Shorts (yes, shorts!) made their major debut Monday at the PGA

Shorts (yes, shorts!) made their major debut Monday at the PGA”

The fourth and final major of 2017 is set to take place this weekend.

Bevacqua also said that the move will likely open markets that the event never could consider because of extreme heat in the south and southwest in May. Add two PGA Championships on the resume and, if he is healthy, the Wanamaker could be his.

Northern Ireland's four-time major victor Rory McIlroy was even more enthusiastic. "We feel May is a far more powerful date for us to contest our major championship".

A victor of US PGA Tour titles at Quail Hollow in 2010 and 2015 and only lost in 2012 in a play-off.

For the time being, Spieth is among 13 golfers to have won three of the four majors.

McIlroy was a 20/1 outsider for the Open after missing three cuts in his previous four starts, but followed his battling performance at Birkdale with a tie for fifth in last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. "I played with him the first two days and the way that he is driving the golf ball, if he continues to do it there, he just has a massive advantage over the field". This was the lowest round of golf registered by a player in this event.

In addition to the PGA Championship being played this week, this year's schedule has the Tour Championship set for September 21-24, which will be Week 3 of the NFL's regular season and Week 4 for major college football.

After 16 months of renovations, Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte is ready for the 99th PGA Championship.

Second-ranked Spieth won last month's British Open for his third career major title after the 2015 Masters and US Open, and at 24 could become the youngest player to complete a career grand slam by winning the PGA title this week.

Jimmy Walker broke through for his biggest win to date previous year at the US PGA Championship.

The 2012 U.S. Open champion feels like a sneaky play this week.

"To be in that company, no doubt, is absolutely incredible and I certainly appreciate it", Spieth said. So no, I just want to go out there and play well this week. "I think it's about time I stepped up and won one".

"The tracks are always really good".

"I think for Jordan this week he's going to have to put that [winning the grand slam] in the back of his mind and concentrate on the golf course, and if anybody can do it in the game it's Jordan".

"It's going to kind of space everything out a little bit more instead of it all being kind of crammed together", said top-ranked Dustin Johnson.
