PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) -- Golf's final major championship of the year is under way at soggy Oak Hill.
After heavy rain overnight, the sun was out Thursday morning when club pro Rob Labritz hit the first tee shot at the venerable course near Rochester. He is playing with Australia's John Senden and Ireland's Shane Lowry.
A few minutes later, Charley Hoffman teed off at No. 10 to get things going for the players starting on the back side.
Tiger Woods has a morning tee time. He'll be trying to break the longest major drought of his career, which dates to his victory at the 2008 U.S. Open. He is 0-for-17 since then.
British Open champion Phil Mickelson, U.S. Open winner Justin Rose and Masters winner Adam Scott are playing together in the afternoon.
