Prepping for the PGA. It’s the second major championship of the golf season.  It’s the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, in Rochester, NY. The reviews about the recent renovation project at the club are stellar. It’s the first time since the PGA of America changed the dates of this tournament from late summer to late spring that a club in the Northeast has hosted. World No.1 and MASTERS winner Jon Rahm is always a favorite, but so is World No.2, and last year’s MASTERS winner, Scottie Scheffler.

ESPN+ and ESPN will have coverage of the first two rounds with CBS picking up the coverage over the weekend. I like Tony Finau this week.  Maybe Collin Morikawa.  For a dark horse, how bout Cameron Young, or Tom Kim?
