Some of the best golfers on the PGA Tour are going to be in action this week in Akron, OH for the 13th annual WGC-PGA Championship. Here are our PGA golf picks to click on the odds to win the PGA Championship!
PGA Championship Preview
Dates: Thursday, August 11th – Sunday, August 14th
Location: Highlands Course, Atlanta Athletic Club, Johns Creek, GA
Tiger Woods (+2500) and Phil Mickelson (+2500) at SportBet.com: Last week, we said that we were going to go against both Tiger and Phil, and this week is no exception. Sure, Mickelson played slightly better golf last week at the Bridgestone Invitational, and everyone is going to remember that run that he put on at the British Open in the final round before falling apart in the final few holes. There’s no doubt that there are a lot of special moments in both of these golfers. Unfortunately, their “names” are carrying them to this point, and there is just no way that we can back either one in a spot like this against a very, very tough field. We’d be surprised just to see Woods make the cut, and we don’t foresee a Top 20 finish coming for Lefty either.
Adam Scott (+2300) at SportBet.com: Talk about poetic justice! Wouldn’t it be something if for a second straight week, Caddy Stevie Williams was able to say that he caddied for the winning golfer? Adam Scott has definitely been playing better golf, and it is unfortunate for us that he won last week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational, because his PGA Championship betting lines came tumbling down after that event. However, we know with Scott’s consistent play and the help of a proven winner of a caddy that this golfer has a tremendous chance ot be able to claim glory at a major championship.
Nick Watney (+3500) at SportBet.com: Watney has sort of been the pick du jour over these last few majors to come up big, but all of a sudden, it is like everyone has forgotten about him. This is still one of the up and coming golfers on the PGA Tour, just like Rory McIlroy. In fact, we’d put Watney’s chances of winning this tournament right there with that of the Northern Ireland native. Don’t be surprised if Watney shoots some consistent scores over the first three days of this tournament, and without making any noise whatsoever, finds himself near the top of the leaderboard going onto the back nine on Sunday.
Ricky Barnes (+20000) at SportBet.com: This is the type of tournament where you take a few long shots and hope that it all works out for you. In the case of Barnes, there has to be at least a 1 in 200 chance that he wins this tournament. This is a man who finished fourth at both the Honda Classic and The Heritage this year, and we know that he has the goods to be able to find his way to the winner’s circle. Sure, there’s a good chance that he ends up missing out on the cut, but at this price, we’ve got to take a stab on Barnes to pull off the biggest weekend of his life.
