The PGA Championship at Baltusrol is here already?  I feel like I'm still catching my breath from the duel at The Open.  Mickelson and Stenson put on a show with their ball striking.  Stenson's putter was just a bit hotter that day.  I find it tough to anticipate the finish this weekend living up to that epic heavy weight showdown, but it does finish on two par 5's.  I don't know about you but I love when they play a place and everything about it screams hit the big stick.  They even have a long drive competition going on today.   I just watched Rory pipe one 340.  That should get it done, unless Bubba or DJ  can find the fairway.  This kind of tournament seems to have it's own kind of fireworks, I mean who wants to see the longest guys on the planet hitting 3 iron when they could be ripping the big dog.  Ahh...it's good to be back in America, right!

With that being said, I predict the straightest of the long ball hitters will come out on top this week.    I think the total driving stat will be a key for this championship.  Therefore, I think the winner will be Rory Mcilroy.  He is tied for 4th in total driving and hits his irons high enough to stop them on these greens.  There was plenty of rain on Monday but it looks like it will be dry the rest of the week.  The greens should be getting hard and fast going into the weekend.  I also like Keegan Bradley for the same reason.  Day, Spieth and DJ should be in the mix.  I also like Kuchar.  He is always solid and feel like it may be over due for him to win a major.  For my underdog dark horse, I'll take William McGirt as he drives it straight and long, while playing well as of late.
