This Week – 104th PGA Championship

The deepest subject in main championship golf returns to Southern Hills for the fourth time and eighth main championship.

Of the highest 50 gamers within the OWGR, 47 are loading up this week for a prize pool that ought to rival or beat the payout at THE PLAYERS earlier within the season. Promoting Stella for $19 and Mich Extremely for $18 shouldn’t make that too troublesome!

No Casey, English or Im this week.

Oh, and no defending champion. I’ll let him clarify why he’s not right here.

We’re involved about who IS right here!

Southern Hills in a monster that may stretch nearly 7,600 yards. Tiny greens counsel ball-strikers will thrive this week. The extra possibilities to 2 putt the undulating Bentgrass, the better on the soul. Carefully mown areas of Bermuda across the greens will carry DECISION MAKING into the equation, because it ought to.

And the climate.

Huge heat wind Thursday and Friday from the south might be changed with cool NNE breezes on the weekend.

The course sits proper in entrance of the gamers however that doesn’t make it simpler. Bushes and tough have been thinned out. The terrain continues to be hilly. The Maxwell greens received’t maintain poor photographs or lag putts. It’s main championship golf.

Play higher.

Majors are exhausting to win. Crowds are again they usually matter. How concerning the 50 12 months previous man successful at a packed Kiawah? No offense to the blokes who received with restricted/no spectators however that is totally different enterprise.

It’s a car parking zone within the 30-1 or higher division so time to separate some hairs for OAD and monetary pursuits.

THE CHOICE: Scottie Scheffler (+1000)

I haven’t so I’ll.

Mentally he can’t be in a greater place. He’s successful for enjoyable. Southern Hills is his favourite monitor. Wind doesn’t hassle him and neither does something outdoors of six inches between his ears.

The weak spot in his sport is the tee ball discovering the golf green however he’s third GIR so I assume it doesn’t matter! Extra fairways this week and he’ll run away with it.

I hate taking part in the favourite however look the place that has gotten me! I’m hanging with @CaledonianMoneyPit within the nether areas of this sport!

Save me Scottie?

Beam me up, Scottie?

Hell, give me Jim Beam, is he taking part in?

For $16 a cocktail, I’m good…

Heat Blankets: The fellows who ought to. Secure picks that can assist keep leads. Opinions on why or why not for this occasion or save for later.

Jon Rahm (+1100): Victory in his final begin ought to have him firing on all methods. I’m using him within the Skilled Picks this week. Like Scheffler, no interested by successful a significant, simply successful extra of them.

Rory McIlroy (+1400): Two time champ picked up his final main on this occasion at Valhalla in 2014. Flashing indicators just lately with solo fifth at WFC and solo second on the Masters. Ball-striking tracks favor his strengths however we’ve been saying this for a decade plus.

Justin Thomas (+1400): Sits third SG: TTG and that’s not possible to pretend. Winner at The Inexperienced Mile at Quail Hole, there might be loads of inexperienced and miles this week at Southern Hills. Sluggish begin doomed his possibilities to win on the Masters however he performed the ultimate three rounds in five-under to hit the highest 10.

Jordan Spieth (+1800): Some will contemplate him the second selection this week and luxuriate in this quantity! After blowing a tire on the Masters he’s received with lower than his greatest at Harbour City and gave KH Lee a run for his cash final Sunday earlier than choosing up solo second. Think about if he begins holing something! He loves Perry Maxwell (see his HFC at Colonial) and is hitting it nice. Be careful.

Collin Morikawa (+2000): Makes it look really easy tee to inexperienced and that’s exhausting to disregard. If he’s not sharp this week he’ll be navigating Bermuda chipping areas, which isn’t his power. Now, if he hits 65 greens he’ll be simply advantageous! Prime 10s in his final 4 majors counsel his chipping points may not be an enormous deal.

Patrick Cantlay (+2000): Shocked to keep in mind that he has simply two high 10s in 20 main championship begins, each coming in 2019. With 12 guys 25-1 or higher, I’m discovering hairs to separate.

Cameron Smith (+2200): Outdoors of the Masters his travails in main championship golf have been lower than memorable. His greatest end in a PGA Championship was on debut in 2015 (T25) at Whistling Straits.

Xander Schauffele (+2200): Simply save him for the US Open the place he’s rattled off T7 in 5 straight years. I’m.

Hideki Matsuyama (+2200): He’s wholesome and put up a really stable exhibiting on the Masters in his protection. Underrated quick sport will save him photographs this week. He’s in my lineup in Skilled Picks.

Dustin Johnson (+2500): I just like the quantity greater than the OAD angle. His status for enjoying via the weather doesn’t harm both.  He’s been calmly raced this spring as he’s been busy getting married and all of the enjoyable stuff that goes together with it. I’d anticipate him to heat up deeper into the summer season.

Viktor Hovland (+2500): Everybody loves the native angle and why not? His quick sport is an actual factor and never in a great way. There’s no premium right here for a man who has cashed T33-T30 in his earlier two of those and hasn’t posted a high 10 in any main championship?

Spicy: This could be per week for sending out an “unknown” and saving a begin. You simply would possibly get fortunate. Or MC.

Shane Lowry (+2800): Solely cause he’s down right here is as a result of the aboves are 25-1. Gotta draw a line someplace. Keep in mind he led 2016 Oakmont US Open for rattling close to all of it earlier than DJ swooped in. He’s not worries about large ballparks, chipping and placing or any wind. Sure, please.

Will Zalatoris (+3300): Oh worth the place artwork thou? The Masters connection appears to be a factor this week though Bermuda/Fescue tough at simply over two inches is tougher than 1 / 4 inch of ryegrass, no?

Brooks Koepka (+3500): Horrible PLAYERS and Masters doesn’t encourage. I assumed he was large occasions solely?

Daniel Berger (+5500): Previous champion at Colonial. Prime 10 TTG and Complete. Balanced.

Corey Conners (+6000): Needs to be proper at dwelling in addition to he hits it.

Max Homa (+6000): Would have gotten near 90-1 if he simply would have completed T3 at Wells Fargo! Max!

Tiger Woods (+7500): One greenback simply in case!

Keegan Bradley (+8000): Too many good ones just lately to disregard. One other who’s comfortable placing received’t be the figuring out issue this week. Hitting it GREAT.

3 AM on the Blackjack Desk: Warning is thrown to the wind. Perhaps not the very best for this format however what the hell, proper? Would possibly throw these in in case you’re in want of a miracle.

Talor Gooch (+10000): Native lad, OkSt lad, have it lad! Perhaps a high 20!

Alex Noren (+12500): One other Poke! No, nowt the uncooked tuna, OkSt Cowboy who has been simmering all spring.

Aaron Clever (+14000): The longer, the higher.

Davis Riley (+15000): He’s free rollin’ on the again of three consecutive Prime 10s.

Jhonattan Vegas (+16000): Wind blow exhausting and powerful and he’s comfortable.

Robert MacIntyre (+17500): Sprinkled within the high 40.

Erik van Rooyen (+17500): Anyone who will get discover at Bethpage Black is cool with me.

Humorous Cash Lengthy Photographs:

Sepp Straka (+20000), Min Woo Lee (+30000), Kevin Streelman (+35000)

Final Time – AT&T Byron Nelson

THE CHOICE: Will Zalatoris (+2200)

When 5-under makes the lower, posting 4-under offers precisely zero solace.

Hitting 12 of 28 fairways on a large open course didn’t assist however that’s my season in a nutshell.

Full marks to KH Lee who’s now the mayor of McKinney, Texas as he’s now 51-under in two occasions with two titles to point out for his efforts.

Oh, and in case you didn’t see this, you’ve missed out:

“Being attractive means to be a muscular man. It’s in my dream however not fairly attainable in actuality. I wish to be muscular, however I take pleasure in consuming a lot. For instance, I attempt to not eat dinner if I’ve an enormous lunch, however when time for supper comes, I’m often hungry once more. I’ll work out exhausting, however I’ll eat exhausting as effectively.”

Heat Blankets: The fellows who ought to. Secure picks that can assist keep leads. Opinions on why or why not for this occasion or save for later.

Scottie Scheffler (+1000): Identical principle with Rahm in Mexico. Much less guys to beat. Much less stress. Or it can save you him for Tulsa the place he shot 64 in a apply spherical final week. I’m not speaking you out of both one! He’s on auto pilot! When 19-under solely will get you a share of fifteenth…Made 28 birdies and made nothing hahahahahaha.

Justin Thomas (+1100): Earlier proof would counsel a birdie fest is correct up his alley. His 59 at Sony mixed with a successful complete of 253 is ridiculous and report setting. And that was on a Par 70! 23-under is T5. He beat Scottie by 4 and didn’t hit the rostrum. Simply two bogeys his final 54 holes.

Sam Burns (+1800): Opened 65-62 and was 20-under after 54. Identical to final 12 months he arrives on the again of a win at Valspar.  MC. After all.

Jordan Spieth (+2200): Opened with 63 final 12 months and completed T9. Rolls in off a win at Harbour City with hardly his greatest however his putter will want an enormous week within the broad open subject. Solo second with 29 birdies and an eagle.

Dustin Johnson (+2200): Final time we noticed him was on Insta at his wedding ceremony after RBC Heritage. Good monitor to land softly and heat up for Southern Hills. Making birdies on straightforward programs has by no means been his concern however one “off” spherical this week they usually’ll all fly by! T59 on Sunday as he was working the kinks out. Backside 10 in Fairways and placing however nonetheless made 24 birdies and an eagle.

Xander Schauffele (+2200): I wrote about him in PGATOUR Decide ‘Em above. Lid is off. Birdies rolling in. Likes Weiskopf as his report signifies (T17 or higher in 5 at TPC Scottsdale) and his sport doesn’t have many holes. Performed the ultimate 54 holes in 23-under together with 61 on Sunday for T5.

Hideki Matsuyama (+2500): One other who loves Weiskopf’s TPC Scottsdale and one other who will destroy Par-5 holes. Makes birdies for enjoyable however the probability you’ll take is his stage of concern. He WD at Valero earlier than the Masters final month and was T39 right here final 12 months. T3 as he closed with 9 birdies and an eagle for 62 on Sunday.

Spicy: This could be per week for sending out an “unknown” and saving a begin. You simply would possibly get fortunate. Or MC.

Jason Kokrak (+5000): Kilos it, putts it. T17

Jason Day (+5000): Greater targets this week off the tee and into the inexperienced ought to free him up. The placing and quick sport isn’t the problem. Now, about that again… T51 as he scuffed it about tee to inexperienced.

Davis Riley (+6600): Final time we noticed him was solo fifth in Mexico as he stuffed it up. Laborious to leap off now! T9 with a pair of bogey free 64s within the center. Joined Schauffele as the one two gamers within the high 15 with a spherical of par over 4 days.

Lanto Griffin (+7500): T6-T15 final two outings and I used to be on him final week. Journey on! Two rounds within the 70s this week isn’t any bueno. T51.

Patrick Rodgers (+16000): KH Lee was 165-1 final 12 months so I’m digging deep. Trending in the suitable course and with loads of room to overlook off the tee he needs to be inspired! T32 as he couldn’t conquer the KH Lee impact.

3 AM on the Blackjack Desk: Warning is thrown to the wind. Perhaps not the very best for this format however what the hell, proper? Would possibly throw these in in case you’re in want of a miracle.

Charl Schwartzel (+20000) – eighth, Greyson Sigg (+22500) – MC, James Hahn (+22500) – T9, Justin Decrease (+35000) sat solo fourth after 36 holes earlier than T41.
