PGA Championship Betting Dark Horses to Watch

November 30, 2010 Golf

PGA Championship betting fields are generally among the best on the planet. In fact, betting the PGA Championship event is like watching a veritable who’s who of the world’s best golfers.

But if you’re looking to engage in the PGA Championship betting it’s worth your while to dig a little deeper and search out some of the dark horses as the PGA Championship betting is the most unpredictable of the four Majors.

PGA Championship betting experts are busy at work finalizing the wagering odds before the event gets underway in a few weeks. And while names like Woods, Mickelson and Singh are dotting the betting the PGA Championship lines, it’s quite possible that it will be some unknown that captures the title this year. Remember that the last time Hazeltine hosted the PGA Championship betting event Tiger Woods nearly won the thing, but he fell short and some guy named Rich Beem, an insurance salesman, took the PGA Championship betting title –his first Tour win. That’s certainly something to keep in mind when the betting the PGA Championship.

This year there are plenty of dark horses lurking in the PGA Championship betting field. It’s hard to think of Ernie Els the multiple Major winner as a dark horse but he hasn’t been in serious contention at an event for quite some time. However, keep your eye on the Big Easy in this year’s PGA Championship betting. He’s obviously got the skills to win another title and this elongated course layout plays to his strengths in the betting the PGA Championship competition.

Another top 50 player who has been very quiet of late, but would certainly not be a surprise to see win the PGA Championship betting this year, is Aussie Adam Scott. With one of the purest swings on Tour he’s capable of winning any tournament at any time. But this past year he’s slipped all the way to 44 in the world rankings and won’t be on anyone’s short list to win the PGA Championship betting, but perhaps should be.

 Zach Johnson has also slipped off of most radars. He’s seen his world ranking slip all the way to 23 but he’s certainly got be considered when picking the PGA Championship betting favorites. The course suits his game and he’s already proven he can win a major.

But the ultimate long shot in this year’s PGA Championship betting field is the iconic Long John Daly. After hitting rock bottom he’s back on Tour and anything is possible with this enigmatic golfer.
