(Christian Kolbert/dpa via AP) (Christian Kolbert)MUNICH — (AP) — The European tour banned golfers who competed in the Saudi-backed breakaway LIV series from three upcoming tournaments, including the Scottish Open, on Friday and fined them $120,000. All three of those events are co-sanctioned by the European tour and the PGA, which has suspended players who competed in LIV. There could be “further sanctions" if the players continue to compete in LIV without authorization, the European tour said. Some of the European tour’s best-known players were on course Friday at the BMW International Open, including major winners Louis Oosthuizen, Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer.wftv.com
John Daly delivers another ride in PGA's 1st round
Shaggy John Daly produced yet another wild ride around a PGA Championship.

Spieth among PGA favorites in quest for career Grand Slam
Of the five players to have won the Grand Slam, none waited more than three years for the final leg. Arnold Palmer's victory in the 1961 British Open left him, much like Spieth, needing only the PGA to finish it off, yet he'd play the tournament 34 times without winning. Byron Nelson and Raymond Floyd never won the British Open while Lee Trevino won every major (twice) except the Masters. It's a feeling that Rory McIlory, who will play with Spieth and Tiger Woods for the first two rounds at Southern Hills, knows too well. Spieth implemented a curious pre-shot rehearsal — almost mechanical in nature — designed to get into the proper position at the right tempo.wftv.com

Nominations for the 94th Academy Awards will be announced Feb. 8. A full list of the PGA Awards nominees is available at: https://www.producersguild.org/.wftv.com

(AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)AUGUSTA, Ga. – Nothing ever comes easily for Dustin Johnson in the majors, except for when he slipped his arms through that Masters green jacket Sunday.

No one had a better finish than defending champion Tiger Woods, but only after the five-time Masters champion posted the highest score of his career — three balls in Rae's Creek for a 10 on the par-3 12th hole.
