  • The PGA Championship is May 18-21 from Oak Hill.
  • It is a very difficult golf course, so avoiding bogeys will be key.
  • Prop bets are a good alternative to outright winner bets.

It’s PGA Championship week, one of the more popular weeks in golf, and with it come plenty of golf betting opportunities.

While betting outright winners is always fun, prop bets provide a nice alternative.

Oak Hill is a very difficult course, with narrow fairways, thick rough, and quirky fast greens. The winning score isn’t expected to be double digits, so targeting players who avoid bogeys will be more vital than most weeks.

Below are my best prop bets for the PGA Championship.

PGA Championship 2023: Best Prop Bets 

Sungjae Im Top-10 Finish +275

Im hasn’t yet won on the PGA Tour this season, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t playing extremely well. In 13 starts, he has 10 finishes of 21st or better, including five top-10s. It is worth noting he went to Korea last week and won the Woori Financial Group Championship, so he comes to Oak Hill on top of his game.

Im’s solid all-around game will translate to Oak Hill, and he’ll have another solid week.

Tyrrell Hatton Top-20 Finish +138

The 31-year-old is one of the most intense players on the PGA Tour, and that gritty mindset should translate well to being able to grind out pars this week. Hatton is also playing well of late, posting four top-five finishes in his last eight starts.

Relating to the majors, he has eight top-20 finishes since 2016.

Tom Hoge Top-40 Finish +175

I continue to target Hoge each week because he continues to be undervalued. He’s 30th in the Official World Golf Rankings, so it feels wrong that he’s plus money to finish inside the top 40 this week.

Not to mention Hoge is coming off a T-9 finish in last year’s PGA Championship.
