Unlike the Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship is played at different locations each season. One year we could be on a modern links course, another on a coastal Carolina or Northern California track. The second major of the season can provide us with exciting finishes, like when 50-year-old (at the time) Phil Mickelson won last year at Kiawah Island or when Y.E Yang held off Tiger Woods in 2009; it's like no other tournament on the PGA TOUR. One unique characteristic of the PGA Championship is the inclusion of 20 club professionals getting a chance to play in a major on the PGA TOUR.
You might be wondering how the PGA Championship odds work? Many factors go into how the odds work, but the simplest explanation is how good the golfers are currently playing and how they play at the PGA Championship every year. When considering golfers to bet on, look at golfers who are great off the tee. Past winners like Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Jimmy Walker, and Justin Thomas are long hitters. We've also seen many first-time major winners breakthrough here, so adding golfers on the precipice of winning a major is also a prudent strategy.
The 104th PGA Championship will take place from May 19-22 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The 2007 PGA Championship was also at Southern Hills CC, with Tiger Woods winning his 13th major. Since 2019, the PGA Championship has taken place in May, instead of its former spot as the fourth and final major played in August.
The favorites are Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Collin Morikawa, Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith, and Patrick Cantlay.
The PGA Championship odds are available all season, and you can place futures up until tee-off in mid-May 2022.
