Johnson happy despite missed opportunities

Dustin Johnson was satisfied despite rueing missed opportunities during his first round at the US PGA Championship on Thursday.

The American fired a one-under 69 at Bethpage Black to be six shots behind leader Brooks Koepka in New York.

"I hit it really well," the world number one told TNT after his round.

The lone bogey came on the first hole and he kept a clean card from there on out.

He said he can definitely play better, but he was happy to be at least in shouting distance of Koepka.

"So I just need to do a little bit more of that tomorrow, hit it in the fairway and just give myself more opportunities."
