McIlroy will soon pile up the trophies, insists Bjorn

McIlroy will soon pile up the trophies, insists Bjorn

This is the last time the event will be held in the month of August, as it is being moved to May starting in 2019. Although CBS Sports' production quality, announcers and story-telling have always set the standard for golf broadcasts, the necessity of technology has changed viewer expectations. "With this PGA Championship, we are bringing it all together to create a pretty cool visual for viewers".

McIlroy is one of several big hitters arriving at the year's final major in top form. But there are a plethora of sub-plots that are nearly just as appealing. "I didn't really play well at the U.S. Open". Justin Thomas won it previous year at Quail Hollow, and is coming off of a dominant performance last weekend, where he won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Streelman finished in the top 10 at the John Deere Classic last month, but he missed the cut last week at the Barracuda Championship, the tournament that runs concurrently with the WGC event. And of course, Tiger.

St. Louis, MO, USA; Justin Rose addresses the media in a press conference during the Wednesday practice round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club. "I've been part of Ryder Cups since 1997 and I've not gone into a Ryder Cup where the United States don't have a great team".

Thomas, last year's PGA Player of the Year and top money victor, has two other wins this season - the Honda Classic in February and last October's CJ Cup in South Korea. The par-70 course measures 7,300 yards. He also famously won the 2010 Open at St Andrews and remains SA's most likely title contender.

Ahead of the first tee shot, Jon Turner takes a look at five players he expects to contend for the title.

"You know what's fascinating?" said another Cardinals World Series shortstop, Ozzie Smith.

Side-note: A truly awful week to be wearing trousers.

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough", McIlroy said. He has flashed awesome form in recent weeks and his off-the-tee approach sets him up well for success at PGA Championship events.

That's definitely a nice improvement from last year's Pixel 2 devices, where you'd get a USB-C/3.5mm adapter for the earphones. To make things even more interesting, we now have another leak that puts Google's upcoming Pixel 3 XL front and center.

Long hitters should enjoy a decided advantage at the PGA Championship at Bellerive, where plasticine-like greens and wide fairways will allow for attacking golf and a blitz of birdies.

Beau HosslerHossler plays out of Trinity Forest in Dallas, Texas which lays out very similar to what Bellerive offers.

Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson now occupy the other automatic qualifying berths for what promises to be one of the strongest American teams ever assembled, with Fowler the only one of the top eight without a major title.

Spieth during a practice round prior to the 2018 US PGA Championship. It would also mean a stretch of five events in six weeks. If he can putt at even a marginally average level, he should perform well here.

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.

'By March I saw that his game and his health was in a lot better shape so he's been challenging this year and moving up that points list, which has been fun to watch.

Tiger Woods believes that the golf course is going to be tough to play on due to the increased heat and the damp greens.

The Ryder Cup, scheduled to begin on September 28, was also postponed until the next year. So I think he's an easy pick from that regard. I love Joaquin Niemman just as much as the next guy, but I truly do not understand how he is priced better than an experienced veteran like Johnson.
