KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – In Friday’s harrowing episode of “Survivor: Kiowah Island,” 83 tribe members were voted off the island and many of them fled the exits like men just released from indenture.
In one punishing 24-hour turnaround, the 94th PGA Championship morphed from a fun-filled birdie-fest into one of the hardest days in major championship memory that left many of the dazed combatants feeling as if they had just crawled across 7,676 yards of broken glass and beaten to a pulp.
“That’s because we were,” co-leader Tiger Woods said. “Sometimes you have slow days but the conditions aren’t brutal like this.”
Amid the chaos prompted by 40 kph wind, a bit of rain and the PGA’s sadistic set-up, 49-year-old Vijay Singh emerged as the king of the survivors, if not the leaderboard.

RORY McILROY romped to one of the greatest Major victories in history at Congressional but believes lifting the Claret Jug next Sunday at Lytham would be his “greatest achievement in golf”.
“To win that first Major was very important,” said McIlroy (23).
Just ask Luke Donald. The Englishman has been at the top of golf’s world rankings for a total of 52 weeks, and even if that period of supremacy has been accumulated over four separate spells it still adds up to a whole year of being the undisputed No 1 player on the planet. But he has never finished better than third in a major.
And nor would you say that he has been getting closer with every passing year. His two third places were at the 2005 Masters and the 2006 PGA Championship. His status as the best player never to win a major is established beyond all reasonable doubt. Only Lee Westwood comes close.
