The Wannamaker Trophy is up for grabs.¬† Hopefully Colin hasn't lost the lid¬†¬†ūü§£. Interesting bit of history is that the trophy was in fact lost for a period of time. The 103rd PGA Championship takes place at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, SC. Will we see another first time major winner?¬† Might a Zalatoris, Burns, Hovland, or Scheffler¬†follow Morikawa's footsteps from¬†last years event?¬† Or, might we see a well deserving journeymen like Finau, Leishman, Cantlay, Rahm, Harman, or¬†a host of others, get their first major?¬† It's a star studded line up and should provide some good drama.¬† I'm going with my man Jordan for the win.¬† Who ya got?

Spieth is in pretty good form right now and I think Kiawah fits his game pretty well, I like his chances to complete the career slam

Nothing scientific but I’d like to see Rory, JT, or Hovland win, Fowler as a long shot, but I’d be perfectly happy to see anyone win except Garcia, DeChambeau or Holmes. Just my preferences. Kiawah looks great, a buddy of mine played it last Fall, should be a great event.

Have to go with Spieth for the slam.  Probably go with him for this tournament as long as he is playing in it.

The PGA always seems to produce interesting or new winners. I am going to go for someone who hasn't won a major before. My short list will be Finau, Rahm or Xander.

Should be an interesting week! Tough to know who to go with, Rory and Speith are both in good form but it's tough to say if they're "back" enough to take down a major field. Some of the other top dogs have been a little more quiet coming in (DJ, Rahm, Morikawa, Bryson). 

No matter what though, major tournament weeks are always a blast!

Should be an interesting tournament as always. Will be interesting to see how the course plays now in May when previously played here in August. Obviously Rory with the history and winning here hopefully has some good memories. Spieth is back in some form and personally I would love him to get the career slam. Would be nice to see some decent wind and a bit of challenge this time around. Either way should be a fun watch.

I was lucky enough to play there 20 odd years ago. On the front the wind was calm, but after the turn it started really blowing. Downwind I hit a 3 wood 330 yds (normal was about 230 then), and into the wind hit a solid 4 iron (normal 190) that splashed short of a 130 carry. I hope for wind as well, but at that level it would be bloody.

Lets be real we are all not so secretly hoping one of the players on our Ftx teams end up doing well and winning. I had a hard time not listing my whole team for players I think will win or be routing for. 
And that includes the 2 guys I haven't picked up yet!

I want carnage! After this past week, I want a REAL test since I believe that’s how the Majors should be.

Rory has some good history here.... could he be rounding into form at a good time?

or Rickie... because I STILL want him to win!

 

There seems to be a lot of new guys and established players making some big pushes this year.  I wouldn't be surprised if we get a first time winner or someone older finally break through either.
