The PGA Champs heads to the state of St Louis for 100th Edition of the US PGA Championship
Following one of the best British Opens’ in history we look forward to the exciting challenge ahead of the best players in the world, at Bellerive Country Club.
Bellerive is a long course, measuring at 7,547 yards from the championship tee’s and with plenty of water to contend with after being built around a large creek, as well as large, undulating greens makes it a test of all skills over the 4 days.
Having to deal with the threat of defending champion Justin Thomas after last weeks emotional WGC win, no one will have it easy!
The dark horse and most consistent major performer of the year after coming in the top 10 of each major so far, Tony Finau, will certainly fancy is chances with his 300+ yards drives and powerful iron play. Although history hasn’t always favoured the long hitters after Gary Players 1965 win at Bellerive.
So do things for the likes of Justin Rose look good going into the week, after a spectacular weekend at The Open a few weeks back, he has now had 2 rest weeks and will be coming out all guns blazing.
After several 2nd places finishes and multiple top 10 places on the PGA and European Tour this year, is it time for Rory McIlroy to make another PGA Championship win?
Or lastly, will our dreams come true and see the man in the red top, Tiger Woods, lift the Wanamaker Trophy? After a few good performances in the last month, can he hold a solid weekend together to claim one of golfs biggest prizes…
