It’s time for the second men’s major championship of 2023 as the best players in the world have made their way to Rochester, New York, for the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club.
Justin Thomas is the defending champion, but Jon Rahm enters the week as one of the betting favorites (+750). The Spaniard has amassed four wins already this season including the Masters in April — his second major championship victory.
However, it’s world No. 2 Scottie Scheffler on top of the betting odds list, sitting at +700. Scheffler tied for fifth at last week’s AT&T Byron Nelson and grabbed a T-10 finish at Augusta National.
At double Scheffler’s odds is Rory McIlroy (+1400), who is going through a bit of a funk. In his last three stroke-play events, the Northern Irishman has missed the cut at the Players and Masters, and tied for 47th at the Wells Fargo Championship.
