Following on from an outstanding edition of The Masters, the world’s best golfers will descend on the Bethpage Black Course at Long Island, New York for the year’s second major – the 2019 PGA Championship.
The early withdrawal of world number five Justin Thomas has left Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka tied as $12 top elects in PGA Championship betting and as always, both have legitimate claims on winning the tournament.
Following an eleven-year drought, Tiger Woods claimed a memorable victory at Augusta, and he remains prominent in an open 2019 PGA Championship betting market; tied on the second line with Rory McIlroy at $13.
You can find out 2019 PGA Championship tips, including our best roughie below.
Tiger Woods ($13)
Often appearing in the picks of any fleeting golf fan at any given major, it’s pretty hard to argue with the form that has been mustered by Tiger Woods this season and he is a real threat of securing his sixteenth major title at the 2019 PGA Championship.
Interestingly, the forty-three-year-old has not played in a PGA Tour event since capturing his fifth green jacket last month, but he has played a total of eight tournaments this season and has not finished worse than T30.
Jon Rahm ($21)
Jon Rahm has been one of, if not the world’s most consistent performers so far this season and he looks a touch of overs in 2019 PGA Championship betting at $21.
The Spaniard has recorded eight top-ten finishes already this season, including a credible ninth at The Masters and he was last seen winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans; his second win of the season.
Rahm is an extremely diverse and adaptable player and that ability is sure to come in handy on the challenging Bethpage Black Course. There is no doubt that he is the value in the field at his current quote.
Jason Day ($23)
Jason Day is the shortest-priced Australian in PGA Championship betting and is worth consideration at $23.
Having famously won his first and only major at the 2015 edition of this tournament, Day has returned several pleasing efforts and results this season, but it has certainly been a case of ‘rocks or diamonds’ for the thirty-one-year-old.
He followed up an impressive T5 at The Masters with a lacklustre effort, missing the cut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, but was last seen finishing in a tie for 24th at the Wells Fargo Championship following a pleasing final round.
Back Jon Rahm to Win @ $21
Best Roughie – Phil Mickelson ($81)
It’s hard to believe that a player of Phil Mickelson’s calibre could be rated an $81 shot, but that’s what we’re faced with and I am more than happy to have a small speculative bet at that price.
Having beaten Tiger in their famed head-to-head competition in Vegas, Mickelson has since produced a number of quality efforts, including a T2 at the Desert Classic and a win at Pebble Beach. He did miss the cut at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship, but finished in a tie for eighteenth at The Masters prior to that.
He’s frequently kept his best golf for tournaments like this one, with challenging conditions and that appear to be wide open from a betting perspective.
Back Phil Mickelson to Finish Top 10 @ $7
