It often amazes me how fast the last 3 majors of the year fall in succession to each other. In terms of time, the gap between the The Masters and the The U.S. Open is 2 full months, but then when the British Open comes, that particular gap is a matter of 1 month. The gap for the last 3 majors is 1 month.
Oh, but what an exciting time it is.
This year’s PGA Championship is held at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ.
The biggest story should be the most obvious. Tiger Woods. Having gone 1st – 2nd – 1st in the last 3 majors, all eyes are on him to see whether he can add to his already impressive 2005 resume.
I personally would like to see John Daly and Fred Couples play well. Both of those players have always had my respect.
Sean O’Hair is another player who has gained my respect. After having a VERY rocky relationship with his father in his junior years, he has been able to overcome those heated times to not only become a husband and father, but also on his way to becoming Rookie of the Year. I would love to see Sean play VERY well in this tournament. It’s very hard to look at his history and hear his story and not have respect for him.
The Baltusrol Golf Club will be playing nearly 7,400 yards. There will be plenty of long irons into par 4’s this week.
This should be a very exciting PGA Championship and let’s see if Tiger can win this week, and then win the Master’s again in 2006 to complete the same slam he accomplished in 2002.
