(WAOW) - On the heels of a week when he shot the worst 4-round score of his illustrious pro career, Tiger Woods appears to be back on track at the P-G-A Championship.

He cards a 1-under 71 today at Whistling Straits.

 Don't let the sun-soaked conditions that dominated day one at the 92nd PGA Championship fool you. Golfers with morning tee times, such as Tiger Woods and Madison native Jerry Kelly, had to deal with a 3-hour-plus delay thanks to the heavy fog that covered Whistling Straits this morning.

"I run on adrenaline," said Jerry Kelly. "So, I was sleeping. I didn't like it, but we're used to it and we understand it."

When I asked Tiger Woods if the delay effected him at all, he replied, "I got to eat 3 breakfasts, so that's always good."

"This morning with that fog, you had to just trust your number and hopefully you got the club right," added Bubba Watson. "Hopefully you hear claps at the end of it."

"Someone asked me this morning, 'how do you keep your focus?'" said Jim Furyk. "I guess you never probably really get focused, if that makes sense. Probably until I go to the range and start going through my routine, then I click it on. But, yeah, it takes a lot out of you just to be out here and be on your feet."

Of course, it wasn't just the morning tee times that were effected. Edgerton's Steve Stricker got his time moved from 1:15pm back to 4:25pm, virtually assuring he will not finish his first round today.
