As the afternoon tee-times at the 2012 PGA Championship are just about completely on the course, impressive golf enthusiast Graeme McDowell has already reached red numbers and is slowly climbing the leaderboard of another major championship.
McDowell currently sits at 2-under par early in his opening round and four shots behind current leader Carl Pettersson (6-under). McDowell started his round by recording a birdie on his opening hole, followed by another at no. 3 at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course.
Golf fans will note that McDowell has played in the final Sunday pairing of the last two major championships this season, first at the US Open at Olympic Club in June and again at the British Open held at Royal Lytham & St. Annes last month. Despite his consistent play in both tournaments, McDowell is still searching for his second career major after winning the 2010 US Open.
