US PGA Championship

The final Major of the year is nearly upon us with the US PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. With the worlds top 100 golfers in the field it is sure to be a heavily contested battle. We take a look at some of the main contenders for the title, as well as a few outsiders who will be looking to spring a surprise.

US PGA Trophy

1. Rory Mcilroy

It is hard to look past Rory Mcilroy for the title this year after he appeared to find some form last week at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. Quail Hollow is a course Rory loves, having twice broken the course record here, including an 11 under round of 61! Taking advantage of the par 5s is crucial round this golf course and judging by his stats last week, where he hit 52 of his 56 drives over 300 yards, he will have the power to do excatly this. Rory to continue his good form and win comfortably! (we hope)

2. Dustin Johnson

Another one who looks to have found some form to carry into this week after the WGC. Dustin by his own admission thinks his game is back to where it was during that phenomenal spell he had last year. Another absolute bomber off the tee, hitting a 439 Yard drive last week, he is well capable of eating up the par 5s round Quail Hollow and is sure to be there or there abouts come Sunday down the strech.

DJ

3. Hideki Matsuyama

This years Mr Consistant, Hideki Matsuyama just doesnt have a bad week on the golf course! Has already broken into the top 3 in the world rankings this year and is breathing down DJs neck for that no.1 spot. The man with the unusual pause at the top of his swing is one of the best ball strikers in golf, and while maybe not in the same league as Rory and DJ, is certainly not short off the tee. Won last week in empahtic style at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and will be looking to carry that momentum into this week and secure his first Major victory.

The Outsiders......

1. Tony Finau

Long off the tee and having his best year on the PGA Tour. Finished in the Top 5 at the Canadian Open and has twice finished inside the top 30 at the Wells Fargo Championship when held at Quail Hollow......

2. Justin Thomas

Surely only a matter of time before the young American gains his first Major Championship victory? Long off the tee without appearing to even try, and the ability to go extremely low, having a 59 on the PGA Tour, and a 63 at the US Open. Needs to be more consistant over four rounds in a Major but this could be his week! Also wins for having the best outfit ever at a major!
