The first major of the reshuffled 2019/20 major season is almost upon us.

The 102nd edition of the US PGA Championship – which had originally been scheduled for May 14-17 – will take place at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco from August 6-9. 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no fans allowed on site as Brooks Koepka attempts to become the first player in the strokeplay era of the event to win the Wanamaker trophy three years on the bounce. Indeed, not since Walter Hagen in the 1920s has a player managed that feat. 

Out to stop Koepka will be one of the strongest fields in the game, including 15 other players whose names are on the iconic piece of silverware.
