PGA Championship Moves to May

Spectators line and cross the first fairway Changing times as golfing calendar gets a 'major' shake-up

Queenslander Day is the first to admit he hasn't been up to scratch so far in 2017, a runner up finish at the AT & T Byron Nelson and T5 result at Pebble Beach the highlights of a lean season so far.

Koepka really seemed to get into the flow of things on the front nine - his back nine - where he snagged four of his five birdies on the day. "The first hole, got off to a awful [start], I missed a four-footer, and that was kind of my day, it kind of felt like".

"I felt bad about it", Koepka said, although he had not shouted the traditional warning of "fore" following his drive.

"I did a great job and holed some great putts for pars".

"If I would have shot one over and didn't strike it well and everything was average, it would have been fine".

"Unfortunately, this year, my short game has been pretty poor". I was able to spend a lot of time with grandkids and got re-focused.

The speed of the greens at Quail Hollow have already become a talking point and Koepka, who was happy with his round, found it hard.

The PGA Championship venue has three completely new holes, 18 re-grassed greens and dozens of more subtle changes from the course that previous year hosted a PGA Tour event. "They seem very dry and fast at the moment", said the 37-year-old Australian, one of only a few players who did not take the opportunity to play his practice round in shorts under the tournament's new relaxed dress guideline. You're up at night thinking, 'OK, what do I need to do to get back to that winning form?' His world ranking has dropped from No. 86 to No. 108.

"That's the thing. You can't write yourself off, ever". Never feel like you're out of the hole.

He will return home to Queensland next week for the birth of his second child and will skip the tour's first two playoff events, which means he is unlikely to qualify for the final two.

"I'll give you an example I had 72 yards from my second shot on the eighth hole, I walked up to it and I had nowhere really to land my second shot - maybe two or three yards to land it with a pitch shot".

Daly left Quail Hollow without speaking to reporters but did tell his fiancee that he wanted to "get out of here", using a profanity to express his frustration with the course. I'm excited about this week.
