Why THe PGA Championship Is The Weak Link

John Huggan of the Scotsman thinks that the PGA Championship is the weakest of the four majors, lacking any real identity:

Let’s face it; the US PGA is lucky to be a major in the 21st century. Were the four quarters of what was once called the “Impregnable Quadrilateral” chosen again tomorrow, surely only two of today’s constituent parts would make the cut. Joining the two Opens, the PGA Tour’s flagship Players Championship and a travelling World Match Play Championship would better reflect the modern golfing world. A brace of majors in the United States, one in Great Britain and the fourth moving between the likes of Australia, South Africa and, the way things are going, China, is at least less biased than the status quo, three of the four majors played in the same country.
