2018 PGA Championship PGA OAD Picks

See who the guys like to win at this week's PGA Tour action with the weekly PGA OAD picks.

2018 PGA Championship PGA OAD Picks

Here……we….go!!!!!!!! The fourth and final major of the PGA Tour season is upon us with the PGA Championship. The tour heads to St. Louis, Missouri, to Bellerive Golf Course. This will be the last time the PGA Championship is the final major of the year, as next year it will be moved to May. Last week, Justin Thomas beat a star studded field at the WGC Bridgestone and looks to win back to back tournaments and his 2nd PGA Championship. As expected for a major, it is another loaded field and has the normal cut rules we are used to. Now, let’s see who the guys like this week with the 2018 PGA Championship PGA OAD Picks.

Jesse- My pick this week is Justin Rose.  If I had DJ left I would take him, but since I don’t Rose is a super solid next option.  The back is a bit concerning, but I think he will be alright and play well this week.

Rob- Rory McIlroy – Big guns time. JDay falls apart over the final couple of holes at the WGC; other wise a solid week. Rory’s game continues to shine and a mediocore Sunday at the Bridgestone is not going to scare me off. He’s sixth in my model for approach over his last twelve rounds in easy scoring conditions, second T2G his last 12 (shows how good he is off the tee) and first ARG (!).

The putting will always be his Achilles heel, but with slower greens due, non-firm conditions, putters *should* be neutralized. Larger greens open up the conversation to good lag putters and guys good inside ten feet. However, with slower greens, Rory should be able to handle straight and firm. Anyways, I’m not going down this year without playing Rory in a major.

 

Bubba- The lead is shrinking fast and I need to get a top end finish here to feel a little more comfortable. This week, I’ll be going with a previous PGA Championship winner. He has 6 Top 25’s, 5 Top 10’a and T15 or better in 5 straight PGA Championships. He has won on tour this season. He seems to be finding that top end game we remember him once having. He’s coming in in great form with a T10, T17 and T12 in his last 3 tournaments. This week I will be going with Jason Day. (DJ, Rose and McCilroy are really solid as well)
