PGA Championship leaderboard LIVE: Updates as Mickelson retakes lead from Koepka

Collin Morikawa will defend The Wanamaker Trophy this weekend at the PGA Championship. Rory McIlroy heads into the second major of the year as strong favourite though following his win at Quail Hollow earlier this month.

Kiawah Island was also the scene of McIlroy’s famous PGA Championship victory back in 2012.

He demolished the field by eight shots on that occasion but has not won a major since 2014.

But McIlroy doesn’t think his previous performance on the Ocean Course will give him an advantage over the field.

“It’s a really tough test, especially when the wind is blowing like this,” said the 32-year-old.

“Those last few holes out there are brutal.

“I played great here last time and won my first PGA and my second major, but just because I did that doesn’t mean that I’m going to find it any easier this week than anyone else.

“I’ve maybe got some better memories and better vibes here than most of the other guys do, and that’s obviously nice, but not sure it’s going to enable me to play any better.”
