The tournament is slated to begin Thursday, but as of Wednesday...

Mickelson has eventful opening round

Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods aren't likely texting buddies, but if they were, Thursday night's electronic missive from Mickelson to the world No. 1 might go something like this: @ClaretJug13 to @TDub14Majors: Hey, sorry about the way your round finished today, slipping out of red numbers with that unfortunate double bogey. Don't worry, though. I know exactly how you...

Tiger Woods dodges autograph seekers at PGA Championship

Before his practice round on Tuesday, Tiger Woods headed towards some fans to sign some autographs and after they all pushed forward, he turned and left with a smile.

We had a little girl get crushed today, and she was just...

Mickelson still riding Open high

Phil Mickelson looks at himself differently these days. Sure, there's a bit of uncertainty in the grogginess of morning, when he wakes up wondering if that claret jug really belongs to him for a whole year.

Adam Scott, Jim Furyk Lead PGA Championship While Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Struggle at Oak Hill

Scott finally became a major champion...

What Tiger was thinking during first round

Tiger Woods hates bogeys. All golfers do (well, some weekend hackers probably would love to bogey every hole). So it's safe to say he probably loathes double bogeys. That's exactly how he finished his first round Thursday as he posted an ugly six on the par-4 9th hole (he started on the back nine) to finish with a 1-over 71 . The heavy favorite coming into the 2013 PGA...
