PGA Championship Betting Favorites

This year, with Hazeltine hosting the PGA Championship betting event, there is an even more likelihood of a crazy finish and picking the favorites is no easy thing.

PGA Championship betting handicappers have their work cut out for them this year. In 2009 as in every edition of the betting the PGA Championship the field is composed of the greatest players on the planet and the host course is set up to allow for the maximum amount of PGA Championship betting drama.

PGA Championship betting is always some of the most unpredictable of the Majors. That might seem strange considering that weather is hardly ever a factor but the unpredictability of betting the PGA Championship results from host courses that have high risk-reward opportunities.

Tiger Woods is the favorite in the PGA Championship betting this year. This needs no real explanation. He’s simply the best player on the planet and the PGA Championship betting event will be his last opportunity to capture a Major (otherwise his season will be a failure, according to him). World number two Phil Mickelson will be back in action in time for the PGA Championship betting action but he could be rusty from this time off. Regardless he’s still on the short list of possible PGA Championship betting winners.

One player that has quietly snuck up on the field and has been as consistent as player can be is Kenny Perry. He’s yet to score a Major title in his career but has gotten closer and closer every year. He’s definitely the man to watch at this year’s PGA Championship betting. His game is perfectly suited for the course layout and his mentality is exactly what’s called for in this betting the PGA Championship layout. If anyone ahead of Perry slips up before Sunday he could easily claim his first PGA Championship title.

Anthony Kim is another player who should be listed among the favorites in the betting the PGA Championship field. He’s ranked 13th in the world and has been inconsistent in the 2009 season but if he’s firing on all cylinders he’s among the favorites without a doubt. Vijay Singh the 11th ranked player in the world heading into the PGA Championship betting is also among the favorites. He’s been consistent but unremarkable, but has the game and experience to win the PGA Championship betting again.

Another player to watch is Retief Goosen the 19th ranked South African. He’s been getting hot of late and although he hasn’t captured a title in a while. He’s definitely among the favorites this year.
