  1. Until tomorrow...

    leaderboard

    And that is it from us on day one of the US PGA Championship.

    Brooks Koepka has set an astonishing pace that only New Zealander Danny Lee could get close to, but who would bet against the big-hitting American retaining his title this weekend?

    Still need your golfing fix? Check out Alistair Magowan's report here.

    We'll be back again tomorrow to see if the world's best can tame the formidable Bethpage Black and make any ground on the leader.

    Until then...

  2. Bogey finish for Kim

    S Kim -1 (F)

    Si Woo Kim finds the front greenside bunker on his last hole of the day. What can he do from here? The South Korean clips out on to the green but leaves himself a meaty 25-footer to salvage par...

    He can't drown it. Kim finishes with a bogey that drops him back into a group of nine players tied at one under par after the first round.

    That's six shots off the lead set by Brooks Koepka earlier.

  3. Post update

    S Kim -2 (17*)

    Si Woo Kim is two under with one to play - he'd made five birdies in seven holes before bogeying the seventh, his 16th, but recovered with a par.

  4. I'm still in this tournament - DJ

    D Johnson -1 (F)

    World number one Dustin Johnson, speaking to Sky Sports: "I felt like it was a really solid performance - drove well, hit some really good iron shots, I rolled the putter pretty well just couldn't get it in the hole.

    "This golf course is very difficult, the rough is very penal, the wind was tricky. This course is just hard.

    "Anything under par is a good score. First round, one under, I am very happy with it - I'm still completely in this golf tournament."

  5. Post update

    Phil Mickelson stops off to give his ball to a little boy who looks very happy with his winnings.

  6. Birdie for McIlroy

    R McIlroy +2, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (F)

    Jason Day is just inches left of the hole so will finish the day with a par. He's tied for 10th on -1.

    And Rory McIlroy finally gets his birdie! That was a long time coming. He finishes the day on +2.

    Up steps Phil Mickelson with a 6ft putt for par. And he makes it! A happy ending to the day for these three.

  7. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (17)

    Phil Mickelson's bunker shot skids past the hole but he could still make par here.

    Rory McIlroy's second shot has landed less than 6ft short of the hole so he's got a great chance of a birdie.

  8. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (17)

    Rory McIlroy's second shot has gone much better, he's got a chance to make his first birdie of the day on the 18th.

    Phil Mickelson seems to be having trouble with his elbow after coming out of that rough.

  9. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (17)

    And Phil Mickelson has managed to avoid those bunkers! He's in the rough, but does go straight into a bunker left of the green with his second shot...

  10. 'Brooks and Danny out of this world'

    J Spieth -1 (F)

    Jordan Spieth, speaking to Sky Sports: "I think anything under par is great. What Brooks (Koepka) and Danny (Lee) did is out of this world. I am pleased, especially with the finish.

    "I played some solid golf. It's nice to finish the back nine like that after 10 and 12.

    "I made a lot of four-to-six foot putts today which kept the confidence going to knock those birdie ones in.

    "It's always nice to birdie the last, especially being in the fairway bunker, I would certainly have signed for four.

    "The grand slam talk would do more for me if I was coming in in good form, I am coming in trying to shoot under-par rounds and trying to drive better."

  11. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (17)

    Onto the last hole for this trio. It's not the best start for Phil Mickelson. He's gone left of the fairway and if he's managed to avoid all the bunkers round there it's a miracle.

  12. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (17)

    It's a great effort from Phil Mickelson as he arches the ball up and over on the green towards the hole, but it curls about 10ft short. His second putt is so impressive though, curving round and just dropping in.

    Rory McIlroy's poor putting form continues as he misses a downhill birdie attempt and settles for par.

    Jason Day has a 7ft birdie putt, but it stays right of the hole so that's a par for him too.

  13. Post update

    S Kang -2 (F)

    Sung Kang cards a solid two-under-par 68.

    He's on great form following his first PGA Tour victory at the AT&T Byron Nelson in Dallas last week.

  14. Post update

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (16)

    Looks like it's going to be a strong finish for Jason Day. He places his tee shot perfectly for a birdie chance on the 17th.

    Phil Mickelson's is a two-putt at least, he's gone way left of the hole.

    Rory McIlroy flirts with the rough to the right of the green but the ball bounces back left.

  15. Birdie for Kim

    S Kim -3 (15*)

    Si Woo Kim is making a late charge... he moves to three under par. And with three to play he's in with a shout.

  16. Birdie for Day

    R McIlroy +3, P Mickelson -1, J Day -1 (16)

    Lovely putt from Jason Day! He's about 20ft out but it's straight into the middle of the hole and he's under par for the first time today.

    Rory McIlroy is still seeking his first birdie of the day and comes so close yet again. This is painful stuff for McIlroy, I'd be close to tears by now.

    Phil Mickelson misses his birdie chance too and that's another par.

  17. Spieth finishes with a birdie

    J Spieth -1, J Rahm E, D Johnson -1 (F)

    Jordan Spieth finishes with aplomb. Tasty bunker shot to set up the birdie chance and down it goes... he cards a 69, and will start tomorrow at one under.

    Dustin Johnson leaves his effort agonisingly left, bends his knees in frustration and also finishes on one under.

    Jon Rahm to wrap this marquee trio up, 12-footer for birdie. Kisses the cup and stays up! Unlucky. He heads in at level par.

  18. Post update

    J Spieth E, J Rahm E, D Johnson -1 (17)

    DJ, shooting up towards the grandstand, little bit of back spin to get the fans on their feet as he wriggles it back to within eight feet of the flag.

    Jon Rahm has nailed the fairway and cracks his own approach up to the good stuff, sitting pin high.
