College of Sports Media Game of the Night:

Today marks the first round of the last major of the year in the PGA and more importantly the last chance Tiger Woods has this season to inch closer to Jack Nicklaus record 18 majors. The PGA Championship kicks off today at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chikasa Minnesota and it’s being billed as the longest course in major championship history stretching 7674 yards. It’s also the first track to have three par fives measuring more then six hundred yards. It seems like nowadays every tournament, especially majors, is all about Tiger and rightfully so. Since missing the cut in a major for only the second time in his career at the British Open Eldrick has been on fire. He started off by winning the Buick Open and followed that up with a seventh win at WGC-Firestone. Over his last eight rounds on Tour, Woods is an astonishing 32 under par. You have to believe the man is due.

Obviously there are other golfers playing in the tournament who have a shot at winning this major as well. A long course like Hazeltine plays right into the strengths of Phil Mickelson. Lefty has been at the top of the tour when it comes to driving average and his touch around the greens may be enough to win his fourth major. With a strong showing at last weeks tournament Padraig Harrington may be peeking at the right time. He did win this major last season. You also cannot forget about Stewart Cink. Since winning the claret jug Cink has been playing with a lot more confidence. Or the trend of first year winners can continue at this season’s majors: Angel Cabrera (first green jacket) won at Augusta, Lucas Glover claimed the US Open and Cink of course outlasted Tom Watson at Turnberry. Remember this is also a tournament that Rich Beem won back in 2002 for his one and only PGA tournament win.
