Question of the Day
After fellow Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal wrapped up whatever bet they had going at the 18th hole, Jimenez handed some money to his friend. Larrazabal proudly held up one of the bills for the fans in the stands.
As he signed autographs, Larrazabal wouldn’t say how much he took off Jimenez. But he patted his heart and said, “It’s always a pleasure to beat Miguel. It’s not easy.”
TOP RANK: The PGA Championship stands to be the third-strongest field since the world ranking began in 1986. The tournament has 99 of the top 100 players in the world this week, matching the record set last year at Kiawah Island.
The difference in strength is the player missing this year _ Louis Oosthuizen at No. 16 _ was higher ranked that the one player missing last year, Ben Crane.
The strongest field was in 2002 at Hazeltine. Even though it had only 98 of the top 100, those two players were toward the bottom of the ranking. The PGA Championship had the top 96 players in the world that week.
As for the other majors this year, the British Open had 89 of the top 100 players. The U.S. Open, which offers the most spots through qualifying, had 73 of the top 100. The Masters had 63 out of the top 100 in the world. Then again, the Masters only had a 94-man field.
FEELING LIKE HE BELONGS: As the youngest winner on the PGA Tour in 82 years, it’s clear that 20-year-old Jordan Spieth is not intimidated by the big names on the PGA Tour.
That might just be the biggest key to his early success.
“You have to think of them as your peers,” said Spieth, who won the John Deere Classic last month while still 19. “When you’re out on the course and looking up to anybody, saying `Wow, that’s so and so,’ that’s when you get into trouble.
“In order to get where I want to go, I’m going to have to beat them on a regular basis.”
