Isn't the PGA Championship usually at the end of the year? Why is it in May? I'm not a golfer, so I apologize if this is a stupid question.

Change in the schedule, due to moving the Tour Championship earlier, moved the Players back to Match and the The PGA Championship to May.

It fits better because last year with the PGA, a WGC, then the playoffs guys were playing like 6 out of 7 weeks, even more for the Ryder Cup teams.

So they decided to rearrange the season and get a break in the schedule later in the year

Just kidding. Does Tiger remember how to play golf? Go Tiger.

So is there really no morning coverage of Thursday’s round? We don’t get to watch Tiger for the first time after his Master’s win?

Past champ John Daly applies for and was given a waiver to use a golf cart to get around the course this week. Fun fact: this is a walking course, no cart paths. Will be interesting to see how much if any airtime he gets.

 

When asked today about the cart waiver for Daly in his press conference, Tiger said he walked a course with a broken leg. And then he smiled.

They haven’t hit a full swing shot in 45 mins because of the shuttle time to 10th tee

Yeah the setup is tough for groups going off 10 especially at 57 degrees and early start time. That part of the course is just about the longest distance from the clubhouse and first tee.

The website is sucking for me so far "Currently Off Air".  Didn't have a single issue with masters website coverage.

Tiger misses first fairway, has to pitch out, then blasts approach shot over the green. Not the best start.


Tiger misses bogie putt. Starts off with a double. No bueno.

I’m not sure he had to pitch out. Seems like he might have taken a conservative approach and it bit him

I was busy and missed that shot, so I didn’t see the lie. I’ve played the course a bunch of times and attended the US Open at Bethpage. So many times when guys end up in the rough off the tee, they just walk up, take 5 seconds to look at the lie and then grab a sand wedge and pitch it out. Let’s see if this setup is similar to how it was for the Open. Supposedly the fairways are just as narrow.

He was in the 1st cut not the primary rough. He had a shot.

That's why he's riding in a golf cart and battles dizzy spells.

That rough is brutal.  Damn.

I do love technology when it comes to sports.  Being able to stream sports on your phone or computer all day.

Lord willing, Woods misses the cut. That way I can watch and hear about more than one person playing golf all weekend.

I didn't realize PGA gives lifetime exemption to any past champions. Was wondering how he even qualified.

Koepka is cooking.  3 under through his first 9, which is the back 9 of the course (and the tougher 9).

Koepka another birdie on 1 now has the lead at 4 under.

Great score for Koepka.... not a very popular player though.

Wonder if he partners up with Patrick Reed in next Ryder Cup??

Because all he does is keep his head down and kick ass.

I've never gotten the sense that Koepka is disliked the way Reed is.  People actively hate Reed.  With the exception of Brandel Chamblee, I think a lot of people are just "meh" with Koepka because he seems so robotic and lacks personality.  But damn he shows up at majors.

Koepka with another birdie.  Now 5 under.  But he just hit his drive way left.  Grass looks tall but kinda wispy.

This group has been fun to watch. Koepka playing great and Tiger with the bad start and now a few birdies and an eagle on #4.
