2020 PGA Championship Expert Picks and Preview

2020 PGA Championship LogoThe 1st and only major of the 2020 PGA Tour season is here - the PGA Championship - and with it comes the next chance to win $1 Million playing fantasy golf!

For all the details of the BIGGEST Fantasy Golf Contest of the year, 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, being not as prestigious as the other 3 majors, but with the crazy mixed up year due to Covid-19, 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 worth watching.

Last year, moving the PGA Championship to May was a big change...but, boy did 2020 make that into an afterthought!

Brooks Koepka will try to be the first golfer to win 3 PGA Championships in a row since Walter Hagen in the 1920's...but with other top names looking to add to their majors' resume like Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas playing on what may be a pretty tough golf course, we should be in for one hell of a PGA Championship tournament!
