Women’s PGA Championship betting tips
Georgia Hall – 2pt e/w @ 30/1 with bet365
After her maiden win on US Soil recently, Georgia Hall is hitting form at just the right time to push for a first Major Championship win stateside. Hall will fancy her chances here, especially as she is a strong putter, ranking 27th on tour for putts-per-GIR. When you consider that she hits over 68% of GIR, that should set up plenty of birdie opportunities which she is capable of converting. When NCG spoke to Hall about her chances in this event, she made it clear that she can challenge for any title if she arrives at the top of her game. My gut feeling is that she is doing just that this week, and with a recent dominance from British golfers in the US, it may be worth backing Hall to tick another goal off the list.
Chella Choi – 0.5pt e/w @ 200/1 with bet365
It’s always worth keeping an eye on a big price outsider in an event such as this. Choi ticks a few boxes for me, mainly with regards to her LPGA stats relating to course suitability. Choi ranks 3rd on tour for GIR, a key measure for success here, and 4th for sand saves on a course where bunkers are in play for many. A third place finish in the Women’s PGA Championship in 2017, and a recent T17 at the Portland Classic, further increases Choi’s appeal and for that reason I’ll be having a speculative gamble at a big price.
