PGA Championship Odds: Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy and Best Value Picks

The 2023 PGA Championship, the second of four majors to be played this season, takes place from May 18 to 21 at Oak Hill East Course in Rochester, New York. Justin Thomas, who won last year’s tournament in a thrilling playoff against Will Zalatoris, has the fourth-shortest odds to win this year’s event at +1825.

The PGA Championship, like the Masters Tournament, will also feature LIV Golf players, making for a can’t-miss weekend of competitive golf with plenty of storylines to follow. Let’s take a look at the early PGA Championship odds to win the 2023 PGA Championship.

Betting Favorite – Jon Rahm (+800)

Scottie Scheffler may be able to make a case, but there’s nobody playing better than Jon Rahm right now. Rahm was dominant at Augusta National, winning the Masters Tournament for the first time, and still showed up at Harbour Town for the RBC Heritage last weekend.

After an unimpressive first round, as was to be expected, he played great golf the rest of the way, finishing T15 at 11-under.

Rahm is now a Masters and U.S. Open champion and needs just a PGA Championship and Open Championship to complete the career Grand Slam. His best result at the PGA Championship was a T4 in 2018.

Who to Fade – Rory McIlroy (+1025)

There’s no better story than Rory McIlroy winning the PGA Championship. He was the PGA Tour’s most vocal supporter a year ago when players began defecting to LIV and has mostly played well since.

However, McIlroy has struggled as of late, and it’s perhaps looking as though he’s being passed by younger stars like Rahm, Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, etc.

McIlroy missed the cut at the Masters and THE PLAYERS Championship. The 33-year-old was the only player to withdraw from the RBC Heritage, which was surprising considering he had an added two days of rest than many other players who committed.

McIlroy finished T8 at Oak Hill in the 2013 PGA Championship.

Best Value Picks – Xander Schauffele (+2200) and Keegan Bradley (+7000)

Xander Schauffele, at +2200, is great value to win the 2023 PGA Championship. The Olympic gold medalist is seemingly in every tournament in which he participates but has yet to win a major championship.

He’s one of the players on Tour who feels like they’re ready to break through, and evidence suggests that might be the case – Schauffele finished fourth at the RBC Heritage and T10 at the Masters Tournament.

Looking further down the board, there’s decent value in Keegan Bradley at +7000. The 36-year-old is having one of the best years of his career and is fourth in the FedEx Cup Standings. He finished T23 at the Masters, won the ZOZO Championship, and finished second at the Farmers Insurance Open.
