Whistling Straits again this year looks to be the perefectly rounded Major venue but is it favouring the big hitters? Highlights from round one suggest it might.

A look at the odds of some selected big batters after 18 holes shows plenty of value for those who like a lash.

Dustin Johnson 4/1
Jason Day 6/1
Rory McIlroy 9/1
JB Holmes 33/1
Brooks Koepka 100/1

Watch out for the progress of JB and Brooks especially today as an indicator.  Holmes is not ordinarily the type to find form then fade; when he contends in a tournament it is generally from the start.

And my own pre tournament pick Brooks Koepka is now 100/1. Yes he is one over par but I saw plenty in his five birdie run yesterday to give me reason for optimism.
