Rory McIlroy +800
Favored by the best online sportsbooks, the World No. 1 is a two-time PGA championship winner. In fact, he had the greatest winning margin in the stroke play era; 8 strokes in 2012. His second win took place in 2014. On the other hand, he has not finished within the top 20 since 2015. Wee Mac has placed in the top 5 in each of the four events in which he has participated this year. As well as in his last six straight outings. Not counting the Players Championship, which was canceled McIlroy had a 72 in the opening round of that competition. In McIlroy’s single start as a pro at TPC Harding Park, he won the 2015 WGC-Match Play title. On that occasion, he defeated Gary Woodland 4 and 2 in the final match.
Brooks Koepka +1400
Ranked No. 3 in the world, Koepka is the reigning and defending PGA champion. In spite of which the best offshore sportsbooks for US players don’t quite see him winning the same major title thrice in a row. A feat lastly achieved by Australian Peter Thomson at the 1954-56 British Opens. As a matter of fact, Koepka has been rather far from the podium as of late. His most recent Tour win was the 2019 WGC – FedEx St Jude Invitational. He has finished no higher than 17, missed the cut, or withdrawn in his last seven starts.
Dustin Johnson +1400
DJ was runner-up to Koepka last year – the closest he has been to winning the tournament. Additionally, he tied for 10th, 5th, 8th, and 7th in 2009, 2010, 2013, and 2015 respectively. Johnson pretty much floundered following that loss to Koepka. However, two top 10 and one top 3 finished in five 2020 outings suggest he may be finding his form just in time. DJ underwent knee surgery in the fall, and has been struggling with his short game. He ranks 162nd in strokes gained/around the green and 106th in strokes gained/putting. A video of Johnson rolling some putts with the Golf Sply Perfect Practice putting mat has this dude thinking DJ might reemerge as the best putter in the Tour. Users of the best offshore sportsbooks for US players should take that with a grain of salt, though.
Jon Rahm +1400
Rahm improved greatly from the 2017 PGA championship to the 2018 edition. He finished the former T58 and the latter T4. He then missed the cut last year, so he’s due for another great performance, right? Right? Rahm has won two, runnered-up another two, placed third in one more of his last eight tournaments. According to CBS Sports.com, “Rahm is one of just a handful of professional golfers who have the ability to become the No. 1 player in the world.” Whether the 2020 PGA Championship will be a stepping stone remains to be seen.
