After a very damp Saturday, the clouds are clearing to give us a scorcher of a PGA Championship final round at Oak Hill

There are a few things we know about this Major Sunday at the PGA Championship:

  1. We've got a cracker of a final day ahead at Oak Hill.
  2. Justin Thomas and Phil Mickelson won't defend their PGA Championship titles.
  3. PGA Professional Michael Block will go down in PGA Championship history as a total legend.

A Superstar cast and warmer weather

The sun is set to shine on the final day of the PGA Championship and we have an all-star cast in contention to take home the second men's Major of the season. Here's what the top seven players had to say about the final round:

Brooks Koepka (-6)

"It would mean a lot. I think a major championship would mean a lot to anybody. So yeah, to win one would be fantastic. I mean, I was just told that I think only Tiger and Jack have won three, so that would be pretty special to be in a list or category with them. Just got to go out and go play good tomorrow."

Viktor Hovland (-5)

"It will be a cool experience. Any chance you have to play in the final group in a Sunday on a major, that's pretty special.

"The mindset is just going to be, I play my own game, and obviously I want to win, but I am just going to play what I think is the right play on every single shot, and if I get beat, I get beat, but the plan is to not give it away."

Corey Conners (-5)

"I played solid the last few days, so just trying to do more of the same and have some fun out there and play with freedom."

Bryson Dechambeau (-3)

"Well, it's every part of it. It's driving it well, iron playing it well and making a lot of putts. So if that narrows it down. The whole game has to be on par to win a major championship. Subpar, actually. It's got to be better than par."

Justin Rose (-2)

"It definitely is my MO, I suppose. Definitely won on tough golf courses historically, and I think it's more -- not necessarily I hit the ball any better on these types of golf courses, I just think I manage my game a bit better. I kind of know what's required and maybe stay a little bit more patient and understand the test that is required to play these courses well."

Scottie Scheffler (-2)

"I feel like I've hung in there the last three days to give myself a chance going into Sunday. I haven't felt a hundred percent with my swing. Going into tomorrow, I felt like I started to drive the ball well on the back nine, and hitting the fairways is going to be extremely important in terms of trying to make a run at the guys on top of the leaderboard tomorrow."

Rory McIlroy (-1)

"I'd obviously like to be a couple of shots closer to the lead. With how I've felt this week, if you had told me on Thursday night that I'd be going into Sunday in the top five and with a realistic chance to win this golf tournament, I would have taken it."

No title defence

Justin Thomas may have come from seven shots behind at Southern Hills in 2022, but this year will be too much of an ask as he sits at 10-over-par and a tie for 67th.

His final round pairing is an interesting one though as he'll be playing with 2021 PGA Champion Phil Mickelson. As Mickelson didn't defend his title last year, it was sort of a double defense this year.

Mickelson had a fantastic final round at The Masters last month but even shooting the round of the day at Oak Hill, he won't be vying for the Wanamaker Trophy.

We love Michael Block

It's safe to say that at the start of this week, most golf fans will never have known the name Michael Block. But the Head PGA Professional at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in California has been capturing all the headlines. Not just for making the cut but doing it style, going into the weekend tied for 10th at even-par.

On a very damp Saturday, the fans were out in force to support him and some of the loudest cheers came for the 46-year-old as he shot a third round of 70 to go into Sunday tied eighth playing with World number three Rory McIlroy.

The Southern California PGA Player of the Year nine of the last 10 years, has had a whirlwind week and is enjoying every moment:

"I'm a PGA member that loves the game more than anything, and I'm sitting here right now absolutely blown away by this experience, but at the same time I'm blown away by how my game has actually shown up. My game that I've always had."

On Saturday he played with England's Justin Rose and he spoke about the experience after his round:

"World-class human, world-class golfer. Mr. McGinley talked about it last night on the television coverage how he would take me under the wing and take care of me, and he did. He was fantastic. Rosey and his caddie were fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better pairing."

But how did he cope playing with a golfer he admires:

"I didn't look at Rosey's face for the first three holes because I'm a big fan of Rosey and I've watched him my whole life, and I knew it could get a little too intimidating, the fact that, holy crap, I'm sitting here playing with Justin Rose, and that might get too big for me, so I literally just kind of looked down, looked at his shoes the first couple holes, and got off to a decent start and went on from there."

Michael Block is living every golf fan's dream and we can't wait to watch his final round.

The scene is set, the weather is going to be in the player's favour and there's nothing better than seeing the best players in the world battling it out for Major glory - bring it on!
