Donald: PGA Championship is fourth-best major

Perhaps by default, the PGA Championship is largely considered the fourth-most valuable of the major championships.

World No. 1 Luke Donald, still searching for his major breakthrough, laid out his rationale why Glory's Last Shot is a nickname akin to describing last call at a bar.

"I suppose if you were going to rank majors, I'd probably put that probably fourth on the list," he said Wednesday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

"One, because of its positioning; it's the last one. Two, it does have a different setup feel to it. The PGA of America aren't usually trying to create the hardest test possible. In that way it feels a little bit more like a regular Tour event."

That said, it's still a major. Donald wants one, so he won't be simply taking in the scenery next week at Kiawah Island.

"Obviously a great field, and certainly shouldn't take any shine away from anyone who's won a PGA Championship," he said. "It was something that I would love to win. I'll be trying my hardest next week."
