PGA Championship - Fantasy Picks

The PGA Championship kicks off tomorrow from Kiawah Island Golf Resort - Ocean Course and you couldn't paint a more beautiful setting.  Playing as a par 72 at 7,676 yards, Kiawah is located along 10 miles of pristine beach just south of Charleston, South Carolina.  Kiawah Island Golf Resort was recently named the No. 1 golf resort on the U.S. Mainland by readers of the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine.  Kiawah Island is also known as one of the top eco-friendly resorts in the U.S., and its beach was named one of the 10 best beaches in America by famed “beachologist,” Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach.  Have a look at this overview video put together by Back 9 Network...


The field at this years event couldn't be more competitive.  There are several players that have really been on their game lately, but after sizing up the field, here's my top choices for this tournament...

Keegan Bradley: The defending PGA champ comes to Kiawah on a high after his Bridgestone Invitational victory on Sunday that all but wrapped up a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Bradley is playing well at a good time.

Graeme McDowell: I like the way he's risen to the occasion in majors this year --tying for 12th at the Masters, second at the U.S. Open and fifth at the British Open. Plus, I think this links course will be right up his alley.

Bo Van Pelt: I like the way Van Pelt has been playing this season, and think he's due to step up his game a little more and land himself at the head of the field.

Here's a look at my complete picks for this weeks fantasy golf...
