It’s that time of year again. The last major championship of the PGA Tour season begins on August 7th at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. The last time the PGA Championship was held here in 2000, Tiger Woods beat Bob May in a playoff to win his second straight PGA Championship. But the times have changed. Tiger Woods is still looking for his first major championship win since the 2008 U.S. Open and a young Rory McIlroy is dominating the game after back-to-back victories and reclaiming the top spot in the official world golf rankings.
In the most updated odds to win, there is little surprise that McIlroy is the favorite following his dominant performance at the 2014 Open Championship. With Tiger Woods coming off of his worst 72-hole score at a major and withdrawing in the final round at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational due to re-injuring his lower back, he is quickly dropping off in the odds (and it’s questionable if he will even play). See the list of the 2014 PGA Championship odds below, courtesy of Golfodds.com. Do you think McIlroy will win two majors in a row and capture his second PGA Championship?
