THE PLAYERS moves back to March: What you need to know

"I've been approached from a lot of different areas", McIlroy said.

In measuring the prowess of athletes of any sport, there can be a thin, fine line between very good and great.

McIlroy will once again have best friend Harry Diamond as his caddie, with a decision still to be made on who will take control of the bag on a permanent basis. The reigning Asian Tour number one fired a sparkling 63 in the penultimate round before finishing tied 10th place following a final round 73 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week.

"It was only two weeks ago that I was able to get the third leg. and I'm so happy (that) I can't add pressure to this week", Spieth said. Vijay and I have been working the past couple of weeks on new practice and attitude techniques.

An upbeat Lahiri, who has his Bengaluru-based coach, Vijay Divecha with him this week, said,"It is always nice to come back to a venue, where I have some playing experience". How about the fact that before the 99th PGA Championship officially got underway on Thursday, PGA of America officials had all but guaranteed they'll be bringing the event back to the Queen City course.

"The British, I won without really feeling like I was putting well at all".

Like Spieth, he birdied the seventh and eighth holes to cap off a powerful display for a 68 on a course that was getting harder by the minute as the greens dried out under a baking sun.

It's a course Rory McIlroy loves, he's won there twice and holds the course record, so he starts as bookies' favourite ahead of Jordan Spieth. Anirban Lahiri previously has recorded the best ever finish for an Indian golfer at the PGA Championships in 2015 when he finished fifth.




"One of the bigger regrets that I've had in golf", Spieth said.

"Last week I really enjoyed myself with Harry", he said.

Every year since 1972, the PGA has been last on the schedule of majors. It has been a bit of a transitional year. "I just don't feel it". My health is pretty much where it needs to be. We went back and looked at courses that hosted their first majors since 1990 and offered a breakdown of how their debut went.

"I believe I'm going to have plenty of chances, and I'm young enough to believe in my abilities that it will happen at some point".

McIlroy addressed the media in the immediate aftermath of the PGA of America confirming news as revealed by the Guardian last November that this tournament will revert to a slot in the month of May from 2019.

But they have been an integral part of the PGA Championship since its start in 1916, and perhaps even more so since the tour players broke away in 1969 to form what is now the PGA Tour. "You do think whatever happens, I've already won the Masters and it's awesome", Garcia said.

"Collectively, these moves should be a good thing for the game of golf, and I am supportive of anything that benefits our game and at any level", Nicklaus said.
