It's the final major of the year and what an exciting US PGA Championship this could be. Quail Hollow plays host to this years championship and there have been a few alterations to the course that we normally see the Wells Fargo Championship played on, which was originally designed by George Cobb in 1961.

The course has undergone a series of improvements and redesigns, including modifications to several holes by Arnold Palmer in 1986 and a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997. The course measures 7,442-yards, it’s very much a shot shapers course from the tee and around its tree-lined doglegs, the greens are very fast here during the tournament and a premium will be placed on that aspect of the game.

The changes to the course are a new type of grass called Champion Ultradwarf Bermuda grass has been installed on the greens replacing the bent grass. Thousands of trees have been removed. Lastly there has been a new designed start to the course with the old first and second holes being made into a 540-yard par 4!! A new par 3 second hole and the 11th has seen extra bunkering added.

The four par-5s are all reachable in two and there are two drivable par-4s at the eighth and fourteenth. The 14th measures 346 yards, a 15-acre lake frames the left side of the hole and the rough on that side slopes down to the water. The narrow landing area measures about 27 yards across and is guarded by two bunkers on each side. The two-tiered green has bunkers guarding the left front and middle of the green, and a collection area waits just off the right front of the green for short approach shots hit off line.

There should be plenty of birdies and eagles this week but don’t expect the pro’s to tear the course apart, the average winning score here is 12.5 under par.

My tips to win:


I think Rory McIlroy 8/1 – with BetFred – has to be favourite this week not just because he comes into this week striking the ball well – his short game does need to improve – but his record at Quail Hollow is second to none. Rory has two wins here and a runner-up finish and who can forget him shooting 66, 61 in his final two rounds to take his first PGA Tour victory.

I don’t normally pick players who have won the week before; back-to-back winners are very rare, but Hideki Matsuyama 12/1 – with Ladbrokes – has three wins and three runners-up finishes so far this year and has come back into great form over the last couple of weeks. Hideki also improved each year he has teed it up at Quail Hollow finishing 38th and 11th and after his final round 61 at the weekend his golf game is obviously in great shape.

Another player who has a good record over the Quail Hollow track is Rickie Fowler 18/1 – SportingBet – who has a win and a couple of Top 10s. Fowler has not been outside the Top 25 at this years Major Championships with his best finish coming at the US Open where he went into the final round in contention but could only manage a round of 72. I think playing at Quail Hollow represents a great chance for the Californian to win his first major championship.

My each-way tips:

At first I was surprised to see Justin Rose 40/1 – with SportingBet – this far down the betting odds, but when you look at his record since the play-off defeat at The Masters that result certainly seems to have affected him more than what everyone initial thought. Rose has had two missed cuts with his best result being a 54th place at the Open Championship. Justin has a mixed bag of finishes at Quail Hollow but his last two outings have seen him finish in the Top 5 and I expect him to perform at the last major of the year.

Phil Mickelson 66/1 – with PaddyPower– has never won at Quail Hollow but he does have a runner-up and has only been outside the Top 10 twice since 2010, so it is a course that he can score on. Phil isn’t the straightest off the tee but he has obviously found a way to play well here and I am sure he knows his chances of adding to his major championship collection are starting to slim, but with his record here I am sure he fancies his chances this week.

My outside tips:

This week sees a slew of great outside bets of players who have played well at Quail Hollow. A lot of bookmakers will be paying out on the Top 7 and that gives you a great chance on some outside tips, the shortest price of these is Ian Poulter 125/1 – with William Hill – comes into this week on the back of a good run of form and a weeks rest after his third place finish in the Canadian Open coming back to a course where he has had a Top 5 should see him in positive mood this week. Webb Simpson 150/1 – with BetVictor – has a runner-up and a forth place finish here. Ross Fisher 200/1 – with 32Red – who has been in good form, his last outing here see him finish in the Top 10. Sean O’Hair 250/1 – with Bet365 – who is a past winner here and finally Daniel Summerhays 300/1 – with BetVictor – who last year finished in the Top 5 at the PGA Championship and finished inside the Top 15 in his last appearance at Quail Hollow. Daniel has had a good year, he just needs to put a good final round together.
