After a long wait year, the 2022 PGA Championship is back on the road. Xander Schauffele is one of the most prominent players on tour with a huge opportunity to win the championship. But he will have to beat a lot of other celebrities to become the champion of the second major tournament.

The second major PGA Tour is fully prepared to go underway. The tour is set to play in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at Southern Hills Country Club. This will be the 104th edition of the tournament. It has brought all the world-class golfers under the same roof. All the top-ranked players will compete to earn the most prestigious PGA Tour of the year.

Last year Xander Schauffele’s performance was terrific in the PGA Championship and was mind-blowing. That time the game took place at the Kiawah Island. Schauffele was good as hell at that tournament. He was shooting 73-77 to miss the cut. His performance at the last few PGA tournaments has been excellent too. He put behind the best top 20 players in his previous two appearances in the PGA event. Schauffele finished the tour tied for 10th at TPC Harding Park in 2020 and 16th at Bethpage Black in 2019.

This year Schauffele’s biggest rival in the PGA Championship won’t attend the tournament. Yes, we are talking about the defending champion of the tournament Phil Mickelson. Last year he made a record by winning the Kiawah Island PGA Championship. He is the oldest person to win a PGA major tournament. But Schauffele will have to pass Tiger Woods and many others to win the game.

Xander Schauffele is a top favorite player on tour. And the course field is suitable for him too. He played perfectly on the driving course and did very well in the past few driving courses. In the driving distance, he ranked 32nd, and in the total driving, his rank is fourth.

The game looks pretty well-tailored on the Southern Hills for Schauffele. So, investing in Schauffele won’t be a loss project. But before doing so, you must build a good idea about others’ performance.

Schauffele to odds to win the tour are +2800, and Viktor Hovland is ahead of Schauffele, whose odd to win the tour is +2500

Venue conditions and how they will affect players:

The temperature of the venue is quite steamy. But the weather is good—nothing to worry about heavy rain that may destroy the event. The weather-predicting sector says the highest temperature in the area could reach 89 degrees. But it won’t probably raise more than 82 degrees in three days.

There is the possibility of heavy thunderstorms on Sunday, but the weather will be hot and will make the course firm. And the good news for all the players and fans is that the weather will be breezy on the tournament days, Thursday and Friday. So the players will get a chance to score a lot.
