Dust yourself down, and get back in the mix, and in the words of Michael Barrymore, I’ve got a bit of top, middle and bottom for you this week. Otherwise translated as shorty, middle of the pack, and a ‘buy a house’ outsider. So enough of the waffle and off to Whistling Straits, where Dustin knows how expensive those ‘bunkers’ can be!
OK, so I always put money on Kevin Kisner to win every major. Don't ask me why. I just get the impression he might one day. So I always put money on him at the majors. Always. Except for this time. And naturally he is leading after day one... Anyway, I cheered myself up by watching these brilliant shots from last night.

There were some cracking shots hit in the first round of the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Rory's water save was incredible, while how did that approach from Phil Mickelson not go in the hole?
Dustin Johnson is really good at golf as he proved at the PGA Championship. Much better than us definitely, and when he's on top form there are very few who can keep up with him around Whistling Straits. We broke his first round down into numbers.
The third in our series of videos with double major champion Martin Kaymer, this time he tells us about his three favourite holes at Whistling Straits. He doesn't use the word HILF, but that's definitely what he meant...
It was what Jim Ross would call a "slobber knocker" of a day at Whistling Straights as birdies were banged in left, right and centre. It was a battle royal for the top spot, fought for ferociously, with the lead changing from one moment to the next.

Rickie Fowler is one of the hottest players in the game, and this week at the PGA Championship he'll loook one of the sharpest too. While still wearing his Puma Sunday orange, the OSU alumni has really stepped up his game on the course this year.
Whistling Straits: The drama, the glory, the tee times...
CT Pan became only the second players from Chinese Taipei, or Taiwan as it is better known, to win on the PGA Tour and the first since 1987 when TC Chen won the Genesis Open. The diminutive Pan held his nerve over the final few holes to take the crown and earn himself a $1.2 million pay day.

One of the great things about the US PGA is that club pros can qualify for the event, and stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia. One such player who has qualified to play at Whistling Straits this week, who you might not have heard of, has already played, and beaten, Sergio Garcia before.
Brooks Koepka had just teed off in the final round of the Open. We then heard ‘on the tee, JB Holmes from the USA’, the camera zoomed in on the man sitting in third place at Royal Portrush, then nothing. The guy looked confused as he suddenly wasn’t sure about something. Was it the wind had shifted? Had he changed his mind at to which club to take? Or perhaps he’d left the cooker on back at the house? Whatever it was he’d been standing on that tee for a good few minutes waiting for his tee time and he clearly was not ready.
It is now some two weeks since Tiger’s historical victory in The Masters and the frenzy that went with it. CT Pan’s win at the Heritage was impressive but taking nothing away from CT, the event did suffer somewhat from a Masters’ hangover. So, what is there to wet us golf lovers’ appetite this week? That will be the Zurich Classic Team event
Following the storm delays of Friday, Shane Lowry completed his second round on Saturday morning, retaining his one shot lead over the field. His impressive run of bogey free golf continued with only one in his first 48 holes but he then dropped a shot at his next two holes. He did well at the 14th to only drop the one shot as his approach found the water and it required a fine long putt to rescue the situation.
When you meet Jordan Spieth, what strikes you isn’t a win-at-all costs, day-in and day-out grind type of athlete. Calm, cool and unendingly polite, he smiles and introduces himself, a firm handshake belying a lean and lithe 6-foot-1 frame.

Trial by television was with us again at the Bay Hill Classic on Thursday. No Patrick Reed this time but rather the squeaky-clean Justin Rose. Rose had a tricky chip from the back of the 11th which he ran some 10 feet past the pin but did he move the ball at address?
What did Scott Piercy think when he chose to share social media posts which at best one could describe as controversial? Surely he realised in this day and age that such views might not sit well with the public? Clearly not and it will hurt him in the pocket as sponsors start to distance themselves from the player.
Poor old Francesco Laporta, he flew into Doha to play in the Qatar Masters only to be shown the red card and had to turn about and fly straight back to Italy.

Ok as nobody else seems to be doing it, I am going to come out and defend the seemingly indefensible, or at the very worst add a bit of perspective. Hank Hainey made a pretty unwise statement and was clearly mistaken in taking what might be described as ‘locker room humour’ to the airways. But, was he being ‘racist, xenophobic, and sexist’ as stated by the PGA Tour’s lawyers?
As expected, the LPGA has confirmed that they have cancelled two more events in Asia.

They needed it to be tough out there if they were going to challenge Shane Lowry but in the end, it was too tough and the conditions actually played in to the hands of the big man. For a man who grew up playing links golf up and down Ireland he was always going to be one of best equipped if the really high winds came.
As Brooks Koepka quietly tiptoes his way up the leaderboard at the Open at Royal Portrush we take a look at the club he is using to boom those drives out there on this famous links course.
The course the best in the world will take on this week will arguably be a stiffer test to that which faced Max Faulkner when he won the Open when it was last hosted by Royal Portrush way back in 1951. It will be a slightly tougher test than when a sixteen year old Rory McIlroy took it apart when shooting 61.
The Open is less than a week away and so what better than a fine bit of Golf Porn from the fantastic links at Royal Portrush. 15th Hole, Par 4, 426 yards

Rose’s round is the joint lowest ever shot at Pebble Beach in an U.S. Open.
The US open is returning to Pebble Beach with its magnificent views, tiny greens and changeable conditions. All factors that are taxing The Spiv’s brain matter as he sips on his port and peruses the field. But this year its all different as GolfPunk has a new algorithm and its going to make us all rich (necessary caveats and waivers apply of course).
The fourteen qualifiers from yesterday’s European U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying consisted of no fewer than ten different nationalities. South African Dean Burmester led the list of qualifiers with a total of 128, sixteen under par and four shots clear.
How do you come back from blowing a seven shot lead in a major? Well, fortunately for Brooks Koepka it is a question that he will not have to answer. Staring down the barrel of the gun and the biggest collapse in golf major history, Koepka dug deep, held his nerve and took the title.

Ever since we started GolfPunk back in the day, we've had a slightly irrational desire to go and play golf in Mauritius. I mean, who wouldn't? But, somehow it never seemed attainable. The very idea of it seems so out of reach, right?... the Indian Ocean, white sands, fancy cocktails and golf shots across the ocean.
