2016 PGA Championship Top Betting Picks

Posted by Derrick Harper on July 27, 2016 in

You got to love another major golf event, just two weeks removed from the amazing finish at the British Open. The PGA Championship comes to Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey. They will be using the lower course, which is a 7,428 yard par 70 course. The prize pool for this event is $10,000,000, and the defending champion is Jason Day. Let’s take a look at some of our top golf betting predictions for the 2016 PGA Championship:

Taking a Look at the 2016 PGA Championship Top Betting Picks

Dustin Johnson starts the list of favorites to win the 2016 PGA Championship. He can nail the golf ball, and this is a long course. The short par 34 going out makes this an interesting course, with just 2 par 5’s on the whole course. Dustin Johnson is the guy that can take advantage of nailing it, and setting up for iron shots. He is the best at it, which is why he is the favorite. Dustin Johnson is listed as 8/1 to win the PGA Championship.

Why not Sergio Garcia? Garcia is another guy that has “never won a major”. He always puts himself into contention, and in the end, you just never know. He finished well at both the US Open and the British Open, which should fare well for him here. Betting on Sergio Garcia at 22-1 is not a terrible idea.

Justin Rose is a bit of an underdog in this event, but he is a monster hitter as well. He is coming off finishing inside the Top 25 in the British Open, and also finished 10th in the Masters. He is due to pick up the big one. The 35 year old from South African is ranked 4th in PGA in Tee to Green. This course is laid out quite well for Justin Rose. He is listed at 28-1, and would be a good underdog pick to win the PGA Championship in 2016.

If you really want to go with an underdog, and feel good about your chances, look no further than Kevin Chappell. He finished second at Arnold Palmer, and also at the Players’ Championship, and also has six Top 10 finishes. He is ready to break out, with all the statistics looking his way. He can hit it long enough to be in play, and also in the Top 10 in Tee to Green. At just 30 years old, he is ready to make a burst onto the scene moment. Kevin Chappell at 125-1 is a fun pick to win the PGA Championship.

In the end, when we are forced to make our pick to win the PGA Championship, we are heading to Zach Johnson. Z.J. is not in the top tier, or even the middle tier to win the event, but as we have seen before – he has all the tools. If Zach’s putter does not abandon him, look for him to be a major player at the PGA Championship. The betting odds of 50-1 are fun for Zach Johnson, and that’s who we will take to win it all.

Best of luck, and enjoy the golf!
