TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. — Tiger Woods got off to a poor start in the first round of the P.G.A. Championship at Bellerive Country Club, but rallied in midround. Through 12 holes, Woods was 1-over, four strokes off the lead..

One of the early leaders was Justin Thomas, coming off a win in the World Golf Championships at Firestone, at 3-under through 11 holes. He was joined at 3-under by Rickie Fowler and Stewart Cink.

Woods, who has been playing as well as he has for years in recent weeks, was considered to be a contender in the event after a promising British Open last month.

He started on the 10th hole and bogeyed it, after a trip to deep rough off the tee. He found rough again on 11, leading to a double bogey, and he was three over after just two holes.

A birdie on 12 was canceled by a bogey on 16. A strong approach to 3 feet on 18 got him another birdie, and his nine-hole score of plus-2.

He moved to 1-over with a 12-foot putt on the first hole.
