BAMBERGER: I don't think anyone would be surprised if Rory came out of his funk and won the PGA. It'll be hot; the fairways and greens will be soft. Those are conditions that he likes.
VAN SICKLE: My concerns are his putting and his drive. I don't think he's a great putter. If you're even thinking of being dominant, you have to be a great putter. Being pretty good isn't good enough. Second, it's a new world out there, where you become a superstar after one major, get more money than you'll ever spend and hang out with gorgeous tennis players. That's way more fun than pounding balls and working on your game.
MORFIT: A guy who wants it is Lee Westwood. He is abandoning the farm in England and moving his family to Florida. He's throwing everything into golf for one last-ditch effort to get the most out of his talent.
SHIPNUCK: Too bad he's pushing 40.
VAN SICKLE: We're headed for Kiawah Island's Ocean course for the PGA. I confess, I don't think much of the course. Do you love it or hate it?
GARRITY: I don't know, I haven't seen it in 20 years. All I remember from the 1991 Ryder Cup is that there was an ocean on your left or your right, depending which nine you were walking. Also, there was about a $26 cab ride from the 9th green to the 10th tee.
ANONYMOUS PRO: South Carolina in August is an odd choice. What, was Southern Hills booked? This PGA is going to be a sauna.
VAN SICKLE: Or a steam bath.
ANONYMOUS PRO: Maybe both. The course is going to be Whistling Straits South. Too much target golf, too many forced carries and semi-blind shots. There will be train wrecks galore.
