PGA Championship 2020 odds: The chances of a Brooks Koepka three-peat are shockingly strong, according to oddsmakers

News

Slightly farther down the odds board at 33-1 sits Tiger Woods, coming off a pedestrian T-40 at the Memorial in his only start since February. His course history is second to none, with a playoff win over John Daly here at the 2005 WGC-American Express and a 5-0-0 record in the 2009 Presidents Cup, which included an incredibly iconic club twirl.

Rory McIlroy (14-1) also boasts strong course history, having won the 2015 WGC-Match Play the last time TPC Harding Park hosted the best players in the world. Rory will be gunning for his fifth major and attempting to break a six-year major drought. After just one week at the top, Jon Rahm (14-1) will be looking to take back the World No. 1 ranking, which JT retook with his win last week. And Jordan Spieth (45-1) gets his fourth crack at the Career Grand Slam, while also looking to snap a winning drought that dates back to his last major, the 2017 Open Championship.

The layout is a 7,234-yard par 70 with two par 5s playing more than 560 yards (it played as a par 71 for the ’15 WGC-Match Play). Though there are seven par 4s that could play as long as 460 yards, plus the brutal par-3 eighth hole that can tip out at 251 yards, there are also two potentially drivable par 4s (the seventh and 16th holes). Typical of any major championship set up, the rough should be long, and the course will play firm and fast with winds coming off Lake Merced. Expect there to be a major premium on both driving distance and accuracy, which is certainly reflected on the odds board below.

Here’s the full list of odds for the 2020 PGA Championship.
