The final major of the year and the 100th PGA Championship rocks up at Bellerive Country Club in St Louis. The club started life back in 1897 as a 9-hole course and was known as the St Louis Field Club. In 1910 the membership incorporated Bellerive Country Club changing the club name in the process to become known as the Bellerive CC, after Louis St Ange De Bellerive who was the last French commander to be stationed in North America.

Scotsman Robert Foulis was commissioned to design the “new Bellerive” in Normandy where the club remained for 50 years. In 1955 the club decided to move west and Robert Trent Jones was commissioned to find a location for a new 18-hole course and on Memorial Day 1960 the “Green Monster of Ladue Road” opened for play.

Bellerive is routed round a winding creek that features on nine of the holes and has large elevated undulating greens and bold large bunkering. In 2006 son of RTJ, Rees Jones was commissioned to undertake a makeover of his father’s design and resolve the flooding issues of the lower -lying areas of the course.

The makeover involved re-grassing fairways, greens and tees, upgrading the drainage system, adding a number of back tees and reducing the size of several target areas. Rees also enlarged the pond on the 2nd hole so it became a hazard on both the tee and second shots. Fairway undulations were added to the 5th and 7th holes with the 7th green being relocated. The 9th has a fairway that rises steeply and is known for its 2nd shot approach which is played to a wide target area over a valley.

My tips to Win:

I think defending champion Justin Thomas 14/1 – with Bet365 – will be the man to beat this week. I don’t normally go for back-to-back winners, but I think Justin’s WGC Bridgestone win shows how good his golf game is right now after a week’s rest and practice.

I tipped Rory McIlroy 12/1 – with SportingBet – last week and he was right in the thick of it going into the final round but some poor putting and some bad breaks cost him. I do feel it is only a matter of time before Rory absolutely tears a field a part, it is just his putting at the moment and a spark of confidence in the flat stick and he will be away.

I did tip Justin Rose 22/1 – with Bet365 – at last week’s WGC but he had to pull out as he didn’t want to aggravate a back injury as he wanted to focus on this week’s final major of the year. With that in mind I am sure Justin has arrived here early and become familiar with the course and that can only stand him in good stead for the week ahead.

Each-way tips:

A sixth-place finish at the WGC Bridgestone see Patrick Cantlay 50/1 – with Ladbrokes – have his eleventh Top 25 finish of the season from his seventeen starts, five of which have been Top 10s and with four out of his last five starts coming inside the Top 15 I think these are great odds.

Another player who I tipped last week and is desperate to make the Ryder Cup team is Thorbjørn Olesen 80/1 – with SportingBet – who currently sits in fifth place on the European table and ninth on the World ranking table and with his Top 5 finish at last week’s WGC Bridgestone another Top 5 finish here will see him cement his position on the team.

Outside tip:

Ian Poulter 100/1 – with SpredEx is in great form at the moment having only been outside the Top 25 twice since his win at the Houston Open on the PGA Tour. Ian is desperate to make the Ryder Cup team and currently sits in tenth place on the world ranking points and twenty-second on the European table. Poulter knows a win here or a Top 5 finish could shoot him up both tables and probably into the team so I expect him to be in the thick of it again come Sunday.

Longer odds:

Try Cameron Smith – 200/1 – with PaddyPower



As always good luck
