The 92nd PGA Championship

Was Dustin Johnson in a bunker? Had his penalty occurred on the first day of play, he could have blamed the fog, which enveloped the Whistling Straits course in Kohler, Wis. and delayed play. But it was Martin Kaymer who emerged from the mist, and from a three-hole playoff with Bubba Watson, to win the 92nd PGA Championship. Johnson missed the playoff, and this tournament may be remembered more for the controversy than for the play of the winner. ( 22 photos total)
