Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Contend For Golf’s Top Spot

Luke Donald must be hearing footsteps, as Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy try to overtake the Englishman and climb into first place in the world golf rankings.


Tiger Woods In Top 10 Of PGA Championship 2012 Leaderboard

Tiger Woods, noted for his enthusiasm for the sport of golf, took a while to get going at the 2012 PGA Championship in his first round on Thursday. But when he did, Woods put himself in the middle of a pack of golfers not far off the lead.

Woods shot a 3-under 69 at the Kiawah Island Ocean Course, good for a tie for ninth after his first round. He's a fair bit off the pace being set by Joost Luiten, but that's because it's a record-setting pace: Luiten is at 8-under through 14 holes.

Woods began his day on the 10th tee, and had three birdies and two bogeys in his first nine holes. But the third birdie came on the 18th hole, and Woods followed it with two straight birdies on the first and second holes, getting him to 3-under. He added both another birdie and another bogey before his round was done.

Woods' playing partners, Keegan Bradley and Martin Kaymer, had slightly more exciting days: Bradley, the 2011 PGA champion, shot a 4-under 68, while Kaymer, the 2010 PGA champion, misfired for a 7-over 79.

PGA Championship 2012: Tee Times And Groupings For Thursday

Golf won't be a part of the Olympics until 2016, but the fourth major of the year in the sport will steal a little bit of the 2012 Olympics shine from Thursday until Sunday, during which the 2012 PGA Championship will be contested at Kiawah Island.

Tiger Woods will look for his first major since 2008 after near-misses at The Masters and the British Open. He'll be paired with up-and-comers Keegan Bradley and Martin Kaymer, the 2011 and 2010 winners of the PGA Championship, respectively, over the first two days.

The event's traditional threesome of the year's first three major winners produces the high-wattage grouping of 2012 Masters champ Bubba Watson, 2012 U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and 2012 British Open winner Ernie Els for the first two rounds.

And in the group tailor-made for golf sadists, Hunter Mahan, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia will play as a threesome for the first 36 holes.

PGA Championship 2012: TV Schedule, Streaming, Live Updates And More

Golf's final major tournament, the PGA Championship, tees off Thursday at the Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, S.C.

Defending champion Keegan Bradely will not only look to defend the Wanamaker Trophy, but also win his second tournament in as many weeks after defeating Jim Furyk in dramatic fashion at last wekend's Bridgestone Invitational.

Thursday's first round begins at exactly 7:20 a.m. ET as Kelly Mitchum, D.A. Points, and Marcel Siem will show the rest of the golfers the way.

TNT will have live coverage from 1-7 p.m. ET and beginning at 8:30 a.m. you can stream coverage of marquee groups and par 3 holes at The Ocean Course by visiting

A course that looks like a links-style golf but doesn't quite play like one, golfers will be tested from start to finish of this tournament, which could provide U.S. Open-type scoring depending on weather conditions.

With 10 holes running right alongside the beautiful Atlantic Ocean coastline, windy and damp conditions are likely to cause problems for golfers, but elevated greens and paspalum grass means golfers will still have to hit high trajectory shots to stay in contention.
