PGA Championship History

 

PGA Championship Betting History

The PGA Championship is the second major held each season in golf. Similar to the U.S. Open and British Open, the PGA Championship rotates courses every year.

In 2022, the PGA Championship will be played at Southern Hills Country Club from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Major Betting Returns

Betting on the PGA Championship has produced some healthy returns.

Phil Mickelson captured his sixth major at the 2021 PGA Championship and it was by far the most suprising major victory of his career.

The 50-year-old finished with a score of 6-under (282) and cashed tickets as high as 280/1 odds to take the major at Kiawah Island Golf Resort's Ocean Course from Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

While Lefty's win was eye opening, long shot tickets at the PGA have been very common over the last six years.

Collin Morikawa connected at 30/1 odds in 2020 and before him was the Koepka sweep in 2018 and 2019, which brought back 18/1 and 10/1 returns respectively.
