The PGA Championship (https://www.yourgolftravel.com/pgachampionship) is taking place this week at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. As one of the top rated courses on The PGA Tour this event brings with it a slightly different feel, courtesy of its past holding of the Wells Fargo Championship. With the likes of Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler amongst those who have previously won on this course, there have been plenty of predictions on who will claim the trophy this week.

Here YGT Rory talks through who he thinks will claim the trophy as well as the interesting developments including it’s broadcasting on The BBC as well as the potential for a “Spieth Slam” as Jordan looks to add to his 3 Major wins already claimed in The Masters, US Open and most recently The Open at Royal Birkdale.

Mark Crossfield – check out his channel here – youtube.com/4golfonline – offers an interesting insight into the tournaments identity and where it will go in future years. With news that the date has changed moving forward to May this event will take on a different look and feel as it becomes something very much in the middle of the golfing season rather than at the end.
