Rory McIlroy +800
McIlroy couldn’t repeat his U.S. Open success at last month’s British Open Championship, finishing 25th after shooting in the 70’s in three of the four rounds. He’s been competitive at the last two PGA Championships, finishing tied for third in 2009 and 2011.
Phil Mickelson +1,100
Lefty won the PGA Championship in 2005 and is coming off a strong final round at the British Open in July. However, Mickelson missed the cut at last week’s The Greenbrier Classic, and is hoping to get back on track at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this week.
Luke Donald +1,400
Donald ranks No. 3 in the world, finishing among the Top 10 in eight on his 10 events this season. But, the Englishman missed the cut at the British Open, placed 45th at the U.S. Open in June, and finished 17th at the Canadian Open at the end of July. Donald, whose best finish at the PGA Championship was a T-3 in 2006, is sinking into a nasty slump heading into the final major.
Tiger Woods +1,400
Tiger says he’s healthy and ready to go after missing most of the season with injuries. Woods hasn’t played since withdrawing from the THE PLAYERS Championship in May, but is a four-time PGA Championship winner, with the most recent title coming in 2007. Tiger will also have a new caddie with him, playing with friend Byron Bell at least for this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, after firing long-time caddie Steve Williams.
Lee Westwood +1,400
Westwood has been all over the place in the majors this season. He finished 11th at the Masters, third at the U.S. Open, and missed the cut at the British Open last month. The No. 2 golfer in the world recently sought out the help of a sports psychologist to help fine tune his mind for the upcoming PGA Championship. Westwood’s best showing at the final major is a T-3 in 2009. Last year, the Englishman didn’t play in the PGA Championship due to injury.

This is a 1* Free Pick on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
This game is being played on a neutral in Australia. I don’t think that this neutral playing site will benefit either team so I am going to exploit the head to head matchup here. Cal is a team that went 9-27 combined from 2012 to 2014 before winning 8 games last year, behind a QB (Goff) that got drafted in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. This is also a Cal team that has only been a favorite away from home 3 times in the last 4 years. Cal lost their top 6 receivers and 5 of their top 6 tacklers. While Cal will have a reliable QB in Davis Webb from Texas Tech, he doesn’t have a lot of talent around him and it will take time for Webb to get in sync with these new receivers. I will also note that Cal has a new offensive coordinator. While it’s still the ‘Air Raid’ offense, there are new schemes being installed and it will take time before the Bears are putting up 40+ points. With only 3 seniors starting on defense, I like Hawaii to score enough points to cover this spread. Hawaii is 5-0 ATS in Week 1 the last five years and are undervalued in this spot. There's a new Head Coach for Hawaii and he used to play for the Rainbow Warriors. Nick Rolovich was the QB for Hawaii and will have former teammate Brian SMith as the offensive coordinator and associate head coach. I think these two guys are going to gel great and Hawaii can only get better as a team. Rolovich was the OC at Nevada the last 4 years. Rolovich came to Nevada after a wildly productive four-year run at Hawaii, where he directed one of the top passing offenses in the nation. He was the quarterbacks coach all four seasons and spent the last two years as the Warriors' offensive coordinator.In Rolovich’s first game with Nevada in 2012, Rolovich beat Cal, 31-24, as a 12 point road dog, so their is some ‘deja vu’ here and a great storyline. Hawaii returns 9 players on offense (73 offensive line starts). Senior QB Woolsey should be able to lead the team on some scores against this soft Cal defense. While Hawaii’s weakness is their secondary, the Cal Bears passing game is not going to be up to full speed yet. I think Hawaii will be improved offensively from last year and Cal will struggle to score, especially touchdowns and the defense is not good enough to offset the offensive regression. Special Teams: Senior utility kicker Sanchez was one of only five kickers nationally to handle all duties. As a field goal kicker, he converted 8-of-11 attempts, including two from 47 yards and a long of 50 to earn all-Mountain West Honorable Mention. So we have a quality FG kicker on our side here as well. While we are looking for touchdowns, all scores will help and this game should have it’s fair share of field goal opportunities.
