Golf Betting odds for the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol

The 2016 PGA Championship golf major tournament is taking place this week from July 28-31, 2016, on the Lower Course at the Baltusrol Golf Club located in Springfield, New Jersey. Here is a list of the betting odds for the golfers to win the 2016 PGA Championship.

The PGA Championship dates back to 1916 and it is the fourth and last major being played in 2016. The PGA Championship was a match-play event until 1958 when it switched to a stroke play event. Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus are tied for most PGA Championships with five each. Tiger Woods is alone in third place with four PGA Championships.

All golfers with odds of 70 to 1 or less are listed below with comments. Then a number of notable golfers with higher odds are also listed with comments explaining why.

Good luck to all the PGA golfers and especially the bettors this week in the 2016 PGA Championship!

1. Dustin Johnson - 15/2 odds

After tying for 2nd place at the 2016 Canadian Open last week, Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite this week to win the 2016 PGA Championship at 15 to 2 to 1 odds. DJ won his first career major at the 2016 U.S. Open and he tied for 9th at the British Open. He also won the WGC-Bridgestone on June 30th. He's a big threat but is he worth the low odds this week?

2. Rory McIlroy - 8 to 1 

After missing the cut at the U.S. Open, Rory Mcilroy tied for 5th at the 2016 British Open and now he's the second betting choice to win the 2016 PGA Championship at 8 to 1 odds. Rory McIlroy has already won two PGA Championships in 2012 and 2014. Expect him to play well this week.

3. Jason Day - 10 to 1

Jason Day has three wins already in 2016 but he's only tied for 10th at the Masters, tied for 8th at the U.S. Open and tied for 22nd at the British Open. Jason Day has only one major win, which did come at the 2015 PGA Championship, but his 22nd place finish last week at the Canadian Open does not exactly inspire confidence he's going to turn it around and win this week at Baltusrol. 

T-4. Henrik Stenson - 14 to 1

If Henrik Stenson plays as well this week as he did a couple weeks ago in winning his first major at the 2016 British Open his 14 to 1 odds are a steal. But will he play as well? Almost certainly not coming off the high of winning his first major. Still, if you believe in him he's a good price this week.

T-4. Jordan Spieth - 14 to 1

Jordan Spieth finished second to Jason Day at last year's PGA Championship but he's not played as well this year as last. Spieth does have two wins in 2016 but after his Masters meltdown he only tied for 37th at the U.S. Open and 30th at the British Open. He'll show a lot if he manages to win the PGA Championship this week. 

6. Phil Mickelson - 20 to 1

Phil Mickelson won his only PGA Championship in 2005 the last time it was played at Baltusrol. That's certainly a big positive for him this week but it's hard to see him playing as well this week as he did a couple weeks ago at Royal Troon. It would be great to see him win this week but it's tough to bet on him.

7. Sergio Garcia - 28 to 1

After winning the 2016 Byron Nelson, Sergio Garcia has tied for 5th in both the U.S. Open and the British Open in his last three PGA Tour starts. Sergio has two second place finishes in the PGA Championship but since 2008 he's missed the cut three times and has never been a threat for the win in this major. 

8. Adam Scott - 30 to 1

Adam Scott has the talent to win this week but he was only tied for 42nd at the Masters, tied for 18th at the U.S. Open and tied for 43rd at the British Open. He hasn't really played that great since he reeled off consecutive wins this year back in late February and early March.

9. Justin Rose - 33 to 1

Justin Rose is another player with the talent to win this week but he's only played in three tournaments since early May including missing the cut at the U.S. Open and a 22nd place tie at the British Open in his last start. He was 4th in this tournament last year.

T-10. Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler - 35 to 1 odds each

Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler are two PGA golfers who would really need to turn things around to win this week. Neither player has played well enough to win in months so unless you are fan of one of these two they are probably not worth a bet this week.

T-12. Patrick Reed, Charl Schwatrzel, Matt Kuchar - 50 to 1 odds each

Patrick Reed tied for 12th at the British Open in his last start. That's his career best finish for any major. Matt Kuchar has never won a major and he's not won a tournament in over 27 months. Charl Schwartzel tied for 18th at the British Open in his last start. He's got a little value here at 50 to 1 odds.

T-15. Zach Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Branden Grace - 55 to 1 odds each

Branden Grace finished alone in 3rd place in the PGA Championship last year but he only tied for 72nd two weeks ago at the British Open in his last start. Brooks Koepka was 2nd at the Bryson Nelson and the St. Jude Classic and then was tied for 13th at the U.S. Open in his last start. I'd like him this week but he's just not played enough lately to have confidence in him. Zach Johnson has played well in his last three starts and could be a mild threat this week.

T-18. Brandt Snedeker, J.B. Holmes, Martin Kaymer, Hideki Matsuyama - 60 to 1 odds each

Brandt Sndedker could be a threat this week off his tie for 5th last week at the Canadian Open. J.B. Holmes was a good 3rd at the British Open in his last start but he's never played well in the PGA Championship. In all likelihood, neither Martin Kaymer or Hideki Matsuyama have played well enough lately to win this week.

T-22. Lee Westwood, Danny Willett, Louis Oosthuizen - 66 to 1 odds each

Hard to bet Lee Westwood as he chases his first major this week at age 43. Danny Willett has likely not played well enough lately to win this week. Louis Oosthuizen missed the cut at the British Open in his last start. Louis's lone win on the PGA Tour remains the 2010 British Open.  

T-25. Jim Furyk, Shane Lowry - 70 to 1 odds each 

Jim Furyk tied for 2nd at the 2016 U.S. Open and was alone in 13th place last week in Canada. He was 2nd in this major in 2013 but he's only won one tournament since 2010. Shane Lowry missed the cut at the 2016 British Open in his last start.

Notables

  • Jason Dufner - 100 to 1 odds

Jason Dufner won the PGA Championship in 2013 for his lone major win to date. He tied for 22nd at the British Open in his last start. t's not impossible he could play well this week at big odds.

  • Keegan Bradley - 100 to 1 odds

Keegan Bradley won the PGA Championship in 2011 for his only major win to date. Bradley had not played well for a long time but he did tie for 18th at the British Open in his last start.

  • Jhonattan Vegas - 125 to 1 odds

If you like hot golfers than Jhonattan Vegas might be a bet for you this week. Vegas won the Canadian Open last week for his second career win. 

  • Padraig Harrington - 175 to 1 odds

Padraig Harrington won the PGA Championship in 2008. He's missed the cut in this major in each of the last three years, though, making him a risky bet this week.
