The Golfing Calendar Is Set For A Major Change In 2019

Before you make any PGA Championship bets or enter a daily fantasy golf tournament on FanDuel or DraftKings, you need to see what the team at SportsLine has to say. Johnson, who will stay at No. 1 regardless of what happens this week, has played Quail Hollow only three times, and not since 2011.

Indeed, some of the winners were, at the time of their victory, quite obscure to European audiences - John Daly, Rich Beem, Shaun Micheel.

That's all changed now.

Getting the course ready for play in March is a big difference from their usual May timeline but Monahan doesn't feel that will impact the quality of golf. But tipping out just below 7,000 yards, it's unlikely Sahalee will host a men's major once again.

A very, very long gap. If I don't win (the PGA) in the next 10 years, then maybe there's added pressure.

Scotsman Tommy Armour, one of the deadliest machine gunners on the Allied side, survived the war and emigrated to America, acquiring dual citizenship later on.

Garcia tees off with U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and Open victor Jordan Spieth at 08:25 local time (12:25 GMT) on Thursday.

Anything was possible for Padraig Harrington in the summer of 2008.

He won his first major title at the 1959 British Open and his last at the 1978 Masters. And if I didn't care, then I wouldn't get angry when I don't play the way I want. He said golf in the second quarter of the year is more lucrative on TV than in the third quarter when the sports calendar is often dominated by the start of the National Football League season.

Louth skies to light up with meteor shower this weekend
Got that sleeping bag ready? It's not expected that any of the meteors from the Perseid shower will hit the ground on Earth. Beshir Marzouk said the best time to see the shower locally is from late night Saturday, Aug. 12 to dawn on Sunday morning.


"The last month and a half, it just hasn't felt as fluid as it usually does", Garcia said on Wednesday.

Scott reckons the course would have been just as well left alone.

McIlroy is a slight favorite, mainly because he has won two times at Quail Hollow - one year with a 62, the other with a 61 - and has finished out of the top 10 just one time in his seven appearances. Strong winds existed for the first two years after the switch but have been relatively benign for most competition days.

But he sped away from the field in the final round, eventually making it a record winning margin thanks to a closing flourish.

No one managed to post anything better than 67, and Olesen needed a long putt on the 18th hole for that.

When the tournament relocated to its permanent home at TPC Sawgrass in 1982, it took a date in March usually two to three weeks prior to the Masters and was part of the tour's Florida Swing.

The visit came a day after Cooper was in Charlotte to tout an expansion by insurance giant Allstate that is expected to bring 2,250 jobs over three years.

The newly minted 24-year-old (July 27th) checks in off T13 at the WGC-Bridgestone and is an 11/1 pre-tourney outright, second only to four-time major victor Rory McIlroy (6/1). Time will tell how long that alliance lasts but both men are relaxed about the situation, with the dynamic between the pair during last week's WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, where the four-times major victor finished in a tie for fifth, clearly a positive one.
