As the first major championship of the 2020 season, the PGA Championship will be played without spectator attendance, in accordance with health regulations mandated by the state of California and county and city of San Francisco.

PGA Championship past winners

Based on recent history, Koepka has a leg up to win the PGA Championship after winning each of the last two tournaments. Koepka is tied with McIlroy for second-most wins in the event this millenium (two), trailing only Tiger Woods’ three. Koepka is also the only golfer besides Tiger to have won this event in back-to-back years since 2000; Woods won in 2006 and ’07.

That said, Thomas enters the event having won the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on Sunday, and is the last golfer prior to Koepka to win the PGA Championship. Tiger (World No. 15) last won the event in 2007. Here’s a full breakdown of the winners (and their share) for each of the last 20 PGA championships:
