Justin Thomas will be looking to successfully defend his title and heads into the tournament in great form after winning the WGC-Bridgestone at Firestone in Akron, Ohio.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson also enjoyed a strong tournament at Firestone and should be among the contenders.

There are some pretty tasty threesomes to watch out for the opening day. Thomas, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will be the group to watch, while the winners of this season"s three majors, Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari, have also been drawn together.

Predictions

Thomas is the man to beat at Bellerive, as he brings huge momentum into the tournament. The 25-year-old coasted to a four-shot win last time out, and his game looks in peak condition.

He"s already won three titles this year and will not lack for confidence as he aims to lift the second major title of his career.


The field will need to be wary of Thomas, although he will also know the PGA Championship can be unpredictable. The winner often comes out of nowhere, but if it comes down to form, then Thomas is in great shape.

McIlroy is one of the many big names who has previously won this title, and there"s a feeling he"s long overdue another major.

The Northern Irishman has now gone four years without enjoying success in one of golf"s biggest tournaments, since his last victory at the 2014 PGA Championship.

McIlroy finished two shots behind Francesco Molinari at the 2018 British Open and will hope he can rediscover his winning touch at Bellerive.

He has explained how this tournament suits him:

McIlroy will need to step it up if he is to end a frustrating spell and finally capture his fifth major, but he could be a real contender at this year"s tournament.

Of course, all eyes will be on Tiger Woods once again as he continues his comeback and makes his first appearance at this tournament in three years.

The American"s preparations have been disrupted by bad weather in Missouri. He has also said he "spent a few times in the ice bath just trying to get some inflammation down," per the Guardian"s Ewan Murray.

Victory at the tournament would give Woods an automatic place in the American Ryder Cup team, but it looks a long shot, as he"s yet to win since returning from back surgery.
