1 Jordan Spieth Jordan Spieth -
Not Hogan level of focus, but Tiger with three major wins in the same year level. Both Opens and Straits course with similar grasses.
2 Jason Day Jason Day -
▲ 10
Canadian win paves the way for winning finish. T28, T9, T4 in first three majors. Is T1 next? Final day 74 cost him in 2010.
3 Bubba Watson Bubba Watson -
▲ 7
Six top 10s and two wins in 2015. Under par all four days in 2010 at PGA. MCs in the last two majors.
4 Rickie Fowler Rickie Fowler -
▲ 5
Players win and Scottish win double his prior career total. Stumbled early final day at Quicken. No top 10s and one MC at first three majors.
5 Dustin Johnson Dustin Johnson -
▼ 2
One bunker away from winning in Wisconsin in 2010. Does he really not suffer hangover from disappointing losses? Final hole collapse at Chambers Bay; final weekend collapse at St. Andrews.
6 Louis Oosthuizen Louis Oosthuizen -
▼ 4
Two strokes shy of going for his third straight major. 71-75 MC at the Straits in 2010.
7 Zach Johnson Zach Johnson -
▲ 10
Rory doubled the last two majors a year ago. Padraig Harrington doubled them in 2009. Can be done. Johnson was a stroke shy of the playoff in 2010.
8 Martin Kaymer Martin Kaymer -
▲ 11
Lifted the Wannamaker in Wisconsin in 2010. One top 10 and four MCs in 2015. Played well at St. Andrews – T12.
9 Justin Rose Justin Rose -
▼ 5
T2 at the Masters, T6 at St. Andrews, MC at Chambers Bay. Six top 10s and a win in 2015. 74-74 at 2010 PGA.
10 Henrik Stenson Henrik Stenson -
▼ 4
Never really found his stride after early season physical problems. Only three starts the entire summer. No top 10s since March.
11 Adam Scott Adam Scott -
Last chance to win a major anchored on the greens. Strong final days at both Opens with top 10s in each. Only broke par once in 2010.
12 Jim Furyk Jim Furyk -
▲ 4
One win in 2015. Poor major performances with MC at the Masters. Fourth round 77 destroyed his chances in 2010.
13 Marc Leishman Marc Leishman -
▼ 13
Never a factor in St. Andrews playoff. Wife’s recovery was the Aussie’s biggest win of the year.
14 Sergio Garcia Sergio Garcia -
▼ 6
Owns outright “best player never to win a major” title. Feast or famine at the PGA – six MCs, including 2010; four top 10s including a second, a T2 and T3.
15 Jimmy Walker Jimmy Walker -
▼ 15
Needs a fall/winter move of a major. For a Texan, summer is not his best season. Only his fourth PGA. T7 a year ago at Valhalla.
16 Hideki Matsuyama Hideki Matsuyama -
▲ 7
Only Asian major winner at the PGA, Y. E. Yang in 2009. Top 20 in first three majors, fifth at the Masters. Only his third PGA.
17 Phil Mickelson Phil Mickelson -
▼ 4
Passed by Rory on the final nine at Valhalla in 2014. Second-place finish was his only PGA top 10 in the last six years.
18 Justin Thomas Justin Thomas -
▼ 18
Making his major championship debut. Top 10 in his last two Tour stops. Has shown some Sunday hiccups in his first time round the block.
19 David Lingmerth David Lingmerth -
▲ 6
After four MCs in a five-tournament stretch, a win and two additional top 10s. St. Andrews was his major championship maiden voyage.
20 Jason Dufner Jason Dufner -
▼ 20
Under par the final three days in 2010, T5. Game appears to be coming back, but still needs to conquer the course from five feet in.
21 Tiger Woods Tiger Woods -
▼ 1
Whistling Straits was not a good fit in 2004 when he was on top, T24 and again in a struggling 2010, T28. More major MCs (2) in 2015 than total in the first 12 years of his career. If he can get it close, he can threaten. Ninety percent plus from 10 and in.
22 Rory McIlroy Rory McIlroy -
▼ 22
Even if he makes it to the start in Kohler it will be with no play since the ankle injury. Two PGA wins makes him a threat if he shows. Was in it in 2010 for 70 holes T3.
23 Matt Kuchar Matt Kuchar -
▼ 23
Halfway leader in 2010. Only two top 10s since January; none in the majors.
24 Brooks Koepka Brooks Koepka -
▼ 24
Ten top 20s and a win in 2015. Only his third PGA Championship. Has played more tournaments in Europe than his native US.
25 Kevin Na Kevin Na -
▼ 25
Promising spring but mediocre summer so far in 2015. Only career top 10 in a major was T10 to Keegan Bradley in Atlanta in 2011.
