The 2019 PGA Championship gets underway from Bethpage Black on Thursday, and the second major of the year could be a wide-open affair. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook currently lists eight golfers at 20-1 or less to win the PGA Championship after Justin Thomas withdrew. With such a wide-open field set to tee off at the PGA Championship, you'll want to hear what our proprietary computer model has to say.
This model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has nailed four majors entering the weekend, including Patrick Reed's groundbreaking win last year at the Masters. It also called Tiger Woods' deep run in last year's PGA Championship despite being a 25-1 long shot.
The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 season. It was high on champion Rory McIlroy at the Players Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start. It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka's (9-1) victory at the CJ Cup. Additionally, it correctly called Bryson DeChambeau's (9-1) seven-shot victory at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Anyone who has followed the model is WAY up.
Now, it has simulated the 2019 PGA Championship and there are some HUGE surprises.
We can tell you that Tiger Woods, a four-time champion, reigning Masters champ, and the top Vegas favorite, doesn't even crack the top five. The model also has strong opinions on defending champion Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world. Even better, the model is also projecting four golfers with 2019 PGA Championship odds of 25-1 or longer will make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it BIG.
So who wins the 2019 PGA Championship? Where do Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson finish? And which HUGE long shots make a serious run at the title? ...
