Ten players you will want to watch at this week’s PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club:
JORDAN SPIETH: With his first shot at completing the career Grand Slam, Spieth arrives with his game in excellent form.
RORY MCILROY: If you believe the horses for courses theory, this could be Rory’s week.
DUSTIN JOHNSON: His major championship season has been a bust to this point, but that could change in a hurry.
Never miss a local story.
HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: As thick as the Quail Hollow rough will be, ball-striking will be at a premium and he’s among the best.
SERGIO GARCIA: With a green jacket and a new wedding ring on his finger, Garcia is in a very good place and likes Quail Hollow.
JASON DAY: The flash is returning to his game after a flat start to the year, and when he’s on a roll he’s dangerous.
JON RAHM: He admits the next step for him is contending in a major, and this could be the week he does that.
RICKIE FOWLER: Seeking that major championship breakthrough at a place where he had his PGA Tour breakthrough.
CHARLEY HOFFMAN: Did you know he’s had at least a share of the lead at some point in all three majors this year?
BROOKS KOEPKA: He’s at home on big, muscular golf courses, and he loves playing major championships, as his record shows.
