08/03/2013

The PGA Championship is only a week away, with golf’s last shot for glory already here. It is a bit depressing as always, but I am choosing to look at this major with optimism of a fantastic slate of 2013 golf.

The Masters ended in epic fashion with the ‘C’Mon Aussie’ battle cry for the ages, the U.S. Open Phil heartbreak and Justin Rose triumph along with Phil’s redemption at Muirfield. I’m thankful for what we’ve had, but sad it is about to leave. One more week of great golf – hopefully.

Here is the slate of PGA Championship TV Times for the tournament next week, which starts on Thursday, August 8th:

As is tradition, the 3 major champions thus far will be paired together, as Phil, Justin and Adam tee off at 1:45 PM on Thursday. Other groups I like are the 7:45 Tee #10 time Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Dufner and Steve Stricker along with the group right after of Serigo, Kuch and Rickie. Tiger Woods plays with Keegan Bradley and their 2012 Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III.

My juices get flowing come major championship time…. I hope yours are too.
