The PGA Championship has arrived and the best in the world will tee off from Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky. And with that, the cream of the crop will make their way onto the lauded leaderboard, which was dominated early by Xander Schauffele.

Scottie Scheffler enters as the odds favorite to take yet another major, with Rory McIlroy not far behind in expected leaders for the weekend. McIlroy comes in with great form, notching a win at the Wells Fargo Championship. You also can’t count out Brooks Koepka who is hoping to again hoist the Wanamaker trophy.
