ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - We've been running into a lot of St. Louis Cardinals (and Blues) fans out at Bellerive Country Club during this 100th playing of the PGA Championship. Lets see how they're doing headed into round 2:

Zach Johnson - The "good friend" of Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright is two shots off the lead after a round of -4. He has a 8:23 a.m. tee time on Friday.

John Daly - If you didn't know about his love of the Cardinals already, you learned it on Thursday if you saw the 1991 PGA Championship winner play at Bellerive. He was sporting a pair of his Loud Mouth Cardinals pants. But they haven't helped his play unfortunately. He's at +3 and tied for 100th after round 1. He'll need to get inside the top-70 to stay in the field for the weekend.

Rickie Fowler - As one of the favorites to win this tournament, Fowler's -5 had him in the lead for most of the day, Thursday. His bogey on No. 16 was the only blemish, but his six birdies have him in sole possession of second place.. 

Michael Block - He hasn't been as open about it, but how can the St. Louis native not be a Redbirds fan? The hometown golfer who now lives on the West Coast started this tournament with a poor +5, but he's confident he'll bounce back.

Dustin Johnson - This is where we could be grasping for straws. But in the same way the St. Louis Blues claim Wayne Gretzky, we'll say D.J. is also a Blues fan. His fiance is The Great One's daughter, Paulina, and his future mother-in-law is a St. Louis native. So, because Johnson is so well connected to this town and the Blues (who Gretzky played half a season for in the 1995-96 season) we're willing to bet he bleeds just a little bit blue.

As far as his play, he's tied for fifth at -3 going into round 2. 

Gary Woodland - Here's the bad news.

Unfortunately, a player from "enemy territory" has the overall lead headed into play on Friday. Woodland, a former Kansas Jayhawk is atop the leaderboard at -6.
