Round 1 of the PGA Championship will broadcast starting at noon on TNT.

FARMINGDALE, N.J.—It's been a month since Tiger Woods stunned the golf world by overcoming four back surgeries and periods when his troubled career appeared to be over by winning the Masters for his first major in 11 years.

"I still don't think people understand what he did in April and coming back, and with everything that he's been through," four-time major champion Rory McIlroy said Tuesday. "It's unbelievable. Whether it's the greatest comeback in sports, that's probably up for debate, but from what I've experienced and the things that he said when I've been around him, to be 2 years ago from looking like maybe not playing golf again to winning the first major of the year and being the favorite going into the second major of the year, I mean, that's unbelievable."

 

 

A PGA committee on the American with Disabilities Act made the decision to allow John Daly to use a cart at this week's event, the championships director for the PGA of America said Tuesday.

It's safe to say Tiger Woods was not impressed with the request.

"As far as J.D. taking a cart, well, I walked with a broken leg," Woods said.

He was referring to the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, which Woods played on shredded ligaments in his left knee and a double stress fracture in the leg. He played 91 holes, winning in a playoff.

Daly has arthritis in his right knee and he requested to be allowed to use a cart because of medical issues. He will be the first player to ride in a cart at a major championship since Casey Martin in the U.S. Open at Olympic Club in 1998 and 2012.
