It's entirely possible that the tournament will devolve into a bomb-and-gouge-fest, hammering drives off the tee and wedging shots into the green hole after hole, but the narrow fairways ought to keep at least some of the players honest.
With the 100th PGA Championship kicking off Thursday, it's time to get the answer to those questions and check out the five golfers with the best chance to lift the Wanamaker Trophy.
Haigh said about 1 1/2 inches fell during Tuesday's storm. Molinari though‚ who is not one of the longest players on tour‚ but who played the weekend at Carnoustie on his way to the Open title without a bogey‚ is not buying it.
"It's stressful", Furyk said Wednesday.
And Spieth is determined not to be distracted by the potential career Grand Slam, saying: "I think I was probably a little more anxious previous year [at Quail Hollow in Charlotte]".
He fought back to finish second, but he admits the collapse "haunted" him for a long time. He played in the final group at the Masters, at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and last week at the Bridgestone Invitational. Now, Woods must "get the mindset back prior to all the injuries and all the surgeries". He's right where he needs to be and is ready to go and make a name for himself. 9, 10 and 11 played. Not even he knows.
Since St. Louis is home to Anheuser-Busch, the world's largest brewer, we had to include a commemorative PGA Championship growler, which you could use to fill up with local flavor at one of the city's numerous breweries.

"It's great to win one and be classed as a major champion, but I want to do it multiple times in my career".
Last month's Open Championship at Carnoustie provided the latest glimpse into Spieth's brilliance and flaws.
Some years, the setup itself becomes the tournament's dominant story. As we break each play down, I will be sure to specify which type of contests I am targeting that player in.
"It will be fascinating to duel with Woods", Thomas said.
"I don't like to be up here".
Defending champion Thomas agreed there would be plenty of low scores, but warned the course was not exactly a pushover. 16, 17 and 18 holes at Bellerive. "Our goal is to resolve that and come to a conclusion as quickly as possible", he added. "And we've just been camped out there".
The first eight on the points list make the team.

Fleetwood hopes it's just a coincidence, that the third round is when the putts stop falling. But it has come after really hot Fridays. "If you don't, you'll see the field get separated pretty quickly".
"And hopefully, it doesn't last for too long", he said. He finished in a tie for second at the Player's Championship and has two other top 10s.

"You can really go anywhere in the country in May and have an opportunity to play".
