Adam carded five straight birdies early in his round, and said that was probably some of the best golf he has ever played; " Probably the best run I've ever had, I just hit really nice shots and didn't leave myself too much work. You have to take advantage of that if you're feeling that. It was a dream start after kind of a nervous first couple of holes .Just got on a bit of a roll and hit a few shots close. I didn't have too much putting to do. You've got to take advantage when it happens, because it doesn't happen too much in the majors. Nothing to complain about in 65. I felt good out there today, I felt like I could swing freely and I was hitting all the shots that I wanted to hit. When you get something going for you in a major, sometimes you have got to be not afraid to get out of your own way and let go. I did that at Lytham, and I did that here for 10 or 11 holes. I put a lot into my game the last two years with a focus on the big tournaments, everyone around me has had the same focus, as well. We come here to do business." Jim was not too happy with his bogey on the last, but was pleased with the overall result of the day; " Usually disappointed with ending the day on a bogey, but you know, 65, PGA, is not so bad." David Hearn and Lee Westwood are tied in third place at -4 under par, with six players on -3 under par, including Paul Casey who has not featured too well since his snowboarding accident, breaking a collar bone; "It's a while since my name has been up there. You don't realise how much you miss something until it's gone and sitting on the sofa watching the big events of the last year and a half I have had lots of extra motivation to get back. It added another reason for getting out there and working hard and things like Justin winning the US Open is good fuel for the fire. I got a bit lucky today with a couple of monster birdie putts from 50 feet and 33 feet on the fifth and seventh, but we're off and running. I knew I had to get something going after the turn because I had got through the tough part of the course." Lee was happy with his performance; "If you don't hit it in the fairways, then you won't score well, these guys are good. There are a lot of good players playing in the tournament. Somebody is going to hit it straight, and somebody is going to shoot a good score."
