Odds to Win the 2019 PGA Championship: Ahead of Final Round, it’s Koepka and Everyone Else

A detail of the Wanamaker Trophy during the first round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on August 9, 2018 in St Louis, Missouri.

Heading into the final round of the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, Brooks Koepka has a commanding lead and is an astronomical favorite to win the fourth major of his career.

Koepka, the 2018 PGA Championship winner, is sitting at a ridiculous 12 under after three days in Long Island. Harold Varner III (-5), Jazz Janewattananond (-5), Luke List (-5), Dustin Johnson (-5), Hideki Matsuyama (-4) and Matt Wallace (-4) sit behind Koepka.

Koepka is the extremely heavy -1200 fave to win the tournament at Bovada, with Johnson (+1600), List (+5000), Matsuyama (+8000) and Varner (+10000) well back. It’s unusual for a tournament of this magnitude to seem like it’s already over after 54 holes, but it certainly feels that way in this case.

Here’s a look at the shop’s full list of odds:

2019 PGA Championship Odds

Odds as of May 19 at Bovada

  • Brooks Koepka -1200
  • Dustin Johnson +1600
  • Luke List +5000

Brooks Koepka has become synonymous with high leaderboard finishes in major tournaments over the past few years, and the American once again stood head and shoulders above the competition in the opening round of the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black Course.

Koepka shot a course-record 63 which had the rest of the field chasing him from the very start. By the end of the afternoon only one player, Danny Lee, was within three strokes of Koepka.

Entering second-round play, Lee sits one shot behind Koepka at 6 under. Tommy Fleetwood (-3), Mike Lorenzo-Vera (-2), Luke List (-2), Sung Kang (-2), Chez Reavie (-2) and Pat Perez (-2) are within striking distance.

It’s Koepka and Everybody Else

Koepka is the +160 favorite to go back to back at the PGA Championship, with Dustin Johnson (+1000), Fleetwood (+1200), Rickie Fowler (+2000), Jason Day (+2000), Jon Rahm (+2200), Justin Rose (+3300), Patrick Cantlay (+3300), Rory McIlroy (+3300) and Tiger Woods (+3300) rounding out the top 10 at Bovada.

Woods had a tough round that was littered with mistakes on Thursday, as a few isolated missed putts and bad shots dropped him to +2 after 18 holes. There’s still plenty of time for Tiger to make a surge up the leaderboard, but he’ll have to have a strong second round in order to remain competitive in the second major of the year.

Here’s a look at the book’s full list of odds:

The PGA Championship will establish its new place in golf’s major championship rotation when the 2019 edition of the tournament gets underway at Bethpage Black Golf Course in Farmingdale, New York from May 16-19. In the eyes of oddsmakers, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka are the co-favorites to win.

Johnson and Koepka are +1000 co-favorites at Bovada, with Rory McIlroy (+1200), Tiger Woods (+1200), Jon Rahm (+1600), Justin Rose (+2000), Rickie Fowler (+2000), Jason Day (+2200), Xander Schauffele (+2500) and Francesco Molinari (+2800) rounding out the top 10. Justin Thomas announced on May 13 that he will not participate in the tournament due to a wrist injury.

PGA Championship Returns to its Spring Roots

This is the first time the PGA Championship will take place in May since 1949. The event was previously played as the last major of the season in August. It’s the 101st playing of the tournament, which first started in 1916.

Bethpage Black is hosting the PGA Championship for the first time.

Bethpage Black is hosting the PGA Championship for the first time, but the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Opens were played there. Bethpage will also host the Ryder Cup in 2024. The course, a 7,426-yard par 70, is incredibly tough and rewards only the smartest players. Simply put, minimizing even the smallest of mistakes is key to winning at the Black Course.

Can Woods go Back to Back in Major Tournaments?

All former PGA champions will be in the field, as well as the last five Masters winners, previous five U.S. Open champs, past five Open Championship victors and the last three Players Championship winners.

Koepka is back to retain the Wanamaker Trophy after emerging triumphant at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Golf Course. Woods, who finished as the runner-up in that tournament, is riding some serious momentum after winning the Masters Tournament – his first major win since the 2008 U.S. Open.

The British Open is in the books and only one major golf tournament remains in the 2017-18 PGA Tour season: the PGA Championship. This time around, the PGA Championship will be played at Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, Missouri from August 9-12. According to sportsbooks, Dustin Johnson is the favorite to win the hardware.

Dustin Johnson is the +800 favorite to win the 2018 PGA Championship.

Johnson is the front-runner at +800 odds, with Rory McIlroy (+1200), Justin Thomas (+1400), Jordan Spieth (+2000), Brooks Koepka (+2000), Jason Day (+2000), Rickie Fowler (+2200), Justin Rose (+2200), Jon Rahm (+2500) and Tiger Woods (+2800) making up the top 10 at the shop. To find out my top three PGA Championship picks, visit my Expert Picks piece. For a list of my dark horse picks, check out my sleepers article.

This is the last time the PGA Championship will be the final major of the year, as starting in 2019 it will become the second major, taking place in May after the Masters and before the U.S. Open. The tournament, which boasts a champion purse of $10.5 million, is the only one of the four majors to be a tournament almost exclusively for professional players. The last time Bellerive hosted an event of this magnitude came in 1992 when the track was the setting for the PGA Championship that year.

Can Thomas retain the bragging rights?

Thomas is back to defend his title after the American came away with the first major triumph of his career in the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. At one point, as many as five men held a share of the lead in the final round before Thomas separated himself from the pack to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy. Patrick Reed, Louis Oosthuizen and 2018 British Open winner Francesco Molinari finished as the runners-up at 6 under, while Hideki Matsuyama, Rickie Fowler and Kevin Kisner ended the weekend with T-5 showings with scores of 5 under.

What should bettors expect out of Bellerive?

The course, a 7,547-yard par 71, underwent an extensive $9.5-million renovation in 2005-06 to establish itself as a bigger player on the PGA Tour. Bellerive was built around a large creek that comes into play on nine of the holes, with water hazards wreaking potential havoc on 11 holes. The track is known for its large and undulating greens but figures to play much easier than the other three courses which hosted majors in 2018 – Augusta National (Masters Tournament), Shinnecock Hills (U.S. Open) and Carnoustie (British Open).

The 100th PGA Championship is shaping up to be an absolute classic. Who are you picking to win in Missouri? Have your say in the comment section below. For more betting information on the links, head over to our golf page.
