2015 PGA Championship

By | August 12, 2015

Last major of the year and as usual, we have a ton of story lines.  Rory’s return, DJ’s chance for redemption, endless blather about Pete Dye.  Peel back all the noise, and what do we have?  A strong field and a course many of the players have seen before.  Advantage to bombers and strong wind players.  Good putters don’t benefit as much.  Local knowledge is helpful but not critical.  After all, it’s a Pete Dye course — that means few decisions and little thinking.  Hit it where Pete tells you to and you’ll be fine.  Score on the par fives, don’t do stupid things on the other holes and you’re in the hunt on Sunday.  Stay away from early McIlroy action — no idea what to expect when you apply that much torque to a damaged ankle….

Lots of chalk and little value in the props.  We’re going long:


Stenson +3,000 (1/4 unit)

Koepka +4,000 (1/4 unit)

Lee +10,000 (1/4 unit)

Thomas +10,000 (1/4 unit)

Head-to-Head, Tournament (1 unit unless stated otherwise):

Day +146 over Spieth

Day -106 over D Johnson

Rose + 116 over Watson

Kopeka +125 over Furyk

Ogilvy +137 over Stricker

Lee +110 over Willett (2 units)

Holmes +102 over Poulter (2 units)

Palmer +106 over Moore

Els +113 over Piercy

Head-to-Head, Round 1 (1 unit each):

Palmer -106 over Hoffman

Day -109 over D Johnson

Aphibarnrat -115 over Villegas


Best of luck to all,
