And so to the second major championship of the year, being played over the Pete Dye Ocean course at Kiawah Island, which from the tips can play up to a mind numbing 7,937 yards. A little known fact about the Ocean course is that it has more seaside holes (ten) than any other course in the Northern hemisphere – I had to get my book out and check Western Gailes (eight).

Even though it is May the weather will play a big part in this years PGA Championship. In the 1991 Ryder Cup, during practice rounds players were hitting 7 and 8-irons into the par-3 17th hole, by Sunday, with the wind up and into their faces, they were hitting 3-irons to 3-woods.

Positioned on the eastern-most end of Kiawah Island, Pete Dye has used the natural beauty of Kiawah's seaside environment to develop this “links” style track. Originally the course was meant to sit behind the dunes, but Dye's wife, Alice suggested raising the course to allow unobstructed views of the Atlantic coastline from every hole and in the process making the course more demanding due to its exposure to the area's brisk and unpredictable sea breezes.

Dye designed up to 6 tees to allow for the wind to be taken into account on each hole, giving flexibility on hole lengths and setting up separate landing areas for when the wind is against or behind.

Large greens that are up to 50-yards in length take into account that a player may be hitting a long-iron approach shot one day and a short-iron approach shot the next.

My tips to Win:

As I said when I tipped Rory McIlroy 12/1 – with WilliamHill – for the Wells Fargo Championship, I haven’t tipped him this year, but it was his record at Quail Hollow that swung it for me and I think that is the same here at Kiawah Island. Rory will have a lot of positive memories as he arrives here this week and that win at the Wells Fargo would have been a massive confidence boost and he is rightly the bookies favourite to lift the Wanamaker trophy come Sunday afternoon.

Having tucked The Players Championship away earlier in the year Justin Thomas 14/1 – with BetFred – will be looking to add a second PGA Championship to the one he won back in 2017. By Justin’s own admission he is striking the ball well its just his putting that is off and if he gets that flat stick rolling again this week and you add that to his wonderful wedge play around the greens, I feel Thomas will be right in the thick of it again come Sunday afternoon.

The roars of his back can’t be ignored after taking the Valero Texas Open Jordan Spieth 28/1 – with RedZone – has only been outside the Top 15 once in his last eight starts, which includes four Top 5 finishes and as I am writing this he is inside the Top 5 at the AT&T Byron Nelson. There will be extra pressure on Jordan this week as he needs the PGA Championship to complete golfs Grand Slam and join the likes of Nicklaus, Woods, Hogan, Player and Sarazen.

Each-way tips:

With a win, two runner-up finishes and three other Top 5s from sixteen starts Viktor Hovland 33/1 – with RedZone – is in great form and he comes into this week on the back of successive third place finishes and to be honest I was very surprised to find him at these odds as I feel he is one of the favourites coming into this week.

Going by some of the odds that are being given out on a Sunday before a Major Championship some of you should get on these straight away, I feel Tommy Fleetwood at 60/1 – with OddsChecker – is great value and he showed that a few weeks rest since the RBC Heritage hasn’t dampened his competitive edge, finishing inside the Top 15 at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Outside tip:

I am sure these odds for Cameron Smith 100/1 – with RedZone – will be slashed by the time we get to Monday. Cameron has not been outside the Top 17 in his last five starts and three of those finishes are in the Top 10 including his fourth place at a tough Riviera Country Club for the Genesis Invitational. I think Smith’s runner-up finish at The Masters shows that he has what it takes to challenge for a Major Championship and I expect him to this week.

Longer odds tip:

It is Sunday afternoon and I am looking at one bookie who has Keegan Bradley at 200/1 – with RedZone – but I am sure that by the time Monday comes around they will dramatically slash these odds so you need to get in there quickly. Keegan had a third place finish in 2012 when the PGA Championship was last held at Kiawah Island and coming into this week on the back of four Top 25 finishes in his last four starts including a runner-up and a Top 5 the 2011 PGA Champion will be in confident mood.

As always good luck
