Tiger Woods begins first PGA round since 2015


Justin Thomas is the defending champion, Tiger Woods is set to play his first PGA since 2015 and Jordan Spieth will be chasing the career Grand Slam when the tournament begins Thursday.

Just the sixth golfer to shoot a 63 at a U.S. Open, Fleetwood finished a stroke behind victor Brooks Koepka earlier this year at Shinnecock Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y. In 2017, he placed fourth at the U.S. Open.

"All the majors are similar, but this one in particular seems to have a really, really good atmosphere and it's busy from Monday all the way through". "I was fresh, in form, going to a place where if I worked up the leaderboard I could create a lot of noise".

"It was a tough start to the back nine".

Tiger Woods' practice round on August 8 reportedly saw the star performing at his best, so he could be geared up to surprise a few people this week at the 100th PGA Championship. Other contenders further down the odds to win the PGA Championship include Rickie Fowler (+2200), Justin Rose (+2200), Jon Rahm (+2500), Tiger Woods (+2800), Tommy Fleetwood (+2800), Francesco Molinari (+3300) and Patrick Reed (+3500). The only thing I haven't done is win enough.

Turkey's partnership with USA in jeopardy, Erdogan warns
The currency drop is particularly painful for Turkey because the country finances a lot of its economic growth with foreign money. This is double the level the president imposed on a range of countries earlier this year, including European Union member states.

"So that's something that I'm just trying to go through and try to figure out what I need to do to make that little step from contending and getting into final groups to lifting trophies".

At any golf tournament Rory McIlroy, a charismatic four-time major victor, is the main attraction except when Woods is also competing and then the Northern Irishman is left to handicap the American's chances as much as his own.

Streelman has been a PGA Tour pro since 2008, winning twice on tour - the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship and the 2014 Travelers Championship.

"I kind of went out there today and had a very clear intent on what I wanted to do on every hole", he said.

Citing an old back injury, Thomas Bjorn, a 47-year-old who was born in Denmark and living in Sweden, has been forced to withdraw from his 17th PGA Championship.

Wright then went on to use their pivotal match-ups from last season as reason for the Mercysiders to lift the trophy at the end of the year.

Lousy weather also accompanied the U.S. Senior Open in 2004, turning parking lots into mud puddles and dousing part of the second round.

This marks his 22nd career major, and first since the 2016 Masters. And I don't treat this as any different because it's a major.

NZ's Ryan Fox was happy with his putting on the opening day of the year's final major at Bellerive.

McIlroy is a two-time victor of the PGA Championship, the last one in 2014 at Valhalla.
