The 2017 PGA Championship will officially begin on August 13th, 2017. It will be the final major championship of the year, with many of the world’s best golfers taking part. Many online sportsbooks in Ireland are now offering betting odds for who wins.
In this article we’ll take a look at a few of the 2017 PGA Championship betting favorites, and discuss each man’s best path to victory.
Rory McIlroy: 7/1
Ireland’s top golfer, and perhaps the best golfer competing right now is Rory McIlroy. The 28 year old Holywood native has won numerous major championships over the years, including the PGA Championship in both 2012 and 2014.
McIlroy has yet to win a major in 2017, but he’s found some great success in smaller tournaments this year. The reason however why Rory is such a good option to bet on the 2017 PGA Championship in Ireland is that he consistently performs well at Quail Hallow, having won two PGA tournaments there and earning top 10 finishes in another four.
Any golf betting experts felt the PGA Championship was the tournament that Rory had the best shot at winning this year, and the oddsmakers seem to agree as he’s the betting favorite. As of now, BetVictor Sportsbook lists McIlroy’s odds to win the PGA Championship at 7/1.
Jordan Spieth: 7/1
Another solid option to bet on the 2017 PGA Championship in Ireland is Jordan Spieth. The 24 year old is coming off an incredible win at the 2017 Open Championship, reestablishing himself as perhaps the best young golfer in the world.
Spieth is ranked 2nd in the world right now, with 3 tournament wins so far in 2017. Many analysts feel Spieth is primed to get the PGA Championship win this year. He’s a top competitor with considerable experience for such a young age, but he’s facing against a number of incredible players.
If indeed Jordan manages to win the 2017 PGA Championship, he’ll make Irish gambling news by becoming the youngest player to win all four major championships. With Spieth’s odds of 7/1 to do so, he might be work a wager on.
Dustin Johnson: 8/1
After years of being considered a mid-tier golfer, Dustin Johnson shocked the world in 2016 by winning the US Open and taking 4th at the Masters. He was named player of the year and reached the top of the world golf rankings.
Fast forward more than a year, and Johnson is still one of the best golfers in the world, and one of the best options to bet on the 2017 PGA Championship in Ireland. He kicked off 2017 with top 10 finishes in his first four tournaments, and has already won a number of events including the Genesis Open.
Despite a back injury sustained before the 2017 Masters tournament, Johnson is still a 2017 PGA Championship betting favorite according to almost all golf betting sites. He was looking tremendous prior to the injury, and seems ready to comeback heading into this tournament. As of now, Dustin Johnson’s odds to win the 2017 PGA Championship are set at 8/1.
