2016 PGA Championship : TNT
This is one of the few events where the Golf Channel is shut out from. TNT kicks off the television coverage with from 1PM to 7PM on the tournament first two days. Weekend broadcast are shared by them (11AM to 2PM) with CBS taking it from there until 7PM on the final two days of the event. This is not the only major change as the future’s market is all shook up for this one. When was the last time that all of golf’s Big Three attended an event where none of them were the pre tourney favorite to take it down? The oddsmakers have bestowed Dustin Johnson as the favorite to take down this title at +700. Is it a power shift or something in particular that Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey presents to this field that have altered the futures market from the norm of recent times?
The fourth and final major of the year is one that rewards length off of the driver. High temperatures and lots of thunderstorms have softened the course even further. All that is really needed on the checklist for greatness here is driving length, accuracy, and momentum coming into this one. This is why the first time in close to a year is that Rory McIlroy actually lives up to the low price he gets on futures. He is +800 to win this event. His four top fives in the last few months combined with his stellar strokes gained off of the tee gives him excellent value at +800 to win this. The head to head wagering option of him verse Jordan Spieth is an easy selection on Rory over the course of the tourney. Hard to go wrong with him here.
Dustin Johnson against Jordan Spieth for the tournament heads up is your other consideration. Dustin is top five in fairways hit with him being very close to the top in overall distance. His momentum coming into this one is on a career high. Select these two golfers in futures wagering and against Jordan Spieth for your weekend profit. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at HRWager.
