Vijay Singh hit birdie on his first hole of Saturday to take the early lead on Day 2 at the 2012 PGA Championship at Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter are all one shot back at 4-under overall. McIlroy is 2-under through four holes, after hitting birdie on his first two holes of the day. Woods is even through three. Poulter birdied No. 3 to make his move within striking distance of Singh.
Carl Pettersson began the day tied for the lead with Woods and Singh, and was the outright leader throughout most of the first two days. A bogey on No. 3 has put him two shots off the lead in the early going, however. He is in a three-way tie for fifth with Aaron Baddeley and Jamie Donaldson.
Steve Stricker finished his day at 5-under to jump 30 spots on the leaderboard. He is currently at 2-under, three shots off the lead. Stricker is tied with David Lynn, who is also at 5-under on the day with one more hole still to play.
