The Weekly Steemit Scramble Contest
August 10 – 13, 2017
Quail Hollow – Charlotte, North Carolina
The PGA Tour heads to North Carolina for the final major of the season – the PGA Championship, hosted by the Quail Hollow Club. The PGA Championship will be played on the 7600-yard, par-71 course at Quail Hollow, which is hosting the event for the first time. The defending champion is Jimmy Walker, who shot a -14 to beat Jason Day by one stroke and claimed the $1.8 million prize. Walker and Day will be in the field for this year’s tournament. However, Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win the tournament, having won at Quail Hollow twice – and he also holds the course record.
The current weather forecast for Charlotte has high temperatures in the 80s with rain and thunderstorms on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
