Cameron Young (+2500)
At +2500, Young, 26, is in just his second year with the PGA Tour. He’s played in 40 events, and while he has no wins, he’s finished in the top 10 ten times and has made the cut in 30 appearances.
In addition to the 10 top 10 finishes, Young has also been runner-up six times and finished inside the top 5 eight times.
Young is also a Scarborough, New York native, so being in his backyard is something for him to look forward to.
In terms of his performance on the green, Young is an excellent driver, ranking third in average driving distance at 318.2 yards. However, he had 88 drives, which is more than the first or second-place holder.
That could come in handy on the back nine, especially with Hole 13 having over 600 yards.
A younger player, Young is on the verge of taking home a win.
Rory McIlroy (+1200)
Getting Rory here in the four figures seems like a solid bet. No, he didn’t have a fantastic Master’s performance, but like Young, he’s an excellent driver, ranking first on the TOUR at nearly 330 yards. He’s had 40 fewer drives than Young, but again, that type of driving power will help here.
McIlroy is always a good bet, and at +1200 and his ability to drive the ball, we won’t turn it down.
Patrick Cantlay (+2000)
After finishing inside the top 15 at the Master’s, Cantlay continued to show why we should keep giving him chances in tournaments.
Winning over $37 million in prize money since joining the Tour in 2014, Cantlay has eight wins and 50 top-10 finishes. He’s made the cut in 129 of 153 events, so that emphasizes his top 10 finishes even more.
The knock on Cantlay was his ability in inclement weather, which is certainly possible for New York, but he battled through it at The Masters.
His putting will always make him a contender, and the PGA Championship is no exception.
Jon Rahm (+750)
Yes, Rahm is going to be chalk for the foreseeable future, but hey, we wager to win and make money, right?
Rahm is simply an undeniably good golfer. There’s not really anything he can’t do. He putts and drives extraordinarily well, and he has a history of winning at golf courses similar to Oak Hill Country Club.
Coming off a win at Augusta, why not here, too? Sometimes you just have to ride the chalk, especially with a player like Rahm, who’s borderline unstoppable.
