2023 PGA Championship Golf Betting Analysis, Preview & Picks (May 18-21, 2023)

Last year Justin Thomas trailed by seven strokes entering the final round of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. Yet he stormed back to tie Will Zalatoris and went two-under to win a three-hole aggregate playoff. Now, he’ll chase another Wanamaker Trophy starting Thursday, May 18, at Oak Hill against a 2023 PGA Championship field featuring 99 of the world’s top 100 players. Zalatoris is out for the season. But Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, and Rory McIlroy are among the elite 2023 PGA Championship atop the golf betting Lines.

2023 PGA Championship Overview – Tale of Two Choices

At the onset of online betting action, some gamblers are fading Jon Rahm, who has been rolling but is priced too short. Of course, Rahm won the Masters. And he was a runner-up at the Mexico Open over the past five weeks. Of great concern is that Rahm finished outside the top 10 three times. Including the Dell Technologies Match Play, where he failed to advance.

Given the depth and firepower in the professional ranks, it seems absurd to state that someone can win the Grand Slam. However, that’s a conversation we may be entertaining as the sport heads to the wire.

On the other hand, many sharps like the value on Patrick Cantlay at +2200. The 31-year-old tied for third at the 2019 PGA Championship. However, he has been lackluster in his majors. Still, the 2021 FedEx Cup champion has the skill to win at least one. In sum, the UCLA alum has 32 top-five finishes and eight victories in 153 career tour events.
Late on, Patrick Cantlay’s game has done plenty of talking. Has finished in the top 10 in half of his starts. Additionally, he was in the penultimate group at the Masters before being submarined by a final-round 75.

Scottie Scheffler Seeks Rebound

So far, with nine starts in 2023 (before the Nelson), Scottie Scheffler’s worst finish is a T-12. Correlate that Scheffler’s game is so consistent that it can come off as plodding. Hence at Oak Hill, plodding will work.

Xander Schauffele – Due For a Breakout?

To summarize, Xander Schauffele has only one top-10 finish in six PGA tries. Yet it may not matter. Schauffele has finished T-5 or better in four of his past five tour starts. He ranks fourth in strokes gained and fifth in scoring. His game has no holes, and he remains cool under fire. Many sharps believe that Schauffele will earn his major breakthrough in 2023.

Koepka Fights Ghosts of PGA Championships Past

Consider Brooks Koepka nearly surrendered an insurmountable lead on Sunday at the 2019 PGA at Bethpage Black. Additionally, he dominated the competition on Saturday night of the 2022 PGA, only to flop. And then he admitted that Phil got in his head Sunday at the 2021 PGA. Of course, Koepka was thoroughly outplayed by Rahm during the Sunday marathon at this year’s Masters. Can anyone say, “DUE?”
