The second Major winner of 2022 will be revealed this weekend and we’ve got a trio of golfers for punters to consider in our US PGA Championship predictions.
Scottie Scheffler did us proud when claiming Augusta glory at 17.0 in our Masters preview and hopefully we’ll enjoy more success at Southern Hills.
Defending champion Phil Mickelson is absent but there will still be a star-studded field in Tulsa, Oklahoma, so here’s our three off the tee and their US PGA Championship odds:
JORDAN SPIETH @ 19.0
Since landing the 2017 Open, the American has needed to win the US PGA to join Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods in golf’s most exclusive club by completing the career grand slam.
After missing the cut in the Masters for the first time in April, Spieth bounced back to win the RBC Heritage the following week, beating Patrick Cantlay in a play-off despite finishing a lowly 60th in the putting statistics.
“I won without a putter,” Spieth declared, an encouraging claim from a player who won his three majors by putting better than everyone else.
Second place at last week’s AT&T Byron Nelson was another confidence booster and Spieth is one of the best around at picking up shots on par-5 holes, which has been crucial to success in this tournament in the past.
COLLIN MORIKAWA @ 19.0
We’ve produced a great infographic looking at who will win the PGA Championship and Morikawa ticks plenty of boxes regarding the traits of past winners.
Since 2000, half of the victors had at least one major to their name before teeing off, while 15 of the past 22 champions have been American, including the last six.
Morikawa won this event two years ago at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco and landed The Open in 2021 at Royal St George’s in Sandwich after finishing eighth in the PGA and fourth in the US Open.
The 25-year-old was successful in November’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and fifth at Augusta this term, which is a pretty impressive run of results in big tournaments.
MATT FITZPATRICK @ 46.0
Canada’s finest Corey Conners did us a favour when sixth in the Masters as our each-way pick at 51.0 and was also tipped to make the top 10 at 4.5, but his PGA record is not as convincing.
Instead, we’re putting up Fitzpatrick as a lively longshot in our US PGA Championship betting tips following a fine run of results on the PGA Tour this season.
After finishing second at this month’s Wells Fargo Championship, the 27-year-old from Sheffield has made the top 20 in eight of his last 10 events, including five top-10 placings.
Fitzpatrick isn’t the longest driver but he is accurate off the tee and ranks highly in sand saves, which could come in handy at this tough course.
