PGA Championship Golf Betting Tips – Who Lifts The Wanamaker?

It’s PGA Championship week? The golf world descends on Valhalla, but who do we fancy for victory…

 

It’s time for the second men’s major of the year – the PGA Championship – but who are our betting tips for major glory at Valhalla Golf Club?

For the first time in ten years, the PGA Championship returns to Valhalla, the scene of a certain someone’s last major victory…

Brooks Koepka became the first LIV Golf League star to win a major title with his victory at the PGA Championship last year.

Will World No 1 Scottie Scheffler be the man to beat? Can Rory McIlroy get back in the winning circle in majors? Or will we see another first-time major winner?

Who will win? Matt Coles takes a look at some of his favourites for the second major of the year…

PGA Championship golf betting tips and preview

Venue: Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, Kentucky, United States
Date: April 11-14, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,428 yards
Defending champion: Brooks Koepka (-9)

Scottie Scheffler @ 4/1 with bet365

In my opinion, the only thing stopping this man from winning a second major of 2024 is whether his wife, Meredith, goes into labour during the tournament.

Scheffler has been in incredible form throughout the early part of 2024, winning in four of his last five starts. His only event that wasn’t a victory – a T2 finish.

He blew the field away to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational by five. He then returned to TPC Sawgrass to become the first player to ever successfully defend his title at the Players Championship.

That was followed by a comfortable victory at the Masters (his second major title), with a win at the RBC Heritage coming eight days later on a Monday finish.

Scheffler was 7/2 at Augusta. He is slightly further out this week, at a MASSIVE 4/1… He’s the favourite for a reason, so why would you not put your money on him?

Brooks Koepka @ 14/1 with bet365

The defending champion, Brooks Koepka has to be among those that you put some money on this week.

He is a three-time PGA Champion, and along with two US Open victories, his tally of five major championships is third only to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson of those who will feature at Valhalla this week.

He is one of several LIV Golf stars who you could argue are in with a shout for victory in the season’s first major championship. Koepka is always one that has tried to trend upwards for the majors, and having won last time out at LIV Golf Singapore, could we see the American lift the Wanamaker Trophy for a fourth time? He is 14/1 to do just that.

Max Homa @ 28/1 with bet365

Surely it is only a matter of time before Max Homa wins his first major title?

He has been trending in the right direction in the majors, with top ten finishes in his last two outings. A T10 at Royal Liverpool last year was followed by a T3 finish at Augusta in April, his best result in a major championship to date.

At 28/1, Homa is certainly a good shout in the each way markets, with bet365 offering money for golfers finishing in the top eight and ties.

Will Zalatoris @ 50/1 with bet365

Having come so close at the 2022 edition of this tournament, and then missed the majority of 2023 through injury, Will Zalatoris is back, and looking to break that major duck.

The Californian has played in 11 major championships to date. Incredibly, he has top ten finishes in seven of those, including three runners-up results.

He has finished 2nd at the Masters, US Open and the aforementioned PGA Championship. Following his lengthy layoff through injury, he returned with a T9 at Augusta earlier this year.

He has been a nearly-man on so many occasions at the majors, but 50/1 says that this week could be Will’s to get into the winners’ circle.

Sepp Straka @ 80/1 with bet365

Austria’s leading star is my outside shot this week. Sepp Straka comes in off a good week at the Wells Fargo Championship, and with good performances in the majors in 2023.

He finished T7 at last year’s PGA Championship, before finishing runner-up behind Brian Harman at the Open Championship in July. The big man is 80/1 for the victory this week, and another good shout as an each way target.

Other Big Name Odds

7/1 – Rory McIlroy
14/1 – Xander Schauffele
16/1 – Ludvig Aberg, Jon Rahm
25/1 – Bryson DeChambeau, Collin Morikawa

Matt Coles

Matt Coles

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
