Watson, Kaymer Tied After Two Holes of PGA Championship Playoff

Aug. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer are tied after the first two holes of a playoff at golf’s PGA Championship.

Watson birdied the first hole of the playoff and Kaymer birdied the second, leaving them both at 1-under.

The pair finished their four rounds at Whistling Straights in Kohler, Wisconsin, at 11-under par.

The champion will be the golfer with the lowest score after playing the 10th, 17th and 18th holes. In the event of a tie, the 18th will be repeatedly played until a winner emerges.

Dustin Johnson missed out on the playoff after being penalized two shots for grounding his club in a bunker on the 18th hole of regulation play.

Johnson’s score fell to 9-under par after the sanction.
