The big news this week is that beginning in 2019 the PGA Championship will be played in May. The Players will move to March, where it was played for most of its history. So now there'll be the Players, a near-major, in March, The Masters in April, the PGA in May, the U.S. Open in June, and the British Open in July. The FedEx Cup playoffs will also be moved up so that they end before football season gets in high gear. It will also make the Olympics less disruptive, as last year the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup had to be squeezed around them. I think it's a great move. The PGA has become the poor brother to the other three majors; making it the second major will give it a real boost in interest. For five straight months there will be a great tournament, followed by the FedEx Cup playoffs. I've tried to become interested in the FedEx Cup playoffs, but just haven't due to when they take place and I'm sure that's true of many other golf fans. Although there will still be tournaments from September through December, for the most part that will become golf's offseason, which is another good idea. Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els are both playing in their 100th major championship this week, only the 13th and 14th players to reach that mark. Between them they've won nine of them, not too shabby at all, and were right in the hunt in many others. Would like to see Jordan finish off his career grand slam and be the youngest ever to accomplish that very rare feat, if not wouldn't mind if Rory wins his third PGA and fifth major. There's a whole lot of other contenders in what should be a great tournament on the Quail Hollow course in Carmel, NC outside Charlotte.
