Tiger Woods will be hoping to clinch his fifth PGA Championship title at the TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California, USA between 3-9 August.
The American superstar is one of the most decorated golfers in the history of the tournament having won four titles. 
Woods will have an opportunity to win his fifth trophy this year and join American legends Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen on the record books.
Nicklaus and Wagen hold the record for the most PGA Championship titles - having won the golf major five times. 
Woods' compatriot Brooks Koepka is the defending champion having won the PGA Championship title in the last two years.
Koepka held off a Sunday charge from Woods to capture his first PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in 2018. 
Woods will be keen to lift the coveted trophy for the first time since 2007 having won two back-to-back titles between 2006 and 2007.
Hagen holds the record as the only player to win the PGA Championship not just three but four consecutive times.

Woods has shifted his attention to the PGA Championship after missing this year's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
“Disappointed to miss [2020] WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational," Woods said on Twitter. 
"But doing what I think is best to prepare me for the PGA Championship and upcoming FedEx Cup Playoffs."
The 2020 PGA Championship offers an $11 million purse with a winner's share of $1.98 million.
