Scheffler, the World No. 2, shot one of the lowest rounds on Thursday with a 3-under par 67 at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
The 26-year-old is looking for his second major championship title after he won The Masters in 2022.
That win marked his fourth career victory on the PGA Tour in the span of just a few months. So far in the 2023 season he's already claimed two more PGA Tour wins.
He's making just his fourth ever start at a PGA Championship, but has finished inside the top 10 twice.
Prior to this week in Upstate New York, Scheffler was featured in a mic'd up clip on the range in a TaylorMade video with Woods that went viral.
In the video, Scheffler is perplexed by Woods' lack of divots.
"When I'm swinging well, I don't take divots," Woods told him.
"Have you always been like that or you just practice it?" Scheffler asked.

On Thursday, following his round at the PGA Championship, Scheffler was asked about the viral clip:
Justin Thomas, this week's defending champion, has become publicly quite close to Woods over recent years.
Thomas shot a 2-over par 72 Thursday. Woods, however, is not in the field this week.
The 47-year-old recently underwent a procedure on his ankle and is out for the foreseeable future.
