Course familiarity could give Tiger edge in upcoming majors

Course familiarity could give Tiger edge in upcoming majors

Bethpage Black surrendered only six sub-par scores in hosting two prior majors.

Woods limped over 72 regulation holes plus an 18-hole playoff and a sudden-death hole, then underwent left knee surgery two days later and didn't play against until February 2009.

You know, that's a great question because the only other time where I've taken four weeks off prior to major championships is going from the British Open to the PGA. It's not super deep, but it's just really thick, and you've just got to drive it straight. "But a little frustrated sometimes just because I've had quite a few chances". Stenson has always been one of the best in the game and could walk away with his second major. This was a move to ensure health for the remainder of the year and career, so it's hard to blame the guy for making the tough decision to bounce out of this tournament. "It's not super deep, but it's just really thick".

The timing of my return could not have worked out any better as we've got the second major of the PGA Tour season, the PGA Championship this week at one of the best courses in the country, Bethpage Black.

The PGA of America gave Daly permission because he has a knee problem.

As for the play itself this week, let's not even try to sugarcoat it, it's going to be brutal!

The course is a par 70 (played as a par 71 when it hosted the Northern Trust twice) that stretches out 7,432 yards and makes its third appearance as the host of a major championship.

John Daly hits his tee shot on the second hole during the first round of the Ally Challenge presented by McLaren at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club on September 14, 2018 in Grand Blanc, Michigan.

Now, after taking time off, can he summon those aspects again at Bethpage Black at this week's PGA Championship? "I think you keep doing what you're supposed to do, you play good, you peak at the right times". What do you think is happening?

News 12's Geoff Bansen and Andrew Rappaport look ahead at what to expect on the course and in the forecast for the PGA Championship. That's a big stat, driving accuracy. "Length is definitely going to be a big factor this week".

The par-3s are no sleepers as they're all protected by strategically placed bunkers and slight elevation changes.

"The weather is supposed to warm up a little more and the rough won't be as thick so I'll get out tomorrow and see what it's like then, but I'll imagine it will play a bit shorter than it is now".

Perhaps unsurprisingly American broadcasters CBS are equally delighted, with veteran presenter Jim Nantz adding: "Who would have ever forecast that the PGA Championship would walk into year one of this coming on the heels of one of the greatest moments in the history of the sport?" It's painful as hell is all I can say.

As far as Tiger's reference to his 2008 U.S. Open win, where he walked the course on a broken leg and badly injured ACL, Daly sees no comparison.

Parnevik, who won the PGA Tour five times, issued a scathing rebuke of Woods' behaviour when his infidelities hit the headlines.

Judging by his words, the 43-year-old is in fine fettle as he prepares for his first tournament start since his Masters victory exactly one month ago. He's out of the field so I had to do some soul searching to find a replacement victor.

Despite the abundance of talent in the professional game, McLaughlin said Woods, who he first met when he was a 13-year-old kid from Southern California, was a one of a kind.
