Matthew Wolff made a 26-foot putt from the fringe for an eagle on the final hole to win the 3M Open at 21 under par on Sunday, beating Collin Morikawa and Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke in a tense finish to the first-time PGA Tour event.
The big-bopping hitter with the buttery soft touch now has three majors to his name
Brooks Koepka understood the feel-good story, the one everyone wanted. On Sunday at the PGA Championship, he just wasn't going to allow it to happen.
This PGA Championship opens with more questions than your average major championship. Of course, as usual, they begin with Tiger Woods and whether his game -- and his body -- are ready for the year's last major championship. But he's not alone. Can Jordan Spieth finish off the career Grand Slam? Will soggy Bellerive hold up under hot conditions? At 6:55 a.m. local time Thursday morning, we start getting answers.
Years ago Tour players and club pros battled for the soul of the PGA of America. It went from ugly to nuclear. Much changed after the 1968 PGA Championship.
Established stars and first-timers have won the PGA Championship. So it only makes sense that our experts ranged from proven names to players ready to take home that first major.
All you need to know about the 2018 edition of the PGA Championship, including day-by-day results and analysis from Bellerive.

Justin Thomas came of age on the Green Mile. The Wanamaker Trophy was waiting for him, and what a story would be. A third-generation PGA member. A face in the new wave of golf, only three months older than close pal Jordan Spieth. The hard-luck story from the U.S. Open, who had stormed into contention with a 63 on Saturday at Erin Hills, and faded away just as quickly with a 75 on Sunday.
Their relationship goes back more than a decade, which says something about two guys who are just 24 years old. They battled as junior golfers, and at rival colleges, and each could hold their share of bragging rights. But Jordan Spieth matured a bit more quickly as a pro than Justin Thomas, who always praised his good buddy Spieth's success through an amazing early run on the PGA Tour. That included last month's Open Championship title at Royal Birkdale as well as through all the hype Spieth was getting coming into the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.
Phil Mickelson is well below the projected cut at the PGA Championship, meaning he'll miss his second cut at a major championship this season for a second straight year.
Brooks Koepka and Ricky Fowler are in contention after Round 1 at Quail Hollow
Trying to get a career slam, Jordan Spieth opened the PGA Championship with a round of 1-over 72.
Golf galleries are regarded as some of the most knowledgeable, educated fanbases in sports. After interacting with them at Quail Hollow, I'm not so sure anymore. I went out to the driving range on Wednesday to get a feel of who the crowd would be pulling for this week: Jordan Spieth or Rory McIlroy. Yes, that's a batty, local-weatherman-at-the-bake-sale pitch, but against the suffocating late-afternoon Carolina humidity, it made sense at the time. However, in talking with a dozen visitors, a different narrative became quickly apparent: When asked if Spieth's Grand Slam pursuit had any effect on their rooting interest, most had no idea the Texan was chasing history.
William McGirt couldn't hit a golf ball last week. After withdrawing from the RBC Canadian Open, the 38-year-old Fairmont native was in a position where he "couldn't get in a putting stance either" because of back pain. But this week, all systems are go as he prepares for the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. "My back is feeling much better," McGirt told The Robesonian on Tuesday. "I got a good bit of treatment on it last week and I am close to 100 percent again. The swing is feeling good and so is the putter."
No fewer than eight parties are affected by the PGA Championship's move to May starting in 2019. What exactly are the implications of such a major decision?
