    SAN FRANCISCO — Rory McIlroy was cruising. Not a care in the world. He owned the world No. 1 ranking. He was in great form, with six consecutive top-5 finishes, including one victory. And he was defending his 2019 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in March. Then the PGA Tour, along with the rest of sports, was shut down by the coronavirus pandemic. Since the PGA Tour’s restart in June, McIlroy’s results have been trending alarmingly in the wrong direction entering Thursday’s opening round of the PGA Championship at Harding Park. “Before the world sort of shut down, I was playing some really good golf,’’ McIlroy said Wednesday. “Then having that three-month break, coming back, everything sort of changed. Everything...

The coronavirus pandemic quieted sports books when it forced leagues to halt play in March and even though some have returned, the PGA Championship at San Francisco's TPC Harding Park has distinct advantages, said Chris Altruda, national...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tiger Woods appears to have something new in store for this PGA Championship: his putter. Woods has won all but one of his 15 majors with a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS, the putter he borrowed from Mark O’Meara in 1998 and never returned. The only other time he switched at a major was at St. Andrews in 2010, when he used a Nike Method. Woods has experimented with other putters since then, such as a TaylorMade variety in 2018 before going back to his regular putter at the Tour Championship, which he won. This week he has been working with a putter just like his Cameron Newport but with adjustable weights in the sole to...

    By DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Harding Park is a public golf course with a history of elite champions. Tiger Woods was No. 1 in the world when he won a World Golf Championship here in 2005, and when he went 5-0 in his matches at the Presidents Cup in 2009. Rory McIlroy was No. 1 when he became the first player who had to win seven matches to capture the Match Play in 2015. The San Francisco Open finally came to Harding Park in 1944. The winner was Byron Nelson. It hosted a PGA Tour event in the 1960s called the Lucky International. Six of the seven champions are now in the World Golf Hall...
    After a nearly six-month layoff, Alex Beach makes his return to competitive golf this week … at the PGA Championship. Talk about hitting the ground running. The 2007 Stillwater Area High School graduate had been traveling and playing essentially full time in January and February, bouncing back and forth between the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour before COVID-19 hit. Once both tours were shut down, so was Beach’s game. He spends his winters in Jupiter, Fla., and golf was shut down quickly in the Palm Beach area when the coronavirus struck the United States. He didn’t play in any capacity for about nine weeks. That put a halt to what was likely the most important season of his...
    (CBS San Francisco) — TPC Harding Park has a special meaning to the people of San Francisco. And with the PGA Championship scheduled to begin tomorrow, it should shine brightly on the national stage as well (chance of fog notwithstanding). Too bad that the municipal course, usually open to anyone who wants to play it, will be closed to fans for the season’s first major. In-person sports during a pandemic are surreal for those few who are lucky (or unlucky) enough to experience them. “I have been for a few (baseball) games,” says KPIX sports director Dennis O’Donnell. “There’s no life within the stadium, or outside the ropes at a golf tournament, including Harding Park.” >>READ: TPC Harding Park Profile:...
    RORY McILROY believes he can finally cop another Major this week — because USPGA organisers have taken the handcuffs off him. The Northern Irishman, 31, reckons he and the rest of the game’s big hitters have suffered because everyone has become so obsessed with trying to rein them in. 3The Northern Irishman is trusting his driver to deliver him a fifth Major titleCredit: EPA But he has always rated the USPGA as his best chance of adding to his four Majors. He has already won the title twice and said the Harding Park course in San Francisco offers him a great chance to end his six-year wait to add to his tally.

    (CBS San Francisco) — Going into the PGA Championship, it’s already been a long, strange season on the PGA Tour. And in some sense, it’s also only just beginning. PGA Tour Season So Far The 2019-2020 schedule kicked off innocuously enough with A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier back in September and rolled through its fall and winter events without much out of the ordinary. Then COVID-19 hit, stopping the Players Championship after one round. The PGA Tour, like most sports and much of the country in general was forced into an extended break. Three months and multiple cancellations and postponements later, the Tour picked up again with a revised calendar. The Open Championship opted to take the year off....

    Majors golf returns beginning Thursday with the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. Justin Thomas won his 13th PGA Tour event last weekend at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational by three shots over Brooks Koepka, Tom Lewis, Daniel Berger and Phil Mickelson.

    It may have come a few months late, and in an order we’re not used to, but golf is finally ready to experience its first major championship event of the season. The 2020 PGA Championship takes place Thursday through Sunday, nearly three months after its original date of mid-May. The move, of course, was necessary as the sports world scrambled to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic. That said, it’s likely the change in date may confuse casual golf fans, especially considering it was traditionally played in August as the fourth and final major of the season before moving to May in 2019. The same could likely be said for the remainder of golf’s four major events, all of which...
    The NCAA Board of Directors is allowing each division of the association to decide independently whether it will be able to conduct championship events safely in fall sports such as soccer, volleyball and lower levels of football during the coronavirus pandemic. The board had been considering what to do about fall championship events sponsored by the NCAA, but instead of making a broad decision across three divisions, it set parameters for each to make its own call by Aug. 21. According to the board’s decision, at least 50% of teams competing in a fall sport in any division must conduct a regular season this fall for a championship to be held. Championships may use reduced fields of teams or competitors...

    The PGA Championship has released tee times and pairings for its 2020 tournament, including a few massive featured groups. The biggest of those, arguably, is the grouping of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. The three have combined for seven PGA Championships and, in the 2019-20 season, five wins and 18 top-10 finishes. Woods won a major last season at The Masters and is looking to win his fifth PGA Championship. McIlroy is looking for his third overall, while Thomas looks for his second (and fourth win of the season). But they’re not the only huge group playing this week. The grouping of Brooks Koepka (PGA Championship), Gary Woodland (U.S. Open) and Shane Lowry (British Open) represent winners...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A thick, misty layer of fog draped over San Francisco’s TPC Harding Park Golf Course Wednesday morning. For most San Franciscans it was a pretty typical start to an August day, but for the best golfers in the world in town for the PGA Championship, it was a sign of conditions to come. After several weeks playing in hot, humid weather back east, the PGA Tour pros are confronted with the conditions that normally baffle late summer tourists and fuel the sales of sweatshirts in the shops on Fisherman’s Wharf. Few of the pros have the local knowledge of Tiger Woods, who played collegiately at Stanford. “For me, when it’s cooler like this, it’s important...
    By JIM LITKE, AP Sports Writer Adam Scott took his own sweet time returning to competitive golf. When he finally showed up at the PGA Championship in San Francisco this week, everyone else ranked inside the top 10 had already revved up for the season’s first major by playing at least one tournament somewhere. But Scott, who checked in at No. 9 this week, is just as eager as everyone else to find out who got the work-life balance experiment right. Nearly every other pro rushed back from the pandemic-induced layoff to get back on the course beginning in mid-June. Tiger Woods was an exception, playing only once. Scott took a pass, instead skipping both Colonial and the Memorial —...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The spotlight on Jordan Spieth should be bright enough to cut through the marine layer blanketing Harding Park this week at the PGA Championship. Win this major and he joins the most exclusive club in golf with the final leg of the career Grand Slam. Only five other players — Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen — have won all four majors since the Masters began in 1934. This is his fourth chance, and each year becomes more difficult. The longest anyone went from winning the third leg to completing the Grand Slam was three years by Player and Nicklaus. And hardly anyone is talking about it. It’s not because Brooks...

    (CBS San Francisco)- This week’s PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park will look different than any major that we’ve seen before.

    There’s a clear favorite (or two, depending on whom you ask) to win the 2020 PGA Championship. Brooks Koepka enters the 2020 iteration of this event having won each of the last two outings.

And hardly anyone is talking about it. It’s not because Brooks...
