US PGA championship: Who will claim the victory in the final major tournament of 2016


The US PGA championship is finally here and everybody will be looking to finish the ongoing season on a high. The Championship will be held on the Historic Baltusrol Golf Club, New Jersey after a long wait of 11 years.

The championship is just held two weeks after the British major, the open due the upcoming Olympic event that has introduced golf once again after almost 112 years. This year’s US PGA Championship will be all exciting to watch as there is nobody who has a clear shot at claiming the Championship as because this season has seen many ups and down

Tiger Woods to return

The Championship will have almost every top player from the golf scene as because most of the players have parted their way from Rio Olympics due to the ZIKA virus issue. The biggest speculation for this championship is that whether Tiger Woods will be finally marking his comeback or not. He has missed almost every tour this season including all three majors due to a back problem but there are rumors that he is fully fit and the four-time champion can be back to the Golf scene.

Phil Mickelson: A huge challenge for Jason Day

Jason Day was brilliant last years as he claimed the championship and continued his excellence run in the year 2016 too by retaining the number one spot in golf ranking but the current performances of the Australian have been bit disappointing which means things will be very tougher for him at Baltusrol as he looks to defend the title and the biggest obstacle that stands in his way is the veteran Phil Mickelson.

The class apart veteran was brilliant with his antics as he missed the lowest total score by a few feet at the Royal Troon. He was the winner of US PGA championship last time around when it was held at Baltusrol Golf Club in 2005.

There are many players that are running for the championship and have proved their credentials from time to time. The most prominent name among the others is of Sweden’s very own Henrik Stenson who was impressive in his last few days at the royal Troon.
