105. USA PGA Championship kicks off today with the tournament taking place at the iconic Oak Hill Country Club in upstate New York.

99 of the world’s top 100 players will compete for trophies and titles because this competition, unlike the Masters, US Open and Open Championship, does not include amateur players.

Justin Thomas The defender is the champion and must play a solid defense, but for victory the hot favorites are the two best players in the world. Current Masters champion Jon Rahm and world no. 2 Scottie Scheffler they come to the championship in top form and in hopes of adding another major to their individual score.

in another place, Tiger Woods absent because he recovered from an ankle injury, Jordan Spieth He is making his seventh Grand Slam attempt in his career and Rory McIlroy He downplays his chances after a less-than-stellar outing at the Masters.

There is also additional interest arising from the inclusion of LIV golf players. Phil Michaelson And Brooks Koepka He tied for second place at Augusta and will want to go well once again this time, which will be an important result for the controversial round.

Follow all the action at the 105th USA PGA Championship:


Can Rory McIlroy reinvent her form?

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is expected to perform well on a course where he is an honorary member this week, but enters the tournament in poor form.

The world number three won twice earlier in the season, but missed the cut in both The Players and Masters, and finished 47th, 19 strokes behind Wyndham Clark, who recently won the Wells Fargo Championship.

McIlroy has competed in 30 majors since winning the 2014 US PGA, the last of the four, but has been in the top 10 in all four of the biggest championships in 2022.

Who will win the PGA Championship?

Here’s a look at a few of the players with big chances of victory this week:

A decent long shot. Tom Hoge may be struggling again to turn his solid enough PGA Tour shows into one big weekend, but his sharp approach game should be worthwhile.

Hoge excelled at this tournament in Southern Hills last year and showed what he could do with a sparkling 62 at the Players’ Championship in March.

Here’s a look at a few of the players with big chances of victory this week:

Brooks Koepka or Dustin Johnson may be the more obvious challengers among the LIV Golf rebels, but Patrick Reed is surprisingly unpopular and might do well in Oak Hill.

Finishing the Masters in the top five showed an uber competitor’s big weekend prowess, and Reed may have the right kind of character and game to contend with.

Who will win the PGA Championship?

Here’s a look at a few of the players with big chances of victory this week:

It was great to see Jason Day lift a trophy at Byron Nelson and Australia win the PGA Tour after a tough five years. Can he maintain that kind of fluency and struggle for a second PGA Championship crown?

He was right in the contention to finish the Masters in the top ten before a disastrous Sunday in Augusta – Day’s confidence should have been significantly boosted by his victory last weekend, which could have given him the confidence that he needed to hold his own for the weekend.

Here’s a look at a few of the players with big chances of victory this week:

Oak Hill is often where the best forwards thrive, which could put Tony Finau in the mix.

It’s been almost two years since the American athlete recorded the last of his top ten big races, but his final win over Rahm in Mexico showed Finau’s talent. The course should also fit the left-to-right fade.

Who will win the PGA Championship?

Here’s a look at a few of the players with big chances of victory this week:

Sure, Jon Rahm’s form and Masters win make him the world’s number one favourite, but Scottie Scheffler is in equally good shape in the first few months of 2023.

The 26-year-old seldom has a free day and seemed to be in pleasant touch at Byron Nelson last weekend. If he continues to run the four days without any problems, there is a very good chance that Scheffler is right in his claim.

Will Rahm win again?

Jon Rahm’s victory at the Masters at Augusta National saw him leap ahead of Scottie Scheffler to the top of the world rankings.

The Spaniard finished second with four wins in 11 matches and his most recent start at the Mexican Open. After his breakthrough victory at the US Open in 2021, he is in excellent form to get one step closer to winning the career Grand Slam.

However, five of the last six Masters champions continued to miss the discount on that year’s U.S. PGA Championship. Will Rahm be able to resist this trend and take the trophy?
