Matt Fitzpatrick is featured in the PGA Championship Props

PGA Championship Props: Back Fitzpatrick To Be Top Englishman

The second major championship of the year is upon us as players head to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the 104th PGA Championship. With it comes a wide variety of golf betting options as numerous props, novelty bets and much more are available for the general public to indulge in.

With Phil Mickelson sidelined for personal reasons, the PGA Championship at Southern Hills is one of the rare occasions in which the defending champion will not in fact defend.

While Mickelson is not in attendance, Tiger Woods will be, as the 15-time major champion will look to inch closer to Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record.

Woods is heavily prominent in all prop bets as his performance is always of interest to the broader sports world. While we will not be targeting the 46-year-old, below you will find numerous 2022 PGA Championship prop bets courtesy of Sportsbook.

PGA Championship Prop Picks


Top Scotsman: Robert MacIntyre –130

Robert MacIntyre-130
Russell Knox+100

Odds as of May 17 at Sportsbook

This is a two-man race between MacIntyre and Russell Knox and the big lefty will be our choice. The 25-year-old has been perfect in his major championship career as he is 8-for-8 making his way through to the weekend.

I expect this trend to continue as he arrives off a strong ball-striking performance at the British Masters on the DP World Tour.

This should allow MacIntyre to thrive at Southern Hills as he has often found his touch on difficult, sloped greens that players will face this week. Knox, on the other hand, tends to struggle on the greens no matter the level of difficulty.

Typically a strong ball-striker, this skill set has abandoned him in recent weeks as he missed the cut at the Mexico Open in early May. His major championship record is extremely poor, missing more than 50 percent of cuts and failing to register a top-10 finish.

Top Korean: Si Woo Kim +175

Si Woo Kim+175
Kyoung-Hoon Lee+185
Joohyung Kim+350
Bio Kim+600
Y.E. Yang+1600

Odds as of May 17 at Sportsbook

AT&T Byron Nelson Sportsbook K.H. Lee is featured in this group but it is Si Woo Kim who has captured my attention. Before his missed cut last week at TPC Craig Ranch, Kim was quietly becoming one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour as he had missed only one cut in the 2021-22 season.

A fantastic driver of the golf ball, Kim’s iron began to turn a corner before last week’s performance in Texas. I would expect him to return to that level of competence as he has shown the propensity to compete in big-time events in the past whether the Players Championship, Masters or PGA Championship.

The same cannot be said for his counterparts, and outside of Lee, the competition is lacking. Joohyung Kim may threaten but Bio Kim and Y.E. Yang will most likely struggle so I will happily take Si Woo Kim at this price in what I expect to be closer to a 3-ball for the 2022 PGA Championship.

Top Englishman: Matt Fitzpatrick +275

If you told me three years ago Matt Fitzpatrick would be the best English golfer in the world, I would have called you crazy. With the likes of Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton competing on the PGA Tour on a regular basis in 2019, Fitzpatrick was well behind his counterparts.


That is no longer the case as the Northwestern alum has become one of the best players in the world. Adding distance to his game, Fitzpatrick has experienced an extremely solid 2022 season featuring a runner-up performance in his last start at the Wells Fargo Championship.

His game is built for difficult conditions as he rarely makes mistakes and is as steady as they come. Fleetwood, Hatton, Westwood and others are more volatile and that should spell trouble at Southern Hills.

Fitzpatrick is the clear class of English golf and the pricing has yet to catch up to this sentiment – this makes for my favorite prop bet for the 2022 PGA Championship.

Top Scandinavian: Alex Noren +300

Viktor Hovland-130
Alex Noren+300
Henrik Stenson+500
Nicolai Hojgaard+500

Odds as of May 17 at Sportsbook

Viktor Hovland is the heavy favorite in this market but it is another former Oklahoma State Cowboy who has grabbed my attention. Hovland is by far the best Scandinavian player in the world but I am not so sure of his statistical fit at Southern Hills.

This is a course where greens will be missed and players will have to rely on their short game on numerous instances. Hovland is dead last on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green and that may very well lead to a short week in Oklahoma.

If the case, Noren is my favorite selection to best him as he is in the midst of a fantastic season. Finding the top 15 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, this became his fifth top-20 finish of 2022 and if he is able to repeat such a finish, he should be able to come through for us at the 2022 PGA Championship.

To Win (3 Chances): Scottie Scheffler/Collin Morikawa/Hideki Matsuyama +550

To Win The PGA Championship 3 Chances Odds

Odds as of May 17 at Sportsbook

This is a fun option that will give us three opportunities for a winning selection. With Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa and Hideki Matsuyama having combined for four major championships including the 2020 PGA Championship and the last two Masters, I would be shocked if at least one of these players is not in contention come the back nine on Sunday.

If so, they have all proven to have the Sportsbook and gumption to take down a major title. They are all elite drivers of the golf ball and precise iron players, which will be key at Southern Hills.

Whoever has the hottest putter of the trio will likely perform the best not only within the group but among the entire 2022 PGA Championship field.
