Almost man Fowler grabs early PGA Championship lead

Bob Sowards

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more".

If he contends again at Bellerive, much less wins his fifth PGA Championship, he could take all the drama out of his selection.

"This is something that started two years ago, where we all came to the conclusion that our current headquarters, those current buildings, although they're in a wonderful part of the country, just weren't getting - not getting it done for us", said Bevacqua, who is moving to a new role at NBC Sports overseeing multiple properties, including Golf Channel.

"I was scripted to wear a dark blue shirt, so luckily I had a version of yellowish and I'm happy (I) could support Jarrod", Fowler said. Paulina's mother, Janet, was born in the St. Louis suburb of Bridgeton.

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", Woods said. "As I said last week, I'm trending". I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted.

'If it happens or doesn't happen through the rest of this calendar year, I'm working in the right direction, I'm doing the right things and if you get yourself in position enough, the bounces will go your way'.

The championship favourite is Dustin Johnson, while the three previous major winners this year will all play together.

After firing a six-under 64 on Sunday to finish tied for third at the Bridgestone, DJ has now tallied an astounding two wins and four Top-5's in his last five starts, with the only exception being a missed cut at the Open Championship.

If nothing else, Johnson pointed out Tuesday that he'll have plenty of extended family in the crowd.

"It's really fun", Spieth said, "when you get a chance to play in front of family".

Thomas Bjorn has withdrawn on the eve of the PGA Championship after an old back injury flared up, giving first alternate Kevin Streelman a spot in the field at Bellerive.

Tiger Woods wasn't going to waste his time lobbying USA captain Jim Furyk for one of the at-large spots on the Ryder Cup team that will head to France next month.

According to ESPN's panel, Thomas, McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas all have a shot to win.

Justin Thomas won at the PGA to go to four wins and ultimately won the FedExCup after a five-win season making him the easy choice.

Now, those who tried to get on the course at Bellerive are simply soaked.

Bellerive received more than an inch of rain on Tuesday, limiting practice time.
