The PGA Championship waltzes across the New York Turnpike exiting at Rochester, New York and settling in just southeast of Downtown in a little Burg called Pittsford. Now Pittsford is like Pittsburgh and Oxford slammed together; on this side-steel workers, Iron City beer, and the Deer Hunter (Bobby DeNiro); on the other side-Shoes, Dictionaries, and guys with one-eye-brows. Married together, these 2 names produce drunken Intellectuals like Deepak Chopra, Carl Sagan, or a Spelling Bee Judge (pick one) which has nothing to do with golf. Mickelson is a fan favorite in New York orthat is the popular belief by writing Hacks: Mickelsons a fan favorite to drunken New Yorkers who think theyre Intellectuals; referred to as Public Safety Workers (reference source >> Bethpage Black). Okay, lets see who is going to floating to the top of this PGA creamery (pssst: It aint gonna be Tiger)

Rory McIlroy is STILL playing all Nike stuff and cant compete! Furykummm, no waythough Oak Hills Pro Shop is looking for an Assistant Pro? Just sayin. Tom Watson is in the field but Ole Mr. Watson shakes more than a 25 cent vibrating bed-hes out. Tiger No Likey the High Rough but I predict he will have at least one hurtful chop out of the lettuce for Paul Azinger to over-analyze. Luke Donald might be a contender after discovering all Standard Bearers around Donald will be fitted with throw-back Buffalo Bills helmets in honor of the Bills expected losing season (Remember? He smoked that girl at Merion in the noodle. HA!). Henrik Stensons is going to be Top 5, Zach Johnson (if he keeps it out of the long rough) will be there at the wire, and SergioSergio! Sergio will play one round great to get in contention, shoot his way out of contention, then quietly shoot 73 to finish around 18th. Dustin Johnson and Colsaerts? Not here; the rough is too deep and Colsaerts isnt playing well. Again, the Argentinean High-Noon Beast Angel Cabrera will somehow make it happen. Russell Henley, Stallings, and Hideki Matsuyama all have an awesome shot at picking up the 1stPlace check.

The real fun will be watching the PGA of America qualifiers. These automatic qualifiers are Club Pros who get an invite into the tournament for all their hard work; driving around courses in golf carts, screwing up peoples swings, getting 75% off of god-awful golf shirts, and receiving unlimited refills of Mountain Dew in the Club Restaurant! These Cats are going to shoot in the thousands this weekend—-except 1; Bob Sowards. Sowards is a friggin player. Take it from-I know-Sowards has a real shot at a Top 10 in Pittsburgh-iford! Look for Sowards to make the cut and make a big move. Hes older and might fade, but Sowards can P-L-A-Y!! Stenson, Johnson, Henley, and Cabrera, with Stenson by a nose at the wire!!

Short Favorite:Henrik Stenson(25Odds to 1 to Win)
Stenson has been playing well and will be there to pick up the check when Tiger stays in the Love Grass. Stenson is a monster!

Middle of the Road:Zach Johnson(40Odds to 1 to Win)
Zach doesnt hit it far but he hits it straight; a must with 3 -4 thick, gnarly rough. Hes been playing very wellhas a win in his last five and a Top 10 at the British.

Longshot:Bob Sowards(1000Odds to 1 to Win)
Im tellin ya; Sowards can P-L-A-Y. If he gets the putter working and stays out of the junk, he can be there

Tiger Woodsvs.Phil Mickelson(our pick to win:Phil Mickelson)
Great bargain here as Mickelson is almost a 3:1 Dog by proposition. Tiger DOES NOT play well in high rough. Mickelson does play well in high rough. Although Mickelson is a Dumsky, he should walk away with this matchup!

Luke Donaldvs.Dustin Johnson(our pick to win:X)
Mirror, mirror on the wall. Whos the coolest player of them all? Oh! Its you Dustin!! Get outta hereDustin is a Poser (although he did win the RBC??) and I think hes cooked. Donald by more than a few here. Thats it for this week! Good Luck (although I dont believe in random processes!).
