The Latest: Rory, Jordan, Phil on course at PGA

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- The Latest from the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits (all times local):

1:47 p.m.
 
Phil Mickelson has opened with a birdie.
  
Rory McIlroy has opened with a bogey.
  
Jordan Spieth has opened with a par. And Adam Scott has opened with two straight birdies.
  
They're all trying to catch Dustin Johnson, who shot 6-under 66. They're part of the afternoon group teeing off at the PGA Championship.
   --------
  
1:24 p.m.
  
You could say that both Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods are picking up where they left off.
  
Johnson knows his way around Whistling Straits. He shot a 6-under 66 at the PGA Championship today, writing a new chapter at the Wisconsin course that's the sight of one of his worst moments. He was leading going into the 72nd hole here in 2010, but grounded his club in a trash-strewn bunker and was penalized two shots. That kept him out of a playoff.
  
His 6 under in the first round Thursday included five birdies, an eagle, one bogey and no drama.
  
It gave him the clubhouse lead with the morning rounds wrapping up. It also put him nine shots ahead of Woods, who had a 75 and is in danger of missing three straight cuts in the majors for the first time in his career.
  
The world's top two players, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, just teed off.
