Rory McIlroy, the former world number 1, arrives at Valhalla in exceptional form, following impressive back-to-back victories at the Zurich Classic alongside Shane Lowry and the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. The Northern Irishman is aiming to translate his recent success into a major win, a feat he has not achieved in a decade. McIlroy is among the top contenders for the PGA Championship title, with odds of 7/1.

As the Official Betting Partner of the PGA Tour in the UK, Ireland, Canada, and Australia, our Trading Team has been busy setting odds and offers for this star-studded tournament.

Despite a three-week break from competitive golf, Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler enters the PGA Championship as the favorite, with odds of 4/1. His time off allowed him to welcome his first child, but his impressive form this year keeps him at the top of the rankings.

Tiger Woods is confident that Scheffler will perform well in his return, stating, “If he putts great, he blows away fields. If he has a bad putting week, he contends.” High praise indeed.

Although Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler are among the favorites, bet365 customers have shown the most support for 2023 champion Brooks Koepka, with 14.6% of outright bets placed on him at odds of 14/1. Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy follow closely behind at 13.8% and 13.0% of outright bets, respectively.

If Scheffler wins in Kentucky, it will solidify his position as the favorite for the remaining Majors of the year. It would also put him halfway to a Grand Slam of Golf Majors in a calendar year, a record-breaking feat in the Masters era. Scheffler is priced at 22/1 to win all four majors this year.

McIlroy, at 7/1, is aiming to continue his winning streak at Valhalla, where he last won a Major ten years ago in this very competition. The course has since been extended by 150 yards, now sitting at over 7600 yards. These changes should play to McIlroy’s strengths, as he is consistently one of the longest hitters off the tee on tour.

No matter who you’re backing, bet365 offers multiple Markets, Specials, and Bet Boosts across the Tournament.
