2019 PGA Championship Expert Picks and Preview

2019 PGA Championship LogoThe second major of the PGA Tour season is here and with the PGA Championship comes the next chance to win $1 Million playing fantasy golf contest – For all the details of the BIGGEST Fantasy Golf Contest check out our DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire Preview Page. While PGA tour players are playing for a million dollar paycheck, fantasy golf players will be too.

The PGA Championship has always been more of an afterthought of a major as it is not as prestigious as the other 3 majors. With the move to earlier in the season it is hoped that the major will feel more important than it has in previous years. Nonetheless, winning the PGA Championship still comes with all the exemptions and prestige on Tour that the other 3 majors carry. There will be another solid field of golfers to choose from for your fantasy golf contest and the event itself is still worth watching.

2019 PGA Championship Tourney Preview

Big Changes this year! The PGA Tour has completely overhauled the schedule and moved the PGA Championship to where the PLAYERS Championship used to be in May in hopes of making it feel more like a major and not a warm up for the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The 2019 PGA Championship will be played at Bethpage State Park on the Black Course and players that have been around for years know how tough the course really is. With the top golfers playing as well as they are, the 2019 PGA Championship will most likely go down to the final hole and the leaderboard will be littered with mostly favorites but also some sleepers that you may not have considered.

Don't forget to read our Sleeper Picks for the PGA Championship.
