PGA Championship: First round tee off

"I've definitely become a little more rotational in my swing over the past couple of years, and some of that is through bad habit and some of that is through injury", he said, adding that the only major he feels he had a real chance to win since 2014 was The Open at Carnoustie last month.

Fleetwood has four victories on the European Tour and was crowned its number one player in 2017, when he won the season-long Race to Dubai.

"I was scripted to wear a dark blue shirt, so luckily I had a version of yellowish and I'm happy (I) could support Jarrod", Fowler said.

Fleetwood played with eventual champion Justin Thomas in his opening two rounds at Quail Hollow a year ago and says he learned "a few things" from watching the American on the way to his first major title.

Jim Nantz has anchored the PGA Championship broadcast since 1991.

Three different golfers - Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari - have claimed the first three majors of the year, so golf's fourth and final major is as wide-open as ever.

"He's a buddy, but he's not there anymore and he's never going to come back", said Day, who used to live close to Lyle in Orlando, Florida.

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough".

"And as the year has progressed, I've learned some of those things. I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it has counted".

"So I've done well, I'm slowly getting back up the world rankings".

"Having had a few goes at it, I think less expectations is better", McIlroy said.

Woods has not played the PGA since 2015 at Whistling Straits, where he missed the cut.

The field, like it is at every major, is loaded with star power.

Eleven Sports have the rights for the event this year, so if you are looking to the BBC, Sky Sports of BT Sport for your golf action then you will not find it.

Even Woods will have to re-learn have to win Majors and McIlroy is nothing but impressed by the 14-time Major winner's recovery from injury. And while Gramps has been there for many of his career-defining moments, there are many distant relatives that will get to see him compete for the first time this week.

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more".

"Hopefully, I'll have a couple of majors by the end of my career when I'm done".
