PGA Championship leaderboard: Robert Garrigus tied for the lead, Tiger Woods 7 back

Stuart Franklin

It's been a sea of red numbers at Oak Hill on Friday and Robert Garrigus has taken advantage, playing his way into a tie for the lead.

After back-to-back bogeys as he made the turn, Robert Garrigus is back in a share of the lead at 7-under thanks to a birdie at No. 11. He's one of several players vaulting up the leaderboard in the afternoon groups.

Garrigus opened the round with two birdies and was 4-under on the round through six holes. He took sole possession of the lead at 8-under after a birdie at No. 8, but dropped right back with a bogey on the next hole. Another bogey at No. 10 dropped Garrigus a stroke behind Adam Scott before he moved back into a share of the lead with his sixth birdie of the day.

Like Garrigus, Jason Dufner made a move up the leaderbaord with a strong front nine. An eagle at No. 2 got Dufner going and he followed it with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 4 and No. 5. He made the turn at 31 and is tied for third place at 6-under. Matt Kuchar carded a 33 on the front nine and is two strokes off the lead at 5-under.

After some early issues, Tiger Woods has found some recent success. He was 1-over through four holes, but consecutive birdies got him into the red for the day and even for the tournament. Woods struggled off the tee early on, but after a birdie on his first fairway at No. 5, he hit his tee shot on the par-3 sixth hole to 15 feet. He still has plenty of work to do to get back into contention, but low scores are attainable.

Here is a quick look at the leaderboard and a few other notable names.
