Jordan Spieth, frustrated yet hopeful: 'I can't putt any worse than I did today'

  Jordan Spieth, frustrated yet hopeful: 'I can't putt any worse than I did today' Jordan Spieth struggled on the greens Thursday at the PGA Championship but was able to salvage an opening 72 to keep grand slam hopes alive.Spieth teed off in front of a packed 10th hole Thursday morning at Quail Hollow Club. That crowd, which included decorated Olympian Michael Phelps for all but the final few holes, stayed with the grand-slam hopeful for much of the way, even as Spieth failed to create any real excitement with his putter and eventually ended up with a few tap-in birdies as part of an opening 1-over 72.

A hole-in-one on a par 4?

That almost happened Saturday during Round 3 at the PGA Tour.

Graham DeLeat launched his tee shot on the 301-yard 4th hole with the intent of reaching it in one - and he did.

And he came thisclose to a hole-in-one, as well.

His shot lipped out as it skipped across the green. He just missed making the second ace on a par-4 in PGA Tour history. DeLeat would sink the 8-foot eagle to pick up 2 shots and move to 1 over.

Simpson: 'Setup has been too tough for a PGA'

  Simpson: 'Setup has been too tough for a PGA' Much was made of the renovations to Quail Hollow in the run-up to the 99th PGA Championship, which made the course more difficult.

This came after Simpson singled out the pin location on the 18th hole."18, we have got a pin six yards on the green.
