PGA Championship

Find information on the 2017 PGA Championship at the Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina including news, scoring, videos, and photos. The last major championship of the year will get underway Thursday at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, and it will present a huge opportunity for Jordan Spieth.

After winning the British Open with a tremendous surge on the closing holes during the final round, Spieth has won three different major championships. The PGA Championship would give him the fourth and would enhance his status even further.

If Spieth claims the Wanamaker Trophy that goes to PGA Championship the winner of this event, he would have completed all four major titles at the age of 24. He would beat Tiger Woods to that accomplishment by eight months.

The event will get underway when Grayson Murray, Rich Berberian Jr., and Peter Uihlein tee off from the first tee at 7:20 a.m. ET Thursday morning. Five minutes later, Shane Lowry, Stuart Deane, and Pablo Larrazabal will tee off from the 10th tee.

The Thursday and Friday rounds of the PGA will be PGA Championship televised by TNT from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. That network will also televise the early parts of the Saturday and Sunday rounds, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. CBS will take over at that point and remain on the air from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m.

The tournament can be live-streamed at the PGA Championship website.

In addition to Woods, the other golfers who have won all four legs of the career grand slam include Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.

Arnold Palmer came close by winning three legs, PGA Championship but he was never able to earn the PGA Championship crown. In addition to the King, Walter Hagen, Jim Barnes, Lee Trevino, Tommy Armour, Sam Snead, Harold Hilton, Byron Nelson, Raymond Floyd and Tom Watson won three of the four majors.

Watson is the only one of that group, besides Palmer, who was stifled at the PGA Championship.

Spieth has won three tournaments this year, but he is the +850 second choice in the event, according to OddsShark. Rory McIlroy comes in at odds of +700 and is the favorite.

Here’s a look at the leading contenders for this year’s PGA Championship.

Picks

Is Jordan Spieth good enough to win the career Grand Slam? It certainly seems that he is a deserving candidate.

After losing the lead in the final round of the British Open to Matt Kuchar on the back nine, he came roaring back to win the Claret Jug when a lesser player might have folded.

Joining the elite company that he would find himself in by winning the Wanamaker Trophy creates quite a bit of pressure. Spieth has proved he can play under difficult circumstances, but winning back-to-back majors seems too much to ask.

On the other hand, McIlroy started to hit the ball extremely well at the British Open, and he might have been the one pushing Spieth if he had played well in the first round. He didn’t do that, but he played well in the rest of the tournament which should set him up for an excellent run at the PGA.

Jason Day won the PGA Championship two years ago at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, and he looked like the best player in the world at that point. It is time for the Australian to find his groove again.

However, we like Dustin Johnson to come through with a huge performance in this year’s final major. He won three tournaments in a row earlier in the year, and it appeared he would dominate the Masters because he was so hot at the time.

He could not even compete in that event, though, after suffering a fall days before the tee off. However, he will be at his best at Quail Hollow to win the second major of his career.

US Open Golf 2017

The 2017 U.S. Open will tee off in Wisconsin at Erin Hills for the first time in 117 years. Tee times will begin Thursday, June 15, and run through Father’s Day weekend finishing on Sunday, June 18.

Erin Hills is the first U.S. Open course played at a par 72 since the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

The course is set to measure up as the longest walk in major championship history at 7,693 yards, depending on the day. Erin Hills has both traditional elements and modern challenges on the wide-open course of rolling hills with almost no obstruction from trees. The course does feature a number of blind shots and altering terrain to provide an extra challenge if the course length isn’t enough to test the field during golf’s second major championship.  HDQ LIVE FREE

The U.S. Open has a mixed field of veterans, young professionals, amateurs and some long-shot qualifiers who will provide interesting rounds of play early on.

Phil Mickelson originally announced he would miss the U.S. Open to attend his daughter’s graduation. However, with the scheduling and a little help from the weather, Mickelson might just make his tee time set for Thursday afternoon.

Early favorites to watch include defending champ Dustin Johnson, who has the power to do well on the long, grueling course. Johnson looks to be the first to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. Also in his group are recent U.S. Open champs Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer.

The last three Masters champions are also grouped together with Bubba Watson, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia teeing off Thursday afternoon.

Here are the full tee times for the first two rounds of the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills and the TV schedule, including how to live-stream online.
