Nicklaus: PGA Championship most open major
Of all the majors, the PGA Championship is the most exciting - simply because anyone can win it. The words of a man who knows more than anyone when it comes to winning majors, 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus.

"The British Open, you can eliminate a lot of guys because of conditions. The U.S. Open you have the same thing and the Masters the same thing. But I think more people, because of the summer conditions and the nature of what happened with the PGA Championship, it opens it up to more people having an opportunity to win. So I think the PGA is a pretty open ball game right now."

Nicklaus underlined the importance of adaptability and the ability to tailor their game to the courses hard-to-read greens.

"The player has to suit his game to the golf course and the guys that can adapt to it are the guys that always have been the good players," Nicklaus added. "I mean, Mickelson will adapt well to it. Tiger will adapt well to it. I think there's a lot of guys that will adapt well to it.

Speaking of Tiger Woods, this will be his last chance to break his 0 for 17 run on Majors since the US Open in 2008, how does Nicklaus like his chances?

"Obviously Tiger has had a very, very good year," Nicklaus added. "He's not finished off a couple majors he's had an opportunity to be involved in.

"You would be pretty hard pressed not to make him, if not the favorite, one of the favorites going into Oak Hill."
