1st Round Morning Update: Dawn has broken in Farmingdale, NY and the 101st PGA Championship is about to tee off under party sunny skies. How much has the early week rain softened the course? That could bring some shorter hitters into contention. We love PGC Major tournament betting - Let's get it on!

2nd Round Morning Update: Another beautiful day is on the way east of New York City and the second round of the 101st PGA Championship, one of golf's four major tournaments, is about to tee off. A Majors Master, Brooks Koepka sits atop the leader board after shooting a course record seven-under-par 63 on Thursday. Bettors should buy in now as his odds will continue to fall since a second straight title run is well underway.

3rd Round Morning Update: 101st PGA Championship Round 3 action plays out in perfect weather conditions in mid-Long Island today. Heading into moving day, the Master of PGA Majors Brooks Koepka continues to dominate as he owns a 7-stroke lead over Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott.

Final Round Morning Update: Owning a seven stroke led, over a group of five that includes World #1 Dustin Johnson, it's a near given that Brooks Koepka will win the 101st PGA Championship. His stroll to back-to-back titles will be nice as the Long Island weather will be sunny and warm today. Koepka's lead is so large - the Majors Master has been taking off many online betting boards.

 

PGA Championship Odds

It's not easy to pick a winner in the futures or outright markets. Luckily, all the top sportsbooks have a huge number of betting lines and markets available, and you'll find PGA Championship Odds 2019 are not just limited to the outright market. Below is a list of the most popular lines, and our detailed explanation of each. Find more information on our main golf page.

PGA Championship Top 20 Finish

In a starting field of around 100 golfers, it can be difficult at times to pick out a winner, let alone a top-five finisher. That's why the Top 20 Finish market is so useful. While the odds will not be as juicy, as those in the outright market, there is a much better chance to cash a winning 2019 PGA Championship ticket.

Favorites playing four solid rounds make Top 20 betting a wide ranging option. The line is much lower, than his 9.00 outright odds, but a $163 bet on Brooks Koepka returned $100.

PGA Championship Top 20 Finish William Hill
Dustin Johnson 1.03
Hideki Matsuyama 1.05
Luke Lst 1.05
Harold Varner III 1.06
Adam Scott 1.10
Jazz Janewattananond 1.10
Jordan Spieth 1.10
Matt Walace 1.10
Paul Cantlay 1.10
Xander Schauffele 1.10

 

PGA Championship Top European Odds

Europeans are having a very impressive run on the PGA Tour at the moment. Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari and Jon Rahm are all ranked in the world's top ten, and all hail from the other side of the Atlantic.

In this PGA Major market, bettors can put their knowledge of European players to the test by picking the top invader. Jumping the pond, Rory McIlroy is a great option as Bethpage Black is a long course that suits the big hitters.

PGA Championship Top European  William Hill
Matt Wallace 1.44
Justin Rose 7.50
Tommy Fleetwood 8.00
Lucas Bjerregaard 11.00
Danny Willet 21.00
Rory Mcllroy 26.00
Francesco Molinari 34.00
Tyrrell Hatton 41.00

PGA Championship 1st Round Leader Odds

It is challenging to pick the tournament winner. So is selecting the PGA Championship leader after each round. Yet, the 1st Round Leader market is one of the most popular wager options. Fast starting golfers have an advantage here and bettors can earn a hefty return by correctly selecting the first round  leaders. Prices are extremely thick - So find your favorite and jump on in!

Leader After 1st Round Prices William Hill
Dustin Johnson 21.00

PGA Championship Race Winning margin odds

Unlike some of the markets, the Race Winning Margin is limited to just a few viable options. Essentially, you're looking at the margin of victory, and history shows that it's more often than not between zero and three strokes. Rory McIlroy was the exception in 2012 when he played incredible golf to win by eight. We would recommend one stroke, which is the favourite at 3.5, although there is a big chance of a playoff in 2019.

Margin of Victory Odds William Hill
Exactly One Shot 3.50
Playoff Required 4.00
Four or More Shots 4.33
Exactly Two Shots 4.50
Exactly Three Shots 5.50

PGA Championship Playoff Odds

So given the chance of a playoff, why not have a punt on this market. After 72 holes of golf it seems incredible that two or more players could still be deadlocked at the top, although it is not uncommon. Martin Kaymer and Keegan Bradley were the beneficiaries of consecutive playoffs at the tournament in 2010 and 2011 respectively, although there hasn't been one since. We are overdue, and you'll get odds posted at 4.0 on it happening.

Playoff To Decide The Winner? William Hill
NO 1.22
YES 4.00

 

PGA Championship Top Former Winner Odds

Tiger Woods is returning to his best form and is likely to be one of the former champions competing for the PGA Championship trophy. Woods has won four prior tournaments, and he also won the US Open in 2002 when it was played at the same course. He is one to watch on a circuit he loves to get around. However, if you're looking at recent champions, it will be hard to top Rory McIlroy and last year's champion Brooks Koepka.

PGA Championship 2019 Betting Picks

While the 2019 tournament is sure to throw up a surprise or two - there has to be a favourite. Opening BMW PGA Betting Odds have Tiger Woods as top chalk with 9.00 decimal odds. World number-one Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka are tied with a 10.00 PGA Championship price.

PGA Championship Betting Picks

It's an interesting theory considering that Johnson has only one major victory (he won the US Open in 2016), and while he is one of the most consistent golfers on the tour, he hasn't exactly got the track record to warrant favouritism.

His best performance at this event was 5th in 2010. Johnson can hit a long ball, which is perhaps why he is favoured, although we'd be more comfortable if he had a proven record of wins in the biggest tournaments.

Following his come-from behind US Masters victory, Tiger Woods is back to favorite status as he leads the PGA Championship field as chalk. Our "way to early" pick is Rory McIlroy, who is also a big hitter and is back in form and looking good. We expect him to have a big 2019, and he's worth an early wager at odds around 11.00. Stick with us for full PGA Championship coverage.

PGA Top Betting Tips

We can't stress enough the importance of research when betting on golf. There are several sources available, and simple things like average drive length, putting form and course performance can lead you to a hefty payout.

PGA Betting Tips

Yet even the best plans can be undone in the betting world. That's why we encourage you to implement live betting into your wager routine. Tournament golf is a four-day marathon, and no player wins the trophy on Thursday. By analysing Round One action, we can garner a better understanding of how each player is reacting to the course and the weather.

Though you may get shoter odds, you will have a better chance of a successful bet if you scope out the best Round One performers.

How does the PGA Championship work

The PGA Championship is a typical stroke-play golf tournament where the lowest scoring player over four rounds is declared the winner.

Out of a field of approximately 100, around half will be 'cut' after the first two rounds. Typically, the players eligible to continue to the final rounds will be in the top-50 on the leaderboard, or within ten strokes of the leader.

In the event that two or more players are tied at the end of the four rounds, a playoff will be enforced. This involves the leaders playing extra hole(s) in a sudden death contest to determine the outright winner.

The All-Time Champions

The PGA Championship has been played since 1916 and dominated by American players throughout history. 

Jack Nicklaus

Only four players outside of the USA have won the tournament more than once. Below is a list of the all-time best performers:
