The PGA Championship will be played in San Francisco at TPC Harding Park Aug. 6-9, and my advice will detail players familiar with winning on this same course. One cool thing is we may get some golf played later in the day since this is in the Pacific Time Zone.
2020 PGA Championship Betting Outlook
Brooks Koepka is the returning champ after consecutive wins in this major. The PGA Championship has been won by Americans every year since 2015. Jason Day was the last winner that wasn’t a Gringo.
For your bonus pick, Day has three top-10 finishes coming into this week, and he is +3000 to win it in the BetUS.com sportsbook.
The picks are in:
Rory McIlroy +1100
Do not discount McIlroy because he doesn’t have a Top 10 since we became forced hermits. There are a couple of things to keep in mind: In the PGA Tour season statistics, the Northern Ireland native is in the Top Five for scoring average, driving distance and strokes gained tee to green.
The last time a PGA Tour event was played at TPC Harding Park was when Rory won the WGC Match Play here in 2015, so he likes the course. He also has won two PGA Championships. McIlroy will win soon and it could be this week.
Another two-time PGA Championship winner is Koepka, who is seeking a three-peat. He finished in a tie for second in last week’s WGC event and could have whipped Justin Pink Pants if he didn’t launch his drive left and go swimming on the 18th hole.
Koepka led the field in Greens in Regulation at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Better than that, he is not afraid to tell you how good he is. I love the attitude he sprays in that interview room.
Tiger Woods +2500
Inside info says Tiger Woods was practicing on this course Sunday and played 18 holes. Woods is trying for his fifth PGA Championship. He is rested and if his back holds up you can expect a top-10 finish. He won here at the WGC event at TPC Harding Park in 2005 and crushed it playing the Presidents Cup in 2009 while going 5-0-0 in his matches. Woods is undoubtedly one of the better options ahead of the 2020 PGA Championship.
Daniel Berger +3500
I can’t believe Daniel Berger has odds that are this high. This future major winner is on a roll, and if he can get it together starting early, he should have a shot on Sunday to make this his first of multiple majors. You heard it here – multiple.
Berger is coming off a tie for second place at TPC Southwind last week. It wasn’t long ago Berger won the Charles Schwab Challenge. He has been consistent with six Top 10 finishes out of 13 events in 2020. In the four events played during the COVID-19th hole swing, he has a win, a second, and a third, so this is my big play at 35-1.
