Scottie Scheffler Is the New Favorite to Win the PGA Championship

There is a new favorite to win the PGA Championship next month. Jon Rahm was the favorite for most of the year, but it’s now considered Scottie Scheffler’s tournament in the eyes of the oddsmakers. Scheffler moved from 18-1 to 12-1 to win the PGA Championship after his win at the Masters, and his odds have since dropped to 10-1.

Although Scottie Scheffler finished T18 at the Zurich Championship, he was paired with the 86th ranked golfer in the world in Ryan Palmer. Scheffler and Palmer had an up-and-down tournament, combining to shoot 64 on Thursday and 63 on Saturday, but they finished north of 70 on Friday and Sunday.

Scheffler is on an incredible run. He is now the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world and leads the FedEx Cup rankings. Scheffler fourth at Mayakoba in November and then scored T2 finishes at the Houston Open and the Hero World Challenge. His game went to another level two months ago, as he won the WM Phoenix Open, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and the WGC Match Play Championship before claiming his first major at Augusta.

Jon Rahm has fallen behind Scheffler after losing the No. 1 ranking to him after the Masters. Rahm has a T2 and T3 finish this season, but he didn’t place T8 in any other event. He has also struggled at the most difficult courses with a T55 finish at TPC Sawgrass after a final round 77, and a T27 finish at the Masters. That has Rahm looking to regain his form at the Mexico Open this weekend.

The resurgence of Rory McIlroy has led to his PGA Championship odds falling too. McIlroy is now tied with Rahm as the second favorite after finishing runner-up at the Masters thanks to a 64 on Sunday. However, that might be a little hasty as McIlroy doesn’t have another finish better than T10 since October.
