Scott and Rose endured the wet morning better than most

Playing in torrential showers for most of the morning at Oak Hill, Adam Scott and Justin Rose battled difficult and soggy conditions and managed to stay afloat on Friday morning — or near the top of the leaderboard at the PGA Championship despite getting the less favorable side of the draw.

Scott, who opened with a 65 for a share of the first-round lead, posted a respectable two-under 68, while Justin Rose shot 29 on the front nine (he teed off no. 10, so after it stopped raining) to post a four-under 66.

Scores in the afternoon are expected to be significantly lower, with mild and  soft conditions after it dumped buckets in the morning.

Tiger Woods is one-under through seven holes at the moment.
