The Outlook

Jhonny Vegas didn’t even win at Glen Abbey this year, so I don’t see why he’d contend at the PGA. He doesn’t have a top 20 yet in any major and hasn’t finished in the top 20 in any tournament in months. The only thing about Vegas is that his wins tend to come out of nowhere with no sign of form, so if you want to blindly fire at 200/1 based on that then go for it, but he won’t be on my card.
