08:12 AM ET 03.05 | Michael Thompson battled the elements, a tough competitor in rookie Luke Gutherie and a forgotten veteran trying to get his status back. Everybody won. Michael Thompson won his first PGA Championship, Luke Guthrie got close, and learned not to double-cross his driver when under pressure, and we saw a Tigeresque chip-in from Geoff Oglivy at the 16th hole with the gallery spilling beer on him. What more could we ask for? All three players improved their status on the tour, Thompson gets an invite to Doral for next week's WGC-Cadillac event, and should be on the guest list at Augusta next month. Luke Gutherie learned what, and what not to do if he wants to win a tournament, from his playing partner, and Geoff Ogilvy got a little closer to becoming the world class player he was before he, and his golf game, fell on hard times.

Geoff Ogilvy coming back is nice to see. He has such a beautiful swing it's hard to fathom why he's been struggling the last few years.
