We get our second Major this week in One And Done pools, with the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

Scottie Scheffler is back after taking last week off for the birth of his first child, while Rory McIlroy won last week’s event to come in on a roll as well.

All the biggest names and top players are here, and it makes for a key event in your One And Done pools. It also unofficially marks the start of the stretch run to the money. Depending on when your pool began, you are now past the half way point or likely hitting it. There are 13 total tournaments remaining in most pools (that end at the BMW Championship).

Let’s go through what to think about in making your One And Done picks for the PGA Championship.

PGA Championship One And Done Pick Strategy: Purse Info

The PGA Championship is the second Major of the year. Last year’s purse was a total purse of $17.5 million and $3.15 million going to first place. We will update when we have official purse info but the Majors purses typically aren’t announced in advance, and so it is likely at or above those amounts for this year.

If you want to see where this tournament’s purse ranks in your specific One And Done pool, you can set up your pool entry in our Golf One And Done Picks product.

  • Brooks Koepka, the defending champion, also won his last LIV event two weeks ago.
  • Scottie Scheffler, the betting favorite, took off from last week’s event for the birth of his first child, but has won the last four big-money event starts he has made (RBC Heritage, The Masters, The Player’s Championship, and the Arnold Palmer).
