The 2012 PGA Championship in South Carolina is underway, but there is no breakaway leader just yet. As a result, Colorado St. alum Martin Laird isn't that far away from the leaders on Thursday morning. Through the first nine holes -- he started on the back nine -- Laird is at even-par.
Laird made birdie on Hole No. 10 and bogeyed Hole No. 15 to move back to even-par. He has already made the turn back to Hole No. 1, which he made par on to start his second half of the day.
Ken Duke is currently atop the leaderboard at 4-under while Rory McIlroy, Cameron Tringale and Carl Pettersson are tied at 3-under. Pat Perez, who is grouped with Laird, is currently sitting at 2-under.
