PGA Championship Betting Tips 2020

The first major of the season is finally here and we head to San Francisco for it. Harding Park Golf Club is the home for the PGA Championship and it looks set to be a fascinating contest.

Henry has picked out five selections against the field for this week’s event and you can see them all below.

 

PGA Championship Win Selections

My first selection is BROOKS KOEPKA 10/1 (SKY BET 1/5 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11).Koepka played great golf last week from tee to green and he looked close to being back to his elite level. He said that he found something earlier in the week and it was obvious early on in last weeks tournament as he opened with 4 birdies. He was very high in strokes gained tee to green throughout following on from a strong ball striking performance the previous Friday. If the putter can warm up a touch on these fast greens he’s bound to go very close. Last week was his strongest showing of his season and it should have him spot on for this bid at a third consecutive PGA Championship. We all know Brooks like to peak for the majors and it looks like it may well be the case again here. Koepka knows how to win and won’t be phased by contending for another major victory, the same can’t be said for some of the other market principles who have either never won majors or haven’t won one for a while, the exception being Justin Thomas. The long par 70 track won’t be an issue for Koepka and this weeks test is the type he continues to thrive in.

My second selection is XANDER SCHAUFFELE 18/1 (WILLIAM HILL 1/5 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). Xander has been ticking over nicely and he certainly caught the eye last week with a top 6 finish. He played very solid golf all week with the exception being an 8 on the Friday. The fact he managed to come 6th can be massively upgraded as TPC Southwind is a course he has never really done well on. A great ball striking Sunday that included no bogeys was the ideal preparation for him to make a bold bid this week. The course will suit him and I believe he is ready to make the step up from competing in majors to crossing the line and winning one.

 

Three Picks at Bigger Odds

Next up is WEBB SIMPSON 28/1 (WILLIAM HILL 1/5 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). Webb has been better than ever this season winning the RBC Heritage since lockdown. He was the US Open winner in 2012 on a course that was designed by the same designers as this weeks venue which has to be a positive as it should certainly suit his eye. He hits his hybrid clubs closer than most people hit their wedges and I’m sure he’ll be using them more often this week on this long layout at Harding Park GC. I think Simpson is overpriced this week as I expected him to be a few points shorter considering the form he’s shown of late and I’m happy to include him this week due to his current form and the course layout here. His confidence will be sky high too.

 

My next selection is CHEZ REAVIE 100/1 (WILLIAM HILL 1/5 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). Reavie hit the ball really well last week hitting plenty of fairways and plenty of greens on the way to a top 6 finish. He only made one bogey in the first 3 rounds there and although Sunday wasn’t as great he still grinded his way to a strong finish. Although Reavie isn’t long he is certainly one of the straightest on tour and hitting fairways will be key this week with the rough expected to be long. The forecast is for sun and no much rain so his ball should roll out well which will aid his distance issues. He played solid enough last year in this major finishing in the top 20 and I think he can improve on that performance here. With the 10 places available each way he has to be a play at a three figured price.

 

The final selection of the week is that man again HARRIS ENGLISH 100/1 (SKYBET 1/51,2,3,4,5,6,7,8.9,10,11). Harris has been a selection numerous times for the column recently and he has performed reasonable well a lot of the time. His ball striking statistics continue to impress as he can be compared closely to the world’s best. On a course where hitting greens in regulation is going to be a vital asset I can see his long game ability ensuring he isn’t too far away from the top of the leaderboard. I feel he will be suited to this type of test where pars wont be a bad score compared to the birdie feasts he has been playing in recently. Again, a three figured price with the prices available, he’s a must for me this week.
