Getting into a major mood with some predictions

In this comment, Power Fade rightly notes that some of the golf bloggers have let themselves get distracted when we should be gearing up for the season’s last major. Fortunately, Power Fade gets the PGA talk going with an interesting prediction of Stephen Ames to take home the hardware. Interesting choice, but I am not convinced.

Of course, Tiger is an easy pick. But, interestingly, the folks at SI’s Golf Plus picked Retief Goosen (though this was before his surely tiring victory at the International). There are great major story lines around both Tiger and Goosen, and I do expect them to both be playing in the late afternoon on the weekend.

Notably, Tim McDonald at is here predicting who won’t win the PGA: “Any European.” Though Tim has history on his side, again I am not convinced because my pick is:

Sergio Garcia.

We hope readers might use the comments to make their own predictions, perhaps aided by this official site of the PGA Championship. You can further scout by checking on the pairings for the opening rounds at this link, where I was intrigued to see the groupings of (1) Sergio with Mickelson and Adam Scott, (2) Tiger with Michael Campbell and Greg Norman, (3) Vijay with John Daly and David Love, and (4) poor Mike Weir with David Duval and Ben Curtis.
