With Friday's scoring average nearly five strokes over par (74.845), the "Monster" lived up to it's billing. However, several players were able to go low and make a strong move up the leaderboard, including DryJoys enthusiasts J.B. Holmes (DryJoys Tech), Ben Curtis (DryJoys Traditional - MyJoys) and Jeev Milkha Singh (DryJoys Tech). J.B. holds the 36-hole lead going into the weekend with Curtis, who tied for the low round of the championship with a 3-under 67, just one shot behind. Singh continues to battle a brutal foot injury but you would never know watching his solid play. He's in a large group of players three shots behind Holmes at +2.

DryJoys enthusiast J.B. Holmes posted a 2-under 68 on Friday to take the clubhouse lead late in the afternoon.

Ben Curtis surged into contention on Friday, firing a tournament-best 3-under 67. HE moved 38 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for fifth at last check.

It was a wild day one at the 2008 PGA Championship. Similar to the other majors, you need to take advantage of the course conditions when they're more receptive to scoring like the morning was yesterday at Oakland Hills. Two players who seized the opportunity to go off in the morning were FootJoy players Robert Karlsson and Jeev Milkha Singh who tied for the lead at 2-under. Similar to The Open Championship a few weeks ago, conditions became more difficult in the afternoon as the wind kicked up, the course firmed up and weather delays forced play to continue on Friday. What will day two bring? I guess we'll have to tune in to find out!
