Vijay Singh Withdraws from PGA Championship
We have another major on deck with the PGA TOUR heading to Kiawah Island Golf Resort for the PGA Championship. There has been one early withdrawal after Vijay Singh withdrew Monday morning with a back injury.
Singh wasn’t ever going to be a betting or DFS target, but his WD does let bomb and gouger Wyndham Clark into the field.

As of Monday morning, Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win this week on FanDuel Sportsbook as he is listed at +1100.
Rory enters this week off a win at the Wells Fargo Championship. But, by his standards — he was off to a slow start this year with his iron play, ranking just 30th in Strokes Gained: Approach over his last 50 rounds, relative to the field. However, he was still able to be solid in other aspects of his game, given he ranks eighth in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green in the same time frame.
Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth are next on the odds board with odds of +1400 to win.
