FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship on Thursday at Bethpage Black (all times local):

11 a.m.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka is at it again at the PGA Championship.

The 29-year-old is tied for the lead with two Englishmen after shooting a bogey-free 3-under in the opening round.

Starting on the back nine, Koepka birdied the 10th, 14th and 18th holes in search of his fourth major. He won the U.S. Open in 2017 and ’18.

Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Wallace share the lead in a round that has seen Tiger Woods struggle with two double bogeys that have left him 3-over.

Fresh off his Masters victory for his 15th career major, Woods doubled his first hole — No. 10 on the public course on Long Island — after driving into the rough. His second came at No. 17 after his tee shot on the par-3 landed in a bunker and his shot out ended far from the hole.

Francesco Molinari was at even par on the sunny but windy morning.

Wallace birdied four of the first six holes before bogeying the eighth. Fleetwood is 3-under through 12 holes.
