TULSA, Okla. — Fargo pro Tom Hoge is tied for second place after Thursday's first round of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club.

Hoge shot a 4-under 66 and is tied for second with Will Zalatoris. Rory McIlroy leads at 5-under 65. Hoge had five birdies with one bogey in his round. He shot 33 on the front nine and 33 on the back nine to rank among the tournament's early leaders.

Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar and Abraham Ancer are tied for fourth at 3-under 67 and nine players are tied for seventh at 2-under 68.


A tough course and hot, windy conditions kept scoring down and players bunched. Thirty-six players head into Friday's second round within five shots of the lead. >>> Full story here.

On Sunday, that meant scoreless performances from Cody Stashak, who followed Paddack and threw 2⅔ innings, Caleb Thielbar, who struck out all three batters he faced, Joe Smith, Tyler Duffey and Emilio Pagán, who locked down the save after allowing a pair of baserunners in the ninth.
