Another player who could come between McIlroy and a title at Quail Hollow is Jordan Spieth, who is going for a career Grand Slam at the PGA Championship, having recently won the British Open.

This year, the PGA Championship will be held at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. "I don't need to be the youngest". McIlroy also commented on his reasoning behind the decision to fire Fitzgerald, saying, "I feel like if I make a decision, that's mine and I own it".

"I just feel I can turn up and play golf, without any outside distractions". If it happens great.

For the first time ever at a major championship, golfers have been permitted to wear shorts during practice rounds at this week's US PGA Championship.

Johnson has also had many frustrating disappointments at majors, including the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, where he was penalised for grounding his club in what was ruled a bunker on the 72nd hole that kept him from joining a playoff.

The running joke leading up the PGA Championship was that no other major championship course had so many white stakes except they weren't boundary markers.

Don't be surprised to Spieth to be around the mark when the major is up for grabs on Sunday.

When we get into September there's perhaps the opportunity to bring the Ryder Cup forward and for events like the BMW PGA Championship to have their moment as well.

"In the end, we determined that playing the PGA Championship the week prior to Memorial Day in May, making it the second major championship of the golf calendar, will achieve those three objectives". That would put him fourth on the all-time list behind Nicklaus and Walter Hagen with five and Woods with four. "They are fair", McIlroy said. Spieth's only Quail Hollow start in 2013 resulted in a T32.

The sum of the parts adds to 7,600 yards and a par 71. "This is going to be one of the most challenging tracks I think that we have played".

The 30-year-old's world ranking dipped inside the top-100 for the first time but has slipped back to 101st, 14 slots behind Lee. This week the favourites will include my friend Hideki Matsuyama, who last week shot a final round 61 to win the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, his second WGC title after the WGC-HSBC in October 2016.

Woods completed this in his renowned 2000 season when he won by eight (yes, eight!) shots at The Open in St Andrews.

World number one says he's nearly back to the level where he was before injuring his back on the eve of the Masters. American Chris Kirk replaced Snedeker in the field. Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, who won the US PGA in 2012 and 2014, will feature alongside Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler.
