The PGA tournament takes place this weekend at the Lower Course at Baltusrol in Springfield, N.J., for the final major of 2016.
We will know who the best golfer in the world is by Sunday evening. As the defending champion, if Jason Day wins, it will be a done deal; he will be No. 1 and considered the best. But I think it has been more about Dustin Johnson, who’s been hot. Winning the US Open at Oakmont was a coming out party for him.
English professional golfer Danny Willett, who won the 2016 Masters, looks like a one-hit wonder. Henrik Stenson won The Open at 40 and could be relevant, but it’s a tough ask to win two majors in a row.
Will the “Golden Child” Jordan Spieth show us more of the player who won two majors in 2015? So I’m throwing in two names right now to prove I’m not a a polesitter! Brandt Snedeker and Bubba Watson.
Watson has been there and done that plus he’s a long hitter who needs to have the 120 yard and in-game going, with the putter as key. I like Snedeker because of his temperament. Does that equate to winning? Maybe! But in the year guys are winning majors for the first time, Snedeker at 35 hasn’t won a major yet. Maybe it’s his time.
