Despite all of the big names entered in the field for the 2014 PGA Championship, it's three relatively unheralded contenders who find themselves atop the leaderboard after Day 1. 

Lee Westwood, Kevin Chappell and Ryan Palmer are the trio of PGA regulars tied for first place at six under after the first round of play in the year's final major. 

Alas, there will be no chance for a magical repeat champion this year. Day 1 bid farewell to last year's champion, Jason Dufner, who had to withdraw from the tournament due to injury, per GolfChannel.com's Jason Sobel:

ESPN's Ian O'Connor reported that his withdrawal was due to lingering neck issues.

"I won't play golf again until I'm healthy," said Dufner, via O'Connor. "That could be at The Barclays. That could be next year. That could be 2016. I refuse to be out here and not be healthy. You're not giving yourself a chance to be competitive."

Here are the tee times for Day 2, along with the TV coverage and live stream information so you know exactly when to tune in to watch your favorite golf pros take to the course and attempt to make the cut for the weekend at Valhalla.

Day 2 Preview

David J. Phillip/Associated Press

Westwood's Thursday performance was particularly surprising, especially when one looks at his recent record. The 41-year-old Englishman recently missed three straight cuts on the PGA Tour, including the 2014 U.S. Open and The Open Championship.

All eyes will be on Westwood heading into Day 2 to see if Thursday's stellar round was a fluke or a sign of greater things to come. 

One of the biggest storylines heading into the tournament was whether or not Tiger Woods' back would hold up to the rigors of another round of professional golf after he tweaked it at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. 

Woods shot a very poor three-over on the day, nowhere near the level he needs to be playing at to compete in this star-studded field. ESPN Stats & Info pointed out that he hasn't been the same since returning from the back injury:

It is quite possible that Woods could miss the cut if he plays as poorly as he did on Thursday.

McIlroy, who's been on top of the golfing world lately, in quite the literal sense of the phrase, had an interesting round on Day 1. He shot three under on the front nine and then imploded on holes No. 10 and 11, shooting a double bogey and bogey, respectively.

He immediately turned around the uncharacteristic sloppy play by notching an astounding four birdies in a row and finishing out smoothly to end up just one stroke behind the trio of leaders.

McIlroy continues to strike the ball well, averaging 327.5 yards on driving distance after Day 1, per PGATour.com. CBS Sports' Kyle Porter noted McIlroy's insane ability to locate his drives on the fairway:

His combination of strength and accuracy should keep him in the running for the trophy as this tournament moves forward.

Jim Furyk continued his recent displays of consistent, error-averse golf. The 44-year-old American finished tied for fourth after Day 1 at five under, courtesy of five birdies—including three in a row at one point—and no bogeys.

Furyk's stellar play should be of little surprise to those paying attention to golf in between majors. In his last five tournaments, Furyk has finished in the top 10 three times and no worse than tied for 15th.

McIlroy's sensational turnaround on the back nine might have some observers bullish on his chances of winning a second major in 2014. Indeed, a victory at Valhalla would place him on the fast track to stardom as his dominance attracts the interest of casual golf fans.

McIlroy's major record may have some looking forward to a run at Jack Nicklaus' record, but the Northern Irishman made it clear he doesn't think about the chase all that much, per Sobel:

It's this calm, measured outlook that makes him such a formidable golfer. Westwood, Chappell and Palmer should watch out, as this tournament has a very interesting stable of challengers lying just a few strokes back (or less) heading into Day 2.
