The 2019 PGA Championship has arrived with Bethpage Black playing host to the event’s first run at its new May-based time in the major championship schedule. That’s perfectly fine if you got caught off guard because we here at CBS Sports are going to have everything you need to get ready for the weekend in addition to wall-to-wall coverage of the event. 

Excitement for the second major of the season was sparked by Tiger Woods’ historic win at the 2019 Masters, but he’s not the only golfer deserving of your rooting interest. The field, which includes PGA club pros from around the country, provides dozens of stories that are worth your attention and support as a golf fan. Below, we’ve narrowed that group down to nine golfers that are going to be the easiest to root for and could provide the best stories in the event of a win on Sunday.
