Dart hits McIlroy George Diaz Orlando Sentinel Got some darts? Might as well be throwing them to pick a winner in the PGA Championship. With his victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last weekend, Adam Scott became the 10th different winner in the last 10 PGA events. And with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods winless in that span, there's zero reason to trust their game over 72 holes. So, the envelope please: Rory McIlroy. He likes the weather hot and sticky, and that's just how it's going to be in Georgia this week.

Yes: PGA Championship Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune He showed us power. He showed us touch. The only winning trait Tiger Woods didn't have at Torrey Pines was patience. He got frustrated Monday when the tortoises in front of him caused his round to take nearly four hours. Four hours for 11 holes. Woods is impatient. He has not won a major since he limped to a playoff victory at the 2008 U.S. Open. Last year he teased us time and again. He won two weeks before the Masters.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- It was opening day of the PGA Championship, or, if you prefer, Round 1 of the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson battle at Medinah Country Club. The record will show that when it came time to play, the two competitors shook hands, walked to opposite corners of the tee and then came out swinging ... their clubs. Expecting a fistfight perhaps? Scorecards showed matching 69s for Woods and Mickelson, their showdown ruled a draw, but still accompanied by the kind of fanfare that might be expected from this rare superstar matchup.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. - When Tiger Woods arrived at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., for the 2000 PGA Championship, the hoopla surrounding the world's best player had reached hysterical proportions. At the time, Woods was trying to duplicate what the legendary Ben Hogan had done nearly a half-century before by winning three major championships in the same year. Woods, then 24, accomplished the feat by beating Bob May in a playoff. When Woods tees off tomorrow in the 87th PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, he will be trying to do pretty much the same thing.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- The late-afternoon sun filtered through the trees yesterday at Medinah Country Club as Tiger Woods removed his cap to salute the fans who cheered each footstep of his leisurely stroll up the 18th fairway and straight into legend once again. Woods left Medinah with the $1.224 million winner's check, his 12th major championship and his streak intact of nine straight rounds in the 60s. The numbers are more than impressive; they are dominating. He made only three bogeys in 72 holes, played the par-5 holes in a combined 8-under par, made 21 birdies and, for good measure, became only the fifth player to win the PGA Championship at least three times.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- Somebody must have gotten the name wrong. Mighty Medinah? After yesterday's third round of the PGA Championship, it's time for a change. Try Mickey Mouse Medinah. There were enough birdies to fill up an aviary at Medinah Country Club, which had been enjoying this huge buildup as a tree-lined, golf ball-munching, 7,561-yard uphill march through a grassy gauntlet. Not so much. Medinah has turned out to be about as macho as a doormat. And this is precisely how Tiger Woods treated it, walking all over the place with a 7-under-par 65 yesterday that matched the course record.

Louis Oosthuizen Barry Stavro Los Angeles Times My Ouija board says the PGA champ will emerge from the group of 16 players who have won the last 16 majors and, no, Tiger Woods isn't in that mix. Sunday's winner will be … South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Granted, he's one of the more obscure names among the recent 16 major winners. But he's having a fine year. He came within a ball turn of sinking the winning putt at Augusta before Bubba Watson came out of the trees in a playoff to beat him for a green jacket, and Oosthuizen has continued to play well; he was in the mix last week at Firestone.

Major League Lacrosse Bayhawks' Turner named Defensive Player of Week Chesapeake Bayhawks goalie Kip Turner (Severn) earned Major League Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in the Bayhawks' 14-13 victory over the Boston Cannons on Saturday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. "This is a well-deserved honor for Kip and our entire team," general manager Brian Reese stated. "Kip had some extra motivation playing against his former team and came up with some huge saves, especially at the end of the game, to help seal the win. " Turner made nine saves in the fourth quarter and tallied a season-high 17 saves in total as the Bayhawks won their fifth straight game.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Several pros mocked Whistling Straits' 18th hole after the 2004 PGA Championship, saying it seemed contrived and had too small a green. Fuzzy Zoeller called the 500-yard par-4 "a joke" and added, "There's nothing good about it. " Now it's all good. Architect Pete Dye expanded the fairway, allowing players to try to bomb it over the giant bunker complex on the left. Steve Stricker used the new strip of fairway as a lay-up area in the first round — and got up-and-down for par after a gorgeous wedge shot from 142 yards.

Set up for Harrington Jeff Shain Orlando Sentinel Padraig Harrington might be having the most consistent season of his career, with more top-10 finishes between the PGA Tour and European circuit than any other year. On the flip side, it has been two years since his last trophy at the 2008 PGA. I like the indicators, though. Harrington tied for ninth at last week's Bridgestone Invitational and notched a runner-up finish at the Irish Open before that.

Fifteen years ago, the land that was to become Whistling Straits was marked by abandoned cars, rusted refrigerators and the occasional unexploded mortar shell from an old anti-aircraft training base. Now the stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline is set to play a prominent role in helping shape the next decade of golf memories. Not only is the PGA Championship back for its second tour in six years — the fastest turnaround in that major's history — but it will make a third appearance in 2015.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Yesterday's second round of the 85th PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club turned into the saga of two left-handers whose careers are going in different directions. Mike Weir, who used the tough lesson he learned four years ago in this tournament at Medinah to help him win his first major title four months ago at the Masters, showed why he is quickly becoming one of the world's best players. Phil Mickelson, who hasn't seemed to learn from the mistakes he has made at countless majors throughout his 11-year career, demonstrated again why he hasn't won in more than a year and currently has the longest streak of frustration in golf's biggest events.

ST. LOUIS -- The third round of a golf tournament is traditionally a day of positioning. Some players move up. Some fall back, especially when the pressure of winning a major event builds.So it was yesterday at Bellerive Country Club, as the PGA Championship leaders leap frogged, fell back and tried to gain the most advantageous spot for today's final round. But at the top, nothing changed, thanks to one clutch putt.You want a champion? Take your pick. There's Gene Sauers, who was supposed to wilt under the pressure but turned in a steady 1-under-par 70 for a 7-under-par 206 and a two-stroke lead over Jeff Maggert and Nick Price.
