PGA Championship Predictions 2016: Top 10 Picks for Baltusrol

The Open Championship is only barely in the rear-view mirror, but it's already almost time for the year's fourth and final major. Due to a revamped PGA TOUR schedule as a result of the Olympics tournament, the PGA Championship will take place at the end of July this year instead of its typical early-to-mid August time slot. Never has there been such a short turnaround in between majors, and it should make for a highly compelling--if not unpredictable--week of golf at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey. The lower course, a 7,462-yard Par 70, last hosted the PGA Championship in 2005, when Phil Mickelson beat Thomas Bjorn and Steve Elkington by one stroke. That's the only time the PGA Championship has been held here, but it has hosted the U.S. Open seven times, so there's plenty of history. The "Big Four"--Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth--will, of course, be the ones to watch this week, but as we've seen with 2016's first three majors, which have created three first-time major winners, anything is possible. With that in mind, you can click through the gallery for a closer look at my top 10 picks to hoist the PGA Championship's Wanamaker Trophy (Note: Odds courtesy of, and all numbers and stats don't include the RBC Canadian Open).
