2016 PGA Majors Odds & Props

Jason Day

When all is said and done at the end of every professional golfer’s career, major championships are often used as a measuring stick in establishing a legacy. Considering the extremely deep talent pool in the PGA Tour these days, it’s harder than ever to triumph on golf’s biggest stages.

Online shop Bovada has released odds on which golfers will win a major in 2016, and it’s unsurprising to see a pair of young guns topping the list. Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, the two brightest stars on the Tour, are both even money to do so.

Spieth collected wins at the Masters and U.S. Open last year, while coming one shot away from going to a playoff at the British Open. McIlroy had a down year in 2015 but is widely believed to bounce back in a big way this season.

Jason Day (+200), Rickie Fowler (+350) and Dustin Johnson (+500) round out the top five in major futures markets. Day carried the label of the best player on the Tour without a major title up until last July when he won the PGA Championship in a dominating performance.

That unfortunate designation could easily go to Johnson now. DJ held a share of the lead entering the final round at the 2015 U.S. Open but fell apart on the back nine, culminating in a missed three foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that essentially handed the trophy to Spieth.

Warranted or not, Johnson is perceived as one of the biggest chokers on the tour, and unless you’re extremely confident he’ll right the ship in 2016, it may be wise to stay away from him in this regard.

Bovada is also offering individual odds on each golfer to win a major (listed below) where the 23-year-old Spieth is -140 to do so. If you’re into long shots, Tiger Woods is available at +1600. Woods hasn’t won a major tournament since 2008, and when you factor in his underwhelming recent performances mixed with his rumored injury concerns, you’re better off looking elsewhere for underdog value.
