Nightshift Sports: PGA Championship, Final Round

Final Round Coverage and News/Information Links

Context

There are four “major” championships in golf (The Masters, The U.S. Open, The (British) Open, and the PGA Championship) and the last one of 2018–The PGA– is going to be played this weekend at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri. Each of these four majors has its own personality–The Masters has decades of tradition and the familiarity that comes with conducting it, every year, on the same course. The U.S.Open is precisely that–it’s open to anyone who can qualify to get in. The British Open is revered because it’s played at the birthplace of golf in Scotland and at other courses in the U.K. and the PGA (Professional Golfers of America) because it is the professional golf world’s very own championship. One other thing separates the PGA from the other championships: in talks with media professionals who cover the event, their descriptions of it have been unanimous in praising the PGA for the way they conduct the event and the exceptional courtesy offered to those who report it. This is always refreshing to hear, but perhaps never more than now, when the media is always under attack from institutions and individuals who disagree with their news coverage.

This years tournament is being held at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. The course  was designed by the dean of  American golf course design, Robert Trent Jones (he did so many courses in the south there’s an entire “trail” of Robert Trent Jones courses that players can follow), totals 7,547 yards and will be challenging to the pros because of weather conditions. All of the big players on the tour at Bellerive–along with some club pros (the heart of the PGA membership is the local golf pro)–who qualified to play with the tour regulars and superstars. Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and the legendary Tiger Woods are all in the field.

The PGA Championship started Thursday morning and runs through Sunday, August 12th. Nightshift Sports will be covering this year’s tournament–it’s the 100th Anniversary of the PGA Championship.

Results

No one was going to catch Brooks Koepka yesterday, as the young pro finished the 100th Anniversary PGA  Championship with a four under par score of 66, posting a final tournament score of 16 under par.  Right behind: the legend. Tiger Woods shot the lowest final round in a major of his career with a  6 under par 64, to finish at 14 under for the tournament become the runner-up to Koepka. Adam Scott finished alone in third with a 72 hole total of 13 under par. Woods’ legendary final round charge did not faze Koepka, who now has three majors to his credit (two U.S. Opens and the PGA) at age 28; Brooks knows how to close and earlier this year he won the U.S.Open for the second time (he also won it in 2017). Check our direct live link to the PGA Championship Leaderboard to see the final results of the tournament, which will have a bearing on selection of players for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.

As always, we provide the resources  to add to your enjoyment of watching and following the last golf major of the year, with a series of links and sites  and articles that will keep you totally up to speed on the tournament and the day’s action.

Results

The PGA managed to complete the rain-delayed second round of the tournament and all of the third round yesterday, to get the last golf major of the year back on track. At the end of round three, Brooks Koepka was in the lead, at 12 under par, but some of golf’s top competitors were within four shots of the lead. Adam Scott was 10 under, and fan favorite Rickie Fowler, along with Jon Rahm and early leader Gary Woodford were in at nine under par.  Tiger Woods is 8 under for the tournament.  Dustin Johnson is at 5 under along with Ryder Cup ace Ian Poulter; Jordan Spieth is at 4 under.  Check our direct live link to the PGA Championship Leaderboard to stay up to date all day. Final results will have a bearing on selection of players for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.

Results

Day 2 of the PGA Championship  was called early due to weather conditions (rain and lightening). Tough weather was not unexpected at the Championship. When play was suspended Gary Woodward was still in the lead, at 10 under par after getting in a full second round. Right behind him was Kevin Kisner at nine under, Brooks Koepka at 8 under. and Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel, Thomas Pieters at minus 7. All of those player managed to finish their round. Rickie Fowler was also at seven under but did not get to complete his second round. Jordan Spieth is at three under as is Ian Poulter. Rory McIlroy is at two under.  Check our direct live link to the PGA Championship Leaderboard to stay up to date all day–a necessity today because of the rain delay.  Seventy players (plus ties) will make the cut.
