Rory McIlroy's bid fades as cool Hideki Matsuyama takes crown

The serious amounts of rainfall that turned Quail Hollow into something of a slopfest yesterday will only have added to the gleam in his eye.

"In weighing the complex evolution of the golf calendar, the PGA of America's key objectives were to promote the best interests of our signature spectator Championship, do what is best for the game and its great players and find the most advantageous platform to fulfil our mission of serving our almost 29,000 PGA professionals and growing the game", PGA of America chief executive officer Pete Bevacqua said. "This sounds bad but I'm trying to get this week out of the way before I start to think about that".

"So, hopefully I will start a little better this week but even if I don't, I know from what I did at the Open after an average start".

But among the four wins is a playoff victory at Quail Hollow over Rory McIlroy in 2012 - Fowler's first win.

"I'm definitely not going out there to try to prove anything to anyone".

"It's kind of a home game for me".

Rory McIlroy: As has been discussed ad nauseam, McIlroy owns this course, owns this tournament and has found his form.

The PGA Tour hasn't announced an official date for the 2019 Players but they're targeting Mid-March.

The players have been universally in favor of the schedule change. 'A May date for the PGA is a really good thing.

Asked about being a 7/1 favourite this week, as opposed to a 20/1 shot at last month's Open, McIlroy joked: 'I told you those odds wouldn't last long'. "When you think about the major metropolitan NY area, the tri-state area, we did a long analysis of the Bethpages and Baltusrols and other great home sites for the PGA Championship", said Pete Bevacqua, the PGA's CEO.
