Lower Springfield, New Jersey – As the 2016 PGA Championship begins, it’s amazing how much the golf landscape has changed in the past year.

Twelve months ago, when hype about golf’s so called big three was at it’s height, a 2016 without a major victory by Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy or Jason Day would have seemed impossible. But as the world’s best players arrive arrive at the Baltusrol Golf Club for the 2016 PGA Championship, that possibility seems more like a probability.

All three have failed to get the job done for a variety of reasons. Spieth, never the tour’s best ball striker has struggled to hit fairways and greens, making his best weapon, his putter, all but irrelevant.  McIlroy has the opposite problem, leading the tour in strokes gained off the tee, but struggling mightily on the short grass. Day has been the best and most consistent of the three, but hasn’t been able to get the job done when it counts the most. Now struck by family and personal illness this week, his chances of defending his title seem remote.

To add insult to injury. the “Big Three” has been infiltrated by American Dustin Johnson, who not only has cracked the Top three in the Official World Golf Rankings, but can take over the number one spot this week with a victory at Baltusrol.

Here’s the 411 as you get ready for the 2016 PGA Championship.
