WATCH: New Rory McIlroy commercial will get you in the mood

Rory McIlroy’s 2016 PGA Championship has just begun. The four-time major winner is playing with Jason Day and Phil Mickelson, one of the featured groups from the day’s proceedings.

Rory and Nike usually release something on the eve of a Major Championship: Some good, some bad, some terrible.

This is set to be the strongest field in Major Championship history, with many predicting a 5th successive first-time major winner. Baltusrol is playing long, at 7,460 yards it will favour big hitters who can attack the long par fours – with just two par fives it is playing as a par 70. The par 5 17th measures a colossal 650-yards, something that even Bubba Watson struggled to overcome. Just one man has hit the green in two, and he’ll be playing in his 23rd PGA Championship this year.
