Among the favorites, which golfer deserves the most attention?
Tiger most definitely deserves some attention. He won the 2002 U.S. Open at Bethpage. The way he struck the ball at Augusta in the Masters means he could end up in the final pairing on Sunday.
Brooks Koepka’s getting the most love. Koepka could have forced a playoff at the Masters if he had made a key putt on the 72nd hole. He will be motivated, but it takes more than motivation. Although Koepka has the length on his drives to traverse Bethpage, he’s not the pick among the favorites.
It might be time for Rory McIlroy to win another major. McIlroy finished twenty-first at Augusta National. He bounced back with an eighth place finish at the Wells Fargo Championship. Rory’s average drive is 314. He’s got a great shot among the favorites to win this week.
Is there a non-favorite golfer at +3300 odds or less that can beat the favorites?
Rickie Fowler played great at the last major event at Bethpage, the 2016 The Barclay’s Open. He shot a -6. That was 3 strokes off winner Patrick Reed. Not only that, but Fowler’s struck the ball well. He finished ninth at the Masters. In his last tournament played, the Wells Fargo Championship, he finished fourth.</p.
Rickie’s been getting off to slow starts. If he can shoot under par on Thursday and Friday, he’ll be in a position to win.
What golfers between +3300 and +6000 or l can win the 2019 PGA Championship?
We must take Adam Scott at +5500 seriously. Scott shot a -7 at the 2016 The Barclay’s, only 2 strokes off the winner. Scott hasn’t been in great form. He failed to make the cut at the Zurich Open. He did shoot a 69 and 68 in the first two rounds at the Masters, though. If Scott returns to his best form, he will have a chance on Sunday.
Is their golfer not listed that can take home the trophy?
Gary Woodland has a much better shot than his odds indicate. At +7000, we shouldn’t even consider Woodland, right? Not so fast. He had a great tournament the last time a big golf tournament took place at Bethpage. Like Scott at the 2016 The Barclay’s, Woodland shot a -7.
His recent form has been awful. But, what can we expect from a +7000 shot? Woodland’s a good enough golfer to get back on track this week. If he does, he could be in the running for the trophy this weekend.
