The PGA championship gets underway in a week’s time and the pundits of the game set sights on various players who have the tendency to win it this time along. This year the PGA Championship is to be played at the Valhalla. The course is one of the most renowned courses of the golfing world and many players have found it difficult to cope with it. Sergio Garcia is among such players who have come out saying that it is really difficult to cope with the course and he finds it difficult playing over in this course and score some good shots.
As PGA USA championship gets underway the round one saw Adam Scott currently world number 2 faced problems of in the first round as he lacked the edge of scoring it big. Currently a week ago he was dethroned from world number 1 position and this week he was finding problems in making things the way he wanted to. Currently he was at 71 at even par on a day which was perfect from scoring. After his dismal performance in the first round of the PGA championship the player was found heading directly for a practice session.
Rickie Fowler, who always dominates the headlines for his fashionable aura on the court is again back in news for his style statement but this time for a nobler reason- the 25 year old young golfer is all set to go retro at the US Open in the honor of his idol Stewart (Payne).
Rarely has Phil Mickelson drawn back from any sort of suspense, although it’s mostly restricted to his gameplay. This 4 times major champion had to withdraw from Texas Open during the previous week after he pulled a muscle badly on the right side. He has waited substantially to draw an end to the guessing game about whether or not he will play in the Master in the upcoming week.
Tiger Woods has said that there is every chance that he will be fit for the U.S. Open. Woods has been using crutches and wearing a protective boot on his left leg to ensure he will be fit.
But the 35-year-old remains doubtful for the Memorial Tournament that starts on 30 May in Dublin, Ohio, according to the Golf Tuition Cheadle website.
Woods said: “I feel that, in the next week or so, I can start practicing pain free. That’s where I’m at.”
To Woods’s relief doctors have not mentioned the possibility of further leg surgery.
