Musings on Oak Hill: Players' Day 1 via Twitter

Rich Beem signs autographs during early-week preparation for the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

The weather delay gave some of the top pros in the world an extra chance to jump on social media and let fans know what they're thinking – while others took to Twitter before and after their rounds. Here's a sampling:

• • •

Rich Beem, @beemerpga: "Oak Hill not playing as tough as 2003. Graduated rough helps out longer hitters. But greens are way smoother and that's why scores are low"

Paul Lawrie, @PaulLawriegolf: "72 +2 today which was poor as overnight rain made course much easier , loads of guys making birdies out there"

Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, @gfcgolf: "Game suspended just at the right time for me as I was about to jump to the creek on 12th after 3 straight bogeys. #timetothink"

Kevin Streelman, @Streels54: "Very cool seeing @nickterryMRO @StenhouseJr @DanicaPatrick out at PGA today Thx for support Good luck birdie on 18!!! :)"

Mikko Ilonen, @MikkoIlonen: "After back to back bogies its the right time to have a break. Early dinner, then hope to get back out. 9holes left. #PGAChamp"

David Hearn, @HearnDavid: "Excited to be in the mix early! Lots of golf to go. Only downside - takes longer to get to lunch after pressers. #pgachamp #oakhillcc"

Bernd Wiesberger, @BWiesberger: "Lot of everything today I guess. Started well but it seems i have a tough time closing out a round lately. Three more low ones! #PGAChamp"

Marcus Fraser, @Marcusfraser: "Nice to get off to a good start at the @PGAChampionship played great after a bogey bogey start. Made some good putts for -3, 67."

Ben Crane, @bencranegolf: "14 yrs ago RT @alexkstewart: @bencranegolf"
