Most of the 156 golfers at the P-G-A Championship will be on hand today for practice rounds. It’s the third time in 12 years that the season’s final major is at Whistling Straits at Haven, near Sheboygan.
The first two events at Whistling Straits ended in playoffs. Vijay Singh won a three-way showdown in 2004. Germany’s Martin Kaymer won the 2010 crown after Dustin Johnson blew the title with a bunker shot violation on the final hole. Spectators will sit over that bunker this year.
The P-G-A says no more tickets will be sold for Saturday’s and Sunday’s rounds.
22-year-old Jordan Spieth will try to become the first golfer to win all three U-S majors in the same year. Spieth shot a 4-under-par 66 yesterday at the Bridgestone Invitational, just before taking off for Whistling Straits.
PGA Championship Withdrawal
Graham DeLaet has withdrawn from the 2015 PGA Championship due to injury. Sean O’Hair of Windermere, Florida, will take his spot in the field.
