Things to Consider for 2016 PGA Championship Sleeper Picks

Play the Hot Hand – This could be the #1 strategy to look at when choosing a sleeper pick for the PGA Championship. Guys that either played well at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational that odds makers or Top Fantasy Golf Sites have ranked low, or guys that have lit up the courses playing in the Quicken Loans National or the RBC Canadian Open. The hot golfer that has a low salary cap price may be the one that jumps in and wins the PGA Championship.

Speaking of the Odds – See what the odds makers say, everyone keys in on the favorites to win the PGA Championship and they are the ones with low odds, but many top golfers are given 50-1 or 80-1 odds and are set up just as well to win as the favorites are.

Course History – Isn’t as big a factor as the course rotates around each year. Some players may have a history with it because they played it as an amateur or grew up near it but this strategy usually is a non-factor in how a Sleeper Pick will play.

How is the Golf Course Set Up? – Is it a long course that the big hitters have an advantage with? Is it set up tough that the short iron players will be the better play? Learn what you can about the course – Our PGA Championship Preview Page will help out a bit.

Why do I need PGA Championship Sleeper Picks?
