2024 PGA Championship Odds: How will Canadians fare at Valhalla Golf Club?

The 106th edition of the PGA Championship takes place at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky this week and there are six players representing Canada in the second Major of the season.

Mike Weir's 2003 Masters success remains the only time a Canadian player has landed one of the 'big four' tournaments, but what are the chances of another player from the Great White North adding their name to that elite list?

World number one Scottie Scheffler is the +400 favorite to claim the spoils, a month on from landing his second Masters, while Rory McIlroy is +650 to repeat his 2014 PGA Championship success at this course.

Ahead of Thursday's opening round, we have taken a look at all six Canadian players and analyzed their chances of coming out on top in Kentucky.

Nick Taylor

  • Outright odds +22500
  • Top 5 odds +4000
  • Top 10 odds +1600
  • Top 20 odds +650

The highest-ranked Canadian in the field at 28th, Nick Taylor will be making his fourth PGA Championship appearance, having gone T68th in 2015 before missing the cut in both 2020 and 2023.

He landed his fourth title on the US circuit in February at the Phoenix Open, beating Charley Hoffman in a playoff, but has failed to kick on and has posted just one top 10 since, that coming in the Zurich Classic's pairs event.

It would be a surprise to see Taylor in the mix and there are others in the Canadian six that are more appealing.

Corey Conners

  • Outright odds +8000
  • Top 5 odds +1600
  • Top 10 odds +750
  • Top 20 odds +300
  • To make cut -200

World No. 49 Corey Conners will be making his sixth PGA Championship appearance this week. His best finish at the tournament was T12 last year, but he has also failed to spark into life this season.

The 32-year-old has played 12 times this year but he is yet to post a top-10 result and his poor short game is a worry, as he is losing shots against the field in putting, scrambling and sand saves.

Conners hasn't missed a cut since the 2023 US Open, though, and the -200 on him to make the cut looks like the best play for him.

Adam Hadwin

  • Outright odds +22500
  • Top 5 odds +4000
  • Top 10 odds +1600
  • Top 20 odds +650
  • To make cut -120

Ranked 51st in the world, Adam Hadwin posted some solid results in the first few months of the season, notching top-fives at the Genesis Invitational and Valspar Championship.

However, the 36-year-old has struggled in his last three outings, going T53, T42 and T52, and it is hard to make a case for him going into his eighth PGA Championship appearance given his best result in this Major was a T29 in 2011.

Hadwin has made the cut in five straight Majors, last failing to play on the weekend at the 2021 Open, and the -120 available for him to end up the right side of the mark could be worth considering.

Taylor Pendrith

  • Outright odds +14000
  • Top 5 odds +2500
  • Top 10 odds +1200
  • Top 20 odds +450
  • To make cut -138

Sitting a career-high 54th in the world rankings, Taylor Pendrith looks a lively each-way contender this week and could be worth a punt at +14000 in the outright market.

The 32-year-old was T29 on his PGA Championship debut last year and he arrives at the 2024 edition a PGA Tour winner, following his success at this month's Byron Nelson tournament.

Pendrith kept the momentum going in his next outing, ending up T10 at the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday, and there is every chance he could be in the mix.

Mackenzie Hughes

  • Outright odds +17500
  • Top 5 odds +3000
  • Top 10 odds +1200
  • Top 20 odds +500
  • To make cut -138

Mackenzie Hughes has struggled in his five PGA Championship appearances, missing the cut on four occasions, but he arrives at Valhalla Golf Club full of confidence after a T6 finish at the Wells Fargo.

While the world number 63 has impressed on the greens this season, he ranks poorly in both strokes gained off-the-tee and on approach, and that could hurt his chances.

The +100 odds on two-time PGA Tour winner Hughes not to make the cut appeals here.

Adam Svensson

  • Outright odds +40000
  • Top 5 odds +5500
  • Top 10 odds +2000
  • Top 20 odds +800

Adam Svensson broke his PGA Tour duck at the 2022 RSM Classic, finishing two strokes clear of Brian Harman, Callum Tarren and Sahith Theegala, but he has failed to kick on since.

This season has been a struggle for the 30-year-old, whose last eight appearances have seen him miss three cuts in a row before going T49, T57, T51, T44 and T47, and he has limited Major experience with this being just his fourth crack at one of the 'big four'.

A tie for 10th at the Genesis Invitational this year showcased the talent Svensson possesses and while a repeat of that result this week might be out of reach, a top 20 at +800 could be of interest.
