PGA Championship Side Action: Sobel Taking Flier on Si Woo Kim

Aug 08, 2018 2:44 PM EDT
  • On the Action Network Golf Podcast, analysts Peter Jennings, Jason Sobel and Drew Stoltz, and current PGA Tour player Colt Knost conduct a snake draft for this week's PGA Championship.
  • The lowest-scoring golfer wins, although they must select value plays with their final two picks.
  • Knost took Dustin Johnson #1 overall while Jordan Spieth fell outside of the top 12 picks.

In what’s become a weekly tradition reverberating around the golf world like a Sunday roar at Augusta, The Action Network Golf Podcast crew is back for another snake draft for the PGA Championship.

This Week’s Rules

  • The Rules: The participants — Peter Jennings, Jason Sobel, Drew “The Sleeze” Stoltz and current PGA Tour Player Colt Knost — can pick any golfer with their first four picks, but they have to target players with odds worse than 100-1 with their final two selections.
  • The Scoring: Lowest-scoring golfer wins.
  • The Stakes: A friendly $100 per man, except for Colt who is playing for giggles.

Season Standings

WBC-Bridgestone Results: Sobel took home the victory with his first round pick of Justin Thomas, who won the title at Firestone.
