PGA Championship Odds 2017: Latest Betting Lines, Favorites For Golf Major

Matsuyama, 25, the world's third-ranked player, heads to Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina for this weekend's PGA Championship, the final major of the year and his last chance to cap off a year in which the Japanese star moved into the elite in golf.

"I know what I need to work on, really each part of the game, there's something that I need to just put in some work with, but I do know what it is and that's the best part". But I'm fighting back right now and I feel like the game's as good as it was, you know, before then. "It's hard when you feel like the year's kind of gone, it's hard to kind of pick yourself up", said Day. If it happens great.

Spieth backed away from the favorite role, saying, "I'd say Rory is probably the guy to beat".

A victory this week is all that stands between him and the record now held by Tiger Woods: the youngest man to hold golf's career Grand-Slam record of The Masters, US Open, Open Championship and US PGA Championship.

An annoyed Jason Day admits he has endured a "very, very poor year" but he is eager to return to form ahead of the US PGA Championship.

The biggest storyline this week at the PGA Championship, you may have heard, is Jordan Spieth's attempt to become the youngest player to complete the career Grand Slam.

When and where will the PGA Championship be played?

Johnson appeared poised to earn his second major win in April as he came to Augusta on the strength of three consecutive wins.

Moscow Mule Copper Mug May Cause Food Poisoning
Though most restaurateurs know not to use copper when preparing food, being barred from using it for drinks is a newer discovery. Food experts have long known not to use copper, or copper-related pots and pans for cooking acidic recipes such as tomato sauce.

Despite the weather concerns, it seems like the PGA has made a good decision to alter the schedule and maximize excitement for the PGA Championship.

"This is a major championship, this is one of the four pivotal weeks of the year that we focus on so there will certainly be pressure, but I'm simply stating there won't be added expectations or pressure", Spieth said at his pre-tournament press conference.

Blame that on Quail Hollow.

Rory McIlroy is expected to be a contender for a third Wanamaker Trophy after wins in 2012 and 2014. That would put him fourth on the all-time list behind Nicklaus and Walter Hagen with five and Woods with four. "They are fair", McIlroy said.

After winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week, Matsuyama will be seen as one of the favorites this week at Quail Hollow Club. He won his first US PGA title in 2010 on the 7,600-yard, par-71 layout at age 20 with a final-round course record 62.

Woods shot 61 twice at Firestone.

'I'm excited to play a schedule like that.

"I haven't won a major yet", Matsuyama said.
