Quite an interesting day one of the PGA Championship.
They were all sweating like pigs in the heat and I could hardly stand to look at Davis Love III’s pants. He was so sweaty that his pants were soaked and turned see through. Thank goodness Phil Mickelson’s shirt wasn’t see through…
Angel Cabrera had a real fun 6th hole. The 6th is a par three with OB long left. He knocked his tee shot OB, then the next shot OB, then the next in the water, 3-putt and ended up with a 10!
John Daly has held the first round lead at some point, in two of the four majors this year. He played no practice round, just like when he won the 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick. His 67 (-3) has him in 2nd place. He’s just playing to have fun and not putting pressure on himself. That’s a good plan.
Graeme Storm (who?) is the leader at 65. I’d be lying if I said I knew anything about Graeme so go here for his details.
Oh yes I’d better put Tiger Woods name in here for the bots to chew on. Tiger is at +1 (71). Am I the only one that doesn’t buy this hype about Tiger on par 70’s versus par 72’s? Is he not as good of a golfer on par 70’s? Of course not. It’s just useless stats the media produces to create a story when there isn’t one.
