When Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament on April 14, President Trump declared he was going to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom and ordered his aides to schedule the event as soon as possible. There are still four days for those numbers to change, but it's unlikely they change enough to alter the overall trend.
Rory McIlroy said he thought this PGA Championship would play like a normal tour event, and that a score in the region of 8 to 12 under par would win.
"I'm not the person that I was 20 years ago physically and mentally, I have to set new goals and have new ambitions and things like that", said Westwood, who holds the unwanted record of most top-three finishes in a major (nine) without winning one.
"Weather was just like this, actually", Glover said. "We think we made a great decision, but we'd rather be lucky than good, in terms of what he did in the Masters". Two of them, the seventh and 12th, are 524 and 515 yards respectively.
During his barren run, Woods had to overcome a highly-public divorce following revelations of his marital infidelities, a DUI arrest he blamed on an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine and multiple career-threatening surgeries.
"We hope it will have the same effect that he had his first go-around on participation as well". He hit a 3-hybrid into the par-4 16th, and another 3-hybrid into the par-3 17th.

I know the rest of the top six will all sign players in the summer, but looking at them now I don't think they will be anywhere near City or Liverpool .

Doris Day has died aged 97
The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed the star had died at her Carmel Valley, California, home surrounded by close friends. With movies trending toward more explicit sex, she turned to television to recoup her finances. "May she rest peacefully".
"Obviously, Tiger has impact - sort of the moon landing", Waugh said at the PGA's media day. "Long and hard, that's what I remember". "As you get people excited to play, and from a fan's perspective, there was this big gap". So it's still fair. He will be the first golfer to use a cart at a major tournament since Casey Martin used one at the 2012 U.S. Open.
And the next two majors are on courses where Woods has won major titles - Bethpage, where he took the 2002 US Open, and Pebble Beach, site of his 2000 US Open triumph. "But any time you're lumped in with him, it's a pretty good honor".
The New Zealand TAB have both Kiwis at long odds to win the title, with Fox at $251 and Lee at $326. His quest for a 16th major is an irresistible narrative even though he skipped Quail Hollow a fortnight ago to continue his recovery from the toll taken by his Augusta win. "That was awesome. It's a tall order. I haven't won, I haven't accomplished any of my goals, but I've come through it". "It seems like you can share it (success) with more people and more people can relate to it". Consider it a firm reminder from Mother Nature that moving the tournament to May isn't without risk.
It is probably asking too much for him to make it successive major victories.
"But I've got plenty of time to prepare and get ready for Thursday". It's nearly like how I imagine some guys feel driving down Magnolia Lane at Augusta that have had success there. "Maybe, maybe not. But right now, it's a little soon, and I'm just enjoying 15". "Let's see what we can do again".
The official tournament forecast calls for the rain to subside early Tuesday morning, with clouds and warmer conditions expected on Wednesday.
