PGA star Rickie Fowler indicated to reporters at a news conference in Atlanta on Tuesday he plans to play in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas next month.
There's no clock in golf, except if the marshal tells someone he's playing too slow and to pick up the pace. But for Patrick Lindsey, time is his biggest enemy as he oversees preparations for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
If majors continue to slip from his grasp, Dustin Johnson will be stuck with the label of a career underachiever. The critics will say he squandered his immense talent, that he never could win the big one.
Phil Mickelson has long been hosting "Tuesdays with Phil" money matches the week of a major. This Tuesday was no different, as "Lefty" and Rickie Fowler took on Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas for bragging rights and a handful of $100 bills in a practice round at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, where the PGA Championship tees off Thursday.
These 10 players are worth watching at this week's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

Obviously, it's cool to be hip and trending. Most people would prefer that as opposed to being hated and vilified. But there is a danger in becoming too popular, and Bubba Watson is walking that proverbial tightrope this week.
Professional handicapper Wes Reynolds (@WesReynolds1 on Twitter) is using a mythical bankroll of $200 to bet the PGA Championship futures board at the Westgate Las Vegas:
Trailing by seven strokes after three rounds, former UNLV star Adam Scott said he still could contend for the U.S. Open championship Sunday at Chambers Bay.
Former UNLV star Adam Scott and Summerlin resident Kevin Na would need a miracle to pull out a victory Sunday in the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Club in University Place, Wash. Scott is seven strokes off the lead and Na eight entering the final round.
Jordan Spieth is the 7-4 favorite on the adjusted odds board at the Westgate Las Vegas sports book to win the U.S. Open. Dustin Johnson is the 5-2 second choice, followed by Jason Day (4-1) and Branden Grace (6-1). The four are tied for the lead entering Sunday’s final round.
Former UNLV golf stars Ryan Moore and Charley Hoffman missed the cut Friday after the second round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Club in University Place, Wash. Another former Rebel, Adam Scott, advanced to the final two rounds and is six strokes off the lead.
With a 10-over-par 80 in the first round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Club, Tiger Woods looked more like a local amateur playing the public links-style course than a 14-time major championship winner. Only two golfers carded worse scores in the field of 156.
Carrying 14 golf clubs over 7,585 yards of greenish-brown hills and dales and granite-like fairways will make it difficult on the caddies at scenic Chambers Bay Golf Club this week during the U.S. Open.
Tiger Woods sank to the bottom of the U.S. Open leaderboard after an opening round 10-over 80 on Thursday, but vowed to fight on and return to the top.
I never imagined it would last this long, that in predicting three years ago Tiger Woods would never again win a major championship, so much time would pass without my seemingly faulty forecast being proven wrong. But his streak without a major has reached 27 events. I’m more confident now than ever he will retire stuck on 14.
Play begins Thursday in the U.S. Open, the second major tournament of the year, and a lot of golfers are unhappy about what they call unfair playing conditions at Chambers Bay Golf Club. “I’ve never played anything like this in the States,” Kevin Na said.
Former UNLV standout Adam Scott was among the first of 156 players competing this week to arrive for the U.S. Open. He’ll have 11 days of practice under his belt by Thursday’s first round and will welcome back caddie Steve Williams, who helped Scott to his only major championship, the 2013 Masters.
Phil Mickelson has six runner-up finishes in the U.S. Open, the only major he has not won. But he is playing well, and bettors are showing faith in him. More tickets are being written on Mickelson than on any other player at the Westgate Las Vegas sports book, where his odds are 15-1 after opening at 25-1. Rory McIlroy is the 7-1 favorite, with Jordan Spieth at 8-1.
Tiger Woods will make his next start in The Players Championship in two weeks. The tournament, the PGA Tour’s flagship event, is at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., on May 7-10.
Jordan Spieth, 16 under par and holding a four-shot lead after three rounds of the Masters, is a minus-240 favorite against the field, according to adjusted odds at the Westgate Las Vegas sports book.
If golf tournaments ended after 18 holes, this would be a popular result. Jordan Spieth, the betting public’s pick to win the Masters, threatened to run away from the pack during Thursday’s first round and walked into the Augusta National clubhouse with a three-stroke lead.
