Expectations from Rory McIlroy are higher than ever this time, considering he has the best record in this arena.
This is where McIlroy won his first PGA Tour event in 2010 when he fearlessly fired a 4-iron into the breeze and over the water to six feet for an eagle that allowed him to make the cut on the number, and then he followed with a 66-62 weekend. Coming into the tournament with good form behind him, its hard to look past McIlroy at PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.
However, there will no doubt be many contenders that McIlroy would have to outdo.
McIlroy isn't the only player trying to make sure the year doesn't end without him winning a major. Dustin Johnson looked good enough to win them all until he slipped down the stairs and wrenched his back on the eve of the Masters.
Johnson believes his game is close to where it was before the injury. What separates him from McIlroy is Quail Hollow. Johnson, who will stay at No 1 regardless of what happens this week, has played Quail Hollow only three times, and not since 2011.
Another player who could come between McIlroy and a title at Quail Hollow is Jordan Spieth, who is going for a career Grand Slam at the PGA Championship, having recently won the British Open.
