South Africa's James Kingston leads first day of PGA Championship

  • South Africa's James Kingston was in the lead at the rain-affected BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth, England on Thursday.

    Kingston was up by one shot over Finland's Mikko Ilonen.

    Italy's Matteo Mannassero is well placed on three under.

    World number two Rory McIlroy bogeyed five of the last six holes to sink to a two-over par 74.

    McIlroy is alongside Sergio Garcia, who took 74.

    Garcia made four birdies but was hampered by four bogeys and one double bogey.

    World number six Luke Donald carded four bogeys and one double bogey on the front nine to end the day six over with a 78.

    The opening round was delayed at the halfway stage because of thunderstorms.
