This year has been totally bonkers, and nothing typifies that more than the PGA Championship being the first major played this season. Obviously, the event will be without fans, however, there will still be plenty of interest worldwide, and there’s already been plenty of betting interest.
Since the golf season re-started, bettors have been checking the PGA Championship odds market on a regular basis as the world’s best have been trying to regain their touch on the PGA Tour.
Below we’ve taken a look at the players who have seen the most wagers since the PGA Tour re-started. At the bottom of the page you’ll see the latest PGA Championship odds.
Top Ten Most Back Golfers for the PGA Championship
1. Bryson Dechambeau – 17.4% of bets
Bryson Dechambeau being one of the most backed players for the PGA Championship hardly comes as a surprise given the form he’s been in since the re-start. Bryson has been the talk of the down with his big-hitting and occasional tantrum. However, that shouldn’t distract you from the fact he’s had four top ten finishes in his last five competitions, which includes winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Dechambeau’s form has seen his PGA Championship odds cut from +4000 in January to being second-favorite.
Bryson Dechambeau PGA Championship best odds: +1100
Bryson Dechambeau PGA Championship worst odds: +800
2. Rory McIlroy – 5.9% of bets
Despite Rory McIlroy being in contention for the majority of competitions since the re-start, I’m sure he’ll be frustrated not to record a top ten finish. Rory’s tended to struggle on the final day, he’s only hit under 70 once on day four in the last four events.
Rory McIlroy is still the favourite to win the PGA Championship, and has been a popular pick with bettors.
Rory McIlroy PGA Championship best odds: +1000
Rory McIlroy PGA Championship worst odds: +700
3. Jon Rahm – 4.6% of bets
The top three in the betting are also the top three in terms of odds. Jon Rahm has been the third most backed player in the field, which unsurprising given his dominance at The Memorial Tournament.
Jon Rahm PGA Championship best odds: +1300
Jon Rahm PGA Championship worst odds: +1000
4. Danny Willett – 4.5% of bets
This one is surprising. We were expecting to see someone like Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods or Brooks Koepka as the 4th most backed player for the PGA Championship. However, Danny Willett beats all of them. Bettors must have been impressed with the 4th place finish at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, as the Englishman has shown little else since the PGA Tour returned.
Danny Willett PGA Championship best odds: +12500
Danny Willett PGA Championship worst odds: +8000
5. Abraham Ancer - 4.3% of bets
Abraham Ancer is becoming one of the most consistent golfers on the PGA Tour. The Mexican has impressed since the re-start, picking up three top 15 finishes which includes a 2nd at the RBC Heritage.
Abraham Ancer PGA Championship best odds: +7000
Abraham Ancer PGA Championship worst odds: +6600
6. Brooks Koepka – 4% of bets
Even though Brooks hasn’t been playing too well since the re-start, we all know he’s only bothered when it’s a Major. Throw form out of the window with Brooks Kopeka.
Brooks Koepka PGA Championship best odds: +1600
Brooks Koepka PGA Championship worst odds: +1400
