FLG outsider picks for the 2023 US PGA Championship

We're looking beyond the Jon Rahm's, Rory McIlroy's and Brooks Koepka's of the game and hunting out that golfer heading into the week somewhat under the radar.


Here are five sleeper picks to keep your eye on:


Talor Gooch: He's won twice on the LIV Tour this year claiming back-to-back titles in Adelaide and Singapore. Down Under he posted consecutive rounds of 10-under, this boy can play!


Nicolai & Rasmus Hojgaard: The Danish superstar twins are only 22-years-old but have six professional wins between them already. Yet to make their appearance felt on the big stage, could this be a week to remember for one of them? Phil Mickelson: Although he's yet to secure a T10 on the LIV Tour this year, did you see him at the Masters? Final round 65 (-7) to finish T2 and claim the lowest round ever for an over 50-year-old at the tournament. He's still got it people! Adam Scott: He hasn't won on the PGA Tour in a few years now, however, his 2023 season is trending in the right direction. He's entering this week coming off the back of two top-10 finishes, including a T5 at the Wells Fargo. He's already got a green jacket, could he add a Wanamaker to that collection? Min Woo Lee: We've said it before and we'll say it again, Min Woo is a major winner in the making. He's not on the best run of form as of late but as he showed at Sawgrass earlier in the year, he's not afraid to go low.
