UPDATE NO. 8 (10:08 a.m. ET): Rory McIlroy is on the board with a birdie. He pipes a drive 328 down the middle at the par-5 15th. He actually hits his second into front bunker and his blast out actually runs it Jon Rahm’s ball and ricochets some 9 feet below the hole (personally, it wasn’t unlucky: that ball probably is roughly same distance from hole if it misses Rahm’s).

He rolls in the putt and is now back to Even Par overall. Rahm, meanwhile, bogeys the 15th and that’s his third bogey in four holes. He’s now 1 over.

UPDATE NO. 7 (9:58 a.m. ET): Kisner bogeys No. 13 and he’s now back to 5 under. He’s still your leader, though. Meanwhile, Matt Kuchar has surged to 1 under after back-to-back birdies at Nos. 13 and 14. Here’s the first of the two:

UPDATE NO. 6 (9:53 a.m. ET): Rickie Fowler is now only losing to six players. Fowler birdies No. 14 to move to 2 under. He’s now T-7 and four off the lead. McIlroy makes a frustrating par at the par-4 14th after hitting a nifty pitch to 10 feet and missing the putt. He’s still 1 over.

UPDATE NO. 5 (9:46 a.m. ET): Look at Kisner! A birdie on No. 12 and he’s suddenly 6 under and has a two-shot lead.

UPDATE NO. 4 (9:33 a.m. ET): The McIlroy, Fowler, Rahm group is chugging along. McIlroy has started with four straight pars to stay 1 over, Rahm opened with a birdie but bogey No. 12. Fowler bogeyed No. 12 to fall to 1 under alongside Rahm.

UPDATE NO. 3 (9:15 a.m. ET): Kevin Kisner is not backing down. A birdie at his opening hole, the par-5 10th, has him 5 under and the solo leader by one (Olesen has an afternoon tee time).

UPDATE NO. 2 (8:32 a.m. ET): Well, you can’t say Rory’s not entertaining. Flails his second shot way right at opening par-5 10th and then plays an incredible shot, as you can see below. Makes par somehow! He’s still 1 over.

UPDATE NO. 1 (7:34 a.m. ET): Here’s your Round 2 hole locations for the PGA. The round is underway: Rory, Rickie and Rahm go off No. 10 at 8:25 a.m.
