Who Will Win The PGA Championship in 2017?

PGA Championship Trophy Quail Hollow 2017Picking who will win the PGA Championship is both easy and hard.

On one side you it plays like a regular PGA Tour event; no crazy winds like the Open, no horrible setups like the US Open and not as much pressure as the perfect grounds of Augusta and the Masters. On the other hand you get courses like Quail Hollow that most have played at the Wells Fargo Championship and the field of possible winners increases as most of the top golfers in the field are good enough to make a run at it.

In my list of picks below I have focussed on the top players on the PGA Tour right now and based on how they’ve played this year and more specifically the last month or so have chosen them as the lineup anchors that I will build my multiple lineups for the DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire.

Players we think will win the 2017 PGA Championship

Dustin Johnson – It seems like that injury at the Masters completely derailed his momentum because since then he’s been good but not as great as he was then. Had a strong 3rd round at Royal Birkdale but was too far off and basically mailed in his final round. Can’t count him out but analyze how he played at the WGC Bridgestone to decide if he’s going to be a contender for this week.

Rory McIlroy – Really never got it going at Royal Birkdale but he did finish tied for 7th. He was dealing with an injury but that seems to be past him. Wonder if seeing that Jordan is going for the career slam will ignite McIlroy into playing better this week.

Rickie Fowler – Played OK at the Open and the PGA Championship could just well be where it all comes together. His golf game is clicking right now and he’s had three great finishes at the majors. He will once again be on the leaderboard come Sunday.

Jordan Spieth – Showed at the Open that he is as solid as they come. Just when it looked like he was out, he came roaring back to win. A win at the PGA Championship would give him the career slam and the way he is playing right now…can anyone really stop him?

Jon Rahm – Forget the blow-up at the US Open and that he was just average at the Open Championship. In between that he had a win and a 10th place finish on the European Tour. Rahm is the real deal and will be in contention on Sunday.

And the winner of the 2017 PGA Championship is…

Hideki Matsuyama Hideki Matsuyama – Although pretty much everyone on the list above can win and I really like Rory, Spieth and Fowler to contend, I will have a bunch of Fantasy Golf Millionaire Contests with Matsuyama being the main guy. He’s now No. 3 in the world and just seems close to the top of the leaderboard in almost every tournament he’s in. I have no doubt about a Top 10 (maybe even Top 5) finish and if I can pair him with someone else from the list above and then get 4 sleepers that make the cut…Maybe I’ll be $1 Million richer?
