The best players in the world showed up Thursday at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, and they did not disappoint.
Oak Hill has the requisite narrow fairways, bunkered approaches and rolling greens to make it a tough go. But softened by an overnight rain, it didn’t present the struggles of the previous three majors of the year. Almost 25 percent of the 157 players in the field posted scores below par.
This was supposed to be a match-play showdown between Tiger and Phil, who had been playing their best golf leading up to the event. As of now, they are both well behind the leaders.
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy reemerged from his funk, some lesser-known pros surged to the top, and two previous major winners took the lead.
Let’s take a look at the winners and losers at Oak Hill.
