PGA Championship

4th Round Updated Futures To win
Keegan Bradley +559
Brendan Steele +457
Jason Dufner +470

4th Round Matchups (1 unit ea)
Ben Crane EV vs. Spencer Levin
Lee Westwood -140 vs. Hunter Mahan
Ryan Palmer +140 vs. Phil Mickelson

*Note the futures are hedges....if one of these 3 don't win then I like my chances with Stricker, Toms, Westwood, or Watney....but placing these at least means I won't lose money on futures this week.
