Tiger Woods receives Presidential Medal of Freedom

Tiger Woods receives Presidential Medal of Freedom

But even before he started his opening round at Hillside with six birdies in the first seven holes, the 46-year-old was talking confidently of his chances of a long-overdue first major title in next week's US PGA Championship.

But it was Mr. Woods' dramatic Masters victory at Augusta National Golf Club last month, ending an 11-year major championship drought, which capped a years-long comeback from injuries and drama in his personal life, including an arrest two years ago for driving under the influence.

With a new spring date, a thrilling venue in Bethpage Black, and the return of Tiger-mania, it's happy hour for the PGA of America. He had won the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship in 2000.

Adducci has been a controversial figure following his Masters payday. The last time he did so was at the 2013 Open, where he tied for sixth. Due to this fact, the first step in my research process was gathering tournament results from the previous Tour events held on this course which I noted above.

In the year in question, Woods played the three majors he quotes within five tournaments from mid-June to late August. Arnold Palmer played his last PGA Championship at age 64. I think that's the preconception that people got when he was in his prime, he was knocking out all the flags, holing all the putts, hitting all the fairways. "It won't be US Open hay but it's a good old three or four inches and if it's wet and a little bit colder that will be significant enough". If it pays off, Adducci will win $10 million.

Kerry Haigh, who oversees the course set-up as the PGA of America's chief championships officer, is upbeat.

Tiger Woods, fifteen-time major victor is unequivocally a cat with nine lives as exemplified by his recent award - America's highest civilian honour which was to him by President Donald Trump in Washington. But the six-time major victor turned CBS analyst can not help but believe this would be an even more unlikely triumph than his resurrection between those cathedral pines. "But if we're going to get rain, now is better than next weekend".

The 2016 US Open victor Johnson needs to add to his single major triumph if he wants to end his career with a haul his talent deserves. "They treat me so well, and I feel that is an advantage".

After Woods secured a one-shot victory to claim his fifth Green Jacket, the former world number one was naturally asked about his pursuit of the all-time major record. If he can do that, then a top-10 finish isn't out of the question. No golfer has ever accomplished that feat.

"I got the better of him at St. Louis and he got the better of me at Augusta", Koepka said. The weather will make this course even more hard this year.

Pepperell, who yesterday moved up to his equal-highest world ranking at No 33, has a unique take on pre-tournament reconnaissance and does not see why he should make an exception for the Majors.

There definitely will be some frowning golfers at the end of the week at Bethpage Black, but for the PGA Championship, it's all smiles.

My husband and I waited in the singles line because we thought we could get through it faster than the regular line.
