Another major championship is up for grabs this week.

Just over a month after Scottie Scheffler claimed his second green jacket at the Masters, the second major tournament of the year got underway Thursday with the 2024 PGA Championship.

Reigning tournament champion Brooks Koepka is looking to go back-to-back for a second time in his career. Koepka was a repeat PGA Championship winner in 2018 and 2019 before recapturing the title last year.

Koepka is one of 156 golfers competing in the 72-hole tournament at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. However, not everyone in the field will get to play all four rounds.
