McIlroy, Singh lead at suspended PGA Championship

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – First came the black cloud that has been following Tiger Woods on the weekend at the majors. The real storm showed up a short time later Saturday in the PGA Championship, halting the brilliant start by Rory McIlroy and giving Woods a chance to stop his slide at Kiawah Island. McIlroy opened with three birdies and two par saves, none bigger than on the third hole when his tee shot lodged in a thick tree limb that was rotting about 7 feet off the ground. He reached up to remove the ball, took a penalty drop and made a 6-foot par putt to continue on his way.

Tiger Woods shares lead at PGA Championship

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – The major known as “Glory’s Last Shot” turned into one last chance for Tiger Woods. On the toughest scoring day in PGA Championship history, Woods made putts from one end of Kiawah Island to the other Friday for a 1-under 71 that gave him a share of the lead with Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson going into the weekend.

Golfers tame Kiawah Island in first round of PGA

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Five years ago, a leading golf publication chose Kiawah Island as the toughest golf course in America. Some of the best players in the world made it feel like a walk on the beach Thursday in the PGA Championship. There was no wind in the morning when Carl Pettersson made three birdies on the opening four holes, and not even a freshening breeze could keep the self-proclaimed Swedish redneck from a bogey-free round of 6-under-par 66. It was his first time in 21 tries to break 70 in the PGA Championship, and it gave him a one-shot lead.

Johnson captures Colonial

Zach Johnson won the Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, for his first victory since also winning at Hogan’s Alley two years ago, pulling ahead Sunday when Jason Dufner finally faltered. Johnson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball to its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That left him with a 2-over 72 and a one-stroke victory.

Bradley uses huge rally to win PGA in his first major

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – A rally that ranks among the best. A collapse hardly anyone saw coming. There was even a guy in a red shirt Sunday, pumping his fists with each clutch putt in the final, frenzied hour of the PGA Championship. In a major filled with unfamiliar names, Keegan Bradley delivered an unforgettable finish.

Playing first major, Bradley wins PGA

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — In a major with names hard to remember, Keegan Bradley delivered a comeback difficult to forget. Five shots behind with three holes to play in the PGA Championship, Bradley made back-to-back birdies to begin his rally. Equally stunning was the collapse from Jason Dufner, who was flawless on the home stretch until Sunday, when he made three straight bogeys with the Wanamaker Trophy on the line. Bradley won a three-hole playoff, making him only the third player in at least 100 years to win a major in his first try.

Steele, Dufner share PGA championship lead

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Brendan Steele and Jason Dufner at least can make a name for themselves in the PGA Championship. Until that big trophy is handed out today, however, this major remains very much a mystery. How will they handle the pressure of the final round?

Bunkers create big problems at PGA

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The longest par 70 in major championship history. Water on half of the holes. There was plenty of evidence that Atlanta Athletic Club would be a strong test for the PGA Championship, and it has proven to be just that. But perhaps the biggest challenge is something not many players considered before they arrived.

Woods still matters at PGA Championship
