Futures Bets for the PGA Championship

A few books have their PGA Championship odds up and we have a three pack of players that we started our PGA Portfolio with.

The 2022 PGA Championship will take place at Southern Hills Country Club in Oklahoma. Check out our course preview if you haven't already.

Viktor Hovland - One of the hottest golfers in the world and someone who will win a major at some point soon. This is a course that he should know very well as he played his college career at Oklahoma State. His strokes gained approach stats are elite as he is 3rd on the PGA Tour. He's 2nd on tour in total driving and 12th in SG off the tee, these will be important on a long track at Southern Hills that demands strong off the tee and approach play.

Scottie Scheffler - This is a course that Scottie has said is his favorite course, and he is from the Texas area so he will be very familiar with this style of course. It's been compared to Augusta National and it should test players all around games. Scheffler is very solid, pretty much in all areas of his game, and should be able to have a lot of success on this course. He can hit the ball a long ways, he is very strong around the green, and his putting is very good. He had a lot of success in all of the majors last year and we think he will break through and win one this year, hopefully the PGA Championship.

Will Zalatoris - Rounding out our trio is another young star on the tour. Zalatoris also had a lot of success last year in the majors and nearly chased down Matsuyama last year. His strokes gained stats are very impressive; 9th SG off the tee, 2nd SG approach, and 1st SG tee to green. He definitely will need to have his putter heat up but if that happens he can play with anyone in the world.

We expect all 3 of these players to have a good year so we really want to bet these early. As the season goes on the numbers for all these majors will shift and change. The better a certain player is playing the lower the odds will be for all these majors.
