This is my interview with Henrik Stenson after he finished T3 at the PGA Championship…

I had a running joke with Stenson all week about how I backed him (it was quite a bit of cash for me) at the Open Championship and how he should’ve played that well at Hoylake instead of at Valhalla.

At the start of our chat above — if you listen closely — you can hear me giving him a hard time and his pithy response.

The world no. 1 only played nine holes, but he went out of his way to partake in the festivities, before calling it a day. (He was also knowledgeable about the historical significance of the event.)

All eyes will be on world no. 2 and Champion Golfer of the Year, Rory McIlroy

The top 100 players in the Official World Golf Ranking have all committed to play in the 96th PGA Championship, held at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, August 7-10, according to the PGA of America on Tuesday. With the exception of any withdrawals prior to the first round, it would be the first time any major championship would feature each of the top 100 world-ranked golfers.
