The PGA Championship is the lone major that allows its players to practice in shorts.

With the August summer temperatures making for steamy practice rounds at Bellerive Country Club, it was a welcomed bonus.

Here's a look at some of the PGA's finest players who rocked the shorts best.

Rory McIlroy

McIlroy joined Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia at the iconic Gateway Arch of St. Louis for a Closest to the Hole challenge at Monday's practice round. Rory is looking to take home his third Wanamaker Trophy, having won two in three years between 2012 and 2014.
