    Two spectators and one golf writer should have seen this coming. Jon Rahm finished the 15th hole at Muirfield Village during a practice round for the Memorial. Walking to the next tee, two spectators approached for an autograph. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I'm sorry, I can't," Rahm replied. "I'm in contact tracing." That was a response never heard in the year since golf returned from its pause because of the pandemic, peculiar enough to wonder if that was the perfect answer to avoid having to stop to sign. And then a reminder of that moment returned three days later. Rahm walked off the 18th green with a six-shot lead and a record-tying score for 54 holes. He was approached by two PGA Tour officials, and Rahm doubled over in disbelief. After getting tested for COVID-19 every day since arriving, his latest one came back positive and he had to withdraw. Golf began with no fans along the Pacific coast before going to some fans in Florida to a full house of (mostly American) fans at the...
    Tiger Woods admitted in a recent interview that it's unlikely he'll be as good as he once was following the Los Angeles car crash that left him with a devastating leg injury. Woods, who hasn’t played in a tournament since he teamed up with his son for the 2020 PNC Championship, told Golf Digest in an interview published Monday he’ll be fine if he doesn’t compete with some of the best on the PGA Tour again.

Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that," Woods told Golf Digest. "You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it...
    The LPGA Tour decides its player of the year based strictly on points. If those were style points, Nelly Korda would be tough to beat. Korda’s three LPGA victories this year include her first major, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club, which elevated the 23-year-old American to No. 1 in the world. Throw in a gold medal from the Tokyo Olympics, and she has put together the most memorable year in women’s golf. But the best year? Jin Young Ko would like a word. Coming off a six-week break after a disappointing Olympics, during which Ko worked with her old coach in South Korea and found a putter she likes, she has won three of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour and was runner-up in the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Her victory in the BMW Ladies Championship not only returned her to No. 1 in the world, Ko took over the lead in the Race to the CME Globe, both positions previously belonging to Korda. And she now has a 15-point lead over Korda with two...

Here's a breakdown of the event with all odds from BetMGM. The course Summit is a par-72, Tom Fazio-designed course that measures over 7,400 yards.

    Patrick Cantlay was voted PGA Tour player of the year on the strength of his four victories, including a one-shot advantage at East Lake that made him the FedEx Cup champion. Tuesday's announcement was another big step for Cantlay, a 29-year-old Californian who went from being the No. 1 amateur in the world to being unable to play for some three years because of a career-threatening back injury. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Now he has the Jack Nicklaus Award after a big finish to his best season. Cantlay won four times this season, capped off by the FedEx Cup. No one else won more than twice. The PGA Tour does not release vote totals or how many players even voted. It presumably was a tight race between Cantlay and Jon Rahm, the No. 1 player in the world. Rahm finished one shot behind Cantlay at the Tour Championship, where the Spaniard started the tournament four shots behind. He picked up his first major this year at the U.S. Open with a birdie-birdie finish. Rahm also had...
    (CNN)US golfer Billy Horschel won the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday, becoming just the second American player to win the famous event. The 34-year-old shot a brilliant seven-under final round 65 to finish on 19-under and a shot ahead of Jamie Donaldson, Laurie Canter and Kiradech Aphibarnrat at Wentworth Golf Club. Playing in the penultimate group, Horschel's birdie on the 18th hole gave him the marginal lead over Canter who was in the final pairing. But England's Canter could only finish with a par on the last hole, handing Horschel the famous trophy, and putting his name alongside one of golf's greatest players, Arnold Palmer.Palmer, widely considered one of the sport's most influential players, is the only other American to win the event, doing so in 1975 at Royal St George's.

    OWING MILLS, Md. (AP) — The PGA Tour is still planning on one event for its Asia Swing this fall. Players were notified last week the Zozo Championship outside Tokyo was still on the schedule, and they faced a deadline for visa applications in case they decide to go. But that will be the only stop, assuming it happens. Two people aware of the decision say the HSBC Champions in Shanghai has been canceled. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the tour hasn’t announced the decision. The PGA Tour lost its Asia Swing to the COVID-19 pandemic last year. The HSBC Champions, a World Golf Championships event since 2009, was canceled. The CJ Cup in South Korea moved to Shadow Creek north of Las Vegas, while the Zozo Championship moved to Sherwood Country Club in Thousands Oaks, California. The CJ Cup already has announced it is returning to Las Vegas, this time at the prestigious Summit Club. Japan-based Zozo does not have a U.S. presence, and it was a big step for the company to hold its tournament in...
    Collin Morikawa narrowly defeated Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm and Louis Oosthuizen to win the 2021 Open Championship on Sunday. It was Morikawa’s second major victory of his career. He won the PGA Championship in 2020. He is the second player to win The Open Championship and PGA Championship before turning 25, according to ESPN Stats & Info. He joined Tiger Woods in hitting the milestone. It was the first time he played at the event, much like it was his first time playing the PGA Championship when he won the tournament last year.

Sports Phil Mickelson is still enjoying his win at the PGA Championship. (Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire/Getty Images) He posted a 3-over 73 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, and entered Friday both a full 10 shots outside the leaders and outside the projected cut line. Lefty, though, was completely unbothered by his performance. He’s still basking in the glow of last week’s historic finish in South Carolina. “Yeah, I didn’t play well,” Mickelson said after his round. “But I won the PGA, so…” Mickelson picked up his 45th career PGA Tour win and sixth major victory last week at the PGA Championship.

It was Mickelson's second time winning the Wannamaker Trophy, the sixth major victory of his career, and his first major win since the 2013 Open Championship. Mickelson earned just north of $2 million for his play — not bad for four days' work. For a player of Mickelson's wealth and stature, the money may not have been the most important prize. Mickelson also earned automatic invites to the other three majors on the golf calendar for the next five years, although he only needed the US Open. Mickelson already has lifetime...

    The films that have the absolute worst endings Here’s What the US Minimum Wage Was the Year You Were Born As he marched down the 18th fairway on Sunday, en route to an historic PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson was mobbed by a mass of maskless golf fans. They shouted encouragement, patted him on the back and just lived up a moment to savor. If there were any safety worries, they centered Phil getting knocked over, not breathed on. “It was slightly unnerving,” said Mickelson, who was 200-to-1 to win at Kiawah Island, South Carolina, “but exceptionally awesome.” About the same time, some 750 miles north, some 15,047 New York Knick fans crowded into Madison Square Garden where they would scream and stomp and bask in the ending of an eight-season playoff drought. By the end, their greatest concern wasn’t contracting a virus, but Atlanta star Trae Young, who scored 32 points while playfully taunting the crowd. “It was amazing in here,” said Knicks guard R.J. Barrett. It was. It really was. On March 11, 2020, the NBA pulled the...

When he got to 10-under Saturday after making his fifth birdie of the day without a bogey and walked off the 10th green with a five-shot lead in the third round of the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course, you didn’t think Mickelson would get through his entire round without some sort of car wreck, did you? As it turned out, he did not. Credit Mickelson for surviving his wobbly moments — a sloppy bogey on No. 12 and a double-bogey thanks to a snap-hooked drive into a lagoon on No. 13 — for getting back to the barn at 7-under and...

As he prepared to hit his approach shot on the fourth hole Saturday at Kiawah Island during the third round of the PGA Championship, Mickelson stepped away from the ball and appeared bothered. The microphones picked him up saying: "Can you please move that drone from my flight? Not only is it annoying, but it's gonna hit it." He wasn't joking.

    Rickie Fowler. AP Photo/John Raoux Rickie Fowler played well the first two days to comfortably make the cut at the PGA Championship. Fowler said that his practice rounds with Michael Jordan were a great benefit. "Playing against M.J. is as good as it gets to prep," Fowler said. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Rickie Fowler has found a bit of form this weekend at the PGA Championship. During a tough season that saw him miss out on qualifying for the Masters for the first time since 2010, Fowler delivered a solid round on Thursday and ground out another good effort on Friday to make the cut with comfort at what has so far been a brutal PGA Championship. After his round on Thursday, Fowler credited his play to the preparation he put in ahead of the tournament, specifically, practicing with Michael Jordan. "Playing against M.J. is as good as it gets to prep," Fowler said. Fowler has been a guest at Jordan's exclusive course, Grove XXIII, several times and gave the course the nickname "Slaughterhouse 23"...
    ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — There will be a lot of junior golfers in Alameda riveted to the television coverage of the PGA Championship Saturday as their teaching pro Brad Marek battles it out with the game’s biggest stars on the Kiawah Island course. Marek entered weekend play 2-over par and tied for 32nd — just one of two non-touring pros to make the cut at the major. “To make the cut on this golf course is pretty much a dream come true,” Marek said after Friday’s round of play. Marek runs his own junior golf academy out of Alameda’s Corica Park for young players who have aspirations of competing at the collegiate level. On Friday, he started on the back nine and ended his day by holing a 35-foot birdie putt at No. 9. “It was getting really dark, and I was just trying to get it out there and just dribble it down the hill so I had a kick-in,” he said told Golf Week. “I still can’t believe that thing went in.” Even before he teed off, Marek...
    Phil Mickelson surprised everyone by capturing the lead with Louis Oosthuizen. But there are some other golfers who could steal Lefty’s thunder. If you were a bit shocked tuning into coverage on Friday morning and seeing a familiar name at the top, you weren’t the only one. I had to do a double take when I saw 50-year-old Phil Mickelson sitting above younger compatriots Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Corey Connors and Hideki Matsuyama. Were they showing the senior tour instead? Phil’s zen day of golfMickelson began Friday in the lead (starting out early), and ended almost the same, sharing the top spot. Phil looked slick in shades and frankly just calm, cool, and collected, knocking out five sparkling birdies on the front nine, and adding one more on the back. The five-time major winner attributed his composure to meditation, which he plans to employ as he progresses further at Kiawah. The question in everyone’s minds will be if he can keep up the consistency for the next two days, which has been his issue as of late. Phil Mickelson shares...
    The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina, is the site of this year’s PGA Championship, and it has presented some "wild" challenges for golfers.  Cameron Tringale’s sixth hole attempt during the second round on Friday was interrupted when a small alligator emerged for a stroll across the green.  PGA CHAMPIONSHIP: ‘HIT IT LONG OR IT WILL BE A TOUGH WEEK’  That spotting wasn’t the first of the tournament.  Jason Scrivener’s second shot on the sixth hole Thursday was already challenging enough, having to play it from the sand, but just behind him was another alligator.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Scrivener didn’t seem to notice but announcers did. The creatures were spotted around the course throughout the tournament and golfers are sure to see them throughout the weekend.  According to the Town of Kiawah Island, there are close to 700 animals living on the island and 1,400 permanent residents who "live, work, and recreate in close contact with alligators everyday."  CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Louis Oosthuizen bogeyed the 18th hole Friday to...

Like many of the best roller coasters in the world, it’s a ride-at-your-own-risk deal. Whiplash is always a possibility, and it can be scary not only for children, but also for adults. Through 36 holes, Mickelson, who’s 26 days away from his 51st birthday, has put a scare into the competition at the 103rd PGA Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course after rounds of 70 and 69 have him at 5-under and tied for the lead with Louis Oosthuizen.

    (CNN)Y.E. Yang, the man who overcame a two-shot deficit in 2009 to beat Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship, has been disqualified from this year's edition of the major. The South Korean golfer was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard following the second round on Friday of the 103rd PGA Championship at The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island Resort, in South Carolina, according to a press release from the tour.

    Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images Less than one month away from his 51st birthday, Phil Mickelson is chasing history at the PGA Championship. Mickelson walked off Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course in South Carolina after a second round that saw him take the clubhouse lead at 5 under through 36 holes. A major championship at the age of 50 would be an incredible feat for Lefty, but just leading after two rounds would be a significant accomplishment. Fred Couples was the last player 50 years or older to lead a major championship through two rounds, doing so at the 2012 Masters. If Mickelson completes the difficult task and wins the tournament, he’ll become the oldest player to win a major championship in PGA history. That honor is currently held by Julius Boros, who was 48 when he won the 1968 PGA Championship. A five-time major champion, Mickelson won the PGA in 2005, with his last major victory coming at the 2013 Open Championship. Odds are stacked against the 50-year-old as he attempts to grab his sixth major championship, while ranked 115th...
    Matthew Fitzpatrick plays his second shot at the 18th hole of the PGA Championship. Stacy Revere/Getty Images The 18th tee box at the PGA Championship was moved up 30 yards before the start of the tournament. The move brought the grandstands that line the fairway into play and has spectacularly backfired. Players have realized that the easiest way to attack the hole is to hit the ball right at the fans. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 18th tee box at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course presents a spectacular challenge. At the 2021 PGA Championship, the hole is set to serve as the finish line to golf's second major of the year. However, a change made just before the start of the tournament has created a new problem: players are hitting their balls straight at fans. Ahead of the tournament, the 18th hole was playing extremely difficult, with headwinds making the already long Par 4 play even longer. During practice rounds, players hit woods and hybrids off the fairway to reach the green in two shots. Even...
    50-year-old Phil Mickelson, without a top-10 in a major since 2016, takes the lead after his second round at the PGA Championship A lot of fun. That’s how Phil Mickelson is describing his first two rounds this week at the PGA Championship. But a major championship, complete with the returning galleries that are firmly in his corner, is bringing out the best in Mickelson. He’s playing like a five-time major champion, not someone preparing to go play on the Champions Tour. Mickelson ranks 175th in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green this season. He’s fifth so far this week. Off the tee, he ranks 193rd for the year but 12th at Kiawah Island. He gives most of the credit to his brother/caddie, Tim. “I’ve driven it well, but I think the thing I’ve done the best is my brother Tim and I have done a really good job of judging the wind,” he said. “Judging the flight and picking clubs with the right flight to get the right distance. And so we’ve hit a lot of iron shots pin high.” His...

Mickelson, whose 51st birthday is less than a month away (June 16), completed a remarkable first two days on the daunting Ocean Course, where the wind has consistently been blowing some 20 miles per hour off the Atlantic Ocean and wreaking havoc for some of the world’s best players. Playing in the morning wave of tee times Friday, Mickelson shot a 3-under-par 69 to get to 5-under through 36 holes. At the time he completed his round, he was one shot behind Branden Grace, who’d gotten to 6-under par. But Grace lost three shots on his final two holes with a double bogey on 17 and a bogey on 18, which left Mickelson with a two-shot lead as he left the course for...
    Professional golfer Sebastian Munoz could have safely described his game as 'trash' on Thursday and he wouldn't be speaking figuratively. Munoz knocked his tee shot into a garbage bag on the 474-yard 18th hole during the opening round of the PGA Championship in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. The ball bounced along the grandstand before falling neatly into the rubbish, igniting a round of cheers from the gallery.  'Do I have to get it?' Munoz was heard asking a tournament official, who instructed him to do so.   Sebastian Munoz pulled his tee shot into a garbage bag along the grandstand on the 18th hole during the opening round of the PGA Championship in Kiawah Island, South Carolina Hole in one?!

    It’s rare that a golfer wishes for a mulligan after hitting a hole in one. But Colombian golfer Sebastian Munoz did during the first round of the 2021 PGA Championship Thursday afternoon. On the 18th hole at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course in South Carolina, Munoz sent his tee shot toward a crowd of spectators. Knowing the ball was nowhere near the fairway, Munoz was surprised to hear the crowd roar. But fans were only cheering with excitement because the ball landed in a nearby trash can. Munoz walked up to the garbage pail, confirming the ball it was his and asked, “Do I have to get it?!” The answer was yes. And after Munoz went dumpster diving, a fan was surprisingly eager to accept the ball as a souvenir, directly out of the trash. Although it doesn’t happen as frequently as a traditional hole in one, landing in a trash can is not without precedent. Just last year, Tiger Woods put a tee shot in the wastebasket at the 2020 Genesis Open. Because it’s a man-made object,...

But for a few instants, just before 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time, the great John Daly once again led the PGA Championship, wild pants and all.  Daly, who takes advantage every year of the lifetime exemption he gets for winning the PGA in 1991, as well he should, put his first shot of the 2021 PGA Championship wide of the fairway at Kiawah Island, and then his approach ended up in the sand around the green.  But then, a bit of the ol' Daly magic: © Provided by Yahoo! Sports (ESPN) That was enough to put Daly into a tie for first at -1. STOP THE COUNT!  Alas, it wouldn't last. Daly would go on to post double bogey-bogey numbers on the third and fourth holes, and that was that for his PGA Championship hopes. Still, it was nice for a moment. The man whose life has been...
    (CBS Miami) — And just like that it’s time for another major. The PGA Championship on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina follows the Masters by a little more than a month. It’s the next in a string of seven majors in a 12-month period. The stretch started with last year’s PGA Championship, which COVID pushed until August. And it will end with the this year’s Open Championship in July. The field for this PGA Championship doesn’t want for top talent, nor is it short of big storylines. Every one of the world’s top 25 players will be on hand, from Dustin Johnson to Cameron Smith.
