PGA Championship 2021: McIlroy Revival And Spieth Resurgence

pga championship 2021

Kiawah Islands are hosting a round of the PGA Championship 2021 after nine years. This year’s second-largest golf competition has begun. However, the momentum of the field is not at the best place currently. That did not stop the days at Kiawah turning up amazing storylines, signaling a potentially amazing week ahead.

Outstanding Stories So Far In The PGA Championship 2021

Since his fiery famous streak in 2012, Rory McIlroy has only claimed 2 Majors. However, going into the PGA Championship 2021, he is once more golfing like the world’s best. 2 weeks ago, he had gained victory at the Championship of Wells Fargo. As such, at Kiawah, slightly more than 50% of the audience expects him to take the top step.

Since the beginning of the year, however, Jordan Spieth has been on top of the golfing world. But he only has 1 PGA Tour under his belt. However, statisticians and those who count strokes are expecting another title for Spieth in the PGA Championship 2021. He has just had a nice finish inside the top ten in AT&T’s Bryon Nelson. Moreover, this will be the fifth time that Spieth is trying to get a grand slam in his career. Only 5 other golfers have managed the feat.

On the other hand, Dustin Johnson, the official number one, is in quite a poor form currently. His last top 10 was in the Invitational of Genesis, back in February. He even missed out on the Masters. He also had withdrawn very late from AT&T’s Bryon Nelson last week. As such, the PGA Championship 2021 is a very uncertain prospect for the golfer. But, if anybody can turn on suddenly, it will be Johnson.

The Kiawah also can turn into a monster, known for its wind. In 2012, it thrashed the balls around whimsically. If the conditions return, the scores can be pretty high.
