PGA Championship – 3 Players To Watch
Brooks Koepka – We are featuring Brooks for a second week in a row and for good reason. He has won the PGA Championship in two consecutive years and is coming off a 2nd place finish in yesterdays WGC. So far Brooks has had an up and down 2020 season but this week he is pursuing history! If he can win the 2020 PGA Championship in San Francisco, he will become the 1st player since Walter Hagen to win this event 3 years in a row. (As it turns out Walter Hagen won the PGA Championship 4 times in a row from 1924-27)
Collin Morikawa – He is a local guy from San Francisco and will be the sentimental area favorite. One would think that he would have already played this course a handful of times and has local insights.
You have to have talent and guts to storm the field as a young player and win a Major before turning 24, but Morikawa has a special profile. He enters the week first in the field in approach over the past 50 rounds, and is the only player who ranks inside the Top 10 in proximity from both 175-200 yards and 200+ Yards.
Justin Thomas – Jon Rahm’s reign as #1 PGA golfer was short lived. With his victor at TPC Southwind, Justin Thomas has claimed the title of World’s best golfer. The victory was Justin’s 13th career victory.
“It means a lot, especially with how I felt like I did it,” Thomas said.”In the past, I struggled with coming from behind. I got wrapped up in how far I was behind and how many people.”
Justin need to be considered as a top threat in claiming the 2020 PGA Championship.
