Jordan Spieth is seeking to become only the sixth player to complete a career Grand Slam after winning the British Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in Southport, England two weeks ago. Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy are also on their final leg of the Slam, and need a victory at the U.S. Open and Masters, respectively.
Spieth will have an opportunity to become the youngest golfer ever, at 24 years, 17 days old, to record a Grand Slam. This will be his only chance as the youngest, as Tiger Woods was the last to complete the Slam in 2000 at 24 years, 5 months old after hoisting the Claret Jug at St. Andrews.

McIlroy will be competing with a new caddie after he parted ways with longtime caddie J.P. Fitzgerald on the eve of the WGC Bridgestone Invitational on Wednesday, Aug. 2. The Northern Irishman will be seeking his fifth major title and his first since the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla. McIlroy boasts the best record at Quai Hollow: two Wells Fargo victories for a total of six top-ten finishes in seven starts on the course.
