Long hitters poised to plunder soggy Bellerive at PGA Championship

  • Justin Thomas Thomas carded a one-under-par 69 in the final round at Firestone to finish four shots clear

"It's certainly close", said McIlroy, who tees it up with Tiger Woods and defending champion Justin Thomas in the first two rounds on what will be a long and soft course. So trying to interpret whether he's done enough or not done enough is a position that I don't have to put myself in now'. My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that.

Yet rarely do the same critiques accompany the PGA, and Haigh said that's because "my hope and I think the plan is that the players are the story".

"It's going to be hot, it's going to be wet, and fortunately, I'm one of the guys who hit the ball high and get the ball up in the air, and you just need to get the ball out there". He's the only player with top-10s in the first three majors of the year, but it's still unclear whether his brawny game is an ideal fit for a plodder's paradise like Le Golf National.

Fleetwood played with eventual champion Justin Thomas in his opening two rounds at Quail Hollow a year ago and says he learned "a few things" from watching the American on the way to his first major title.

"But it's a process". I think my best chance since Valhalla was at Carnoustie, but in golf you just have to be an eternal optimist.

After a number of years battling injury, the 14-time major victor is back on the course and is now 20th on the Team USA Ryder Cup rankings.

On Saturday, the Israeli army said an aircraft had fired at "a terrorist squad" launching "arson balloons" at Israel. Hamas and other resistance groups have linked their fate to Israel freeing Palestinian security detainees.

Tall, muscular Brooks Koepka won his second straight US Open at Shinnecock Hills in June, while McIlroy broke an 18-month winless drought in March. "He was in bed". "To get to this point is a phenomenal achievement already". I'm looking for 12 guys that will really accept the challenge ahead of us because it's been 25 years since we won in Europe'.

Tommy Fleetwood says he is confident of "getting over the line" and winning a major title as he prepares for this week's US PGA Championship.

And he was coming off a win in the NEC Invitational two weeks earlier as he arrived at Bellerive Country Club for the WGC-American Express Championship.

Bellerive has also hosted the inaugural Mid-Amateur Championship in 1981, the US Senior Open in 2004, the 2008 BMW Championship, the 2013 Senior PGA Championship and now the 100th PGA Championship.

Zach JohnsonJohnson is more accustomed to playing midwestern golf than nearly anyone on Tour and has a proven track record at courses that set up like Bellerive. As you know, we notified the players we wanted to build up slowly to getting them to where we need, knowing that Tuesday or certainly Monday was nearly 100 degrees temperature with high humidity followed by yesterday, an inch and a half of rain.

Quoteworthy: "I've had a really good year so far".

With time, he rose in power and position within the party and was the party's treasurer by 1961. The 94-year-old was being treated for fever and urinary tract infection reported The Hindu .

"I needed that day off".

"I'm trying to get back to the way I was the last time I won a major in 2014 at Valhalla". I'm 42 now and I've had four back surgeries. "So things are going to be different from day-to-day, and it's just about managing it". You can pretty much eliminate those players from consideration, along with past champions like John Daly and Y.E. Yang.

At Wisconsin's Whistling Straits course, Day became the first major victor to finish with a 72-hole total of 20-under-par.

The most recent was at the British Open, when he had the lead in the final round for two holes in the final round until fading to a tie for sixth.

"To go from missing the cut in the US Open to contending and at one point leading the Open on the back nine, it felt good".

Typically, temperatures dip and humidity rises overnight, giving fire crews a window to slow down the spread of the wildfires. Its intensity was so great at one point, that it generated a tornado-like fire storm - as well as its own weather system.

On Wednesday, the PGA's chief championship officer Kerry Haigh acknowledged the work that had gone into the greens.
