Now the four majors will take place in April (the Masters), May, June (the U.S. Open), and July (the Open Championship), rather than cramming the last three of them into a seven-week stretch in the height of summer.

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.

"You look at Jack Nicklaus, he went through a stretch where he didn't win a major in three years", McIlroy said after tying for fourth at Royal Birkdale. That leads Jordan Spieth at 8-1, Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama (12-1), and Rickie Fowler (15-1).

McIlroy nearly feels like he can roll out of bed and play well at Quail Hollow. Grand Slam: Jordan Spieth can become the sixth - and youngest - player with the career Grand Slam.

An official announcement is expected at this week's PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

Our analysis began in 2013 and included an extensive list of factors, including having to shift the date every four years to accommodate the Olympic Games.

The PGA Tour also wins with this new calendar as it will now move the FedEx Cup playoffs back to finish by Labour Day. The Golden Bear triumphed in each of his sport's premier strokeplay events at least three times and was only 26 when he secured victory in the 1966 Open Championship at Muirfield to complete his first Grand Slam.

9 - the record margin under par for a round at the championship.

There is no specific date yet, although the European Tour have said that the new September BMW PGA Championship will be "central to a strong and robust end of season schedule".

Open champion Spieth was quick to brand McIlroy the favourite after playing with him for the first two rounds of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron.

"The problem was, I wasn't driving it very well, so I just didn't get many opportunities to hit wedge from the fairway", he added. "I'm thrilled to see Charlotte have a light shining on it (this) week". "He can be the favorite". But for the other 30-odd weeks a year, everyone's still talking about it.

Jason Day finished 2016 as the world's top ranked golfer, but has since fallen to #7.

Five of the six Australians who teed up in Akron will be at Quail Hollow next week and four of those five will take some confidence from their play this week. Phil Mickelson hasn't won a tournament since 2013, which is why the 47-year-old is at 40-1 in Las Vegas. Especially with Presidents Cup and The Ryder Cup now obviously every year, I think it just gives - especially the American guys who have to play a team event every year, as well - it just gives them just a little bit more time.
