Koepka's biggest challenge is history in bid for 3 in a row
Woods won majors at a faster clip than anyone. That's why the biggest challenge facing Brooks Koepka as he goes for a third straight PGA Championship this week at the TPC Harding Park in San Francisco is more about history than his troublesome left knee and recent form. Now it's about Walter Hagen, who won the PGA Championship four straight times (1924-27) when it was match play. For someone with this much history on the line, Koepka still has managed to avoid the spotlight in the weeks leading into the PGA Championship. He has gone back-to-back in the Masters and British Open, and twice in the PGA Championship.
Nominee to be CIA watchdog says he'll stand up to Trump
Thomson's nomination as CIA inspector general comes as Trump is attacking the inspector general and whistleblower system. Trump has fired or replaced inspectors general across the federal government in recent months, including the former watchdogs for the intelligence community and State Department. "If I was fired for doing my job in a lawful way, in an appropriate way, then I would be fired,'' Thomson said. The White House Counsel's office interviewed him before his nomination, but he did not speak personally with Trump, Thomson said. "I never perceived any kind of loyalty test at all with regard to the president,'' Thomson said.
