Golf majors 2022 predictions: Top tips for big four events

We’re looking ahead to next year with our golf majors 2022 predictions and have a long-range set of selections for punters to consider.

Bwin provides betting markets on all PGA Tour tournaments and DP World Tour events, but these are our early picks for the big four competitions.

US MASTERS 2022 tips

Augusta National, April 7-10

Bookies will be wary of a gamble on Tiger Woods at 41.0 after he finished second with son Charlie at the PNC Championship when returning from serious leg and ankle injuries sustained in a car accident in February.

The American legend has won five of his 15 majors at Augusta and is no stranger to creating sensational storylines, but taking into account the 2022 golf major dates, we’re sticking with more of a percentage pick this year.

Dustin Johnson earned a green jacket in 2020 after finishing tied for second the year before and was also fourth, sixth and 10th in his three previous visits to this iconic venue, so he appeals at 13.0 in our golf majors 2022 predictions.

US PGA CHAMPIONSHIP 2022 tips

Southern Hills, May 19-22

Phil Mickelson rolled back the years to lift this trophy for the second time at Kiawah Island in 2021, having previously struck in 2005, and Lefty is 81.0 for another big-priced success in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

However, Collin Morikawa is the man who catches the eye at 15.0 in the 2022 US PGA Championship odds, having prevailed in this event when it was staged in San Francisco two years ago.

The American was joint-eighth last season, before going on to finish fourth in the US Open and then first in the British Open, as well as enjoying Ryder Cup glory and victory in the European Tour’s Race to Dubai title following a DP World Tour Championship triumph.

Next golf legend, Brooks Koepka, golf majors

US OPEN 2022 tips

Brookline, June 16-19

Brooks Koepka became the first back-to-back winner of this event in almost 30 years when successful at Erin Hills in 2017 and Shinnecock Hills the following season, emulating Curtis Strange’s double in the late 1980s.

The powerful 31-year-old was also second in 2019 and fourth in 2021, plus he has added a couple of US PGA Championship victories to his impressive CV, so 15.0 looks a fair price for more major glory.

Sam Burns is a 51.0 longshot we’re going to throw into the mix, as the rising star picked up two PGA Tour wins last term and has the all-round game to now improve a moderate record in majors. He is also a tempting 15.0 to land any of the big four in 2022.

THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP 2022 tips

St Andrews, July 14-17

Jon Rahm is a worthy favourite at 10.0 to lift the Claret Jug after following up his US Open success with a career-best third-place finish in this event last season, suggesting that he is ready for a major breakthrough on a links course which should suit.

The Spaniard, nicknamed Rahmbo, finished in the top 10 at all four majors in 2021 and can be backed at 21.0 to repeat that feat.

When looking at the 2022 golf major venues, Tyrrell Hatton is another name to consider at 29.0 here due to his outstanding record in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, which is centred around the ‘home of golf’, taking the top prize in 2016 and 2017 and finishing tied for second twice since.
