Rory McIlroy says he has nothing to prove ahead of PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy says he has nothing to prove ahead of PGA Championship

He has played here seven times and has finished out of the top 10 just once. Jack Nicklaus. Tiger Woods.

You can follow all 72 holes (and possibly more) of the 2017 PGA Championship on your laptop, tablet, or phone thanks to the magic of the internet. And right when it looked as though Spieth might throw away another major, he almost made an ace and followed that with an eagle on his way to winning the British Open.

Besides the schedule change, will the players feel a difference?

The US PGA, which has always been identified as the season's fourth and final major, may have to find a new calling card. "Of course, the rest of the week did not pan out as well, but I do know a few things about the layout".

Officials announced the move at Quail Hollow, the host of the year's final major in 2017, on Tuesday.

Then again, none of the five went more than three years before adding the final leg to the Grand Slam. He's definitely a comfort player on tour and he should have that comfort factor coming back to Charlotte this week. But there are differences.

"It took a long time to fight back", Beach said Wednesday, "but to be here a year and some change later, it feels very special".

The advantage of warm weather and, for the first time all week, plenty of sunshine was a slightly drier course that allowed the ball to roll. "Tiger had very parallel wins in the way that he got it done, but that was nearly like a robot, and I don't really expect that to happen with myself". "It's great to be able to ride on the crest of a wave and just sort of keep it going".

"I'm not putting that much pressure on myself", he said. He considered McIlroy's age (28) and how many more opportunities he had in front of him.

However, the Danish food administration urged calm, saying the eggs bought by Danæg Products posed no risk to human consumption. The eggs came from farms in the Netherlands and were used as one ingredient in processed foods, such as sandwich fillings.

Among the other contenders for victory this week are the US's Rickie Fowler, who is still looking for an elusive first major.

"If they get about a foot faster, they are kind of unplayable with the pin placements", Koepka said.

"There will be pressure", he said.

McIlroy, meanwhile, isn't the only player trying to make sure the year doesn't end without him winning a major. "The PGA is such a great brand, and they do a lot for the game, and a lot of these guys wouldn't be where they are without a PGA professional, and I'm no different".

Johnson believes his game is close to where it was before the injury.

Bevacqua praised Johnny Harris for his leadership in bringing the tournament to Charlotte and the Quail Hollow Club course setup. His last four trips to Quail Hollow have resulted in 4th-4th-11th-3rd. He missed the cut twice and tied for 29th.

Garcia is hoping he can build on that and get on a roll early on at Quail Hollow.

Over the years, the U.S. Open has had the reputation of presenting the most hard conditions among golf's majors and the PGA was known for course set-ups that allowed players to attack pins.
