Wes Reynolds on PGA
Wes offers some observations after Round 1 of the PGA Championship: Interesting prices: Tony Finau and Dustin Johnson at 30/1. DJ loves Bent/Poa. Finau gained everything on approach and strokes gained off-the-tee is his strength. . . . Added Justin Rose at 25/1 on in-play. . . . Shane Lowry also interesting at 50/1-60/1. Didn’t putt well but his irons were super sharp in R4 at Memphis and carried over to Thursday. . . . Jon Rahm at 25/1. Talent to get right back into this thing but his irons are off and that’s obvious weakness. . . . Tiger Woods at 25/1 played better than I thought but can he hold up for 4 rounds w/ so few reps?
