The 99th PGA Championship starts tomorrow, 10 August 2017 and runs for four rounds until Sunday, 13 August 2017.
The tournament this year will be played at Quail Hollow, in Charlotte N.C . This year’s championship is Quail Hollow’s first major. Quail Hollow is a bombers course (7600 yards) that several top pros have played very well; among that group is Roy McIlroy who has two wins and a course and tournament record at Quail Hollow.
The other big favorite is Jordan Spieth, who-if he wins–would be the youngest golfer to complete a grand slam and win all four majors. Other pre=tournament picks are Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler(he’s due), Jon Rahm, Tony Finau and Dustin Johnson (who’s not been himself since the fall that took him out of the 2017 Masters).
In preparation for the tournament, which begins airing/streaming tomorrow, here’s a great hole-by-hole overview of the course from the PGA.
Dig in and get familiar with the course on which the year’s last golf major will be played. Lots more deep background on the 2017 PGA Championship coming up, courtesy of the Nightshift Sports staff.
