Which golfer at +1600 or less has the best shots to win the PGA Championship?
We wish we could say Tiger. We must be honest with ourselves, though. Tiger shot a +6 at Muirfield Village GC at the Memorial. Muirfield Village is a golf course that El Tigre has dominated in the past.
It’s asking too much for Tiger to rock it next week. Who, then, deserves a look? First, don’t back Rory McIlroy. Players offering less than +1000 odds almost never win.
Instead, consider Jon Rahm at +1600. Rahm won the Memorial after shooting a -9. What’s interesting is that Rahm shot under 70 for the first three rounds. He shot a 75 Round 4 but was so far ahead of everyone else that he still took home the title.
Rahm’s best finish in a major is 3rd at the 2019 U.S. Open. Eventually, he’s going to take home a major championship trophy. He’s in good form and the odds are fair.
What golfer offering +2200 to +3500 can take the PGA Championship?
Since the PGA returned to play in mid-June, Xander Schauffele has yet to win. But, he’s played as well as one could expect after a 3-month layoff. Not only that, but Schauffele’s form implies a peak performance next week.
Xander finished third at the Charles Schwab Open. As a favorite at the RBC Heritage, he took a backward step, finishing 64th.
But he rebounded with a 20th place finish at the Travelers Championship. Since the Travelers, Schauffele finished 14th at the Workday Charity Open and 13th at the Memorial Tournament. We must assume he tried some shots in both the Workday and the Memorial.
Golfers with Xander’s ability often use tournaments between majors to try different shots. If Xander did that, we must expect he’ll be ready to fire at the PGA Championship.
Are there any golfers in the +5000 to +6600 who can win the PGA Title?
At +5000, Gary Woodland offers overlay odds. Woodland finished 5th at the Workday Charity Open. The 22nd place finish at the Memorial wasn’t bad at all.
More importantly? Woodland steps up in major tournaments. He won the U.S. Open last year. Sure, he could miss the cut. But if he doesn’t, he could pull off another major victory at huge odds.
Give Woodland a look if you want to back a big time underdog.
