One thing that concerned PGA of America executives heading into this week’s PGA Championship was Rochester’s early-morning weather.
Of course, the 105th game of the tournament — traditionally played in August until it moved to May in 2019 — will be played amid very cold temperatures on Thursday, at least for golf.
It was a slightly chilly Wednesday ahead as the players made their final preparations for the second major championship of the season.
