    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...
    (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....
    The Post’s Mark Cannizzaro makes his picks for this week’s PGA Championship at Harding Park in San Francisco: Adam Scott The 40-year-old Australian and past Masters champion hasn’t played on the PGA Tour since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the tour in March. Scott, who’s been working on his game in North Carolina in recent weeks, finished in the top 10 at the past two PGA Championships, including a tie for eighth at Bethpage Black last year. This is a total hunch pick, because inactivity generally is not a positive. He’s going for a three-peat, the first player in 93 years to do it at a PGA Championship. And he appeared to find his form last week in Memphis, coming...

    (CBS San Francisco)- This week’s PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park will look different than any major that we’ve seen before. No fans will be in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic and the golfer’s take on a Harding Park course that presents a variety of different challenges.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — On Tuesday, Tiger Woods flashed back to what it was like before COVID-19 forced fans from the course during a PGA Tour Event. It was 2005. Woods and John Daly were locked in a duel at the WGC-American Express Championship that whipped the Harding Park crowd into a frenzy, more reminence of a rock concert than a golf tournament. Woods would later call the environment electric. “You couldn’t have put two of the more crowd-drawing people together in a playoff,” Woods said during a pre-tourney Zoom call Tuesday. “Myself and John Daly. It was loud. The people were into it. It was a lot of fun. I still look back on it. I just didn’t...

    (CBS San Francisco) — TPC Harding Park has enjoyed a long and interesting life on the banks of Lake Merced in southwest San Francisco. The notable history of this municipal course began in 1925, two years after the death of its namesake Warren G. Harding. The 29th president, who enjoyed golf, died at the city’s Palace Hotel, while on a tour of the west. The public gem will add another chapter this weekend when it hosts the 2020 PGA Championship. Renowned course architects William Watson and Sam Whiting built Harding Park Golf Club on 163 acres of city property almost a century ago. (The pair also designed the Lake Course at the nearby Olympic Club.) Watson and Whiting were paid...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The PGA Championship in August seems familiar enough. That’s the place at the end of the major championship season that it once occupied for the better part of 70 years when it was known as “Glory’s Last Shot.” Now it’s the first shot. It’s one reminder just how much the COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down golf for three months, has led to a year like no other even for sports that have been able to resume.
