Bradley, Woods Tee Off At PGA Championship

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) ? Keegan Bradley began his defense of the PGA Championship in impressive fashion with a birdie and an eagle on his first two holes at Kiawah Island on Thursday.

On a calm course softened by rain earlier in the week, Bradley looked sharp while playing in a group with Tiger Woods and Martin Kaymer. Woods, trying for his 15th major title and first since 2008, was 1 under after three holes.

That group started on the back nine. Bradley made a 25-foot putt for eagle on the par-5 11th, while Woods had to scramble for par after a wayward drive. Woods bounced back with a birdie on No. 12.

Bradley was tied for the early lead at 3 under with Ryo Ishikawa and Greg Chalmers.

Bradley rallied to beat Jason Dufner in a playoff at this tournament last year, and he's coming off a victory last weekend at Firestone.

More thunderstorms were possible later Thursday and throughout the tournament. But skies were mostly clear when the first groups teed off, and a number of players were off to strong starts.

Chalmers had a run of four straight birdies before giving back a stroke with a bogey at No. 6. Ishikawa birdied his first three holes.
