Highest world ranking: 14

Francesco Molinari wins BMW PGA Championship

Molinari is having the best season of his career with wins at the BMW PGA Championship and Quicken Loans National, where he romped home by eight strokes. Frankie has played on a winning Ryder Cup side in 2010, won the WGC-HSBC Champions in 2010 and has picked up five European Tour titles in total.

Alex Noren

Noren is somewhat of a late bloomer but has been relentless in the last four years, winning seven times since 2015.

Tommy Fleetwood

Worldwide wins: 7
Highest world ranking: 10

Tommy Fleetwood will start as favourite

The Englishman has become one of the world’s best players over the last couple of years thanks to some imperious ball striking. Fleetwood looks capable of winning a major, showing that at Shinnecock Hills were he shot a 63 on Sunday to finish 2nd. He won the Race to Dubai in 2017 to become Europe’s #1 and will make his Ryder Cup debut this year.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar What’s In The Bag

Kuch is a top-10 machine and has amassed over $43m on the PGA Tour, which only 12 men have bettered. He came so close at Royal Birkale last year where he finished 2nd to Jordan Spieth and most notably won the Players Championship in 2012, one of his seven PGA Tour victories.

Paul Casey

Worldwide wins: 18
Highest world ranking: 3

Casey has been one of the best English golfers of the last 15-20 years, winning 13 times on the European Tour and twice on the PGA Tour, where he has played exclusively in recent times until this year due to his desire to play in the Ryder Cup again. He has played on three Ryder Cup sides, winning in 2004 and 2006, yet incredibly hasn’t represented Europe since 2008 – that may well change this September. In total Casey has nine top-10s in majors.

Branden Grace

Worldwide wins: 12
Highest world ranking: 10

The South African is one of his country’s finest players currently, winning eight times on the European Tour and once on the PGA Tour.

In 2017 he became the first male golfer to shoot 62 in a major at The Open.
