LIV Golf player Richard Bland makes senior major debut and ties for lead at Senior PGA Championship

Richard Green tees off on the 17th hole during the first round of Senior PGA Championship golf tournament Thursday, May 23, 2024, at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich. 

 

 Richard Bland of LIV Golf is making his senior major debut and making the most of it. Bland played bogey-free at Harbor Shores for a 64. That gives him a share of the first-round lead with Richard Green on Australia in the Senior PGA Championship. Bland was eligible last year for a one-time exemption from a European tour win in the last five years. But he was playing a LIV Golf event that week. The PGA of America honored the exemption this year. Defending champion Steve Stricker and Mike Weir were in the group two shots behind.
