Highest places Englishman incentive at USPGA Golf Championship for Simon Dyson
10:21am Thursday 9th August 2012 in Golf
IN-FORM Simon Dyson will be hoping for another full English in the last major of the season, writes Tony Kelly.
The York-born golf ace opens his USPGA Championship at Kiawah Island as part of the third last threesome to go out on the Ocean Course.
He will be partnered by American tour veteran Scott Verplank, whose career has been dogged by injury and diabetes, and South Korea’s K J Choi, at 42-years-old six years the junior of the American.
For Dyson, the USPGA Championship has been his most successful of the four majors.
On each occasion he was the highest-placed Englishman in the star-studded field, so a now fully-fit Dyson will be hoping to at least match that distinction over the next four days as he seeks a customary strong finish to a competitive year, which has been marred by injury.
