What time does Tiger Woods tee off at the PGA Championship?

August 7, 2018

The 2018 PGA Championship begins on Thursday at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. It’s the fourth and final major of the year, and Tiger Woods is once again in the field. Below you can find Tiger Woods’ tee time for the first and second round of the PGA.

Woods begins Round 1 at 9:23 a.m. ET alongside Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas. Thomas just captured his third victory of the season at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. McIlroy won the PGA in both 2012 and 2014, the latter of which represents his last major win.

The trio of Woods/McIlroy/Thomas tee off for the second round at 2:48 p.m. ET Friday afternoon. You can see a full list of tee times for the first and second rounds here.

Woods is trying to cap off his surprising Tour comeback season with a win. He has not reached the winner’s circle since 2013.
But many imagined Woods would struggle to even return to the course, let alone play a full season and contend at last month’s British Open. Woods held the lead briefly at Carnoustie after an early Sunday charge. He failed to keep it, though, finishing T6, three shots behind champion Francesco Molinari.

Last week, he played well on Thursday and Friday, raising fans’ hopes for a ninth-career WGC-Bridgestone Invitational triumph. But Woods stalled on the weekend, finishing well off the lead.

He won his last major championship over a decade ago at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. He’s been stuck at 14 career majors since then, plagued by close calls as well as a series of severe injuries requiring surgery.

Woods owns four Wanamaker trophies in all. He triumphed at the PGA Championship in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007. He nearly won the PGA in 2009 at Hazeltine. Woods held the 54-hole lead heading into Sunday, but for the first time in his career he surrendered it by the end of the day. Y.E. Yang bested Woods in the final round to hoist the trophy.

The PGA Championship moves to May next year. Bethpage Black on Long Island will host the inaugural Spring-version of the event.
