    Feels pretty amazing to have another major championship so soon. I think I'm going to really like moving the PGA up to May.

    Tiger is the favorite. I think it's just too much to ask for him to win another one but he has always played very well at Bethpage. Tiger is always better at difficult courses than at birdie-fests, imo.

    Koepka and DJ, as always. Xander Schauffele should be up there. A dark horse might be Paul Casey, who is straight off the tee but still has some length.

    I'm disappointed in Tiger. If there was ever a moment to stand up and do a mike drop, that one was perfect and he let it slip right on by.

    Tiger, Molinari and Koepka in the morning. Rahm, DJ and Spieth in the afternoon.

    2 doubles... If he can get back to around E then he has an outside shot. I expect winning score to be around -9. Koepka might make that look silly, though.

    That eagle Tiger just made will help.

    When he is dialed in he is like a cyborg. Sometimes I watch him and wonder if he has ever made a bogey.

    Sometimes I watch him and wonder if he’d be able to hit the ball so far without his juice.

    Looks like Tiger wasn't really pumped about the PGA going in. Didn't practice on the course ahead of the tourney and his play today has looked like someone who is doing just enough to barely miss the cut so he can get out of town. Koepka dominating surely hasn't given Tiger any incentive to hang around for the weekend and have to answer a bunch of questions about his poor play.

    So, what is it about Koepka's game that makes him so good in majors.

    Kuchar hasn't made any kind of run this week. He's having such a good year. I assume this may not be a good type of course for his game. Is there a chance he will drop out of the FedEx point lead?

    Koepka is the closest thing to Tiger we have seen come along. He is the strongest, best conditioned athlete in the field. He hits it sp long. He has great strength out of the rough. He points to majors. He can go low on the toughest courses.

    He does not move the ball as well as Tiger. But, he can discourage the field when he is on. Sadly, for golf, he just does not show a lot of personality or charisma. But, what he is doing in majors is extraordinary.

    It makes me ponder how valuable of a metric major wins is. Everyone talks about how difficult it is to win a major, but is it really that much harder than winning the players, for example?
