PGA Championship 2022 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest updates as Rory McIlroy leads and Tiger Woods trails

PGA Championship

The pick of the morning groups features the world’s No 1, No 2 and No 3. However, Scottie Scheffler (+1), Jon Rahm (+3) and Collin Morikawa (+2) all struggled in the late afternoon conditions yesterday as the wind started to pick up. They will get underway in just over an hour.

Lee Westwood made a disappointing start to his PGA Championship, with a five-over-par opening round leaving him on the lower reaches of the leaderboard. To add insult to injury, it was revealed that UPS have cut ties with the former world No 1 in an apparent response to his links to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series.

Westwood is among the players to have requested releases from the PGA Tour and DP World Tour to contest the first LIV Golf Invitational next month, which has a prize fund of £20.2million and winner’s cheque of £3.2million.

Those requests have been turned down and the situation looks set to end in legal action, with LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman pledging to “defend, reimburse and represent” any players who are sanctioned for competing at Centurion Club without permission.

Westwood, who was pictured without the UPS logo on his shirt during a first round of 75 in the US PGA Championship, told Morning Read/ “I feel fortunate to have been with UPS for 14 years. Such a great company.”

In a statement, UPS president of international communications Kara Ross said: “We value the relationship we’ve had but make decisions based on what is best for our business.

“We will continue to focus on sponsorship initiatives that are important for UPS and consistent with our business priorities.

“The decision to end our partnership is a strategic business decision that allows us to focus on other initiatives.

“We maintain alternative sponsorships across other sports as well as cultural, philanthropic and sustainability-led initiatives to support our brand and meet the needs of our business.”

PGA Championship: Day Two

Welcome to The Independent’s live coverage as the second round of the PGA Championship gets underway at Southern Hills.

Rory McIlroy takes a one-shot lead into this afternoon’s play after a stunning round of 65 ensured the Northern Irishman finally got off the flying start he’s been missing at the majors for so long.

Since winning the last of his four majors at the 2014 PGA, McIlroy had been a combined 35 over par in the first round of golf’s four biggest tournaments, his most recent effort being a one-over-par 73 in April’s Masters.

But it was a completely different story on a sweltering opening day at Southern Hills as seven birdies and two bogeys saw McIlroy record his lowest round in a major since the 2011 US Open.

“It is a great start but I’m not getting ahead of myself,” he said afterwards. “I did pretty much everything you need to do out there and I’m going to have to keep doing the same the next three days.”
