Volume Three Hundred Ninety-Nine

Aug. 11, 2014     By     Comments (0)

The 2014 PGA Championship might just have proven once and for all that there is compelling golf without Tiger.

Hittin' the LinksWell, that was fun! Great leaderboard, lots of intrigue, a little controversy, and a great finish in the dark, the PGA Championship was a great wrap to the year's majors. Let's hope the playoffs and Ryder Cup can keep the momentum going.

Here's some of the immediate reaction to the PGA Championship from the Twittersphere:

Now, let's hit the links.

Hole #1: Rory Wins Second Leg of Rory Slam
And his fourth major before the age of 26... Despite being two-over at one point, Rory rallied on the back to win his second PGA Championship by a stroke over Phil Mickelson. [Link]

Hole #2: Great Catch!
In addition to that great "miss" Rory had on #10, here's a fantastic save for the 19th hole. Hey, we all know some potent potable is going to be poured in the Wannamaker tonight. Jäger anyone?

Hole #3: U-S-A, U-S-A
Kristen Gillman defeated Canada's Brooke Mackenzie Henderson 2-up in the 36-hole final of the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship at Nassau Country Club in New York. [Link]

Hole #4: The LPGA Had an Event This Week, Too
Possibly lost in all the major hype, the Meijer LPGA Classic took place in Belmont, Michigan. Mirim Lee made birdie on the second playoff hole to beat Inbee Park. [Link]

Hole #5: Who Is That Guy?
For those of you who tuned in for Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship and wondered just who the heck this Bernd Weisberger was. Here you go. [Link]

Hole #6: Tiger Watch, 2014
The coverage of Tiger Woods' parking space and arrival for Wednesday practice round was a tad over the top...

Hole #7: Not Exactly "Small, Round, and Relatively Flat"

Hole #8: Is Rory the New Tiger?
With his second straight major and becoming the fourth player in history to win four majors before age 26, it's time to start asking, "What does this mean?" [Link]

Hole #9: Mmm, Tuna Melt
