This week’s 2023 PGA Championship is the second major the year, and we’re picking a long shot to win the first major of his career. Here’s our pick, the PGA Championship betting favorites and everything else you need to know for the week.

PGA Championship odds: Long-shot bet

Tyrrell Hatton has accomplished a lot in his career, and he regularly contends at major championships, but he has never won one of them. We’re betting that will change this week.

Hatton comes into the PGA with +4,000 odds-to-win and a whole lot of momentum. In his last two starts, Hatton finished T3 at the Wells Fargo Championship and T5 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, bringing his top-10 total to five for this season.

His best finish of the year came at one of the biggest events of the year, a runner-up at the Players Championship, which bodes well for his chances.

In his eight previous appearances at the PGA Championship, Hatton has collected four top-25s and two top-10s, and he finished T13 at last year’s PGA at Southern Hills.

Should you bet $10 for Hatton to win and he ends up hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday, you’ll earn a cool $400. For an insurance bet or one with less risk, put some money on Hatton to finish top 10 or top 20.

How last week’s long shot fared

At last week’s AT&T Byron Nelson, we felt we had a great pick in line with J.J. Spaun at +6600 to win. Alas, we never got to see just how good our prediction was, because Spaun withdrew from the tournament before the first shots were struck.

World No. 1 Jon Rahm and World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler are locked at the top of the standings as co-betting favorites with odds-to-win of +750. Rory McIlroy comes in third at +1200, and then the odds drop off significantly with Brooks Koepka, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele next best with +2000 odds-to-win.
