The attention of the golf world is on the San Francisco area for this rescheduled, back-to-August edition of the PGA Championship that is set to include 95 of the top 100 players in the Official World Golf Rankings along with 20 PGA of America professionals from across the country. We've all experienced a bit of a wait over the past four months for major-championship golf, but the first -- and lone -- major of 2019-20 season is finally here as TPC Harding Park readies to see the best in the world tee off Thursday morning.

Tiger Woods plays just his second event back amid the coronavirus pandemic delaying the season as he looks to win his 16th major championship and 83rd PGA Tour event, which would break the tie for first with Sam Snead and make him the winningest player in tour history. The other headlines for the event are plentiful, even without considering the absence of fans or the change in date amid the coronavirus.
Two-time winner Brooks Koepka is chasing history to become the first player to win three straight since Walter Hagen captured four straight in the 1920s. Jordan Spieth is chasing the career grand slam. And because of the shifts in the PGA Tour schedule, the PGA Championship is the penultimate event before the beginning of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
All of these storylines and more -- including Bryson DeChambeau's first major since bulking up, Jon Rahm looking to reclaim the No. 1 ranking in the world and newly-minuted No. 1 Justin Thomas adding a second Wanamaker Trophy to his rapidly expanding trophy case -- will converge when the action gets underway on Thursday.
The first round has opened with plenty of low numbers. Jason Day is the leader in the clubhouse at 5 under, while Xander Schauffele, Zach Johnson and Brooks Koepka are in a group just one shot back of him through their first 18 holes.
