Rochester, NY (Sports Network) - After breaking through for his first major championship victory earlier this year, Adam Scott has carried that momentum through the year.

Scott saved par on the final hole Thursday to post a 5-under 65 and join Jim Furyk in the lead after the first round of the 95th PGA Championship.

Furyk carded his 65 in the morning, while Scott was in the middle of the afternoon wave.

Lee Westwood, who shared third in 2009, carded a 4-under 66 and was joined in third place by David Hearn, who is playing in his first PGA Championship.

World No. 6 Matt Kuchar carded a 3-under 67 on the East Course at Oak Hill Country Club and he was part of a group tied for fifth place. He stands alongside Robert Garrigus, Paul Casey, Marcus Fraser, Scott Piercy and U.S. Open runner-up Jason Day.

Americans Steve Stricker, Jason Dufner and Bill Haas as well as 2010 PGA champ Martin Kaymer and reigning U.S. Open winner Justin Rose are among 11 players that shared 11th place at minus-2.

Four-time champion Tiger Woods stumbled to a double-bogey on the ninth, his last to card a 1-over 71.
