2024 PGA Championship: Picks, Predictions and Odds

The world’s top golfers head to Kentucky this week for the second major of the year, with Valhalla Golf Club the venue for the PGA Championship.

After an impressive victory at the Masters, it’s no surprise to see Scottie Scheffler at the head of the betting, with the world number one +400 to collect a third major title.

The last eight champions have been from the USA and although many will expect another home success in 2024, that run could come to an end.

2024 PGA Championship betting picks and predictions

Rory McIlroy to win and each way +700

It’s been 10 years since the last tournament at Valhalla and not many of the players who challenged that year will be in the field this week.

The player who lifted the Wanamaker Trophy that week was Rory McIlroy and the Northern Irishman heads into the 2024 event full of confidence.

McIlroy has won the last two tournaments he has played in – claiming the Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside Shane Lowry, before success in the Wells Fargo Championship.

The 35-year-old romped to victory at Quail Hollow, winning by five shots after carding a final round 65.

As well as the current run of form, McIlroy will also have happy memories of this week’s venue after winning the last of his four Majors at the Kentucky course.

When beating Phil Mickelson by just a shot in 2014, many expected the European star to go from strength-to-strength and dominate the sport, but that hasn’t worked out.

Many feel McIlroy is in the best place mentally for the last decade, and going back to Valhalla will surely aid his chances of adding a fifth Major to his résumé.

Wyndham Clark to win and each way +3500

A lot of the US media attention will be on Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka heading into the tournament and that may help the others looking to win the year’s second Major.

Scheffler will play at Valhalla after his wife gave birth to their first child, so he would be forgiven if his focus is not totally there.

One player who has enjoyed recent Major success who could benefit from less scrutiny, is Wyndham Clark.

The man from Colorado is the current US Open champion but will admit that his record in the Majors needs to improve.

This will be Clark’s fourth PGA Championship and he has missed the cut on two of those previous appearances, before failing to make the weekend at this year’s Masters.

Aside from the Augusta frustration, the 30-year-old has enjoyed a successful season to date with one PGA Tour title – the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am – and three other top-five finishes.

One of those was a T2 at the Players Championship and a final round 65 at the recent RBC Heritage secured him a T3 finish at Hilton Head Island.

Clark is third in the PGA Tour driving stats and fourth in Putting Average, so if everything comes together, he is certainly capable of adding a second Major title to his collection this week.

Jason Day Top 10 Finish +500

Another player who has good memories of Valhalla is Jason Day, who’s record in the PGA Championship makes impressive reading.

The Australian finished T15 at this course back in 2014 and it could have been even better, but for a final round 75.

Day won the PGA Championship a year later and aside from the victory at Whistling Straits, he has secured five top-ten finishes in this Major.

The signs have been there this year to suggest the 36-year-old is getting closer to the form he was in a decade ago – highlighted by his T4 finish at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Day has missed just one cut in his last nine tournaments and a T30 finish at the Masters suggests he can challenge again for another Major title.

2024 PGA Championship outright odds

World number one Scheffler goes into the tournament at +400 to lift the Wanamaker Trophy, as he seeks to win his first Major outside of the Masters.

The man from New Jersey finished T2 in the 2023 PGA Championship, finishing two shots behind the eventual winner – Brooks Koepka.

The defending champion is +1400 to claim a sixth Major and fourth PGA Championship, after previous wins in 2018, 2019 and 2023.

Koepka heads to Valhalla having won the latest LIV Golf event, after success in Singapore earlier this month.

Xander Schauffele is one of those golfers in the field who is still seeking his first Major title and his form this season suggests that first success might not be too far away.

A second-place finish at the Wells Fargo Championship was his eighth top-10 finish of 2024 and he is available at +1600 to win at Valhalla.
