#AskESPNCaddie: Talking The Open

Has there been a better Open Championship than Henrik Stenson's win at Royal Troon? Will the LPGA try to play at more courses where the men play? Michael Collins answers your questions...

Looking for possibly the most idyllic hole here at Baltusrol Golf Club, site of the 98th PGA Championship? The par-3 fourth would certainly qualify. It won't be a pushover, though. Just heard two fans debating if they would lay up off the tee. When they were reminded it was a par-3, they reconsidered.

Jordan Spieth turns 23 today. In the year they were 23, Jack won two majors; Tiger and Rory each won one. You know, no pressure or anything.

Dustin Johnson attributes his strong play recently at the majors to the harder the course, the better he plays. And with holes 17 and 18 as par-5s to close out the back nine at Baltusrol, we should expect some fireworks down the stretch at the 98th PGA Championship starting Thursday.

Sergio Garcia is playing his 70th consecutive major championship at the PGA. The streak -- the longest active -- dates to the 1999 Open. Garcia has 22 top-10s and 12 top-5s, including tied for fifth at both the U.S. Open and The Open. Of course, Garcia, 36, has never won a major. The last four majors have been won by first-timers and Garcia hopes that streak continues at Baltusrol. "If it doesn't happen, it's not going to change my life,'' Garcia said. "I'm not going to go in a cave and stay there until I die because I didn't win a major.''

Andrew Johnston took his tour to America this week, playing in the 98th PGA Championship. The pro golfer affectionately known as "Beef" is still trying to get used to his growing popularity, though. After playing a practice round here at Baltusrol Golf Club, the Englishman said it took him nearly 4 1/2 hours to play 11 holes -- because he was signing so many autographs.

Jason Day's wife, Elle, was taken to the hospital on Tuesday night for what turned out to be an allergic reaction. The No. 1-ranked golfer in the world had yet to see Baltusrol as of Wednesday morning as he tried to manage his own health (a cold) and getting rest with a tight schedule and the PGA Championship starting Thursday. Day had back issues prior to the Masters and then the flu, a cold at the U.S. Open, a rib-injury scare at The Open and now a lack of sleep. Day and his wife did not return to their hotel until 2 a.m.

Jason Day had bulging disc pre-Masters, a cold pre-U.S. Open, felt stressed pre-Open and says he's under the weather this week. Grand slam.

PGA Championship defending champion Jason Day on his Baltusrol knowledge -- or lack thereof: "I haven't played a practice round. I haven't seen the course. I don't know what it looks like." He plans to get acquainted with all 18 holes later today.

Rory McIlroy playing the back nine at Baltusrol this morning with Rickie Fowler and Brandt Snedeker. Rory shooting for his 5th major title this week at age 27. The only other men to do that before age 30 are all in the "one name" club: Bobby, Jack and Tiger.

Rickie Fowler playing the back nine at Baltusrol GC this morning. After a top-5 finish in all the 2015 Majors, Fowler has two MCs (Masters, US Open) and a t-46 at Open Championship in 2016.
