SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Five golfers including Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari are clubhouse leaders at -4 after the first round of the PGA Championship was suspended by darkness at Whistling Straits.

Due to heavy fog, tee times were pushed back over three hours. Edgerton native Steve Stricker didn't get on the course until after 4 p.m. central time. Strick shot even par through his first 12 holes, and carded a birdie on the 13th. He is -1 and will finish his round tomorrow morning.

Ernie Els, Matt Kuchar (KU'-chur) and Nick Watney shared the lead when play was suspended. Els and Kuchar were 4-under through 14, while Watney was minus-4 after 11 holes.

Tiger Woods birdied three of his first four holes after finishing 18-over at the Bridgestone Invitational last weekend. Woods settled for a 1-under 71 that leaves him in a group that includes Phil Mickelson.
