PGA Championship week opens in soggy conditions

Maybe James Adducci's wager on Tiger winning the Masters was his first sports bet

It looks brilliant now.

Shifting the PGA Championship to May in time to be the first major after Tiger Woods snapped an 11-year major win drought was brilliant timing. Anticipation now is based on results, not just wishful thinking. Only time will tell if it all pays off for Adducci but we'll find out soon enough with the PGA Championship coming up right around the corner. For the final round of the Masters, which was moved up several hours due to impending thunderstorms, CBS drew 18 million viewers at its peak, and the broadcast was the most-watched for morning golf in 32 years.

'I've never been to Bethpage before, ' said Fleetwood, who was among the players on a flight to NY, chartered by the European Tour, which left two hours after the final putt was holed at Hillside.

"For me the temperature change and how he will cope with getting out of the rough is going to be his major -battle", Faldo said.

When they arrived to the ball, Woods had 256 yards into the center of the green and laughed sarcastically at the thought. On May 6, President Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Woods in a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House.

Real Madrid coach Zidane holds face-to-face talks with Courtois
Zinedine Zidane said it is "very clear" that Gareth Bale was dropped from Real Madrid's squad for their loss to Real Sociedad . But after Lopetegui and then Santiago Solari were sacked, Zidane's return has put Bale's future at the club in serious doubt.


James Adducci and Tiger Woods don't really know each other. If he hits it in the rough at Bethpage Black he will not be able to scramble like he did last month. "The Masters was the first Major I'd played in the last four or four where I'd actually played the whole course before Thursday". So with that in mind, I scribbled down seven reasons Woods could win the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black. He has finished first or second in three of the last four majors.

Mickelson made a strong bid to overcome a five-shot deficit to Woods, and he was tied for the lead with five holes to play in 2009.

Tiger will face the same challenges as his predecessors when it comes to confronting his advancing years - an aging body, a talented new crop awaiting their turn, and the growing sense that time will prove his greatest enemy. It's not an easy feat, especially if you're playing in windy, rainy, or even scorching-hot conditions.

My own gut feeling is that he would do well to finish top-six at the PGA, and there is a nagging doubt that his success at Augusta may have come at a cost physically.

But this is the PGA Championship, where the organizers like to see birdies. Woods did it twice. It was Woods' second Open victory and eighth major win overall. But if the Masters reminded us of anything, it is that Woods does not follow traditional golfing tales. Augusta is the flawless place for him to win more majors but I'm not so sure with regard to the other venues. That's another sticking point for me with him, too. "Hopefully we'll make that 2-1 very shortly".

The PGA Championship kicked off this morning with practice rounds.

Jordan Spieth will start his quest to complete the career grand slam at 1.16pm (1716 GMT) with world number one Dustin Johnson and Spaniard Jon Rahm. Nobody loves a good narrative more than the masses who will gather around the people's country club on Long Island this week, and Woods' Masters victory will have whet the collect appetite of these New Yorkers. He hasn't won in his last 43 events worldwide.

LaCava said he's not concerned about Woods' layoff from tournament golf entering this week.

These three guys are - obviously - just a handful of the players we'll see tee it up at next week's PGA Championship.
