It was Steve Stricker who suggested that Jordan Speith and Patrick Reed were the best pairing combo for competing in the Four-ball format. Their performance was very good and they hoped to be chosen again for the following Friday’s competition.
The European Ryder Cup contender, Lee Westwood, confidently reported that his finish at number 15 at the USPGA will guarantee him a wildcard entry to the tournament.
While Lee Westwood from England has it lucky and confident, United States Tiger Woods has taken a hard hit where he told he was there to win, unfortunately actions proved otherwise.
At the end of the first round of the 96th USPGA, the gap was just nine holes, the favor being on Westwood’s side. Rory Mcllroy is undoubtedly the favorite for the season, finishing 7 holes ahead of Westwood.
