Paul McGinley would support any move by the USPGA to take the final major event of the year on the road.

Talk has recently centred upon the possibility of the PGA Championship behind held outside of the United States every five years, in acknowledgment to the game's increasingly global appeal.

Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland has been mentioned as a possible venue and although the prospect pleases the upcoming Ryder Cup captain, he was also quick to temper enthusiasm.

"If they are thinking about taking the PGA out of America and taking it around the world every five years, I'm all for that," he said.

"Whether it comes to Ireland or whether it goes to China, or Africa or Dubai we'll have to wait and see.

"As everyone knows, these days hosting an event there's massive logistics involved in so many ways.

"It's early days, as much as we'd all love to see it in Europe, or maybe even in Portrush, it's premature to think it's definitely going to happen."
