USPGA Championship betting tips: The View from the Bookmakers' Trading Room

We gave Hideki Matsuyama a favourable mention prior to last week’s WGC success at Firestone and the World number 3 has understandably been popular heading into the fourth and final major of the golfing calendar. Matsuyama produced the greatest round of ball-striking of his career on Sunday, shooting 61 in the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational, and is now 11/1 from 18s with BetVictor for US PGA Championship success at Quail Hollow.

He must go well again but is perhaps now too short in a market dominated by golf’s big players at the front end of the market. Rory McIlroy is BetVictor’s worst result having been laid at fancy prices and boasts a tremendous record around the course; winning the Wells Fargo Championship twice at Quail Hollow. His putting let him down in the final round last weekend, yet again, and he can not be backed at the price of 7/1.

Rory McIlory 7/1

Hideki Matsuyama 11/1 (From 18s)
Dustin Johnson 12/1
Rickie Fowler 16/1
Jon Rahm 25/1
Brooks Koepka 25/1 from 33s
Jason Day 25/1
Justin Rose 33/1
40/1 Bar
EW 1/5 1-2- 3-4- 5-6

With BetVictor paying six places, and up to ten places elsewhere, I’d throw a few darts at those bigger in the market with Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger both appealing at generally around the 45/1 and 60/1 mark. Thomas has been in sparkling form all season, winning three times at the beginning of the campaign, and shot a record-breaking 62 in the third round of the US Open at Erin Hills. He is one of the longest hitters on tour, 9th to be precise, finished with rounds of 69 and 67 to finish T28 at Firestone and is sure to be suited by the composition of Quail Hollow.

Daniel Berger may rank only 55 on Tour in terms off length off-the- tee but has put together a string of fine efforts and was somewhat unlucky to lose to Jordan Spieth in last month’s Travelers
Championship; with the Open Championship producing the most unlikely of birdies at the first extra hole. Despite being just 24 years old Berger is already a multiple winner on tour, going back-to- back
at the St Jude Classic, and should eventually join those sitting at golf’s top table.

At bigger prices, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Brendan Steel (150/1), Charles Howell III (200/1), and Sean O’Hair (250/1) perform better than their prices suggest, and it’s no surprise to see Dane Thorbjorn Olesen (150s from 250s) attract support after a fine season on both sides of the Atlantic.
