McIlroy Shows The 104th PGA Championship Way After The First 24-Hours In Tulsa

 Rory McIlroy leads after the first round of the 2022 PGA Championship.  It is the fifth time in his major championship career that he has held at least a share of the lead at the end of Round 1.   He did that at the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews (finished T-3), 2011 Masters (finished T-15), 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club (Won) and 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club (Won). McIlroy, who shot 64 (-6) in the final round of the 2022 Masters, becomes the first ...

Woods Battling Now To Play All Four Rounds In Tulsa.

After his superhuman effort at the Masters, Tiger Woods is up against it to play all four rounds in the PGA Championship at Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Woods, and teeing-up in the company of Rory McIlroy and Jordan ...

McIlroy Ignites Major Win Hopes No. 5 With Lowest PGA Opening Score In Seven Years

MacIntyre Happy With Lowest PGA Championship Opener Despite A ‘Brutal’ Southern Hills Course

Top-ranked Scot was clearly happy to be off what he described as a ‘brutal’ course with a level par 70 as the winds picked-up on the opening day of the PGA Championship in Tulsa, Oklahoma. MacIntyre was out in the first group just after 7am local time, and off the 10th tee in warm but early overcast sky on the Southern Hills course. It turned into two different nines for the Oban lefty, being out in two-under but coming home in two-over, and ending his round just after noon in bright sunshine ...

Dave Cannon Honoured With PGA of America Lifetime Achievement Award in Photojournalism.

Dave Cannon was asked to look after the cameras belonging to a family friend at a rugby match between Midland Counties and the famed New Zealand All Blacks in Leicester, England, some 44 years ago.

Dave decided to shoot a few frames himself from the corner of the field, shooting about a roll and a half of film, or 50 frames. When one of his pictures ended up atop a story in the Sunday Express, it ...

Lowry: “Bernie, You’re Breaking Up There! We Can’t Hear You”.

Shane Lowry has always been one of more affable top-ranked golfers to work with.  He’s approachable,  he’s honest, he gives you a good line, he wears his heart on his shirt sleeve and he’ll tell you sometimes when to ‘go take a long walk on a short pier’ if he’s not happy with you for something you may have written. I guess that’s how it should be at what we call the cutting edge of golf reporting. Take Lowry’s pre-PGA Championship presser early Wednesday ...
