PGA Championship 2017: What is the prize money?

One huge shocker it's calling: Dustin Johnson, the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world and a Vegas favorite at 9/1, doesn't even crack the top 10.

Jordan Spieth made a slow start in his quest to complete the career grand slam, though two late birdies salvaged a one-over-par 72 at the PGA Championship on Thursday.

Several players, including Phil Mickelson, have praised the decision to host the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. The Northern Irishman's appearance in this week's US PGA Championship marks only his second outing since he split from his long-time bagman, JP Fitzgerald. No, I don't feel that kind of pressure. The knock-on effect is that the PGA Tour's play-offs, the megabucks FedEx Cup, can be brought forward to possibly conclude by the end of August.

"I've proven myself enough over the last nine years of my career". You never know what's around the corner. "I'm not comparing myself to Jack". We were talking about plateaus and he was talking about a book.

"My speed control was just a little off and I burnt a lot of edges". It's hard to win them. "I'm excited to be doing that today". Woods and Nicklaus are the lone players to own a slam three times over, having won each of the majors at least three times.

Taking all of this into account, McIlroy at 7/1 (Betfred) and Spieth at 11/1 (Paddy Power) presents reliable offers, with the American definitely the better option each-way of the pair. He missed The Masters this year due to injury and admits to still not being 100%. "You do think whatever happens, I've already won the Masters and it's incredible", Garcia said. Everything has got to be good. But I think through the latter part of previous year, I got a little bit burnt out.

"But it was only weeks ago that I was able to get the third leg, and that's so fresh in my mind". Both have been playing outstanding golf in 2017. "So we of course need to get through this week, but I would tell you we can't wait to get back here". "When you look at 46 events over the course of the season, right now, I don't expect that to change".

And, of course, it wouldn't be a major if we didn't talk about Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter.

"Almost like I've accomplished something so great this year that anything else that happens, I can accept", he said. In the final round before the Presidents Cup selections, he shot 62 while playing with Phil Mickelson, who told US captain Fred Couples, "Dude, you've got to pick this guy".

Day said he felt his speed returning at the Bridgestone Invitational in OH last week, and he has been working diligently on his short game, which he described as "very poor" in 2017. Check out the tee times, TV schedule and live-streaming options here.

"I'm here, so I'm going to go ahead and try", Spieth said. "I mean, the last five holes, six holes, was by far my best putting the entire week", he said.
