Molinari had a holiday with his family, headed to OH for a World Golf Championship and then flew straight to Bellerive for the PGA Championship, the final major of the year.

"It was actually a nice escape being out on the course and not think about it", Scott said. "So he's shown over the past few years he's mentally very good, so I'm sure he won't have a problem".

The 100th PGA Championship has begun in stifling summer heat. "I think it would make it into a great year".

Woods might be bigger now than when he was winning, perhaps because fans had every right to wonder if they would ever see him again, or see him when he was capable of posting low scores. "I feel like I've actually got a clear vision of the golf course". "That's where his focus needs to be right now". And that was back in 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, an alternate event held the same week of the WGC Match Play. Not even he knows.

The season before the battle was basically down to Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. "So mentally you're still in a pretty good place". He bulked up because he wanted to get stronger in the legs and core, which could help him ward off injuries. As he grew into his body, "swinging that hard just resulted in hitting it farther", he said.

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood is a player who's seemingly in contention every week, yet he's still searching for his first victory on US soil and his first major championship.

"I realized that it was a great way for me to introduce kids in the inner city to something that I was not introduced to when I was a kid growing up in south central Los Angeles", he said. At the end of the day, a lot of careers are defined on major championships.

"I don't like to be up here". So if I'm looking at it from that standpoint, it's kind of mission accomplished with one to go. And not since Woods in 2006-07 has anyone won the PGA in consecutive years. He had to deal with plenty of commotion outside the ropes, especially when Woods took the lead for two holes in the middle of the final round.

"It's certainly close", McIlroy said of his game, which last produced a major championship at the 2014 PGA. "Our goal is to resolve that and come to a conclusion as quickly as possible", he added.

Tiger Woods has started bogey-double bogey at the PGA Championship, hitting wayward tee shots at his first two holes and dumping his approach shot at the par-4 11th in the water.

Coverage on the opening Thursday starts at 1.30pm BST with live coverage starting at 2.23pm when Justin Thomas, the defending champion, will start his first round. There are also four captain's picks up for grabs. "My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that".

Expectations are also high for Tiger Woods, whose last time at Bellerive was 17 years ago.

Spieth is having an off-year in 2018 and has finished outside of the Top 20 in eight of his last nine tournaments.

Finau's time to join the ranks of the top players on the PGA Tour is finally here.

Tommy Fleetwood keeps showing up at the biggest events.

The U.S. Open champion is dating model/actress Jena Sims.
