PGA Championship betting odds are the last of the majors and trail only the Masters and U.S. Open in popularity. Here is a look at the PGA Championship which begins on Thursday, August 13th.
PGA Championship odds include almost all of the top golfers in the world. There are a number of ways that golfers can qualify for the PGA so it is almost a given that all of the top names will be on the PGA Championship betting odds board. All former PGA Champions get in as well as winners of the last five U.S. Opens, winners of the last five Masters, the last Senior PGA champ, the top 15 and ties from last year’s tourney and the Top 70 on the PGA money list. There are other ways that golfers can qualify as well. The total field is 156 with alternates filling in for last minute changes.
Last year it was Padraig Harrington winning in PGA Championship odds. It should be noted though that Tiger Woods did not play in last year’s tournament. Tiger had won the previous two years in PGA Championship odds in 2006 and 2007. Phil Mickelson was the winner in PGA Championship betting odds in 2005. It was Vijay Singh winning in PGA Championship odds in 2004.
Two relative unknowns won the next two years as Shaun Micheel won in 2003 while Rich Beem won in 2002. David Toms was the PGA Championship odds winner in 2001 while Tiger won in 1999 and in 2000.
2009 PGA Championship odds will favor Tiger Woods heavily over the rest of the field. When Tiger is entered in an event he dominates the betting. Oftentimes he is listed at 2-1 in PGA Championship odds with the rest of the field having double-digit PGA Championship odds. There is definitely some value in going with other golfers in online betting in the PGA at the online sportsbook but going against Tiger is never easy to do.
There are some great options for betting PGA Championship odds. You can choose to bet on a golfer to win the event or you can choose the matchups in PGA Championship odds. Get ready for the last major of the year and make your online betting wagers on PGA Championship odds.
