Field, course preview, key stats, betting odds, and of course, their best bets for the week. Enjoy!

Harry Higgs joined the T9 boys to discuss the event, the 2021 PGA Championship, getting into the Masters, playing Augusta with his family, and tons more. Enjoy.
After what seems like months, the PGA Tour is back and has made its way to Hawaii for the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua. 38 of the 39 winners from last season are in the field, the only one not making the trip being Rory McIlroy.

Will he play on Tour again? Will he win again? The boys discuss. Charlie Woods was electric, and his swing is incredible. The Daly's took the title, and JD2 is a STUD. Nelly Korda might have the best swing in golf. And much, much more - Enjoy!
He's baaaaaack. Tiger Woods is playing golf on TV this weekend at the PNC Championship in Orlando, Florida with his son, Charlie. Just 10 months after his accident, Woods is returning to golf. The rest of the field is pretty damn good, too - Justin Thomas, Nelly Korda, and Bubba Watson just to name a few. Also, Andy picked the winner of the QBE Shootout. You're welcome. We cover a bunch more, enjoy.
Tiger Woods wouldn't stop pounding balls on the range at the Hero World Challenge. We loved every second of it. Viktor Hovland took home the trophy thanks to a collapse from Collin Morikawa.
