American Dustin Johnson has fired a 6-under-par 66 to take a 2-shot stroke after the opening round of this year's PGA Championships.

"Today was pretty easy, I would have to say. But I was swinging well and I was hitting the shots where I was looking. So anytime you're doing that, it makes things a lot easier on you. And I really felt like I was just super patient, stayed focused all day and I was swinging well. The ball was going where I was looking. I was controlling it. In this wind it's tough to do, but I did a great job of controlling the golf ball today."

With his opening 66, Johnson has played the first rounds of the four majors this year in a combined 20-under.

The Swede David Lingmerth has hit a 5-under 31 over his first nine holes, making the turn only one shot behind leader Dustin Johnson.

World number one Rory McIlroy is having trouble hitting it straight.

He's at 1 over through eight.

Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth has opened with eight straight pars.
