Collin Morikawa is bringing home the Wanamaker Trophy — ideally in tact — and a whole lot more. The 23-year-old bested a tough field Sunday with a 6-under 64 to win the 2020 PGA Championship by 2 strokes at 13 under, and he takes home a $1.98 million prize. 

A purse topping $11 million will be distributed to the top 79 finishers at this week’s  PGA Championship. The payout for this year’s edition of the PGA Championship is identical to last year’s, though it remains one of the biggest purses of the season to date.

Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey will each take home $968,000 as second-place finishers splitting the next two prize amounts. Johnson’s birdie on the 18th hole, even knowing Morikawa had clinched the victory, turned out to be very valuable: He made $500,000 more in the two-way tie for second than he would have in a six-way tie for third. 

San Francisco was an incredible backdrop for an exceedingly great event in the lone major of the 2019-20 season.

Let’s take a look at how the prize money broke down for the 102nd PGA Championship. Golfers that tie for a place split an average of the combined winnings of their respective spots on the leaderboard.

2020 PGA Championship leaderboard breakdown: Coverage, scores, highlights as Dustin Johnson leads after 54 – CBSSports.com

A star-studded Moving Day at the 2020 PGA Championship saw nearly a handful of players tied for the lead at one point. By the end of the day, there were 11 golfers within three strokes of the lead heading into Sunday’s final round at TPC Harding Park. 

The first major championship of 2020 has nearly guaranteed a must-see finish with Dustin Johnson holding the 54-hole lead at 9 under while Brooks Koepka, Jason Day, Bryson DeChambeau and Tony Finau are among those still in striking distance. Of course, established names aren’t the only ones in the mix as Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Champ and Collin Morikawa are among those who would love to kickstart their budding careers with a major win on Sunday afternoon in San Francisco. 

Saturday’s round was a tribute to the challenge that TPC Harding Park provides. D.J., Scheffler and Morikawa soared to the top of the leaderboard by posting 65s, but the late-afternoon groups were left grinding through foggy, windy conditions that made scoring difficult. Of the final four pairings on the course only two players, Champ and Koepka, scored under par on Saturday. 

Keep on reading for a breakdown of the top of the leaderboard with top names to watch heading into Sunday.

1. Dustin Johnson (-9): A scoring machine this week, D.J. has 17 birdies through three rounds. While his 65 on Saturday tied for round of the day — and his eight birdies were the best in any major round throughout his career — it could have been even better if not for a bogey on No. 6 and a double bogey on No. 9. Even through the putter let him down on that double, he was lights out on the greens otherwise and now has a chance to make another run at his first PGA Championship after a runner-up finish a year ago at Bethpage Black. 

T2. Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Champ (-8): The rookie (Scheffler) and rising star (Champ) represent the closest thing we have to a darkhorse in this heavyweight battle, as even Morikawa has become an established name with his win after the layoff and the narrative of his made cuts streak. Champ has the PGA Tour success to his name that might put him a cycle ahead in the maturation process, but Scheffler has not let his inexperience as a pro impact his comfort at TPC Harding Park. The rookie says the course fits his style, and after shooting a 66 on Thursday and a 65 on Saturday, he’s got to be considered a threat to crash the party on Sunday. 

T4. Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Paul Casey (-7): There’s nothing more enticing than seeing Koepka bounce back from three straight bogeys on the back nine to birdie two of his final three holes and then say that his game was better than what the score reflects. Confidence is at no short supply for the two-time defending champion as he goes for a three-peat on Sunday, though it will take a little bit better play on approach shots to avoid the kind of setbacks that put him two shots back. Morikawa defied the expectations for his game with a hot putter in his rise up the leaderboard, while Casey will be looking to change the narrative around his game as a solid player who ends up a stroke or two away from trophy-hoisting at the end of the championship. 

T7. Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau, Justin Rose, Jason Day, Daniel Berger, Tommy Fleetwood (-6): Just an absolute group of studs here three strokes off the lead with two major winners and two of the players with wins since the restart included in the bunch. DeChambeau was excellent on Saturday with seven birdies, the last of which was a 95-footer to close out his round of 66. Day and Fleetwood faced some of the toughest conditions on the course as some of the last players out and saw ups and downs in their ride to even par. There was no absence of spark that might indicate a fade from contention, though the pace will require a score three or four strokes better (at a minimum) to chase down the leader. 

T13. Haotong Li, Xander Schauffele, Matthew Wolff, Si Woo Kim, Joel Dahmen (-5): Li didn’t blow his chance to win the PGA Championship on Saturday, but the wayward drives and lack of back nine bogeys did make the proposition much tougher after the 54-hole leader shot a 73 on Saturday. A 67 or 68 is not out of the realm of possibility, but he’ll need the leaders to fall back for a chance to win. Of this group the player most likely to post a 65 and challenge for the title is likely Schauffele, thought what would mark a significant improvement after shooting even par on Friday and just one-under on Saturday. 

T34. Justin Thomas and eight others (-1): At one point in the early part of the day, J.T. was up inside the top 20 and just four strokes off the lead following a birdie train on the front nine. Unfortunately, the No. 1 player in the world ran out of steam coming in and lost his place on the leaderboard with a couple of contention-costing bogeys down the stretch. 

T43. Rory McIlroy and eight others (E): It looked like Rory might be ready to make some noise after two uninspiring rounds, but four bogeys on his final six holes kept the two-time PGA Championship winner from being in the mix heading into Sunday. McIlroy has been average off the tee this week — below average for his standard — and that’s kept him from scoring opportunities that are needed to keep pace with the leaders. 

T59. Tiger Woods and eight others (+2): Thursday’s 68 by Woods created a buzz and ultimately put Tiger in position to make the weekend, but a second-straight round of 72 has left the Big Cat grinding out what’s left of the tournament out of the spotlight. On one hand, it’s a success that Woods has worked his way around the course without too much concern for his health, but the (new) putter that was hot on Thursday has not regained form since.

Good round from Paul Casey who played his last 11 holes in 2 under. That’s crazy impressive.

Brooksie birdies the 16th and has a birdie putt on 17. He can feel it slipping, currently trying to get it back a little bit.

There is so much going on right now, but it feels like DJ may have just won the tournament with that 31 on the back nine. He shot 65 with a double!

Brooks goes bogey-bogey to fall back to -6. Haotong just lost a ball in the trees. DJ just tied the lead. Many things are happening.

2020 PGA Championship leaderboard breakdown: Coverage, scores, highlights from Round 2 at TPC Harding Park – CBSSports.com

The second round of the 2020 PGA Championship on Friday was a rollercoaster that left us with a major shakeup at the top of the leaderboard. Haotong Li took over the No. 1 spot in the standings with a fantastic 5-under 65, while Tommy Fleetwood jumped 46 spots on the leaderboard to T2 after posting a week-best 6-under 64.

Tied with Fleetwood in second is Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, Justin Rose, Jason Day and Mike Lorenzo-Vera, all of whom sit at 6 under and two strokes off Li’s lead. But there are plenty of big-name golfers easily within striking distance of Li entering Moving Day on Saturday.

Let’s take a look at the leaderboard breakdown through 36 holes at TPC Harding Park.

1. Haotong Li (-8): With a bogey-free round of 65 on Friday, Li rose 11 spots in the standings and took over as the leader entering the weekend. His hot streak through two rounds is as shocking as it is unpredictable, after he finished T75 last week at the St. Jude Invitational and missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament. And he’s maybe more surprised than you. “Yeah, I didn’t even think I could play like this this week, especially, like you said, got no confidence,” he said post-round Friday. Perhaps that’s why he spent at least four hours practicing after his round.

T2. Brooks Koepka, Tommy Fleetwood, Daniel Berger, Justin Rose, Jason Day and MIke Lorenzo-Vera (-6): There was a moment Friday when a trainer plopped Koepka flat on his back in the middle of the rough and worked his left leg as Koepka, who has dealt with a lingering knee injury, showed some discomfort. But if it was bothering him too much, he didn’t play like it. Koepka fired a 2-under 68 entering the weekend and birdied his final hole to ensure he’ll do so with a pep in his step. He’s 36 holes away from potentially becoming the first to three-peat at the same major since 1956 and first to do so at the PGA Championship in nearly a century.

Fleetwood’s 6-under 64 tied for the best round of the week with Cameron Champ — both in Round 2 — as Fleetwood jumped 46 spots on the leaderboard. He drove it well Friday as opposed to Thursday — where he hit just 50% of his fairways off the tee. Fleetwood also cleaned up nicely on the greens. “I think I drove it really well,” said Fleetwood. “Put it in the fairway around here and it makes a massive, massive difference.” 

T8. Cameron Champ, Paul Casey and Brendon Todd (-5): Following a 1-over 71, Champ tied Fleetwood with the best round of the week Friday. And he did it by crushing the ball off the tees averaging 330 yards per drive — besting Bryson DeChambeau — while showing good control, too. He carded just one bogey on the day and took advantage of every par 5, after which he uttered the words of every golfer’s dream: “Usually, whenever I swing a little harder, it goes a little straighter.” 

T11. Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and three others (-4): DJ turned in a 4-under 31 on the back nine to polish off a Round 2 of 66, jumping more than 20 spots on the leaderboard into the top 10. He wasn’t quite as long off the tees as he was Thursday, but he commanded control of his irons and found something with the putter, draining several long ones to work his way into weekend contention. Schauffele was steady with two birdies and two bogeys for an even-par 70, but after a strong effort in Round 1, he missed an opportunity to push up the leaderboard.

T16. Tony Finau: (-3): For a second straight day, Finau boomed it off the tee but struggled to control it. And yet for a second straight day, he finds himself comfortably in the mix with an even-par round of 70 keeping him in the hunt. He was better around the greens Friday than he was Thursday and showed some promising improvement that could bode well for him going into moving day. 

T25. Bryson DeChambeau: (-2): DeChambeau summed up his round — and what he needs to improve on — like this: “I’ve got to do something special this weekend. I think I can. I think I’ve got the firepower to do that. I’ve just got to hit some fairways.” DeChambeau indeed has the firepower, but the control wasn’t there today as he found himself off the beaten path after errant tee shots, forcing him to scramble. Even-par golf isn’t bad in the windy conditions, but it’s not going to get him his first major. 

T31. Rory McIlroy (-1): Rory looked to be in decent shape and rounding into form after carding birdies on 7, 8, 9 and 10 — until No. 12 unraveled him. On the 503-yard par 4, he got to the green in four and subsequently three-putted, unraveling the progress on his round and dropping him to even-par on the day. He birdied 16 and finished the round at 1 under, but swallowing a triple-bogey was a momentum-stopper for him that may keep him from contention if he doesn’t have a huge moving day.

T45. Tiger Woods (E): Tiger makes the weekend cut — barely — after squeaking out a shaky 2-over par Friday round that had him hovering dangerously close to the cut line. Tiger’s putter saved him from disaster on Thursday but he lost strokes to the field with it in Round 2, narrowly missing several that could have reversed his fortunes and put him into the red.

Bryson Championship

PGA Championship, Bryson DeChambeau will bring golf’s distance debate to primetime – Yahoo Sports

The distance debate is golf’s version of a ‘this is going to ruin the game’ controversy.

Just like people say the surge in 3-pointers is taking the fun out of basketball and too many home runs supposedly destroying the integrity of baseball, the high-flying golf ball is seen as a problem by some.

said they’re considering new equipment rules that would dial back players’ ever-increasing range off the tee.” data-reactid=”22″ type=”text”>Traditionalists scoff at the idea that this game of skill and finesse could be dominated by sheer brute force. Golf architects say there’s not enough real estate to keep adding length to courses. Even two of golf’s top governing bodies, the USGA and the British R&A, said they’re considering new equipment rules that would dial back players’ ever-increasing range off the tee.

Lately, no one has more brute force than Bryson DeChambeau. The 26-year-old rising star brought the distance conversation back to the forefront when he returned from the PGA Tour’s three-month, COVID-19 stoppage with 20-plus pounds of added muscle and 20-plus yards of added power.

this week for the PGA Championship. Due to a pandemic re-shuffled scheduled, it’s the first major of 2020 and a chance for DeChambeau to put his muscle where his mouth is.” data-reactid=”24″ type=”text”>He brings his extreme swing to TPC Harding Park in San Francsico this week for the PGA Championship. Due to a pandemic re-shuffled scheduled, it’s the first major of 2020 and a chance for DeChambeau to put his muscle where his mouth is.

Happy Gilmore-esque drives, arguments with officials and a generally brash attitude.” data-reactid=”25″ type=”text”>So far, his increased power has translated to exceptional play. In six tournaments since golf returned, he’s rattled off four top-10 finishes, including a victory at the RBC Heritage in June. He’s vaulted to seventh in the world and made a name for himself with Happy Gilmore-esque drives, arguments with officials and a generally brash attitude.

Like him or not though, the results undeniable. And winning his first major while leading the PGA Tour in driving distance would only further ignite the argument over distance.

On paper, Harding Park doesn’t appear to be a layout fit for a power player with its listed yardage this week at 7,234 yards – not particularly long by PGA standards. But players collectively say it’ll play much longer with the coastal marine layer, cool and humid weather, and swirling winds from the adjacent Lake Merced. 

“I think this golf course suits the bomber if you can hit it straight,” DeChambeau told The Golf Channel on Tuesday.

DeChambeau isn’t fazed.

“As the rough stands right now, I think the risk is definitely worth the reward,” he said. “If you do hit it into the rough I still think you can get it to the front edge of the green.”

And it’s not as if DeChambeau is the only prominent player focused on the long ball these days.

Two-time defending PGA champion Brooks Koepka, consistently among the biggest hitters on tour, was asked Tuesday what one thing he’ll need to do to succeed this week.

“Drive the ball well,” Koepka said.

Tony Finau, another power player, said distance will be important this week and said he won’t be afraid to stay aggressive on the tee.

“If I am going to miss a fairway, I want to miss it as far up as I can to give myself a chance to still hit the green,” he said

2020 Travelers Championship odds: Surprising PGA picks, predictions by model that nailed six golf majors – CBS Sports

The withdrawals of Brooks Koepka and Webb Simpson from the 2020 Travelers Championship made headlines on Wednesday, just one day before the first 2020 Travelers Championship tee times on Thursday. Neither Koepka nor Simpson has tested positive for coronavirus, but they were among five players to withdraw from the event. Koepka’s caddie tested positive for COVID-19, as did Cameron Champ. Without Koepka, the fourth-ranked player in the world, and Simpson, who won last week at the RBC Heritage and is ranked No. 5, the 2020 Travelers Championship field could be even more wide open.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy is atop the 2020 Travelers Championship odds at 12-1 despite not finishing in the top 30 in the last two weeks. Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau are close behind McIlroy at 14-1. Before locking in any 2020 Travelers Championship picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has nailed two of the last three majors entering the weekend. It predicted Gary Woodland’s first career major championship at the U.S. Open even though he wasn’t the favorite entering the weekend. The result: Woodland held off a late charge from Brooks Koepka and won by three strokes. The model also called Koepka’s historic victory at the 2019 PGA Championship, predicting he’d hold his lead in the home stretch.

In all, their advanced computer model has nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. And already this season, the model called Justin Thomas (15-2) winning the CJ Cup, Rory McIlroy (11-2) taking down the WGC-HSBC Champions and Viktor Hovland (11-1) earning his first career PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open.

McClure also returned a whopping +788 during the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge, including nailing top-five bets on Xander Schauffele +650 and Collin Morikawa +900. Additionally, the model was extremely high on 30-1 long shot winner Webb Simpson at the RBC Heritage last week. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Simpson winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a whopping +3000 return. Anyone who has followed his golf picks has seen huge returns. 

Now that the Travelers Championship 2020 field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the full projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2020 Travelers Championship predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Travelers Championship 2020: Bryson DeChambeau, a five-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top Vegas favorites, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. He comes into this week with momentum after recording five straight finishes of ninth or better, but driving accuracy has been holding him back from better results.

He’s outside the top 50 on the PGA Tour in greens in regulation (69.02 percent), making it challenging for him to string together four strong rounds. He’s been plagued by poor Saturday play as well. He’s shot 70 or higher on Saturday in all but two events this year, including a disastrous Saturday 76 at the Safeway Open. The model has factored that in and is fading him this week, making him one of 2020 Travelers Championship favorites to avoid in this loaded field. 

Another surprise: Sungjae Im, a massive 35-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 22-year-old Korean superstar has been playing well throughout the 2019-20 PGA schedule, including a standout performance in a losing effort at the Presidents Cup. 

The 20th-ranked player in the world, Im captured his first PGA Tour victory just before the coronavirus outbreak by winning the Honda Classic. Im followed that with a third-place finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a 10th at the Charles Schwab Challenge three weeks ago. Those efforts have vaulted him over $4 million in earnings already and he’s up to third in the FedEx Cup standings. Im fared well in his maiden performance at TPC River Highlands, placing 21st last season. With plenty of momentum, Im has all the skills needed to climb the 2020 Travelers Championship leaderboard starting Thursday.

How to make 2020 Travelers Championship picks

Also, the model says four other golfers with odds of 25-1 or longer will make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
