The Latest: Early groups post low scores at PGA Championship

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship, golf’s final major of the year (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Get ready for some fun at the par-4 11th in the final round of the PGA Championship.

Kerry Haigh of the PGA moved the tees to the forward box on Sunday, which means it plays 298 yards and offers an enticing risk-reward chance. There is a hazard to the right and a pond guards the green, while a steep embankment packed with fans skirts the green to the left.

The early split of layups and guys going for the green off the tee was about 50-50.

Marc Leishman went for the green and plunked a fan. Tommy Fleetwood also sent fans scattering when he drove it left. So did Rory McIlroy in the next group.

“It’s very accessible for every player in the field if they want to go for it,” Haigh said. “It will obviously depend on if you’re going after the leader or you’re leading.”
