The PGA vs The Other Majors
Vallhalla oozed no sort of Pinehurst-ian aura. But it was, in the end, the site of some of the most exciting golf drama weve ever seen. And thats what people remember.
So anybody who tries to minimize the PGA Championship in comparison to the other majors, while free to do so, risks diminishing what Tiger and Bob May did a year ago, what Tiger and Sergio did at Medinah, what Davis Love III did at Winged Foot in 1997, what Steve Elkington did at Riviera in 1995, what Nick Price did at Southern Hills in 1994, what Paul Azinger did at Inverness in 1993 or what John Daly did at Crooked Stick in 1991.
In a way, The PGA may be the loosest of all the majors with very little ego attached to it. The others must own up to whatever mystique has been rendered by the public and the media.
The PGA Championship is a golf competition with the same principals who tee it up at the other three majors. The wrapping or the sort of intangible packaging it comes in may be different or feel different. But open it up, and its often every bit as pleasing.
