Toms was terrific, Mickelson missed a major once again and Shingo the Cowboy came close to getting in the record books. Read on to get the story of the 2001 PGA Championship.

1David Toms won the tournament by one stroke over Phil Mickelson. With the victory, David qualifies for the US Ryder Cup team and gets to cash a check for $936,000 US. The turning point of the tournament for David may have been during the third round when David picked up a hole-in-one on the 266 yard 15th hole.
1By finishing second, Phil Mickleson keeps his reputation as a player who can't play under pressure or win big tournaments. Phil was tied with David Toms during the final few holes but three-putted on the 16th hole. Too bad, so sad.
1Shingo Katayama came close to becoming the first Asian born player to win the PGA Championship. He led the tournament after two rounds but dropped back on the final two days to finish five shots off the lead. Even though he didn't win, Shingo gets two thumbs up for wearing a cowboy hat for the entire tournament.
1Has Tiger Woods lost his teeth, his tail, his claws and his ability to play golf? Probably not. But the player considered to be the best in the world has now finished out of the top ten in five straight tournaments. When you win as much as he has, expectations become sky high.
1The winner of the PGA Championship receives the Rodman Wanamaker Trophy. Rodman Wanamaker founded the PGA in 1916 and donated the trophy. He was a rich department store owner who also came up with the idea of singing the national anthem before sporting events.

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
