Jim Furyk is considered a veteran of the PGA Tours.
He and Steve Stricker would be participating in the Ryder Cup that would be held at the Hazeltine National Golf Club. It would be hosted about two months later.

Furyk currently holds the 18th position in the US. About a month later the players who would form the first eight of the team of 12 men would be decided.

A group of women who hit the links earlier on Saturday had a wild game of golf. Well, a coyote chased them and everything was caught on camera!
Rebecca Guldberg told the Yacht Charter Greece website that he ran up to them, as if it as a dog. After that, he taught to himself. They thought that it was not a dog. In fact, it was a coyote.

World number one Rory McIlroy says that he will soak the pressure as he attempts to secure his career Grand Slam at The Masters next year at Augusta National.

Lee Westwood who was a strong contender till before the first round of the USPGA, has shown signs that might be tumultuous.
The promising candidate and the hope of many in the UK, this English professional golfer has been unfazed by the series of bad omen from Lady Luck. Still he has managed to roar back to form with a blazing 63 in the final round at the Bridgestone Invitational (WGC) that had pocketed him a ticket to the USPGA. However this does not place him to be automatically qualified to the Ryder Cup championships and he has to enter as a wild card.
