Maybe it’s the long day, lack of sleep and/or the humidity, but while there are so many things to talk about after the first round of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, I’m a bit uninspired. Yet clearly I am inspired enough to wait for it to kick in at midnight and take the time to write this post when all I want to do is zone out to a new series on Netflix and pass out. But here we are.

The first round of the PGA Championship at the new and — well, um, arguably — “improved” Quail Hollow Club was relatively predictable, though everyone was curious to see how the PGA would set up the course and how it would play (before they spoke out too strongly on the changes and new holes, particularly the green at the par-3 4th). Overall, it was vintage Thursday at the PGA: Predictable.

And if you’ve already listened to the latest episode of the the WUP pod with Coach Mike Small and Kevin Na, then you know exactly what I mean. I’m clearly biased and this is yet another shameless attempt to plug my own “product,” but obviously, I highly recommend you SUBSCRIBE, download it and listen to it, like, ASAP, or now.

World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play - Round One
Well, it was a pretty exciting first day of the Match Play Championship at Austin Country Club (which looks like a cool course and makes it more annoying that I had to cancel my trip at the last minute). I have to say that it seems like the new round robin format is a significant improvement from the previous straight-up bracket.

Unfortunately, I can’t provide the intensive coverage that I would like to, but PGATour.com has a good round-up of all the matches.

Here’s a summary of some of the European players’ matches, courtesy of EuropeanTour.com:

Wozza in Augusta to support Rory

Wozza is in Augusta this week cheering on Rory

Caroline Wozniacki is spending the week in Augusta to support her boyfriend Rory McIlroy. On Sunday evening, she revealed to fellow Dane Thorbjorn Oleson, who is making his Masters debut, on Twitter that she would be caddying for McIlroy in Wednesday’s Par 3 Contest.

Strangely, she has since deleted her reply to Oleson, but the tweet still appears in the conversation thread via Oleson’s account. Here’s a screenshot:
