The 103rd edition of the PGA Championship is in action for the upcoming mid-week. This is the second major event of the year, as the Masters got over at Augusta last month. The Japanese native Hideki Matsuyama was the winner of the event and victory has the least possibility to touch him in this tournament. The Kiawah Island in South Carolina is chosen, this is not the first occasion the island is opted to host PGA. In 2012, Rory McIlroy won the Championship in the same island.
A champion of the 2018 and 2019 PGA Championship, Brook Koepka’s knee injury stops him from participating in the 2021 PGA Championship. Notably, apart from the PGA Tour, Koepka won the World’s major another two times. Following the car accident in February, Tiger Woods will not be seen in the field. Collin Morikawa will be back as a defending Champion after completing as the best at TPC Harding park by last year this time.
Last year’s crowd less worry is eased this time, 10,000 fans will be allowed this time on each day. After the success of Mcllory in 2012, the Kiawah is regarded as one of the most difficult for the elite group of golfers. The field is set to be with 156 golfers for this upcoming championship.

Based on the odds, Rory Mcllroy is a clear favourite. The Irish man will add another PGA cup along with those he got in 2012 and 2014. The field is also not a new one to him. If the title becomes his, he will be the sixth man with three PGA wins. In the 2021 Masters, Mcllroy nailed all the top finishers.
The other contenders who have good odds to win are Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau. Apart from Mcllroy, these four might have chances to impress South Carolina.
As for Dustin Johnson, he is the No.1 ranked player in the world and his chances have increased dramatically in this PGA trophy. The PGA tour will unveil great surprises at Kiawah Island. The defending U.S. Open Champion, Bryson DeChambeau is also on the list of the top favourites. Patrick Reed, who is in the strong run, will give his best play.
Sadly, Jon Rahm’s eliteness is fading as the golfer mostly fails to turn strong runs into victories. The point to note is, Rahm completed as the top ten in his last 12 tournaments. As a winner of the Valero Texas Open last month, Jordan Spieth is also posing a simple threat for the other Golfers. The Masters 2021 expert, Hideki Matsuyama will also take his momentum to next level.
