2014 PGA Championship Odds

2014 PGA Championship Odds

The PGA Championship, the last golf major of 2014, begins on August 7 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. Following his British Open and Bridgestone Invitational wins, Rory McIlroy is now the +550 favorite to take home the PGA Champshionship, a major that he won back in 2012. Tiger Woods (+1000) was listed right behind him despite his poor form and 69th place finish last week at Royal Liverpool, but he’s likely to miss the last major with a lower back injury. The table below shows the 2014 PGA Championship odds for each golfer (via Bovada):
