Jimmy Walker hasn't had a top-10 finish since early March. Missed the cut at two of the year's three majors so far. So why should he do well this week at the 98th PGA Championship? In his first five starts at the PGA, he flip-flopped between missed cuts and top-25 finishes. He MC'd last year at Whistling Straits. So this year at Baltusrol? He's currently 5 under through 14 holes and leading by a shot.

How Bill Belichick divides QB reps will be closely watched in camp. On Thursday, Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo split reps 50-50 in team drills. Brady was first to play in 7-on-7, while Garoppolo took top reps in 11-on-11. At one point in no-huddle work, the fields were split and both QBs worked at the same time. Belichick said Wednesday that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo ready to go, but that Brady will be the starter upon his return in Week 5.
