2021 PGA Championship Predictions: Day Two Three-ball Parlay
Brendon Steele cost us big time yesterday, he was the only player to let us down in our 84/1 PGA Championship parlay. Personally, I also chased the dream, and Steele let me down for a 3832/1 parlay...
Corey Conners leads the field after the opening day of the PGA Championship, largely due to his performance with the putter. Conners gained 3.69 shots on the field with the flatstick.
Keegan Bradley was our first round leader pick, he came T2 with Viktor Hovland, Brooks Koepka, Aaron Wise, Sam Horsfield and Cameron Davis.
Looking at the top of the market and the stats from the opening round of the 2021 PGA Championship, Keegan Bradley looks the bet. Bradley was unbelievable tee to green, but dropped shots with the putter. He was one of only three players to drop shots with the putter who finished under par.
Sungjae Im is probably the one to avoid in the PGA Championship odds market, as gaining 3.29 shots with the putter just isn't sustainable.
Anyway, that's enough about yesterday's near misses, let's get onto our day two PGA Championship predictions.
PGA Championship Day Two Predictions
The weather could make things spicy at Kiawah Island, with the wind expected to pick up for the afternoon session. Keep that in mind if you are making any predictions in the PGA Championship odds market.
Matt Jones to beat Dylan Frittelli & Larkin Gross
The first leg of my PGA Championship day two parlay is Matt Jones to win his three-ball. Jones is a pretty solid player in windy conditions, and game looked in good shape on the opening day. Frittelli's putting problems continued, and was massively helped out by gaining 3.37 shots around the green.
No disrespect to Larkin Gross, but this is a shoot out between Jones and Frittelli.
Byeong-Hun An to beat George Coetzee & Derek Holmes
This is another three-ball which I'm classing as a bit of a match-up, this time between Byeong-Hun An and George Coetzee. Despite rating Coetzee, this isn't the course for him and he's accuracy off the tee could be a big concern with the wind.
Hun An is in pretty poor form, but if he goes round in +1/+2 he should win this three-ball.
Tyrrell Hatton to beat Rickie Folwer & Adam Scott
I wasn't as upbeat as others when it came to Tyrrell Hatton's chances at the PGA Championship this week, and I still don't think he's a play in the main odds market. However, he's a bet when it comes to this three-ball.
Rickie Fowler performed a lot better than expected, but given his recent performance it's hard to see him gaining 2.77 shots in approach two days running. Hatton's game looks in good shape, and didn't really shine or disappoint in any area.
Jason Dufner to beat Jimmy Walker & John Daly
I'd imagine there are plenty of golf handicappers making this one of their day two predictions. Jason Dufner played well on the opening day, and is one play in the field who will welcome the wind. Dufner regularly loses shots of the tee, so that was no surprise, his putter firing was a bit of a shock.
I'd love to see John Daly shoot low, but just can't see it happening, and I don't think Jimmy Walker will be posting much better than +3 today.
Robert MacIntyre to beat Cameron Champ & John Catlin
Cameron Champ's game is in a pretty poor place, and this wind will not be welcome. John Catlin gained 4.59 shots with the putter, but lost 5.31 in approach, neither of these are sustainable.
Robert MacIntyre is normally a handy putter, but he lost 2.56 shots with the flatstick yesterday. MacIntyre's also very handy in the wind.
Jason Kokrak to beat Kevin Na & Tom Lewis
Jason Kokrak was one of my PGA Championship predictions pre-event, and I'm sticking by my man despite Tom Lewis playing well yesterday.
Despite only gaining 0.49 shots off the tee yesterday, Kokrak still finished one under.
