According to VividSeats, the average price of tickets sold leading up to the 2019 PGA Championship is down almost 20% in comparison to the 2018 PGA Championship. He's won three of the last eight major championships, a run that would be front-page news if his name was, say, Woods or McIlroy.

The 2016 US Open victor Johnson needs to add to his single major triumph if he wants to end his career with a haul his talent deserves.

Woods spent a considerable amount of time on and around each of the greens as he polished off the front nine in 2 hours, 20 minutes, the heavy, wet rough rimming the putting complexes sometimes giving him fits.

"I really haven't thought about that yet", Woods said at his post-Masters news conference. "I don't know. The only thing I can promise you is this - I will be prepared". But we'll be there nice and early and I'll have plenty of time to prep.

Golf is a leisurely game.

New York's Long Island is famous for its rich residents and extravagant parties, but even the Great Gatsby himself might blush at the extent of the fireworks should the Great Golfer make it two in a row after an 11-year major void. "As you get people excited to play, and from a fan's perspective, there was this big gap".

The PGA has held mostly an August slot since 1969, though there was an odd staging of the major in February in Florida in 1971 (won by Jack Nicklaus), and a move to July to accommodate the Summer Olympics in 2016.

I can't blame them, because there is some merit to that.

And it appears to be working - Trump when the former vice president was endorsed by the International Assocation of Fire Fighters. A Monmouth University survey of New Hampshire voters show Biden is favored by 36% of voters.

James Adducci, a 39-year-old man from Wisconsin who pocketed $1.19 million after betting on Tiger Woods to win the Masters, has bet $100,000 of his winnings on Tiger completing a Grand Slam, according to Golf Digest's Stephen Hennessey. His weakness - inasmuch as somebody who's top 10 in strokes gained and doesn't have a finish outside the top 30 on the season has one - is that he hasn't started strongly.

Tiger Woods took care of the latter.

Why do the critics care so much about Daly having an unfair advantage?

My advice to the critics: Just let this one go.

"Extremely good", Kerry Haigh, the championships director for the PGA of America, said Sunday. But very few former champions play in majors into their 60s.

The decision to shift the PGA came two years ago as part of a revamp of the global golf calendar, when Woods was still recovering from the spinal fusion surgery that would end his nagging back injuries and allow him to return to elite golf success. That's the way I'm thinking about it. Due to this fact, the first step in my research process was gathering tournament results from the previous Tour events held on this course which I noted above. 'At Bethpage we have to factor in the cool weather - and how will he cope getting the ball out of the rough?

Shortly after teeing off on the first hole at 7:40 a.m. with the thermometer reading 43 degrees, Woods got a chuckle after the impact of his approach to the green brought up a couple of worms. Martin has a birth defect that restricts circulation in his right leg, making it hard for him to walk 18 holes. Westwood joked. "No, I envisage him to be in contention at those two".
