Tiger, Scott And Bradley Teamed Up Together To Start The PGA Championship

Australia’s Adam Scott & 2011 PGA Championship champion Keegan Bradley will join four-time champion Tiger Woods on the 10th hole at Valhalla Country Club on Thursday at 8:04 a.m. ET.

From the 10th tee, Brooks Koepka, the defending winner, will take on world No. 9 Max Homa as well as three-time grand champion Jordan Spieth in an attempt to win the tournament again and record his fourth overall victory.

In addition to going for his first major victory since 2017, Spieth would complete his career Grand Slam with a victory at Valhalla. World No. 1 and two-time Masters winner Scottie Scheffler will compete in her maiden tournament as a parent.

He will tee off at 2:13 p.m. with two other major title winners, Wyndham Clark of the U.S. Open and Brian Harman of the Open. In the meantime, Rory McIlroy, fresh off consecutive victories on the PGA Tour, will tee off at 8:15 a.m. alongside Justin Rose & Dustin Johnson in an attempt to win a major for the first time since 2014 (at Valhalla, no less).


PGA Championship: Top 10 In The World


This week’s field of 16 LIV Golf League participants includes Johnson. Other notable members of LIV include Bryson DeChambeau (8:59 a.m.), 2023 Open Championship winner Cameron Smith (8:26 a.m.), two-time winner Jon Rahm (2:02 p.m.) performing alongwith Rickie Fowler, and 2021 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson (1:51 p.m.).

Justin Thomas, the 2022 PGA Championship winner and native of Louisville, will try to regain his major championship form at a familiar location as he tees off at 7:53 a.m. on the 10th tee alongside two players ranked in the top 10 in the world, Xander Schauffele and Ludvig Åberg of Sweden, who is competing in just his second major championship.

The 2024 PGA Championship will begin at 7:15 a.m. with the opening shot being struck by Michael Block, the PGA professional who tied for 15th in the previous year’s competition. The PGA Tour’s talks with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia have advanced.

Yet, Tiger Woods stated that there is still a “long way to go” in reconciling the divided sports industry. A day before Woods’ remarks, Jimmy Dunne, an independent director, announced his resignation from the policy board of the PGA Tour and stated that negotiations with the PIF had stalled.


It Is Dynamic And Continual


Less than a week has passed since Rory McIlroy informed reporters that he was uncomfortable returning to the board of policy because of disagreements with other player directors. PIF provides funding for the competing LIV Golf League.

It has over the past two years attracted a number of elite players from the PGA Tour, including Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, and other former major winners.

“Well, I believe we’re in the process of negotiating with PIF,” Woods stated on Tuesday at the PGA Championship venue, Valhalla Golf Club. It’s dynamic and continual.

It varies every day. Has anything progressed? Yes, but there is still so much work to be done for all of us in this process as the negotiation is still ongoing. Therefore, even though they might not be enormous steps, we are nonetheless making progress.

On August 1, Woods became the inaugural member of the powerful policy board after a number of the top players on the PGA organization wrote to commissioner Jay Monahan, requesting greater openness from the organization.
