@PGATourBrunch Coverage of Round 1 of PGA at Southern Hills
TULSA - For the second consecutive year, K.H. Lee is entering the PGA Championship having won the previous week's AT&T Byron Nelson. The last player to win a major and the previous tournament before the major was Rory McIlroy in 2014 (WGC-Bridgestone, PGA Championship).
Five players are making their first major championship appearance of their careers, including three PGA Tour members (denoted by an asterisk): Kramer Hickok*, Sadom Kaewkanjana, Jinichiro Kozuma, Chad Ramey* and Adam Schenk*. Both Hickok and Schenk qualified for the field as alternates.
Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy have each recorded two PGA Championship titles and four major championship victories. Only five players in history have won the PGA Championship three times or more: Jack Nicklaus (5), Walter Hagen (5), Tiger Woods (4), Sam Snead (3) and Gene Sarazen (3). 19 have won five or more majors (last player to reach that mark: Phil Mickelson).
World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler has 2,842 FedExCup points, the sixth-highest total during the FedExCup Regular Season since the points format changed in 2009. With a win, he would move to second-highest (3,442), trailing Jordan Spieth in 2014-15 (4,169).
