The 2024 PGA Championship

Ignore the drama currently going on in the golf world. Ignore all the fighting and complaining between the world’s different tours. All of that gets pushed to the background during the week of a major championship. For four weeks a year, nothing else matters but the best golfers in the world battling it out for 72 holes. The only drama this week is to see who can hoist the Wannamaker Trophy come Sunday 👇

  • Course Info: Valhalla Golf Course is a par-71 stretching all the way to over 7,600 yards. Tee times begin Thursday at 7:15AM

  • The PGA Championship was hosted here in 2014 when Rory McIlroy claimed the title

  • World #1 Scottie Scheffler will be going for his second straight major championship after winning the Masters just one month ago

  • Scott Scheffler: +400

  • Rory McIlroy: +750

  • Xander Schauffele: +1400

  • Brooks Koepka: +1600

  • Jon Rahm: +1600

Big Three Enter in Elite Form

Scottie Scheffler

Undoubtedly the world’s best golfer enters the week winning four of his last five starts, including The Masters. He took last week off to the celebrate the birth of his first child, but he is back on the course looking to win his second straight major title. He seems unbeatable at the moment, but two other big names may have something to say about that 👀

Rory McIlroy

It’s been ten years since Rory has won a major, but he is now returning to a course where he previously claimed the title in 2014. He also displayed some of his old dominance this past week by winning the Wells Fargo Championship. If anyone is going to take down Scottie, it just might be the #2 golfer in the world coming off an impressive win 📈

Brooks Koepka

Let’s not forget that the 2023 PGA Championship was won by none other than Brooks Koepka, reminding the golf world of his capabilities by capturing the title last year. All the talk coming into this week is of a potential duel between Scottie and Rory, but Koepka is coming off a win as well in his last start on the LIV Tour and is the exact type of golfer to crash the Scottie vs Rory party

Favorite Outright Bets

💰 Scottie Scheffler: +400

Don’t overthink it. Not extra words needed. Just bet it

💰 Max Homa: +3500

He recently posted his career best finish in a major after placing third at The Masters. Golf experts have been looking to Homa to break through at a major for a few years now. After finally getting in the mix a month ago, it wouldn’t shock anyone to see the world’s #10 ranked golfer at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday

💰 Jason Day: +7500

The popular Aussie golfer has quietly had a nice start to this season, including a 4th place finish last week at the Wells Fargo. It also doesn’t hurt that back in 2014 he placed 15th at this same event, so he clearly has a good feel for the course as well
