The August heat and predicted wet conditions should lengthen the course and play right into Rory’s game and give him an advantage over the field. He’s had success at Quail Hollow in the past and if he can get the putter going, I think he gets it done and brings home the Wanamaker trophy.

DJ hasn’t been the same player since his fall earlier this year at the Masters, but he’s showed some promise the past few weeks. He says that his game continues to get more consistent following his injury, and it can’t come at a more perfect time. DJ’s length off the tee and wedge game will give a step up on the competition this week on a long course in Quail Hollow and I think he gets back on track in a big way.
