GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The course — which was originally designed by George Cobb in 1961, and was later upgraded by Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio — will play as a 7,600-yard par-71 for the event.
Jordan Spieth, the 2017 Open Champion and No. 2-ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Rankings, has an opportunity this week to become the youngest golfer ever to win the career grand slam. He’s not the betting favorite, however, at 8/1 odds. Rory McIlroy (7/1 odds), who’s currently ranked No. 4 in the OWGR, is touted as the favorite. Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama, the world’s No. 1 and 3-ranked golfers, respectively, are pegged at 12/1 odds to win the season’s fourth and final major.
In last year’s PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club (Lower Course), Jimmy Walker won his first and only major championship by one stroke over Jason Day. Both players are back in this year’s field, and they’re each looking to win their second PGA Championships.
