PGA Championship: First round tee off

Tiger Woods lines up a putt on the sixth green during the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational – Final Round

Love's streak began with the 1986 PGA Championship at Inverness, and the 100th will come at this year's PGA at Bellerive. I have put myself in contention in the majors.

On Thursday, a star-studded feature group including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Thomas will tee off together at the 2018 PGA Championship.

"This week would mean a great deal, especially I've had a really good year so far, I think it would make it into a great year".

"It's certainly close", McIlroy said of his game, which last produced a major championship at the 2014 PGA.

Woods was among the players due to compete at Bellerive Country Club in 2001 when the WGC-American Express Championship was cancelled due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

For the first time in major history the fourth major of the year will move away from TV after talks with both Sky Sports and the BBC broke down prior to the event.

Only Molinari has another PGA TOUR win this season.

"We'll see", said Woods, who only played five holes before his practice round Tuesday was wiped out by thunderstorms.

"I only had to think about it for about a month", Woods said of the career Slam. "That's all I'm going to say".

Playing the back nine first at a sweltering Bellerive Country Club, Fowler was slow out of the gate, mixing two birdies with what would be his only bogey of the day. And when Johnson became engaged to Paulina Gretzky, many of those fans became fans of the former U.S. Open champion, too.

"I think I was probably a little more anxious past year, just because there was a big focus right after winning the Open Championship", Spieth said Tuesday as thunder boomed and rain pelted Bellerive Country Club, washing out many practice rounds.

If nothing else, Johnson pointed out Tuesday that he'll have plenty of extended family in the crowd.

That noise? It's softened considerably during the a year ago, and the spotlight that accompanied him to Quail Hallow shines a little less brightly on Spieth in St. Louis. "Where your ball lands is where it's going to really stay".

Nicklaus needed just three tries after winning the PGA in '63 to win his first British Open, and Player likewise needed three tries after the '65 U.S. Open to win his first British. Many squeezed in a practice round Monday, but almost all hoped to do the bulk of their preparation at relatively unfamiliar Bellerive on Tuesday and Wednesday.
