    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images Arguably the biggest sporting event since the start of the coronavirus pandemic gets underway Thursday — as pro golf contests one of its four majors, the PGA Championship, at Harding Park in San Francisco. Tiger Woods is back — teeing it up for only the second time since the virus halted the golf season. In his return, at Jack Nicklaus’ Memorial Tournament three weeks ago, he finished in a modest 40th place tie, posting +6 for the four rounds at Muirfield Village. But Woods is already off to a solid start at Harding Park. As of this writing, the 15-time major champion is -1 through 10 holes, putting him just outside the top 20. The lead...

Steve Stricker, who played a practice round with Woods ahead of the tournament, said he made the switch to allow for more flexibility and comfort.

    Tiger Woods arrives at the PGA Championship this week in search of a 16th major win, a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour event victory and, perhaps, a shot at redemption. The last time Tiger played in the PGA Championship, he failed to make the cut after shooting rounds of 72 and 73, respectively, at Bethpage State Park in May 2019. It was an especially painful outing, considering it was his first event after winning The Masters. Which begs the question: How will he fare this week, over a year removed from his last major and with only five PGA Tour events under his belt this season? Tiger’s 2020 campaign has been a mixed bag. It started with a win at...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The sun was nowhere to be found at Harding Park, but the comment came through as clear as day. “Man, it’s cold out here,” I overhead — well, excluding one adjective — while walking past the practice green. The PGA Championship being played in August is nothing new. Playing it in weather like San Francisco’s this time of year is. Before 2019, this weekend was the traditional time for the least glamorous of golf’s four major tournaments. Two years ago, many of the same players in San Francisco now trudged through triple-digit temperatures and humidity percentages in St. Louis. But on Wednesday afternoon, the temperature was 57 degrees with 85 percent humidity. But you know that when...

    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.

    It may not be quite what we are used to, but major golf is finally back as Brooks Koepka defends his PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in California this week. The global coronavirus pandemic wiped out The Open Championship for 2020, while each of the other three majors had to be rescheduled. A three-month enforced break of the PGA Tour perhaps came at an opportune moment for some while halting the momentum of others. As golf gears up for its first major of 2020, behind closed doors of course, we take a look at the players we expect to be competing in California.

    For only the sixth time this season, we get to watch Tiger Woods play golf — and what better place to resume than the season’s first major? Woods, ranked 15th in the world, will seek to win his fifth PGA Championship this week after victories in 1999, 2000 and 2006-07. It not only would be his fifth win in this major (matching his wins total for the Masters) but also would give him a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour event win. Woods has only played in five PGA Tour tournaments this season — not including The Match, alongside Peyton Manning — and produced mixed results. He started the season off with a win in the ZOZO Championship, followed by top-10...

    Winning continues to be a lucrative affair at the PGA Championship in 2020. This year’s tournament will continue to feature an uber-profitable purse, which should be of particular interest to Brooks Koepka, winner of the last two PGA Championships. If he is able to win an unprecedented third-straight PGA Championship, he stands to make nearly $2 million for the third year in a row at the PGA Championship. Even those golfers who can’t sniff a first-place finish stand to make decent money this week — so long as they make the cut — with the clear-cut last-place finisher making nearly $20,000.

    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...
    (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. CBS Sports golf reporter Amanda Balionis says that the lack of fans will actually test golfers in a different way on this particular course. >>STREAM: PGA Championship “I think that really just allows the golf course to show all of its teeth.

    (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. By contrast, the purse for the 2020 tournament is $11...

    He reduced the golf course to a pitch-and-putt with power that got everyone’s attention. That was John Daly at Crooked Stick in 1991 when he followed his caddie’s instructions — “Kill it!” — on his way to winning the PGA Championship. It was Tiger Woods at Augusta National in 1997, when he hit pitching wedge into a par 5 and won the Masters by 12 shots. Not to be forgotten is J.B. Holmes at the Phoenix Open in 2006. He hit 4-iron from 263 yards — back when a 263-yard shot over water to a par 5 was considered a risk — and finished with a tee shot that took bunkers, water, everything out of play. Fascination with the long...
    Next week, the future of this year’s Ryder Cup will be decided. While most other major sporting events have cut their losses and delayed until 2021, golf’s biggest team event has been holding out, waiting to see if the contest at Whistling Straits, near Sheboygan, Wis., from Sept. 22-27, can still go ahead. It’s not looking good. Three of golf’s four major tournaments — the Masters, the PGA Championship and the US Open — have already been postponed, while the remaining one, Britain’s Open Championship, has been canceled. Certainly, most of the players due to be involved at Whistling Straits would rather it took place next year, especially if the fans can’t be there to watch it. “A Ryder Cup...

(Photo by Tim Bradbury/Getty Images)DraftKings PGA: 2020 Travelers Championship Picks and AnalysisI am a huge fan of Harbour Town and the RBC Heritage event! It did not disappoint. The leaderboard was littered with top golfers and ultimately came down to the ball striking and putting combination of Webb Simpson. Another note I took away is driving accuracy. Ancer was putting like a a Grillo and he made up for it with his over 90% fairway accuracy. I’ll store that in my...

    FORT WORTH, Texas — As the Charles Schwab Challenge second round was being played at Colonial Country Club on Friday, rumors of whether Tiger Woods would play next week at the RBC Heritage were swirling. There was a report earlier in the week that Woods’ yacht, “Privacy,’’ had departed Jupiter Beach, Fla., where Woods lives, up the Atlantic Coast into Georgia. That fueled speculation that it might be headed to Hilton Head, S.C., where Woods would play the RBC. That’s not happening. Woods, who had until 30 minutes after the conclusion of Friday’s Charles Schwab second round to commit to the RBC, was not heard from.
