I think we are all expecting too much from Rory this week. 3 wins in a row is a bit excessive. I think he will finish top 10 however. PGA winners generally play well at the Bridgestone. This year is the year for repeat major winners 2/3. Also I like my PGA picks to be generally ones who have played well as of late or at least this season. Tiger has no chance. Rory too much to ask for. The course is a big one and weather seems to be suspect. To me that leaves a very small group of players IMO to pick from to win this.
What is the basis of your argument here? Do you think it's not possible for Rory or anyone to win 3 in a row? Do you think the tougher field will make it unlikely?
Statistically each event is independent of each other and doesn't have any influence on the outcome of the previous ones unless you are considering trends. In the case of trends I would think they favor Rory given he finished strong this past weekend.
