Geno Bonnalie, whose boss, Joel Dahmen, finished T-69, had an opportunity to play the 2023 PGA Championship venue the morning after the final round and he took advantage of it. He also used the opportunity to set up an over/under bet for his score.
In a Ryder Cup year, it’s never too early to ask the big questions about what’s coming in the northern autumn. And this year, after Brooks Koepka’s win at the PGA Championship, we have a really big question: should he make the US Ryder Cup team?
Other than Brooks Koepka, Michael Block was the biggest thing going at this PGA Championship. And in some ways, you could argue that he was the biggest. After all, no one else heard his name echoing throughout the grounds of Oak Hill.
The Irishman has a slight chance to win on Sunday, but there’s also the feeling – so common in recent years – that there’s a tangible gravitational pull tugging him downward when he gets too close to the top spot at these majors.
For what it’s worth, Block isn’t trying to get ahead of himself, trying to block out the noise and stay in the moment to appreciate it for what it is. He’s already achieved something he doubted, which is if he had the game to compete with the best, and through 54 holes, he has.
