Tiger Looks For 16th Major This Weekend At Bethpage

After being held since 1972 in the dog days of summer, the tournament's move to May should ensure milder weather and more attention from American sports fans, whose thoughts by August have invariably turned to American football.

"I will meet with John and just talk through where he can go and can't go", Haigh said. "You've got to hit it not only straight but you've got to hit it far". If I do what I'm supposed to do, then I think I'd be tough to beat.

It seems ludicrous now because Tiger Woods is sitting on 15 majors, but getting that second one was important.

It's safe to say Tiger Woods was not impressed with the request.

There is no reason why Tiger Woods can't win the PGA Championship starting on Thursday at Bethpage Black.

As for the play itself this week, let's not even try to sugarcoat it, it's going to be brutal!

"I wanted to play at Quail Hollow (the Wells Fargo Championship), but to be honest with you, I wasn't ready yet to start the grind of practising and preparing and logging all those hours again", he said.

Bethpage - Reigning British Open champion Francesco Molinari won't be carrying bad memories from a late Masters collapse onto the course with him this week at the PGA Championship. Woods played nine holes Monday, spent Tuesday practicing on the range and chipping area, and planned to play nine holes Wednesday.

"You keep doing what you're supposed to do, you play good, you peak at the right times". What do you think is happening?

The course measures more than 7,400 yards and will play to par-70. It's obvious just by looking at the yardage that a long and accurate drive is needed followed by an approach within 40' to avoid the big number. "Wedge game is going to be a big factor".

The par-3s are no sleepers as they're all protected by strategically placed bunkers and slight elevation changes.

"You lose a shot or two out there, and you don't feel like you're going to get it back".

Canada's top-ranked player, Adam Hadwin, has not fared well in either of his two previous PGA Championship appearances but is trending upward. The bunkers in my opinion don't get enough love (or hate depending on how you look at it). Given the overall difficulty of Bethpage, it says a lot that Moore has been able to succeed there twice. He missed out on a playoff in the PGA Championship later that year at Whistling Straits when he set his club on loose sand without realizing it was a bunker.

Parnevik, who won the PGA Tour five times, issued a scathing rebuke of Woods' behaviour when his infidelities hit the headlines. Thomas finished tied for sixth in last year's tournament. He's out of the field so I had to do some soul searching to find a replacement victor. Overall, Hadwin is just five for 10 making the weekend in majors and has stated his desire to improve in this area. If my knee was broke, I would have had it fixed. The body doesn't respond like it used to, doesn't bounce back quite as well, so I've got to be aware of that.

"There's a lot of one-time major winners", McIlroy said.

"I think with the rain we've had the last couple of days, the length will definitely help. They're all energetic, and you come back and you've got good feelings this week and just kind of hopefully you ride that momentum".

But most of the field of 156 will be in the supporting cast as one man takes centre stage. The Barclays is part of the Fed Ex Cup. It will significantly alter the PGA Championships we've grown accustomed to seeing.

You know, that's the question for all of us that's been a hard one to figure out, to put our finger on. Like Frankie Molinari won the Open a year ago, but the Ryder Cup made him, and that just sums it up for Europe.
