DJ shouldn’t have a bunker issue at this PGA
Several PGA professionals gathered around the first tee began clapping when Craig Stevens of Dallas hit the fairway on the first hole.
About that time, Tiger Woods was headed to the putting green to begin warming up for the final major of the year. Woods missed the past two majors while letting injuries in his left leg properly heal.
Minor damage from a mowing accident on the 17th green has been repaired, although the brown edges of the new sod are visible. It’s a tiny patch about 3 square yards, criss-crossed, looking like the runways of a small airport from 35,000 feet.

That may be true, but there’s that little matter of Whistling Straits. In one of the greatest mental blunders or _ depending on your point of view _ all-time rip jobs, Johnson lost the chance to win his first major championship at last year’s PGA Championship.
He had to take a two-shot penalty on the 72nd hole after grounding his club in a patch of dirt that only vaguely resembled a bunker.
Johnson still isn’t sure that’s what it was.
