"I want a fist fight between the three of them": Could this be the best US PGA ever?

This week, the GolfMagic team looked ahead to the US PGA and discussed the potential for an ultimate showdown between Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka.

Who is going to win the US PGA Championship?

Well, if you ask the team at GolfMagic, there are three favourites this week. 

As the world's best head to Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, for the year's second major championship, three players are in the form of their lives, looking to add to their respective major tallies.

Rory McIlroy has hit his best form of the year at just the right time. He's primed to go all the way this week, having won back-to-back titles on the PGA Tour at the Wells Fargo and Zurich Classic

Looking to rain on McIlroy's parade, Scottie Scheffler will also be looking to continue his winning streak and make it five from six on the premier North American circuit. 

Having taken a short break from the game to witness the birth of his first child, Scheffler will be a force to be reckoned with, especially with that new fatherly perspective we often hear so much about. 


Undoubtedly the best player of the year so far, Scheffler is still the favourite to lift the Wanamaker trophy, and it will undoubtedly take some special golf to topple him this week.

With that in mind, there's one man who loves major championship golf more than anyone: Brooks Koepka

The returning champion tends to turn into a different beast when major weeks come around, so you can guarantee his name will be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. 

So, what did the GolfMagic team have to say about the week's action?

Well, equipment editor Alex Lodge is hoping we don't see one thing this week, and that's another runaway victory for Scheffler.

He said:

"In the back of my mind, I'm thinking, please don't let this be a Scottie blowout again. We've got Brooks, we've got prime Rory back. Scottie's baby has just been born; he's got a fresh perspective.

"Is it going to be boom 28-under for Scheffler, or has he been changing nappies, can't sleep, the beard's got a bit too long, and he shots two-over?"

"I think having had a few days out to deal with the most important time of his life so far, he's going to be coming in with that perspective, and everyone is going to be in trouble." 

During the latest episode of the podcast's latest pod, the gang also discussed the most hot-headed golfers on Tour, how fatherhood will affect Scottie Scheffler and the best and worst shots we've ever hit.
