PGA Championship Predictions: One Of These Five Golfers Will Win Wanamaker Trophy

PGA Championship Predictions: One Of These Five Golfers Will Win Wanamaker Trophy

Coming off a lackluster performance in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Woods arrived in St. Louis on Sunday night, then had caddie Joe LaCava do a scouting mission at Bellerive while Woods sought to rest and rehab with the help of ice baths.

It wasn't so much media day at the 100th PGA Championships on Tuesday as Tiger Woods Day. Woods did it twice.

Bjorn, who matched his best major showing with a share of second at the 2005 PGA, was replaced in the field by American Kevin Streelman.

Thomas hasn't heard that in a while.

Spieth arrives at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis needing a victory to become only the sixth player to win all four modern majors - joining Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

Rose, whose history of back issues includes a three-month layoff in 2016, said his withdrawal last week was less of an injury and more of a precaution knowing the year's last major event was a week away.

"Now, I've had a bum knee most of those years, but I could wheel it around that".

Thomas has come into his own.

Thomas weighed less past year, about 145 pounds at the start of it. "I mean, you look at the World Rankings right now, you look at the top 20 players, they're dominated by Europeans and Americans".

This is a deep friendship that transcends any rivalry, and Thomas was never overly bothered by the mention of being Spieth's close friend.

But he refused to directly answer the question when asked whether the 14-time major victor, who is now 20th on the points list, had already done enough.

"I'll try as hard as I can", Woods said. Last week Rory was playing a driver and seven iron into the 16 hole that was playing at 648 yards... real yards, albeit all downhill.

And all these good players you see now, these superstars will now play the ball one way or the other. All that did was ratchet up the hysteria that perhaps another major is in the cards.

Rory McIlroy comes in to Bellerive as a two-time PGA Champion, winning this event in 2012 and 2014.

"It will be pretty insane out there", Thomas said. So yeah, it will be a cool week.

Woods has not played the PGA since 2015 at Whistling Straits, where he missed the cut.

On Tuesday morning, as players were out on the range or playing a practice round on the course, two hijacked airplanes slammed into the World Trade Center in New York City. It did not happen for McIlroy at the Masters or Phil Mickelson at the US Open, and the Texan will surely have to wait a while longer as well.

Fresh off the sumptuous buffet that is British Open TV coverage, where every minute of the long, long days across the pond reaches your TV, the PGA Championship seems positively spartan. In the family of golf majors, the PGA is still younger than the Open Championship and U.S. Open, which both date back to the 19 century. Can Jordan Spieth complete the career grand slam? "The viewer is now seeing and understanding data, like shot apex, that they might have not have known about just a few years ago. I know that Tiger always wanted to compete, and he's been moving up the points this year which has been fun to watch".

Can you tell how hot it is in the afternoons at Bellerive based on how many drink-related accessories we chose? Can Thomas go where only Woods has gone before? It features a plethora of greenside bunkers on almost every hole, but the greens are above-average in size so most golfers should not be challenged too much when it comes to approach shots. For Woods, the defining moment of a comeback.
