Suri, Streelman Tee It Up at PGA Championship

"As I said last week, I'm trending". "We are not the show, and that is our aim for every championship".

In his final PGA Championship news conference as CEO, Pete Bevacqua addressed possible a headquarters move to Frisco, Texas.

Bevacqua expressed sympathy for the current headquarters employees concerned about the PGA of America's future in Florida. So, the PGA began soliciting offers from around the country, and Frisco officials proposed a site that would include two, semi-public 18-hole courses. "We're just not there yet".

PGA Championship LIVE will have four featured groups each day, with two in the morning and then two in the afternoon.

Streelman has been a PGA Tour pro since 2008, winning twice on tour - the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship and the 2014 Travelers Championship. There are also four captain's picks up for grabs. I can just keep putting myself in position and learn from those experiences, good or bad, and try to use what I've learned.

That's because the tournament at Bellerive is the last points-paying event for the US team for the Ryder Cup, and a crucial opportunity for European players to impress captain Thomas Bjorn.

For a while, big events bolstered its reputation.

Last week at Firestone was the latest example of Fleetwood digging a hole in the third round. He shot 73-73 on the weekend to tie for 31st.

Lousy weather also accompanied the U.S. Senior Open in 2004, turning parking lots into mud puddles and dousing part of the second round.

The Englishman says it's nothing he worries about, but he has taken notice.

"I'm a little under the radar this year, and I don't mind it", Spieth acknowledged, "but at the same time, this tournament will always be circled until hopefully I win it one day".

Soon it was time for a walk down Tiger Woods Memory Lane, with Molinari being asked to reflect on caddying at the US Masters for his brother Edoardo, who happened to be playing in a group with Woods. Plans changed on Wednesday because of the rain.

Australian club pro Craig Hocknull finished at two-over with a 72, while bigger-name countryman Cameron Smith struggled during a 74. It's also the first Championship for Tiger Woods since 2015.

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.

The season before the battle was basically down to Dustin Johnson and Jason Day.
