Doug Ferguson: Dustin Johnson the best player with only 1 major

Dustin Johnson was on the wrong side of history at the last PGA Championship. It wasn’t because Brooks Koepka, his best friend in golf, walked away from Bellerive with the Wanamaker Trophy for his third major championship. By finishing 10 shots behind, Johnson set a most obscure record by going eight consecutive majors at No. 1 in the world without winning any of them. And the beat goes on.

PGA a new major challenge for Tiger Woods with a familiar look

Tiger Woods, the Masters champion, is going for the second leg of the Grand Slam on a long, wet course at Bethpage Black. It all sounds so familiar. For Woods, it feels entirely different. He goes into the PGA Championship having not played since the Masters and realizing he’s not the same player as when he won at Augusta National and Bethpage in consecutive majors in 2002.

Couch Slouch: Tiger Woods’ comeback not even the best in golf history

Tiger Woods hysteria resumes this week at the PGA Championship, in the wake of his widely proclaimed “greatest comeback in sports history” last month at the Masters. I am going to say this one time and one time only, and I am going to be very, very, very, very, very clear about it: It was not the greatest comeback in sports history.

Tiger Woods brings buzz to golf and to the PGA Championship

The PGA Championship agreed to move to May for the first time in 70 years to help the golf season end before football and to energize a century-old major that was looked upon as the last and the least of the Grand Slam events.

John Daly approved to use cart at PGA Championship

John Daly has been approved to use a cart next week in the PGA Championship because of an injured right knee. It will be the first time a player rides a cart at a major championship since Casey Martin in the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club.

Putts won’t drop, but Tiger Woods moves up the board at PGA Championship anyway

Tiger Woods was one good putt away from an eagle that would’ve vaulted him into second place at the PGA Championship. Instead of one putt, he needed three. That disappointing par on the 17th hole left him four behind Brooks Koepka heading into the final day. Not as good as it could’ve been, but if he can get a few putts to drop, Woods knows he’ll have a chance.

Gary Woodland keeps his record and the lead at PGA Championship

Gary Woodland gets to keep his 36-hole record at the PGA Championship and some company in the record book. Tony Finau capped off one of the craziest rounds of his career and matched the PGA Championship record with 10 birdies. The cut was at even-par 140, another PGA record. Tiger Woods had a 66 to stay in the game.
