    By DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer 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...
    Adam Scott took his own sweet time returning to competitive golf. When he finally showed up at the PGA Championship this week, everyone else ranked inside the top 50 had already revved up for the season’s first major by playing at least one tournament somewhere. But Scott, who checked in at No. 10 this week, is just as eager as the other 49 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. Scott took a pass, instead skipping both Colonial and the Memorial — tournaments he’d won previously — and instead enjoyed a rare long break back home in...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Who’s the baddest man in golf right now? With the No. 1 ranking already having changed hands four times this year, that answer is up for debate on the eve of the first major championship to be played in more than a year with this week’s PGA Championship at Harding Park. There’s no debate in the mind of Brooks Koepka, though. Koepka doesn’t care who officially holds the top spot — it’s Justin Thomas at the moment thanks to his win Sunday in Memphis. He doesn’t care that Bryson DeChambeau has hogged so much of the attention for the past two months with his bulked-up frame and added length off the tee. Koepka will walk to the...

    By DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brooks Koepka now has gone more than a full year without winning, a drought he hasn't experienced since he was still new enough on the PGA Tour that his name was mistakenly pronounced “cupcake.” If it doesn't seem like a full year, that's because it really wasn't.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The last question posed to Tiger Woods in his pre-tournament press conference Tuesday at Harding Park in advance of this week’s PGA Championship came from a reporter who asked him, “Can you win this week?’’ “Of course,’’ Woods said with a broad smile. And just like that, Woods’ question-and-answer session was over before anyone could ask this follow-up question: “What makes you think that?’’ Because there are a lot of factors conspiring to make this a potentially-difficult week for Woods to succeed — whether success is measured by winning the tournament, contending or merely making the cut. Let’s start with the fact that by the time he tees off his opening round alongside Rory McIlroy and Justin...

    The course is one Tiger Woods knows well and where he has winning memories. The PGA Championship is a major he has won four times, more than anyone except Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen. Woods learned last year that brings no guarantee of playing well.

    (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...
    The 2020 PGA Championship will be the first major tournament event of the PGA Tour season since the coronavirus pandemic forced the alteration of the schedule. The event was originally scheduled to take place May 14-17 and be the second major of the season after the Masters. But the pandemic forced the postponement of nearly all events, pushing the PGA Championship back to August and the Masters to November. The tournament has been held each year since 1916. The only exceptions were in 1917 and 1918 during World War I and in 1943 because of World War II. The tournament’s first winner, Jim Barnes, received $500 and a diamond-studded gold medal.

    LAS VEGAS — It was once theorized that when Tiger Woods aged and faded from dominance, golf might become old news, too.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn.

    (CNN)Justin Thomas is officially the best golfer in the world again after winning his 13th PGA Tour event on Sunday. The American clinched victory at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Tennessee, US, by three strokes to regain the world No. 1 ranking for the first time since June 2018. He ended John Rahm's short reign at the top in the process, with just four days until the start of the PGA Championship.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — John Daly and Vijay Singh were the latest players to withdraw from the PGA Championship next week at TPC Harding Park, making 12 players either exempt or offered invitations who have chosen not to play.
