    — Nick Piastowski (@nickpia) June 5, 2020

    Alan Bastable 

    Sleeper decide: Cameron Younger, +8,000. He’s not taking part in like a “sleeper” with a T2 and T3 in his previous two begins — and on two very completely different golf programs (TPC Potomac and Harbour City). However he’s a participant with whom informal followers are nonetheless not acquainted. He’ll win a serious, and sure quickly. Loopy expertise. No actual weaknesses. Additionally, the neatest picker I do know has been crowing about Younger for months.  

    James Colgan 

    Sleeper decide: Davis Riley, +25,000: Riley is striping it in addition to anybody in skilled golf proper now. It’s an extended shot, however this can be a cube roll I be ok with taking.

    Dylan Dethier   

    Sleeper decide: I’ll offer you two! Keegan Bradley at +10,000 and Cameron Tringale at +25,000. Talking of excessive numbers! Good iron gamers with good fingers and (hopefully!) scorching putters. 

    Connor Federico

    Sleeper decide: Cameron Champ, +10,000. This isn’t the identical Southern Hills the place Tiger received in 2007. This week, the course will play 300 yards longer, and its fairways a lot wider. Enter the Tour’s longest hitter (323.5 yds/drive). In his previous two begins, Champ has been channeling that energy into higher scoring, with a T10 on the Masters and T6 on the Mexico Open. 

    Luke Kerr-Dineen

    Sleeper decide: Keegan Bradley, +1,000. Talking of excellent ball-strikers and sketchy putters: Keegan Bradley! The previous PGA champ is twelfth on tour in SG: Tee to Inexperienced, and within the midst of a formidable T8, T4, T2 run. The putter might want to get scorching for him to stroll away with the trophy, however he might find yourself within the high 10 even with a chilly one.

    Jessica Marksbury

    Sleeper decide: Marc Leishman, +10,000. Leish has fallen off a bit since his early-season type, and he’s missed the previous three PGA cuts. However there’s one thing about Southern Hills that I feel will swimsuit the Aussie to snap that streak.

    Zephyr Melton 

    Sleeper decide: Y.E. Yang, +100,000. TIL Y.E. Yang is within the discipline. Let’s go along with the legend himself for a DEEP sleeper.

    Nick Piastowski 

    Sleeper decide: Cameron Younger, +8,000. 4 high fives this season, two of which have are available his previous two begins. He’s a sleeper solely due to the percentages. 

    Tim Reilly

    Sleeper decide: Robert MacIntyre, +15,000. I’m undecided he’s able to get the job performed on a serious stage, however Robert MacIntyre is certainly one of golf’s up-and-comers who has been taking part in properly of late. With +15,000 odds, I’ll take a flier on somebody who I see as a future main champion. Why not now?

    Darren Riehl

    Sleeper decide: Matthew Wolff +12,500. Matthew Wolff hasn’t precisely had the trajectory that we anticipated. However not too long ago, it appears he has turned the nook, particularly in the case of his psychological recreation. For +12,500, I’ll wager that we see flashes of 2020 Wolff at Southern Hills.

    Claire Rogers 

    Sleeper decide: Richard Bland, +50,000. We had a 50-year-old win the PGA final 12 months, so why can’t a 49-year-old get it performed this week? Bland fell simply wanting incomes a Masters invite this 12 months, so I’d like to see him have an awesome main week at Southern Hills.

    Josh Sens

    Sleeper decide: Cameron Champ, +10,000. A feast or famine participant, Champ has been flashing some robust type these days. Clearly, we’ll want a scorching week with the putter. However Champ has such a excessive ceiling, there’s huge potential upside right here.

    Jonathan Wall 

    Sleeper decide: Justin Rose, +12,500. Rose completed T12 the final time the PGA Championship was contested at Southern Hills, in 2007. For no matter purpose, he’s embraced Perry Maxwell designs throughout his profession. Wins on the U.S. Open (Merion) and Colonial had been contested on programs that characteristic Maxwell’s fingerprints. Is it a stretch? Possibly. Then once more, I’m looking for worth at a serious.
