Long hitters poised to plunder soggy Bellerive at PGA Championship

  • Justin Thomas dedicated his win to former PGA Tour player Jarrod Lyle who is battling cancer for the third time

Finau has finished in the top 10 at all the majors this year, even at the Masters, where he rolled his ankle during the Par 3 Tournament. Putting is his biggest weakness, however, and Ryder Cups always come down to the players who can shake in the most putts.

World number three Justin Rose sees limited preparation due to back issues as a possible blessing in disguise ahead of Thursday's start of the 100th PGA Championship. You choose three starters from Group A, three from Group B, four from Group C and two from Group D. In one of the biggest twists from other games, you also choose one alternate from each group. The group tees off at 8:17 a.m. on Thursday. If all twelve of your golfers finish -5, your score would be -60. "If you drive it well, you can attack it a little bit, especially with the soft greens". If you don't, you're still not in trouble because the chipping areas are pure and will allow players to spin the ball even from short distances. He's got a lot of top-10s. McIlroy tied for sixth in the same event last week, his first tournament after tying for second at the British Open three weeks ago.

The 2016 Masters is the flipside for Spieth - he let slip a five-shot lead on the back nine during a collapse that echoed far beyond the reach of Augusta National. That being said, there is still some risk he withdraws in the middle of the tournament or isn't himself because of the injury.

"But I feel like I'm close and closing in". Woods ImpactThere are 156 golfers teeing it up at the year's final major and it is likely every one of them has, at one time or another, been asked about Woods' impact on their careers. Time is running out, as it relates to preparing for the PGA Championship, and for a season that is being measured differently.

"It's great to win one and be classed as a major champion, but I want to do it multiple times in my career".

"I'll try as hard as I can", Woods said. I like Thomas Pieters, Brandt Snedeker, Keegan Bradley, Byeong-Hun An, Adam Scott, Thorbjorn Olesen and Ryan Moore, but narrowing it down to four starters and an alternate is tough.

The USGA is often criticized for its U.S. Open setups, whether that's because of long, thick rough or penal green speeds that are created to produce a specific winning score. Tim Finchem, then PGA Tour commissioner, made the decision to cancel the event.

"There's going to be certain days that I'm just not going to have the speed and the flexibility and the movement that I once did", Woods said.

"I hit some balls today and felt absolutely fine and really comfortable with my swing and the way it's moving", he said. "All I can do is embrace the challenge".

"But he has added so much value off the golf course for us the last two that, if we could have him for both this time, it would be great". That the contest is free and you can win a $250 Amazon gift card for first place and a $100 Amazon gift card for second place is just icing on the cake. "But if you're talking about him, you need him out of the room for picks or for making pairings".
