3Jack Golf's 2015 PGA Championship Rundown

The 2015 PGA Championship is at Whistling Straits this year. Here’s what the data shows will be the ‘critical holes’:

#2, 591 yards, par-5
#13, 404 yards, par-4
#16, 569 yards, par-5
#17, 223 yards, par-3


Here’s are my top-10 picks to win the PGA Championship:

Jordan Spieth (6/1)
Jason Day (12/1)
Bubba Watson (15/1)
Justin Rose (20/1)
Rickie Fowler (20/1)
Henrik Stenson (25/1)
Jim Furyk (40/1)
Hideki Matsuyama (40/1)
Shane Lowry (50/1)
Keegan Bradley (80/1)
Danny Lee (100/1)


Here are my top-5 dark horse picks:

Brooks Koepka (40/1)
Paul Casey (60/1)
John Senden (150/1)
Jason Bohn (200/1)
Daniel Berger (250/1)


I didn’t pick McIlroy due to his recent injury. I will say that I like how this PGA Championship is shaping up as I think there are a lot of sleepers that could get into contention for this event like Kevin Chappell (150/1), Kevin Kisner (80/1), Jason Dufner (100/1), Zach Johnson (50/1), Steven Bowditch (150/1), Soren Kjeldsen and David Lingmerth (125/1) which could make for fantastic viewing.
