PGA Championship: Start date, how to watch, latest odds & more

The second Major of the year is the PGA Championship which in 2024 will take place at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky with play starting on Thursday 16th May.

Brooks Koepka won the last PGA Championship when he secured his fifth Major at Oak Hill Country Club in New York. 

The American posted a two-shot success over Norway’s Viktor Hovland and former Masters champion Scottie Scheffler. 

Koepka is 12/1 to win the event for the second year in a row, but he will be up against the world's best players who are all trying to get their hands on one of the most coveted trophies in golf.

When is the 2024 PGA Championship?

The PGA Championship was traditionally the final Major to be held each year until 2019, when it was moved from its usual August slot to May. 

That means the event is now the second Major to be staged, coming a month after the Masters, with the US Open and Open Championship following in June and July respectively. 

The 2024 PGA Championship will be held between 16th-19th May.

Where is the 2024 PGA Championship being held?

The 2024 PGA Championship will be staged at Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, Kentucky. The venue was opened in 1986 and this will be the fourth time that the PGA CHampionship will take place there. 

Mark Brooks beat Kenny Perry in a playoff in 1996 and Tiger Woods also needed extra holes to see off Bob May four years later. 

Rory McIlroy then won there in 2014, beating Phil Mickelson by a shot, and it was also the venue when the USA beat Europe 16.5-11.5 in the 2008 Ryder Cup. 

Senior PGA Championships have also been won there by Hale Irwin and Tom Watson.

Can I watch the 2024 PGA Championship?

All the action can be followed on the bet365 Live Golf Tracker and on Sky Sports' dedicated golf channel, Sky Sports Golf.

How many times has the PGA Championship taken place?

There have been 105 PGA Championships to date, with Englishman Jim Barnes winning the first in 1916.

Who has won the PGA Championship on the most occasions?

Home golfers dominate the history of the PGA Championship, claiming 86 wins, with Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus boasting the most successes with five apiece. 

Tiger Woods is next on the list with four, but we will have to wait and see whether the 15-time Major winner will be fit enough to play after his well-documented injury problems. 

Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka are the other multiple winners likely to tee up at this year's event, with Koepka having won his third PGA Championship in 2023.

Who is the favourite for the PGA Championship?

The early betting for the 2024 PGA Championship is headed by Spain’s Jon Rahm and America’s Scottie Scheffler. 

Rahm claimed his second Major at Augusta when he won the Masters in April 2023, which he was able to place on his mantelpiece alongside the 2021 US Open. 

His best performance in the PGA Championship came in 2018, when he tied for fourth three shots behind Brooks Koepka but his recent performances in the tournament have been disappointing as he has finished 48th and 50th in the last two years. 

Scheffler will be aiming to go one better than he did in 2023 when he finished second behind Koepka. 

He was also one of five players tied for fourth in 2020 when Collin Morikawa triumphed at Harding Park in San Francisco and the Texan is always confident in elite company, after winning his first Major at the 2022 Masters. 

Both players are available at 8/1 and Rory McIlroy is not far behind at 10/1. The Northern Irishman is a course winner, having triumphed at Valhalla in 2014 when he beat Phil Mickelson by a shot. 

That was the most recent of his four Major triumphs but he has finished eighth and seventh in the last two years and is regularly in the mix on big Sundays. It will also be impossible to ignore Brooks Koepka, who is 12/1

His Oak Hill triumph was his third in this tournament and he was also second alongside Louis Oosthuizen in 2021 at Kiawah Island when Phil Mickelson became the oldest Major winner in the game’s history.
