Odds To Win The 2017 PGA Championship

Odds To Win The 2017 PGA ChampionshipOdds To Win The 2017 PGA Championship As Of July 26.

Following his win at the Open Championship, it is no surprise that Jordan Spieth is atop the leaderboard of the odds to win the PGA Championship at 7/1. With three legs of the career slam under his belt, Spieth will be gunning for a win at the PGA. With it, he will join the list of the only five men who have won the career grand slam: Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen.

Rory McIlroy is also at 7/1. But McIlroy, for all his immense talent, has not been in Major Championship form of late. However, he does have two wins at Quail Hollow, the site of this year’s PGA Championship. In 2015, his aggregate score of 21-under 267, beat the course record by five strokes.

World Number One Dustin Johnson is in at 9/1.  He’s number two in the FedEx Cup rankings, but not in the top ten in scoring average.

Of the top three, I like McIlroy.

The next group comprises Jason Day at 16/1, and Hideki Matsuyama and John Rahm at 18/1. Lately, Day seems to me like a guy who lately can’t catch a break. Rahm has got to reign in his emotions to win a Major. Matsuyama, on the other hand, is an intriguing option. He’s third in the FedEx Cup and fifth in scoring average. Everyone seems to agree that he will be the first Japanese player to win a men’s Major. The PGA Championship seems to me to be a good place for that win.

Rounding out the top ten are Rickie Fowler at 20/1 and Henrik Stenson at 22/1.  Fowler won at Quail Hollow in 2012, and currently sits just behind Jordan Spieth in scoring average. Stenson, on the other hand, has not had a lot of luck on the PGA TOUR this year. His ten starts resulted in four missed cuts and a withdrawal.
