He has played some good golf in 2017, and has consistently said that his game is in good shape this term. He tied for fifth at the U.S. Open and since he was born in Charlotte it might be a good omen. "Then I can reassess how these couple of weeks have went with Harry on the bag, and then we'll see what I do for the play-offs after that".
Outside the top two, Hideki Matsuyama, who was in sparkling form when winning the WGC Bridgestone Invitational last week can be backed at 12/1, the unsafe Dustin Johnson is available at 14/1, and Rickie Fowler, who has yet to pick up his first Major but has recorded five top tens in his last seven tournaments is priced up at around 18/1.
However, Spieth faces stiff competition from rival Rory McIlroy, who has twice claimed victory at PGA events at Quail Hollow and leads the way on this year's PGA Championship odds as a +700 favourite. Just don't dare suggest to the double US PGA champion that he travelled to North Carolina looking to set the record straight amid a winless year which has been disrupted by injury and equipment alterations.
The 29-year-old also won three times in early 2016, including the WGC-Dell Match Play and Players Championship, but has not tasted success since and withdrew from his title defence in the Match Play due to his mother's battle with cancer.
Jordan Spieth already has shown a remarkable sense of the moment. Last year's champion, Jimmy Walker, had been struggling heading into the tournament but found his game at just the right time.
"It was only weeks ago that I was able to get the third leg, and that's so fresh in my mind", Spieth said. "I think that plays to my advantage".
McIlroy is expected to be a contender for a third Wanamaker Trophy after wins in 2012 and 2014.
"I've always been a feel player".
"The British, I won without really feeling like I was putting well at all".
American Dustin Johnson, who came out on top at last year's US Open, is another player that could be in contention as he continues his return from a freak injury.
He has had a Top-10 in each of the Majors in last four years and last year he was T-4 at the PGA.
Was US Open co-runner-up in June to Brooks Koepka at Erin Hills. "I've gone through what will probably and hopefully be the worst loss of my career in the most public eye that golf has", he said.
