A Major comes back after thirteen months and starts again with the 102nd edition of the US PGA Championship. It was supposed to be the second in the series, but in the calendar turned upside down by the emergency, it became the first, which had not happened since 1971.
It will be followed by the US Open (17-20 September) and the Masters (12-15 November), while the Open Championship jumped for the first time since 1945, which was the last to be played in July last year with a title to Shane Lowry.
There will be no Francesco Molinari, winner of The Open Championship 2018 and of the Ryder Cup of the same season. All eyes of the world will be on Tiger Woods, who is looking for his 16th career Major. The PGA Championships will be held from 6 to 9 August 2020.
This is the text of the tweet written by the American legend Tiger Woods, who, to play the US PGA Championships skipped the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational 2020: "I'm sorry to skip the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, but I'm doing what I think is best to prepare for the PGA Championship and for the FedEx Cup playoffs."
Renato Paratore won the British Masters
Renato Paratore, amazing from the first to the 72nd hole, triumphs at the British Masters in Newcastle - upon-tyne, before the six stages of Uk Swing. A race behind closed doors won by the 23 yeas-old Italian in a naturally unusual climate, few applause but of the people who count, those players who have already conquered so much on the tour and who know what it means to reach this milestone.
Gold medalist at the youth Olympics and already protagonist in 2017 at the Nordea Masters, the young Renato returns to be the protagonist on the European tour leaving the Danish Rasmus Hojgaard with three detachments. A success that earns him a hundred positions in the world ranking and that makes him climb to the top ten in the special Race to Dubai ranking.
Renato Paratore's name alongside those of other greats who have made the history of the British Masters: from Westwood to Woosnam. Four impeccable days for Paratore who only ran into a couple of mistakes on the last 18 holes.
A well-deserved success resulting from a great technical effort and the winning choice to move to Dubai to improve one's golf together with the pro and friend Guido Migliozzi, at the end of the 60th this weekend. But Renato Paratore's goals for this just restarted season are many.
From the short-term one to play the Us Open in New Yok in September to the decidedly more ambitious one to become the number one in the Race to Dubai. in the footsteps of a great Italian player like Francesco Molinari.
