Can Spieth Set PGA History? [VIDEO]
On the eve of golf's 4th major of 2017, the PGA Championship, there are multiple stories coming from the golf scene. They include Jordan Spieth trying to become the youngest player ever to win the career Grand Slam. Tiger Woods pleading guilty to reckless driving and agreeing to enter a diversion program following his DUI arrest. And, the PGA Championship itself is in the news because the event will move from August to May starting in 2019.
For Spieth, winning the PGA this weekend at age 24 would give him a victory in all four Majors. Not only would he be the youngest to do it, Spieth would join a select list who have done it. Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen and Tiger Woods.
Spieth will tee off at 8:25am tomorrow in the first round at Quail Hollow in North Carolina.
As for moving the PGA Championship on the golf calendar, the new date will be the week before Memorial Day weekend, starting in 2019. That means the four Majors will be...The Masters in April, the PGA Championship in May, the U.S. Open Championship in June and the British Open Championship in July.
