PGA Championship Top Favorites

Scottie Scheffler (+875)
Scheffler has been a consistent figure atop the leaderboard for two years in a row now. The 2022 Masters champion and former world No. 1 would like to add another major title to his resume, along with eventually taking back over the top spot in the world. Scheffler finished T4 and T8 here in his first two attempts before missing the cut last season.

Jon Rahm (+875)
Currently world No. 1, Rahm has won four times already this season, highlighted by his second major victory and first taste of the Green Jacket at Augusta. A win would give the 28-year-old his third leg in the career grand slam and become the first golfer since Brooks Koepka in 2018 to win multiple majors in the same year.

Rory McIlroy (+2500)
Two-time PGA Championship winner and top-ranked golfer in the world is always going to find himself as a betting favorite heading into the tournament. McIlroy hasn’t played his best golf recently, but the 34-year-old still has what it takes to win another major title. McIlroy finished T8 at Oak Hill in 2013 when the PGA Championship made its last stop at the famed track.


PGA Championship Surprise Picks

Cameron Young (+3700)
The 26-year-old has already made noise in major tournaments and is right on the cusp of breaking through with his first major title. Young’s lone appearance in the PGA Championship was last season when he finished T3. The Wake Forest alum has four top-10 finishes this year, highlighted by a runner-up finish at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Max Homa (+5000)
Homa has exploded onto the golf scene over the last three years, picking up five victories during that span. The Cal Bear has a pair of wins this year (Fortinet Championship and Farmers Insurance Open) to add to his total. The 32-year-old is coming off a T8 at the Wells Fargo Championship, making him a surprise pick by many this week.

Rickie Fowler (+6000)
Fowler hasn’t made a lot of noise over the recent years, and the 34-year-old was not invited to the 2023 Masters. With zero major wins on his resume, Fowler could break the curse this week at Oak Hill. Fowler has missed the cut just two times over the 13 times he has teed it up in the event and finished in the top 10 or better three times.
