Rory McIlroy’s 2016 PGA Championship has just begun. The four-time major winner is playing with Jason Day and Phil Mickelson, one of the featured groups from the day’s proceedings.

This is set to be the strongest field in Major Championship history, with many predicting a 5th successive first-time major winner. Baltusrol is playing long, at 7,460 yards it will favour big hitters who can attack the long par fours – with just two par fives it is playing as a par 70. The par 5 17th measures a colossal 650-yards, something that even Bubba Watson struggled to overcome. Just one man has hit the green in two, and he’ll be playing in his 23rd PGA Championship this year.
