The 2011 PGA Championship leaderboard has a new player tied for the lead. Keegan Bradley hit a birdie on the first hole, moving himself into a tie for first place with third-round leaders Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele. The previously-unknown golfer has made it clear early that he will be a part of the chase for first place.
Bradley followed up his birdie on 1 with arguably an even more impressive shot on the second hole. His second shot fell deep into a bunker far away from the hole, but Bradley hit an unbelievable shot out of it to within a couple feet from the hole to save par. That keeps Bradley at -7 for the tournament.
In addition, Scott Verplank has moved into second place all by himself at -6 with a birdie on the second hole. Elsewhere, strong starts from Luke Donald and Nick Watney have put them at -3, four shots off the lead. Trevor Immelman, Gary Woodland and Sergio Garcia are -3 on the day and have moved to -2 for the tournament.
