Spieth, McIlroy are betting favorites to win PGA Championship

August 1, 2017

The PGA Championship, the fourth and final major of the year, is right around the corner and the odds to win are in. Newly crowned British Open champion Jordan Spieth is favored at 7/1, and for Spieth, a PGA Championship win means the completion of the Career Grand Slam. No pressure.

Tied with Spieth at 7/1 is Rory McIlroy, who tied for fourth at Royal Birkdale but fired his caddie the week after. McIlroy has two PGA Championship wins already, one in 2012 and the other in 2014, and he’s also won twice at Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship.

Behind Spieth and McIlroy is Dustin Johnson at 9/1, Rickie Fowler at 15/1 and Jason Day, Jon Rahm, and Hideki Matsuyama at 20/1. British Open runner-up Matt Kuchar is still on the hunt for first major win and sits at 40/1. Last year’s PGA champion Jimmy Walker is 100/1 to repeat.  

The Quail Hollow Club is in Charlotte, N.C., and the tournament is Aug. 10-13. Here are the odds for the top players, courtesy of GolfOdds.com
