So it's no surprise that McIlroy is one of the favorites to win the PGA Championship this week.

"I don't think the final decision has been taken yet on that", Slumbers said at the time. If anything there is more pressure on guys like Jordan. I am going to go out and enjoy it. "(It) means I'm playing well".

"At the Masters, there are always a few more nerves at the Masters. I grounded a club in what they still say is a bunker", he said to laughter from reporters.

Although the 24-year-old knows his game better than anyone, there is an old adage that you never write off a champion.

The 28-year-old won his fourth and last major title at the 2014 US PGA and he has had six top-10 finishes since, including a share of fourth place at The Open.

"I would be on the side of someone you get along with", he said.

"I'm past that point".

"This has been a very, very poor year for me".

"At the start of this year, I wasn't fussed about my results because, obviously, I was distracted (by his mum's cancer diagnosis)", Day told AAP on Wednesday. "It's hard when you feel like the year's kind of gone, it's hard to kind of pick yourself up", said Day. That's right, I'm upset because it's the last major championship of the season. My health is pretty much where it needs to be. I am playing well and have been in contention and it is a matter of closing the deal. The club combined the opening two holes (a par 4 and a par 3) into a 524-yard first hole that plays as stout as any par 4 in a major. For now, Spieth is among a select group of 13 players who have captured three of the four majors in their careers. "But it could be a long week, and I'm prepared for it and ready for it". I've shot a couple really low scores. The biggest adjustment is everything is just on a big scale from crowds to rewards and things you are required to do off the course.

With The Players moving from May to March, golf will have one big event every month with the Masters in April, the US PGA in May, the US Open in June, The Open in July and the FedEx Cup playoffs in August and September. It wasn't that good, but then it went down and got worse after that.

"I played with him the first two days (last week) and the way that he is driving the golf ball ..."

"Yeah, look, there's been - we've been inundated with people wanting to have a chance to carry the bag. It would be nice if both of us did it in 2018, but we'll see how it goes".
