Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Collin Morikawa wins the PGA Championship

At one point on the back-nine on Sunday, there were seven golfers tied for the lead at 10-under. You read that correctly. Seven. It was clear that someone was going to need to do something special to separate himself from the pack. Collin Morikawa ($8,600; 122.5 DKFP) was that man. After mishitting his second shot on the 14th hole, the 23-year-old chipped in from off the green to take a one-stroke lead. Then, on the drivable 16th, Morikawa put his tee shot just seven feet from the cup. He’d make eagle minutes later, essentially cementing the victory. It’s the young phenom’s first career win at a major tournament. — Garion Thorne


Paul Casey finishes second at the PGA Championship

To suggest that Casey ($7,500; 99.5 DKFP) has been a bit of a headache for DFS owners as of late would be a massive understatement. The 43-year-old missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament after firing a 77 on Day 2. Casey followed that up by again missing the cut at the 3M Open, despite the fact that he was one of the chalkiest plays on that slate. On a positive note, Casey played four rounds at the FedEx St. Jude Invitational, but that was only due to the fact it was a non-cut event. Needless to say, this weekend’s second place finish is a breath of fresh air. Casey was 4-under on Sunday to finish two strokes back of Collin Morikawa ($8,600; 122.5 DKFP). It’s easily his best performance since the PGA Tour restart. — Garion Thorne


Tiger Woods finishes under par at the PGA Championship

Woods was out of contention at the first major championship of the year, but he finished strong anyway firing three birdies in his first seven holes and posting his best round of the week at 67 (-3). He finished at -1 for the week but said he was encouraged by how well his body did in the cooler temperatures. He did not specifically say when he’ll play his next event but did say he looks forward to “a week off and getting back at it” which could point to his next tournament as The Northern Trust at TPC Boston in two weeks. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Dustin Johnson moves into lead at PGA Championship

Dustin Johnson ($9,000) shot a five-under-par 65 on Saturday, which moved him into first place at the PGA Championship. This was Johnson’s third consecutive round in the 60’s after recording a 69 on Thursday and a 67 on Friday. He’s now the odds-on favorite to win the year’s first major at +250, which would give him two major victories for his career. Johnson already secured a victory this year at the Traveler’s Championship, which extended his streak to 13 consecutive seasons with a victory. Only Jack Nicklaus (17), Arnold Palmer (17), and Tiger Woods (14) have achieved longer streaks to start their careers. — Matt LaMarca


Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa go low on moving day

Scheffler ($7,300) and Morikawa ($8,600) both shot five-under-par on Saturday, which puts them squarely in contention at the PGA Championship. Scheffler entered Saturday five shots back of second-round leader Hao-Tong Li ($6,500) but is now tied for second with Cameron Champ ($7,000). Both players are at eight-under-par for the tournament, which puts them just one shot back of leader Dustin Johnson ($9,000). Morikawa is tied with Brooks Koepka ($11,100) and Paul Casey ($7,500) at seven-under-par, but Morikawa will have the benefit of playing in the second-to-last group on Sunday. Johnson is the odds on favorite to win at +250 on DraftKings Sportsbook, while Brooks Koepka is just slightly behind at +450. — Matt LaMarca


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Hao-Tong Li sits atop the leaderboard of the PGA Championship

This is not a name anybody expected to be be in first on Friday night. After shooting a five-under par 65, Li ($6,500; 72.5 DKFP) is sitting pretty at the PGA Championship. On Friday, he posted a clean round without a bogey which included a 31 on the front nine. This puts Li in position to potentially win his first major this weekend. Even so, DK Sportsbook sees him as a bit of a long shot and he’s +1400 to win the tournament. — Greg Ehrenberg


Tommy Fleetwood goes low on Friday

Fleetwood ($7,700) shot a six-under-par 64 on Friday, vaulting him all the way to T2 at the PGA Championship. Fleetwood had a lengthy layoff from competitive golf and opened with an even-par 70 on Thursday but he had everything working on Friday. He is currently listed at +900 on DK Sportsbook to win his first major, which ties him with Jason Day ($8,400) and Daniel Berger ($8,800) for the second-shortest odds in the field. Brooks Koepka ($11,100) is the betting favorite at +400, while current leader Hao-Tong Li ($6,500) is priced at +1400. — Matt LaMarca
