PGA Championship Preview: Predicting a Winner at Bethpage Black

But this year the challenge is far greater, as the Tour revamped its schedule, moving the former fourth and final major of the year to second, behind the Masters.

PGA Tour: Byron Nelson Preview

This weekend the PGA Tour shifts to Dallas for the Byron Nelson. The tournament began in 1944 and was renamed in 1968 for the legendary five-time major championship winner.

Just like virtually any Pete Dye layout, TPC Louisiana is loaded [...]

PGA: Key Plays at RBC Heritage

Following the dramatic fifth Masters title and 15th major championship victory by Tiger Woods will prove an unenviable task.
