SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- PGA professional Brian Gaffney, head pro at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, posted a 1-under-par 71 in his opening round of the PGA Championship on Thursday, good for 24th on the leader board and lowest among club pros.

Gaffney, originally from Darien, is playing in his fourth PGA Championship.

Held along the shores of Lake Michigan at Whistling Straights in Kohler, Wis., the PGA Championship is the last of the four majors to be held each year. The event is unique in that it reserves 20 spots for club pros to compete alongside big names on tour. No PGA professional has ever won the tournament in its 99-year history.

Gaffney is in good position to make the cut, as the Top 70 players will advance to the weekend rounds. Along with Gaffney, assistant pro Grant Sturgeon of Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck is also in the field after having shot 5-over on Thursday.
