Danny Willett hasn't been in great form since winning The Masters, but he's enjoying his opening day at the BMW PGA Championship. The Englishman reached the turn in -3 before adding another birdie at 10 to move within 3 of leaders Scott Hend and Y.E. Yang.

Alex Perry ESPN UK Editor 

Remember Y.E. Yang? (If you don't, ask Tiger Woods.) Not content with stunning the world at the 2009 PGA Championship, Asia's only male major champion is now making his mark on the European Tour's version. Co-leader at -7.

Alex Perry ESPN UK Editor 

The BMW PGA Championship loves to throw out a surprise winner. Remember Andrew Oldcorn, Ignacio Garrido, Simon Khan? (Me neither.) Australian Scott Hend sets the clubhouse target of the early starters at -7.

Remember, kids: Ben Hogan is a five-time winner of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational — a company founded 18 years after the last of those wins.

Lot of players at the BMW PGA Championship struggling on the stretch between 12 and 15. Bogey-fest out there on the back 9. Defending champion Byeong Hun An and pre-tournament favourite Shane Lowry both fell from a leading position to well off the pace.

Alex Perry ESPN UK Editor 

Bit of a who's who of former champions atop the early BMW PGA Championship leaderboard. Fan favourite Luke Donald firmly in the mix, but Australian Scott Hend is the 1st to open a 2-shot lead at 6-under.

Lovely reception for Matthew Southgate on the 1st tee at the BMW PGA Championship. The young Englishman was diagnosed with cancer last year and has battled back to earn his European Tour card thanks to an emotional 4th place finish at last week's Irish Open.

Alex Perry ESPN UK Editor 

The BMW PGA Championship is underway at Wentworth. Can Byeong Hun An defend his title? The highest-ranked player in the field -- Masters champion Danny Willett -- will have something to say about that...
