LOUISVILLE - Rory McIlroy is confident he can keep dominating while Adam Scott wants to make a sizzling start at the 96th PGA Championship, where Tiger Woods is nowhere in sight.

The year's final major tournament tees off on Thursday at Valhalla with almost all of the world's 100 top players chasing the Wanamaker Trophy.

New world No.1 McIlroy comes off winning his third major title at last month's British Open and taking his first World Golf Championships crown last Sunday at Akron, Ohio.

"I said at the beginning of the year that golf was looking for someone to put their hand up and sort of become one of the dominant players in the game," McIlroy said. "I felt like I had the ability to do that."
