The tiger is in the house

All eyes are on Woods again this week (when aren’t they?), and he leaves in less than 30 minutes…

Big start for Luke Donald

It’s been 11 years since the Englishman finished in the top 10 at a major championship, but it’s a birdie in 1 today. He is at the top of the very first ranking.

Look who arrived…

Rory McIlroy tees off in just under an hour, and he’s in the Valhalla booth doing some last-minute practice ahead of the first round…

LATEST NEWS: Delayed playback

This comes straight from PGA Championship officials:

“Morning tee times for the first round of the 2024 PGA Championship are delayed by 10 minutes due to fog.”

So that’s Michael Block, Luke Donald and Shaun Michael leaving now at 7:25am local time.

Rory McIlroy the last

Before the golf begins, it would be remiss of us not to mention the story that made headlines leading up to this tournament: Rory McIlroy’s divorce from his wife Erica Stoll.

Although the media were warned not to question McIlroy on the subject, it’s fair to say it came as a huge shock – with the news breaking just three days after the match started this morning.

McIlroy filed divorce papers in Florida on Monday and put on a brave face
