Unknown Eric Cole (35, USA) took the lead on the first day of the PGA Championship, a major men’s golf tournament.

On the 19th (Korean time), on the first day of the tournament held at Oak Hill Country Club (par 70, 7394 yards) in Rochester, New York, USA, Cole exchanged 6 birdies and 1 bogey from the 1st round to the 14th hole and hit 5 under par.

Cole beat Bryson DeChambo (USA, 4 under par, 66 strokes) of LIV sponsored by Saudi Arabia by one stroke and took the top spot on the leaderboard토스카지노.

On this day, the start of the match was delayed by 1 hour and 50 minutes due to bad weather, and 11 groups could not finish the first round due to the sunset.

Cole, who made his late debut on the PGA Tour in the 2022-23 season, is a player close to unknown. He played in the second division last year, and his best result was a runner-up in overtime at the PGA Tour Honda Classic in February this year.

In his major stage, he made one appearance at the 2021 US Open, but missed the cut.

Cole, who started at hole 10 (par 4), cruised by reducing 2 strokes in the first half only, and gained momentum by catching three consecutive birdies in holes 2 to 4. Of course, it is an uneasy lead because the first round has not yet been completed.

DeChambeau, who participated in this tournament as a member of LIV, reduced 4 strokes with 6 birdies and 2 bogeys, and ranked second alone. DeChambeau, a long hitter, jumped into the competition for the lead with a driver with an average of 347 yards that day.

Scotty Scheffler (USA) of the PGA Tour recorded a 3 under par 67, tied for third place with Dustin Johnson (USA) of LIV.

On the other hand, last month’s Masters champion, Yon Rahm (Spain), tied for 117th with two birdies, six bogeys, and one double bogey with a 6-over-par 76.

Korean players performed sluggish side by side.

Lee Gyeong-hoon (32), Kim Si-woo (28, CJ Logistics), and Kim Joo-hyung (21, Nike Golf) tied for 63rd with a 3-over par. Lee Kyung-hoon and Kim Joo-hyung finished the first round, and Kim Si-woo left the last hole.

Lim Seong-jae (25, CJ Logistics), who achieved a come-from-behind victory at the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship last week, struggled to adjust to the time difference and sluggish (tied for 151st place) with a 10 over par 80.
