Donald has just one top-20 finish (T8 in 2011) in his last six appearances at the PGA Championship. He will be a very risky pick this week in Louisville.

After withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this weekend, it is highly unlikely Woods will play in the PGA Championship. Even if he does suit up, though, don’t expect much of a fantasy performance from TW.

Westwood is coming off a T19 at the Bridgestone Invitational, but it was the first time he made the cut in four tournaments. However, fantasy fans shouldn't overlook the fact that he has two top-eight finishes in the last five years at the PGA Championship.

Mickelson has finished inside the top-25 in five consecutive worldwide tournaments. He even shot a season-best 62 in the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational last weekend en route to a T15. Lefty won’t be a threat to win it this week, but he should be a safe bet to crack the top-15.
