It’s nearing tee time in in Rochester, NY for the 105th PGA Championship. The 2023 event looks like a major challenger at the transformed Oak Hills East Course.

Check out more of my coverage that includes strokes gained stats and know driving distance matters more this week at Oak Hill, along with approach play and being able to make and save pars.


Last year’s PGA Championship was one we’ll never forget. Had 200/1 longshot Mito Pereira to win along with Will Zalatoris. Check out the 2022 PGA Championship previews and feel my pain as Pereira stood on the 72nd hole Sunday needing a par to win the major tournament. He made a double-bogey. Zalatoris was in a playoff with Justin Thomas, and Will Z also lost. Ugh.

Next week it’s the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial CC in Fort Worth, TX, where we cashed a big underdog match-up winner in 2021 during our smoking hot  17-5 on tournament match-ups start.
