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

The fourth and final Major golf tournament of 2018 will tee off at Bellerive Country Club outside St. Louis on Thursday, with American Justin Thomas trying to become the first repeat victor of the PGA Championship since Tiger Woods accomplished the feat in 2007. "I guess it focuses you straight away".

"Even though it's going to be softer and wet, it's got the potential for I think anybody to work their way up the board", Spieth said.

In the search for a "modern headquarters setting" the PGA of America has been in discussions to partner with Frisco, Texas on a new headquarters and golf facility capable of more close interaction with major corporations and hosting future PGAs or a Ryder Cup.

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood is a player who's seemingly in contention every week, yet he's still searching for his first victory on US soil and his first major championship.

The 42-year-old also missed the 2008 BMW Championships at the same venue due to injury and was only able to play five holes in practice before his pre-tournament press conference yesterday due to thunderstorms. "So, yeah, I mean I can probably relate a little bit".

"So we took care of what we needed to take care of today and we move on to Friday and go do what we need to go do tomorrow". "He's had a hard time getting past the second nine on Sunday afternoon, but I don't put anything past Tiger". So things are going to be different from day to day, and it's just about managing it. I've never had a spinal restriction before, and I played all those years without it.

Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery in April a year ago and admits he feels "blessed" simply to be able to compete again, but has already failed to convert several chances to claim his first victory since 2013. 16, 17 and 18 holes at Bellerive.

And with a second at the Valspar Championship, a fourth at the Quicken Loans and a gutsy share of sixth at Carnoustie Woods was asked how he felt entering his 14th event of the year.

"Unfortunately, I made two mistakes there on 11 and 12 and it cost me a chance to win the championship. I just didn't do it".
