "Brooks" to the standard bearer and scorer, as if they did not recognise the U.S. Open champion.

However, birdies on the next two holes - courtesy of what Spieth described as a "phenomenal" hybrid into the par-five seventh and a "fantastic" wedge to the eighth - repaired most of the damage.

The 21-year-old Olesen set the pace with a four-under 67 while Spieth, the tour's best putter for much of short his career until this year, said he could not have putted any worse en route to a one-over 72 in calm morning conditions.

"If they get about a foot faster, they are kind of unplayable with the pin placements", Koepka said. Some were good putts and some weren't. He was laughing and joking when I was up there, kept telling me, 'You got a good break.' I was like, well, still feel like crap.

Among afternoon starters, fourth-ranked Rory McIlroy was level par after four holes and South Korean An Byeong-Hun was three-under through five after opening on the back nine with 3 consecutive birdies.

"That was on the second hole, just before my second shot on the second and that really annoyed me". "It's a little disappointing but I brought it back with a couple birdies to at least having a chance going forward".

The world number one mixed three birdies with two bogeys on Thursday to card a one-under 70 at the year's final major.

"The greens are very quick and firm and if you're not in the right position it's very hard just to make par", he said.

"I felt awful about it", Koepka said, although he had not shouted the traditional warning of "fore" following his drive.

That could explain why you'll see more physically fit people at this week's (August 10-13) PGA Championship behind the ropes than on the fairways.
