Up next is the seasons second major, The 104th  PGA Championship at Southern Hills CC, Tulsa, OK.  A good many in the field are coming off a fantastic tune up at the ATT Byron Nelson and, most would think, the winner is among that group.  Last years unimaginable ending was really fun to watch but, unfortunately, there will be no chance of a repeat.  As a consolation prize however, Tiger Woods will tee it up and see if perhaps he can set yet another record.  Speaking of records, did you know that both Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus have won this event 5 times each? Or that Gene Sarazen, at 20 years old, became (and still remains) the youngest player to win this event?  I was 0-2 on these 😆.

The weather looks like it will be cooperating with only a chance of t-storms on Sunday. It should be a great event and hopefully a close contest leaving us all biting nails and crossing fingers and toes for our favorites to make the cut and be high up on Sunday's leaderboard.  I'm not quite sure who I'm picking yet but don't forget we have two pools this week you can be a part of; (Rob's Pool) and our weekly one below.

Don't forget to make your pick for this weeks winner https://runmypools.com/JRMPNWWF.  Good luck!

I have a feeling that the winner will NOT be a PGA Club Pro.

Way to "go out on a limb" you two 🤣.  I'm inclined to think someone with the first name Cameron might be hoisting the trophy.

After some quick research, I know for 100% certainty that a golfer with the last name beginning in E, Q, U, or X will not win the tournament.

The only thing I know with absolute certainty is that I will not be the winner next week.

Tough first group. Thomas playing great, Xander with a smooth 61 last round, Rahm is crushingly steady, Hovland's a local ~ up at Stillwater, OK and can get hot. Hatton can get hot both ways; good and bad. Wins most likely to helicopter a club. McIlroy and DJ can't seem to put 4 rounds together (either could scorch the field). And Cantlay sneaks in for the win. Still thinking. Going to be a coin toss.

I think this course will demand a mental stamina not many in the field posses.  Cam Smith had ice in his veins at the Players despite a questionable tactic on the final hole.  I also expect Tiger to be in the top 5 going into the weekend, fade a little on Saturday, then rally as only he can to challenge on Sunday.

Revised weather forecast now adding a bit more wind and a cold front moving in on Friday.  Tee times could definitely influence the outcome... particularly making it to Saturday.

So I decided on a foolproof plan....I picked who I thought would finish worst in all of the tiers.  That way my terrible predictions could be blamed on the process and not my terrible gut on how people will play at Southern Hills.

Not a bad idea…. Don’t worry I won’t steal it. I’m picking Y.E. Yang to beat Tiger… oh, wait wrong tournament.
