PGA Championship Leaderboard: Tiger Woods, Ross Fisher Making Early Gains

On Thursday morning, the 2011 PGA Championship is underway. Englishman Ross Fisher has built an early lead after a remarkable start. Noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods has also started strongly.

Fisher, who began play on the back nine, has birdied four of his first six holes to move to the top of the leaderboard at 6-under. The 30-year-old fisher has won four European Tour events, but has never won a PGA Tour event, and has never finished better than fifth in a major tournament.

After missing several tournaments while waiting for leg injuries to heal, Woods returned to action last weekend at the Bridgestone Invitational, finishing far off the lead with a 1-over score. He's off to a great start Thursday morning, however, as he stands at 2-under through his first four holes. Woods is looking for his first PGA Tour win since 2009, and the 15th major championship of his career.

Here is how the top of the leaderboard looks as of 10 a.m. Eastern:

1. Ross Fisher (-4)
2. Brendan Steele (-3)
T3. Noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods (-2)
T3. Bubba Watson
T3. Steve Stricker
T3. Bill Haas
T3. Luke Donald
