PGA CHAMPIONSHIP '18: Facts about final major of the year

Justin Thomas dedicated his win to former PGA Tour player Jarrod Lyle who is battling cancer for the third time

Molinari and Y.E. Yang at the 2009 PGA Championship are the only players to win a major while being paired with Woods on Sunday.

"It's just fantastic that I've literally seen his whole professional career", Love said. Only 13 lineups had more golfers make it to the weekend than mine, but I still finished 75 out of 152 entries because none of my golfers finished in the top 16.

"The part of defending isn't as hard as just winning the golf tournament in general", Thomas said. And from there you can do a lot of extraordinary things, but I see him starting to drop it again.

"You just have to turn up to the next tournament and it's a fresh start".

"He's in a place where it's going to go "boom" and then he's going to start winning a lot of golf tournaments again, and that's actually pretty good fun to watch". Your score is your lineup's total relative to par. It is much more straightforward than other scoring systems, where birdies are worth quite a bit and bogies only hurt you a little bit. "So I think in general‚ major championships are a test of every part of your game".

Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas have already clinched spots, but there are four more automatic spots in play. "So it's great to have him back now".

A Sunday 63 at Firestone, inspired by a red-hot putter, was the flawless way to arrest an otherwise forgettable event for the one-time Major victor, who has a solid record of advancing to the weekend at the PGA. That being said, there is still some risk he withdraws in the middle of the tournament or isn't himself because of the injury.

"When you hit it that close, that often, you're going to miss (some putts)".

CBS Sports' Gary McCord returns to Bellerive for the first time since 1992, when Nick Price broke through for his first major win. However, more than two decades later, its top level looks very much the same as it did when Woods won the first of his 14 majors in 1997. There are much better values than the 18-1 PGA Championship 2018 odds he's getting. You really have to take notice of that. Yet, as Thomas made his way around the South Course he had something to say. Also in the hunt: majors bridesmaid Matt Kuchar, British Open darling Xander Schauffele, and Masters anklebreaker Tony Finau. It would also mean a stretch of five events in six weeks.

Mickelson, a short-game maestro with an easy accessibility to the fans, won his first PGA Tour event while still an amateur and had nine victories when Woods turned pro in 1996. Ollie Schniederjans and Andy Sullivan probably deserves some consideration out of Group D, as well.

"I needed that day off in the ice bath trying to get some inflammation down". I'm 42 now and I've had four back surgeries.

The USGA is often criticized for its U.S. Open setups, whether that's because of long, thick rough or penal green speeds that are created to produce a specific winning score. Cantlay is ranked eighth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green this year.

Tiger Woods believes that the golf course is going to be tough to play on due to the increased heat and the damp greens. The PGA Championship 2018 is the 100th running and it's shaping up to be a star-studded showdown.

Preparing for the major in May, fighting against the elements and remnants of wintry conditions, could be a concern and put additional stress on the superintendents and crews of the courses up north that are slated to host the PGA Championship in the future - and there are many. But for him and the other players who were preparing for a golf tournament that September, they will always remember the one that never took place.
