Max Homa does not have any records in his specialties yet … The 31-year-old Californian is blooming late, winning three times on the PGA Tour in the last 15 months, his latest win being his second win at Wells Fargo just two weeks ago. He also finished 13th at this year’s Players Tournament. He has now sent the tram to the cup at 12 to join the group at -1. At the same time it’s a pair for Tiger, Rory and Jordan at No. 11.
Yes, in the jumping bird is a tiger, and a big man opens up as a bird. Meanwhile, his play partners in this morning’s group, Jordan Spit and Rory McIlroy, are garden-sized garden birds. Birdie for Players champion Cam Smith at 11. And YE Yang joins the leaders at -2, tearing the chip off the edge at 6, which would still be rolling if the flagpole hadn’t been activated.
-2: Ian (6), McIntyre (5 *), Daly (5)
-1: Borchert (4), Block (3 *), Schaufele (3 *), Smith (2 *), Zalataris (1 *), Kuchar (1), Woods (1 *)
Robert McIntyre claims the 13th pair-five, and the young Scotsman leads the PGA … along with John Daly, who chicks on the 5th 5th! By the way, these are long pairs of fives: the 13th is 632 yards, and the 5th has 656 yards. It will be a long road – just 7556 yards – which may explain why Tiger Woods is already feeling this. While the CBS operator followed him at 10, after a well-placed tee throw, Woods told him in vague terms “give me a break”. Three times. But his mood quickly improves when he raises a second from 95 yards to a couple of feet. He will quickly join the crew at -1.
-2: Daly (5), McIntyre (4 *)
-1: Jan (5), Borchert (4), Block (3 *), Schaufele (2 *), Kuchar (1)
The 2020 US Open champion Bryson DeChambo unfortunately dropped out late at night. The sore wrist that arose while playing ping pong has not yet healed completely. He was replaced in the field by Danny McCarthy, who was called in a short time, perhaps forgiving a cold start. The 29-year-old from Maryland plays for 10, one of the most attractive pairs of four on the course. Forward and up, and at least he’s here.
Speaking of former winners, Tiger Woods will be out in a few minutes. He took the Wanamaker Trophy the last time the PGA was delivered to the Southern Hills. That’s how the Guardian reported Major No. 13 at the time.
The first blow in the 2022 PGA Championship was made by 1991 champion John Daly. Next, the big man registered the first bird of the week, and by determining what it was worth, became the first leader of the tournament. He was soon joined at -1 by several others who soon began: Bob McIntyre of Oban, Manchunian Sam Horsfield, who is educated in the United States, PGA professionals Matthew Borchert and Michael Block, Texas veteran Ryan Palmer, 2009 champion and champion Yang Young. in anticipation of Xander Schaufele, who squealed with a short iron at 10 from 120 yards to three feet and put his bird in order. The second major this year is very close!
-1: Daly (4), Young (4), Palmer (3 *), McIntyre (3 *), Borchert (2), Block (2 *), Horsfield (1), Schaufele (1 *)
It’s unfortunate that Phil Mickelson won’t be in the Southern Hills to defend the title he so memorablely won last year on the island of Kiev, where he used the old PGA championship slogan, Glory’s Last Shot, to become the oldest major competition winner in 51 years. years and 11 months. It was a story forever. Did his ridiculous LIV-related machinations wash away and cast a stain on this strange story? Nah. It’s not perfect, of course, but in a couple of years / months, when it’s all over, it will be nothing more than a footnote, a historical curiosity. We will, of course, miss Lefty, but here we are. Forward!
Ahead is another week of historical wonders. Jordan Spit will only be the seventh man to win a career Grand Slam tournament if he adds the Wanamaker Trophy to a resume that already lists wins at the Masters, US Open and Open. Masters champion and world number one Scotty Scheffler may complete the second stage of the Grand Slam calendar tournament. Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka could join the likes of Byron Nelson and Siv as the five-time top winner; the pair could also join Gene Sarazen and Sam AIDS as three-time PGA champions. As for the Tiger … well, he couldn’t win the main number 16, and his second splash on one leg, right?
It’s up to Colin Morikova, John Ram, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama, Cam Smith, Victor Howland, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schaufele, DJ, Shane Lowry, Matt Fitzpatrick, Will Zalataris … well, we could be here day. In fact, we’ll be here all day, starting with the reportage, when the duel of McIlroy, Spit and Woods starts right after 2pm GMT. It will be a long time. LIV tour can make one. This is included!
