PGA Golf excitement has really heated up this week as we head into the PGA Championships this Thursday at Whistling Straights. Jordan Spieth currently leads all golfers as the favorite to win this event and more money has been wagered on Spieth going into this one than any other golfer according to sportsbook reports. Another big story taking place is the return of Rory McIlroy after a soccer injury forced him to withdraw from playing the British Open and Bridgestone events. Some speculate he may still not tee off in this one but he does have a big motivating factor to play. Spieth has a shot to overtake him to be the number one golfer in the world depending on the result of this event. Currently betting fans are not backing Rory in this one despite him being the number two favorite to win.
Whistling Straights is a long course and will be suitable for guys who can hit long off the tee like McIlroy, Watson, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. Watson has been playing great lately finishing 2nd last week but he hasn't been playing his best golf in the majors this year. Dustin Johnson has been in pretty good form and this particular course still haunts him after unknowingly being penalized a stroke here on the last hole which cost him the championship. Its clear he can play to win at this course, and you can bet he won't make the same mistake twice. Below are the latest odds for the top 30 golfers in this event from Bet365 Sportsbook.
