Men's golf: Danny Balin of Rockville shot an opening-round 5-over-par 77 at the PGA Championship at the Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, S.C. "I didn't hit the driver very well the first nine holes today," said Balin, who is 11 shots off the pace. "But I kind of found it on the last six or seven holes, which helped me out a little bit. Hopefully tomorrow morning I'll be able to get out there, play a good round and maybe give us a chance to make the cut."
