2019 PGA Championship: 10 storylines to follow at Bethpage, starting with Tiger Woods

However, because he doesn't have the PGA Tour resume to fall back on (he only has two other wins), there's a sense that if he doesn't load up on majors that he'll get a little bit lost when we talk about superstars of this generation.

Signs do not point to a Spieth Slam, but maybe that's precisely what he needs to join a group that includes Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen and Gary Player.

Breakthrough winners: This is a storyline at pretty much every major, but the list of terrific golfers who have come close but not yet won the big one is stacking up.

In the last three seasons, Koepka leads the PGA Tour with five top 10s at majors, but a group of Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Xander Schauffele, Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler is just behind him with four.

Americans have won seven of the last eight major championships, which is a nearly unparalleled run of success in the modern era for the stars and stripes.

Lefty's nervous: Phil Mickelson has missed the last two PGA Championship cuts and doesn't have a top 10 at any major since his runner up to Henrik Stenson at the 2016 Open.
