Hello, welcome to The Waggle.
00:02
It's whistling my straits.
00:04
US PGA, last major of the year.
00:07
Let's take a little lookie, Waggle style.
00:10
(upbeat pop music)
00:15
So, the final major of 2015, the US PGA.
00:19
Yes, you heard me.
00:20
We have a PGA.
00:22
I know you Americans like to call it the PGA,
00:24
but us, here, in the UK, we have a PGA as well.
00:28
That's our PGA.
00:29
That's why I'm calling it the US PGA, Whistling Straits.
00:32
This place looks unbelievable.
00:34
Bunkers everywhere, nearly 1000 bunkers, wastelands.
00:38
Got to be careful where you're grounding your club.
00:41
Dustin!
00:42
But, but, but, but.
00:43
Not allowed to ground your club in so many places,
00:45
which has tripped people up in the past.
00:47
So, we got Dustin Johnson as one of my top picks
00:50
for 2015 US PGA, but he's gonna need a little bit of help
00:54
with this little book.
00:55
He's gonna have to really be concentrating
00:58
on where that club is, what it's touching,
01:00
Ah, but, but, but, but.
01:01
But definitely has all the game to win his first major.
01:04
Rory McElroy back.
01:06
Come on Rory.
01:07
So, Rory McElroy, he's back after his injury,
01:10
his little football injury.
01:11
We don't know with Rory, because he's not played for a bit,
01:15
if he's gonna make the cut,
01:17
miss the cut, or win the whole damn thing,
01:20
and that's the beauty of watching Rory McElroy.
01:22
He's so exciting to watch,
01:23
definitely one to keep your eye on.
01:25
If he can just keep his mind of those keepie-ups.
01:28
On the tee, from Northern Ireland,
01:32
Rory McElroy. (crowd cheering)
01:34
Maybe we'll see Rory defend his US PGA Championship
01:37
this year, definitely something I would love to see.
01:40
So, there's no major in 2015 where you can't think
01:43
or talk about Jordan Spieth.
01:45
In fact, there's no tournament, really at the moment,
01:47
where if Jordan Spieth is playing,
01:49
you can't consider him as a possible winner.
01:52
That guy has all the game, is consistent as they come.
01:56
Not the longest of hitters.
01:57
Holes more putts than many.
01:58
Hits it straight.
01:59
He's just an all-around, fantastic player.
02:01
Got to keep Jordan Spieth in your sights
02:04
during the US PGA.
02:05
European interests.
02:06
What about Martin Kaymer?
02:08
Won there before.
02:09
He could do it.
02:10
Not sure he can do it again,
02:11
but I'd love to see him do it again,
02:13
and maybe a bit of a wild card,
02:14
but having a fantastic season, Danny Willett.
02:18
Danny says what he likes,
02:20
and likes what he blooming well says, Willett.
02:22
He's a Yorkshireman.
02:23
He's blunt talking.
02:24
He's got a fantastic game, having a great year.
02:27
Maybe a wild card for anyone
02:30
who wants those long odds winner.
02:32
Danny Willett, check him out.
02:33
Watch the videos, always watch videos.
02:37
Follow me wherever I go.
02:39

02:54
