All eyes will be on world no. 2 and Champion Golfer of the Year, Rory McIlroy

The top 100 players in the Official World Golf Ranking have all committed to play in the 96th PGA Championship, held at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, August 7-10, according to the PGA of America on Tuesday.

Texas Slammin’

Let’s start with Brian Harman, who began his final round at the Colonial one shot off the lead at -6.

Zach Johnson put on a short-game clinic at Kapalua’s Plantation Course to capture his third victory in four months on Monday at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Similar to what we saw at last month’s World Challenge, where he took down Tiger Woods in a playoff, Johnson’s precision with his wedges helped him on his way to a final-round, seven-under 66.

Dufner and Tiger might throw down this week

Dufner and Tiger might throw down this week

Jason Dufner, an Auburn alumni and diehard football fan, understandably really wants to watch the SEC Championship this Saturday between his alma mater and Missouri.

Problem is, he has a work conflict! — that’s right, Dufner is playing in this week’s Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, the exhibition event that Tiger Woods hosts every December with the proceeds benefiting his foundation.
