Thomas rallies for first major

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Justin Thomas emerged from the shadow of a longtime friend and won the PGA Championship to take his place among the young elite in golf.

With two big breaks to start the back nine, a chip-in for birdie to seize control, and a timely seven-iron that soared over the water to a peninsula green, Thomas closed with a three-under 68 yesterday for a two-shot victory.

Pieters grabs early lead

AKRON, Ohio—Rory McIlroy had his best friend on the bag and his best start on American soil in 18 months.

For Jordan Spieth, it was more of the same with two long putts and another comment filled with bravado directed at his caddie.

Both of them opened with a three-under 67 at the Bridgestone Invitational, leaving them two shots behind Thomas Pieters of Belgium.

Garcia chasing first claret jug

SOUTHPORT, England—Sergio Garcia won't be wearing his green jacket from Augusta National at his wedding.

What about pouring champagne from a claret jug?

Garcia doesn't have one yet, though he loves the thought of such possibilities, especially considering that only four months ago, the 36-year-old Spaniard was learning to accept his career might end without a major.
