The first leg of the Fed Ex Playoffs on the PGA Tour was just played at Bethpage in Farmingdale, New York.
The famed Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina is the home to this year’s PGA Championship. It also is the most difficult golf course in the country.
It is getting to be quite the familiar story.
Phil Mickelson is wearing two gloves and a watch as he hacked his way around an ugly first round at The Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Anne’s.

The U.S. Open will be played this week at The Olympic Club outside of San Francisco.
