The 2nd major of the year. New time in the year, apparently Bethpage is ready from the social outlets that I have seen.

 

Will BK win again and get that 4th major?

 

Could Justin Thomas pull off another PGA?

 

How about Jordan?

 

Maybe this year we will get a PGA Pro winner?

 

This has always been my least favorite of the majors, but having The Players in March was awesome, so maybe this will be good for the tournament.

 

I’m going with Adam Scott. It’s got to happen at some point.

 

I am ready for a Ryder Cup preview, and to see how this one is set up.

 

What’s your pick?

I'm pretty pumped to see how Bethpage Black plays this year! As for me pick...I'll get back to you on that one. Of course I would love to see Tiger win it, but I suspect someone else to pull it off. I think it would be really cool to see Rickie get his first major, but I'm not so sure about that one either!

I do find it odd that we get a lot of first time major winners at the PGA as statistically, it is the hardest tournament to win. Lots of good potential picks here, Bethpage is a drivers course so I'll pick DJ or Keopka.

Looks like Big Cat has been there for a few days using his Masters prep tactics. I’m a huge Tiger fan and this would be awesome for sure.

There will be a hundred plus other guys trying to keep that from happening. It will be a great tournament for sure.

Brooks Koepka would be my pick. But, I'm still pulling for my boy, Ricky!

I'm stuck between BK and TW.  Tiger has the momentum and the history here and all the obvious talking points that we'll hear all week.  

BK would love nothing more than to shut up Chamblee for 2 minutes.  

And just to add, I love this golf course.

I do believe 16 and 82 will be said a record breaking time next weekend.

Would be an amazing feat if he pulled it off. If we look back to The Open last year... he’s went T6, 2, W... gave a lot of shots away at The Open and the PGA. Just a few bad swings, just like a lot of the greats from looking at 18 this week.

I am particularly excited about the venue as well! Based on what I've seen on Twitter, it looks like it's in phenomenal shape!

Excited for the tournament, though a touch less excited at having to listen to the New York crowds for 4 days lol.

Obviously would love to see Tiger win. If not, Rickie Fowler or Tony Finau are my next picks.

Think Brooks has a good shot too. He's got a bone to pick with Chamblee and I think he could win the rest of the majors this year just to spite him.

I’ll pick Xander. He’s played well at some of the big events the last couple years, he should be in the mix come Sunday. I like JR as well, but he struggles with putting so much it’s difficult to pick him. If he putts well he has a chance

Gotta go with Tiger on this one, he made me a believer after his Masters win, and I think if he can keep it in the fairway, no one will come close. Plus he has history at BP Black.

Good pick.  He has an impressive four years on tour resume - year one only involving two events.

I'm so happy to see it at Bethpage Black can't get enough of seeing that course on TV. It's one that's on my bucket list to play one day.

Selfishly I want Rory to win so I can get a new M6 driver!

If he doesn't, though, then I'll hope for Tiger to get #16 and pull ever closer to Jack.

The course is going to play LOOOOONG.  We are in the midst of getting close to three inches of rain over the last 48 hours.  I have a few friends that have played the course in the last month and was told the rough is up, the fairways are a lot narrower than during normal play and two of them came close to giving up the game midway through the back nine.  That being said my pick will be a bomber that can hit it straight with less up an emphasis on the flat stick.  Think Koepka may repeat with the way he played this past weekend, also have my eye on JT as well.  Tiger is my dark horse as I am not sure how the course will physically beat him up, not a fun walk at all.

Its crazy how much rain we've got since early Sunday morning.  Looks like it should dry out a little between later tonight through Thursday.  I am sure they'll get the greens plenty firm by then.

The rough is going to be LUSH.  Hitting and holding the green out of the rough from anything more than 175 yards is going to be darn near impossible.
