Yes, I know it says 90th
It's PGA Championship Week!

The PGA Championship is always bittersweet, in my opinion.
It's sweet because it's a major championship but it's bitter because it marks the end of the major championship season, which means we're about to be on an eight month major championship hiatus. But I'll try not to be too much a Debbie Downer because I am excited for the 94th PGA Championship and I hope you are too!

Last chance for Tiger to be "back".
Look at the list of recent winners - LOTS of first timers and unknowns. I really want Tiger to be in the hunt on Sunday - we'll see.
i for one am really excited. the last 4 years the PGA Championship has shown some of the most compelling sport on television. Padraig battling with Sergio. Y.E. Yang taking down Tiger. Dustin Johnson's bunker debacle and Keegan worming his way into a play-off against Duffner.
Maybe its because I'm new to playing golf, and didn't watch too much in NZ (its monday there for the last round) but the US open has somethign special, Masters does, british does, but the PGA just doesn't seem too special to me, yet.
I guess we need a thriller to change my mind.
Tiger in the hunt will make it exciting I think... and some time to watch it :)
Wifes away, so I'll be home with the bubbles to watch.
This year I'm just as intrigued by the Ryder cup points situation. There's a few scenarios where Phil gets knocked out of 8th place and probably anybody in the 9-25 positions gets in by winning the tournament. Should be some good side drama.
I like the part where they play golf.
i agree with the bitter sweet feeling... however, even if a major, i dont consider it as intense, loved and hyperd up as the masters, US Open and Open championship... still like watching them though! LOL

I have to agree with GPickin and Virtuaframax; under normal circumstances, the PGA doesn't capture my imagination as much as the other three. But this year is different for two reasons:
(1) The PGA is at Kiawah Island - a fiendishly difficult course that will immediately turn into a pressure-cooker for most players.
(2) The course and the weather are likely cause a violent shake-up in the Ryder Cup point-standings. It will be fascinating to see who can hold it together.
I have no love for the "final major of the season." It just seem to be anything special to me. The Masters is at Augusta, the US Open is the "true test of golf" and considered the most democratic of the majors, the Open Championship is the oldest. The PGA just doesn't have any real kick, at least in my opinion. Maybe if they were to roll is back and make it match play... I don't know. It just doesn't do anything for me. It's about equal to the Player's in my mind.
