GOLF – PGA CHAMPIONSHIP…
Gary Woodland started slowly before taking the first-round lead at the PGA Championship in St. Louis.
He fired a 6-under 64 that gives him a one-stroke lead over Rickie Fowler. Woodland was 1-over before making birdie at the par-5 eighth. He also birdied the next hole and added five more on the back nine to pass Fowler, who emerged as the early leader.
Brandon Stone and Zach Johnson are two shot back and one ahead of world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who was tied atop the leaderboard before faltering late in his round.
Tiger Woods is six off the pace following an even-par 70.
Michigan assistant basketball coach Saddi Washington says coach John Beilein is doing well in his recovery from a double-bypass heart procedure earlier in the week. Washington didn’t give too many details about Beilein before practice. Beilein’s operation took place Monday at the University of Michigan’s Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center. He’s expected to make a full recovery.
Jon Leuer of the Detroit Pistons has had surgery after injuring his right knee during an offseason workout. The Pistons said Leuer’s operation was Wednesday in New York, and that he was injured earlier in the week. It wasn’t the first recent operation for the 6-foot-10 Leuer, who had left ankle surgery and was limited to eight games last season.
