The Outlook

If the PGA Championship was held at Topgolf and didn’t require putting, I’d like Woodland’s chances to contend a lot more. The short stick has always been his weakness, as he’s as long as anyone off the tee and consistently hits greens. His putting has been predictably bad of late, but it is the most random part of predicting golf. If Woodland can get lucky here or there on the greens, the rest of his game is good enough to hang. He’s worth a DFS flier for sure.
