PGA Championship’s Table of Birdies and Bogeys

PGA Championship’s Table of Birdies and Bogeys

The PGA Championship was held at the Ocean Course and here is a close look at who’s who on that Sunday’s golf event.

Rory McIlroy performed impressively well on this tournament just how he performed when he won the US Open at Congressional. His strikes and putting were remarkably sensible bringing himself back in line after collapsing at the Masters. Tiger Woods, on the other hand, fell short and wasted his opportunity for another major despite playing better on Sunday compared to his performance on the day before. Starting out so good with a 36-hole lead, Tiger’s third round was mostly unsuccessful.

Vijay Singh made it to the final group but this three-time major champion was unable to maintain his momentum. The 49-year-old golfer played the third round at four over and doing the same in the final round, scoring at a depressing 77 and finishing at T-36.

Ian Poulter did a good job hitting five greens and making five birdie putts through five holes. Whoa! Though he faded later, the Englishman added two more birdies on the back nine setting an example of how substantial he can be. His efforts paved way as he is considered to meet European Captain Jose Maria Olazabal in the upcoming Ryder Cup in fall.

Carl Pettersson got upset after being informed that he was penalized with two-strokes on the first hole but he didn’t let his emotions ruin the entire game and delivered back-to-back birdie shots right after. Though the shots weren’t enough to win the major, he made the highest finish with T-3 at one of the biggest golf events aside from winning the heart of a new fan like me.
