BBC SPORT | Golf | Clarke storms to early lead: "Clarke storms to early lead
Darren Clarke made a barnstorming start to the USPGA Championship as he carded a seven-under par 65 to take the first-round lead.
The Northern Irishman opened with four straight birdies and rattled off eight in his opening 11 holes
He leads by a shot from Justin Leonard and Ernie Els, who are both a shot adrift after posting 66s.
Clarke, third in last year's USPGA, is trying to become the first European to win a major championship since 1999.
'It is a nice way to start,' he admitted after his best-ever start to a major.
'I have not been scoring as well as I would liked lately, so it was good to keep going, stay patient and have a score like that.
'But there is a long way to go yet.'
Despite bogeys on the ninth and 13th holes, Clarke drained a ninth birdie on the 14th and parred his way through the demanding closing stretch of the Whistling Straits course. "
