Tiger, McIlroy in 'deep end' early in 100th PGA duel

Bob Sowards

ST. LOUIS - Heavy rains and thunderstorms limited Tiger Woods to just five holes of practice on Tuesday at Bellerive Country Club as he prepares for this week's PGA Championship. "Sometimes golf is just like that, and it's just a case of keep doing what you're doing and eventually it will happen. It's going to be a big atmosphere out there and I'm looking forward to that".

Even Justin Thomas, the defending PGA champion who's coming off a win at last week's WGC-Bridgestone, is hungry for his second career major. "I'm glad that this generation of players gets to experience Tiger Woods, because that's what they need".

"I've been blessed to play this long", Love said.

The 12-time US PGA Tour victor has only bettered Thursday's driving display once, during the 2006 Barracuda Championship.

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. He had to learn how to swing. I didn't really have those issues when I was early in my career because I didn't have a fixed point in my back. McIlroy tied for sixth in the same event last week, his first tournament after tying for second at the British Open three weeks ago.

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough", McIlroy said.

"I mean, I've kept giving myself chances this year". I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted.

Red Dead Redemption 2's first gameplay trailer has arrived
The video also reveals that you, the player, get to choose how good or bad the main character is based on your decisions. A large portion of this Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer examined the role camps play in the game.

"It will always be circled to complete the career Grand Slam, which will ultimately achieve a life-long goal for me, so certainly emphasis in my head on it, but nothing overpowering", Spieth said. The course previously served as host of the 1992 PGA Championship.

Only three players are exempt from that - Patrick Reed, who won the Masters, Brooks Koepka, who won the U.S. Open and Francesco Molinari, who won the British Open last week. "That's all I'm going to say". "Are we going to stay put?"

That could reduce some edge for big hitters.

McIlroy added: "And the feelings that I have now, it's just hard for me to get into those positions, and if I do get into those positions, it will make me a better wedge player".

Bumpy greens could be a concern, Woods said.

"He's been a model and an idol for me growing up, and it's nice to see him back playing good golf, and hopefully we'll be paired together late on Sunday again this week".
