PGA Championship favorites

The Masters is in the rearview after OWGR World No. 1-ranked Scottie Scheffler took home his first Green Jacket. Just two months ago, Scheffler was nowhere near the top of the odds board but has jumped all the way up to the betting favorite at +1,200. Former No. 1 Jon Rahm was in lockstep with Scheffler, but is now available at slightly longer odds (+1,300).

Since Augusta, Jordan Spieth has claimed victory at the RBC Heritage and the high-powered Xander Schauffele-Patrick Cantlay pairing dominated the Zurich Classic, while Rahm got his first win of the year at the Mexico Open. Now, the odds for Southern Hills Country Club have settled in.

Scottie Scheffler (+1,200)

What a ride it's been for Scheffler. The 25-year-old opened the year having never won on Tour, but went on a run of four wins in six starts, culminating with his dominant victory at the Masters. He tops the PGA Tour money list by a considerable margin and has taken over the No. 1 spot on the OWGR list.

If Scheffler wins in Tulsa, he'll be the first golfer to claim victory at the Masters and PGA Championship in the same year since Jack Nicklaus did it in 1975. He's already come close with T4 and T8 finishes in his first two cracks at the storied tournament.

After a week off at the RBC Heritage and a ho-hum T18 finish alongside Ryan Palmer at the Zurich Classic, Scheffler should be rounding back into form just in time for Southern Hills. 

Jon Rahm (+1,400)

Rahm has certainly lost some of last year's steam in 2022, and as a result, is no longer the betting favorite for the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. 

After entering Augusta National as the solo favorite, he finished just T27 after a final-round 69. Rahm finally got the monkey off his back, however, when he won the Mexico Open.

Despite losing his status as the OWGR No. 1-ranked golfer, he has a great history at the PGA Championship and will be among the biggest threats to win.

Rory McIlroy (+1,400)

Third on the board at +1,600 is two-time PGA Championship winner, Rory McIlroy.

Rory took the titles in 2012 and 2014 but will enter this year's PGA with finishes of T33 and T49 in his last two PGA Championship starts. He also looked great at the Wells Fargo tournament, finishing in fifth place with a -4.

We've long talked about Rory's eight-year major championship drought. If he can recapture the magic from his final-round 64 at Augusta National in early April, then 2022 might be the year it ends. 

Tiger Woods Odds to win the 2022 PGA Championship

It looks like Tiger Woods will be entering his second major of the 2022 season. Last month, he took part in a practice round in Tulsa, Oklahoma as a bit of a tune-up, and will be in the field this weekend. As of this writing, Woods' odds sit at +7,000.

He hasn't been a regular fixture at the event in recent years, finishing T37 in 2020 and missing the cut in 2019 — but he did finish second in 2018, two strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka.

How to bet on golf

The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as an outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however. Some of the more popular markets include head-to-head betting, where sportsbooks pair up two golfers and you simply choose who you think will have the lower score over the course of the weekend or for one round only.
