PGA Championship picks:
Gary Lemke (Head of Team Compleat)
Louis Oosthuizen: I’m gambling on the weather being bleak this week. And who can forget how Louis won the 2010 Open Championship?
Matt Wallace: One of the new breed of fearless, confident and exciting talents. Comes into the event in red-hot form.
Jon Rahm: Just about on everyone’s list as a future Major champion. And one will bring two…
Jordan Spieth: How can a 25-year-old three-time Major champion and former World No 1 be ranked No 39? This is the only Major he hasn’t won.
Wade Pretorius (Digital Editor)
Brooks Koepka: The defending champion and most bookies’ favourite. Hard to picture a Sunday afternoon leaderboard without his name front and centre.
Rickie Fowler: The best player without a Major? That tag could very well be erased from his name come Sunday. Fowler has fared well on long, tough courses, and Bethpage could suit him if it plays as long as many suggest.
Jordan Spieth: Chasing the career slam, I have a feeling Spieth has turned the corner. Might not win it, but like Koepka above, there’s every chance he’ll be among the leaders in round four.
Aaron Wise: My wildcard pick as I look to get my tally to 100. Living on a hope and prayer with this one…
Juandre Joubert (Social media manager)
Brooks Koepka: He can outdrive almost anyone on tour and will use that to his advantage to be there or thereabouts come Sunday.
Tommy Fleetwood: Heart over head? Or a bit of both? One of my favourite golfers, and seeing him win a Major will give me a lot of joy.
Justin Harding: His stellar season continues and he fared well at the Masters. Not one to be frightened of the big stage, he’s energised by the lights rather than enervated.
Jordan Spieth: If Tiger can get back to winning ways after all he’s been through, surely Spieth can do the same?!
