US PGA Championship
US PGA Championship Odds
Get in on the golf betting action as an illustrious field of world class golfers tee up to compete in the second major of the golf calendar. Last year saw Brooks Koepka lead the PGA championship by shooting a fantastic round of 63 by one shot, after one round. Koepka managed to edge past Adam Scott and Tiger Woods who was also favored but looked a bit short in the field at some points. Woods is sure to remain a favorite after winning his 15th Major victory before making the US golf championship last year. Other popular bets will be on star players Dustin Johnson and Rory Mcllroy who won the championship twice.
Koepka successfully retained his title and lifted the Wanamaker Trophy again. In total, the talented player has won three of the last eight Majors and he will be looking to defend his title again this summer. Will he be the first player to break Walter Hagen’s record of winning four US golf championships in a row? One of the higher favorites, Justin Thomas, withdrew from playing at the Bethpage Black after a nagging wrist injury.
The 2020 series is rescheduled to take place on August 3-9 at TPC Harding Park. This will be the first major championship to be held at the par-72 park and the first major golf championship to be hosted in San Francisco. There are currently 20 places in a 156-man field reserved for professional golfers. During the tournament, no fans will be allowed in the property.

How to bet on the US PGA championship
You can bet on the US major golf tournament at sportsbook casinos. All you need to do is register with BetMGM and fill in the online form. You will have access to a wide range of golf betting markets.
The most common market in the US golf championship is the tournament winner where you simply bet on which player you think will win the tournament. Bettors will also place odds on which player will finish Top 5, Top 10 or even Top 20. In addition to player markets, there are also odds that relate to the golf tournament in general like betting on whether a playoff will be needed to separate multiple winners, the number of strokes the tournament winner will win, and if a hole-in-one will occur.
How does an each-way bet work in golf?
An each-way bet is a bet that allows the bettor to wager not only on the winner of the tournament but also inside a certain threshold. This type of bet is also known as a top-five bet and pays if the golfer finishes in the top five. If the golfer finishes on anything but the first position, the payout will be ¼ of the original odds. Each-way bets are also popular in horse racing and other sports, and they usually cost double the original stake.
