Since the PGA Championship shifted its dates from August to May prior to the 2019 tournament, golf fans have enjoyed nothing but terrific finishes for the sport's now-second major. Last year, for example, Justin Thomas erased a seven-stroke deficit on the final day at Southern Hills to force a playoff – a three-hole battle in which he defeated Will Zalatoris. We should expect something similar this week at Oak Hill Country Club, which should make the PGA Championship betting promos and bonuses below particularly intriguing.
Oak Hill, a classic Donald Ross course tucked away in Pittsford, NY, is hosting the PGA Championship for the fourth time. Jack Nicklaus crushed the field by 7 strokes in 1980, Shaun Micheel shocked the world in 2003 with his first (and only) PGA Tour win and Jason Dufner edged Jim Furyk by 2 strokes to take the 2013 PGA Championship.
Dufner has withdrawn from this week's field – as has the injured (and ninth-ranked) Zalatoris along with such big names as Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia – yet this PGA Championship could wind up with the best field of any tournament this year.
The best PGA Championship betting sites have Scottie Scheffler and 2023 Masters champ Jon Rahm as the favorites to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday night, but there are several golfers currently playing well enough to claim this major. Eric Cole, a 34-year-old PGA Tour rookie, led the late-starting first round which was eventually suspended because of darkness and resumed Friday morning. Overnight temperatures dipped into the 30s resulting in a frost delay on Thursday that lasted nearly two hours.
