Talk with caddie helps defending PGA champ Thomas win

Talk with caddie helps defending PGA champ Thomas win

This will be his 19th appearance in the tournament he has won four times.

Seventeen years later, Woods is back at Bellerive for the start of the PGA Championship.

"It's playing so soft. you need to get the ball out there", Woods said.

Just don't get the idea the 29-year-old McIlroy is down on himself. He once said it couldn't be a great year without winning a major.

Rory McIlroyI like Rory to win this week so it makes sense to target him. Hossler has been tremendous in 2018, with five top 10 finishes and two top-six finishes in his last three appearances on Tour. That also was the last of his four majors.

Not that Woods tried to make things hard for his partners.

Ulsterman McIlroy would certainly appear to be suited to the wet conditions at Bellerive and compared the course to Valhalla, the venue for his second US PGA victory and last Major title to date in 2014. Here we pick five players to watch out for over the next four days. "I came with my dad to see the stars and so it's fun to be bringing my son to something like this", explains Kevin White.

The reigning PGA Championship victor averages 313.8 yards off the tee, putting him ninth on the PGA Tour in driving distance and within spitting distance of big hitters such as Dustin Johnson. "If asked, that's what I would remind players".

Jansky's Very Large Array ( VLA ) is a radio telescope that is part of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory network. It's thought that SIMP J01365663+0933473 is only 200 million years-old and is just 20 light-years away from Earth.

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.

Dan Reardon has covered golf for radio station KMOX in St. Louis for 33 years. And while Spieth acknowledged Tuesday that the change will help with the overall calendar flow, he also pointed out another benefit: the weather. But what you have to keep reminding yourself as a player is you really have a job to do this week. Thomas is the PGA champion and No. 2 player in the world. But beyond that, courses such as Shoal Creek in Alabama and layouts in Texas, Florida and California that were written off because of oppressive summer heat could be in the mix.

Aagaard is especially excited for CBS Sports' Hawkeye Green Technology, which will allow viewers to experience the undulation of the green and the line of the putts throughout the PGA Championship. He's the captain for the European team for next month's Ryder Cup, so chances are he'll be following some of his prospective players the rest of the week.

Justin Thomas clinched the fourth US spot by winning the Bridgestone last week, and Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson hold the other four automatic slots. (Furyk made the adjustment from every player getting double major points to just the victor, hoping to protect the statistical integrity of players who won other events during the season).

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and 29 other major champions began preparing for the spotlight of super group pairings as practice rounds opened Monday for the 100th PGA Championship.

"I think both teams are going to be very good when it comes down to, if you compare them, we're going to have a really good team, they're going to have a good team, and it's going to be a great match", he said.

Woods has not played the PGA since 2015 at Whistling Straits, where he missed the cut.

Now, those who tried to get on the course at Bellerive are simply soaked. He says pairings would be easier now, a new generation anxious to play alongside their boyhood idol, a more familiar face after prior vice-captain roles while injured.
