Best moments from 2017 PGA Championship Media Day

The 99th edition of the PGA Championship may be two months away, but the host city, Charlotte, N.C., got a sneak peek of what's to come today at PGA Championship Media Day. 

Media day started early as defending PGA Champion Jimmy Walker met with the folks from Golf Channel's Morning Drive on the course at Quail Hollow.

Walker then took to Facebook Live for his fireside chat where he answered questions about golf, dad life and even aliens.

At the fireside chat Walker and his son McClain received gifts from the Charlotte Hornets and the Carolina Panthers.

A few hours later, Walker got an indepth tour of Charlotte Motor Speedway.

And, McClain got to live his dream. 

Walker got some racing tips from NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick in exchange for a picture with the Wanamaker Trophy.

And, the PGA Champion even took the wheel!

Jimmy Walker will defend his title from August 7-13, at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. The Queen City seems to suit him well.
