Aaron Doster/USA TODAY Sports By: Geoff Shackelford | August 5, 2018 7:17 pm The 100th PGA Championship begins Thursday at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Mo. Defending champion Justin Thomas enters the final major tournament of 2018 riding a serious green wave, having won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational convincingly on Sunday.
The 2018 PGA Championship is here, and we have an event overflowing with storylines. Everything from a single season often seems to converge upon the PGA Championship as it is the last major of the season (this year for the last time), and multiple players, stories and themes come to a head there as the season hurtles for the FedEx Cup Playoffs and the Ryder Cup.
Tiger Woods makes his first World Golf Championships start in four years, getting one last tour of a Firestone Country Club venue where he’s won eight times but is hosting its final edition before the event moves south to Memphis.

Dustin Johnson’s FedExCup lead also figures to be on the line as the points race tightens near the top. Read More

The field for the RBC Canadian Open was released on Friday and it’s as deep and talented as it has been in some time. There are 12 of the top 50 ranked players in the world playing, headed up by world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

The Open Championship returns to Carnoustie for the eighth time this year as golf’s greatest tackle the most feared course on the rotation.
