Defending champion Brooks Koepka made an inspired start at the PGA Championship with a dominant display that for several hours seemed destined to give him a big lead after the first round on Thursday.

Koepka made the gargantuan, rain-softened Bethpage Black layout look easy with a seven-under-par 63 that matched the second lowest round in any major championship.

But an inspired Danny Lee almost caught Koepka in the afternoon, the South Korean-born, American-based citizen of New Zealand finishing in style with birdies at the final two holes for a 64.

The two frontrunners had a handy cushion over their nearest pursuer, Englishman Tommy Fleetwood on 67.

Tiger Woods, in his first competitive round since winning the Masters a month ago, putted poorly for a 72 in the company of Koepka.

Bethpage's fairways are lined with lush, rain-fuelled rough, and Koepka said keeping his ball in the short grass had been key to his score.

"If you hit fairways you're going to be able to hit greens and get the ball close to the hole," he said.

"So you can definitely shoot a number. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw another good score in the afternoon."

Here are the tee times for Friday at Bethpage:
