Tiger Woods begins first PGA round since 2015

Here's how to watch the US PGA Championship to see if Molinari, Koepka or Patrick Reed can make it two majors in a calendar year.

It is the third career major start for Suri, who also played in the 2017 and 2018 Open Championships. "And a lot of stretching".

Australian club pro Craig Hocknull finished at two-over with a 72, while bigger-name countryman Cameron Smith struggled during a 74.

Thomas Bjorn has withdrawn on the eve of the PGA Championship after an old back injury flared up, giving first alternate Kevin Streelman a spot in the field at Bellerive.

He returns almost as much of a mystery as when the year started. Mickelson can level up his game by taking risky shots and putts.

That was the second time that Tiger Woods (+2800 to win the PGA Championship) won the tournament back-to-back times, with the previous instance coming in 1999 and 2000.

It's been like that all year.

Unfortunately for the tournament's TV ratings, one of them isn't Tiger. He's not a insane popular pick among the analysts, but he's proven at the U.S. Open to not be discounted.

Woods says he expects plenty of players on the course, and "I'm going to be one of them". "He just had his fourth back surgery, so to get to this point is a phenomenal achievement already".

"I like the way the PGA sets it up", Koepka said. "You know, hopefully this week I do better and can sort of break that run".

"I think he's in a place where he's contending every week and as a player you go through spells where you don't quite get over the line", Bjorn said ahead of the US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

Woods has never been much for moral victories, though he has said throughout the year he considers himself "blessed" simply to be playing. All those things, he's been through. "I missed a couple of 7-8 footers for par which was frustrating. but you can't hole everything, and I did hole my fair share today". Jordan Spieth is another player with intention.

Now more than 15 months since his spinal fusion surgery, many are impressed by his form and evidence of any lasting impact form the injury has not been observed - although his swing is nearly unrecognisable from the one that won 14 major titles. "Sometimes golf is just like that, and it's just a case of keep doing what you're doing and eventually it will happen".

"You just have to turn up to the next tournament and it's a fresh start". It's what I build my year around.

The rain interrupted a lot of schedules. "But there's so many good guys that are right there, right behind me that I've got to continue to play very, very well if I want to stay in that position". And not since Woods in 2006-07 has anyone won the PGA in consecutive years. "It's a little bit of a bonus event", he said of what is just his sixth career tilt at a major, but fifth in the last two years.
