Phil Mickelson is the defending champion after becoming the oldest player to win a major with a two-stroke victory over Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen.


We turn our sites to eight players we have our eyes on to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy in the 104th playing of the PGA Championship. Considered the strongest field of the four majors, the PGA Championship features a stellar list of the world’s best golfers.


Justin Thomas (+1200)


The 14-time PGA Tour winner has just one major victory to his name, the 2017 PGA Championship. Thomas missed the cut at last year’s tournament, but the 28-year-old has six top-10 finishes in 11 events this season. The numbers are there as well for Thomas, ranking third in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green and fourth in SG: Approach The Green.


Scottie Scheffler (+1200)


Scheffler should be on everyone’s watch list heading into the PGA Championship, and for a good reason. The world’s best golfer has been on a tear over the last six months, winning four times over his last six individual events, including the 2022 Masters. The 25-year-old has a T4 and T8 in two appearances at the PGA Championship.


Dustin Johnson (+1400)


D.J. has a pair of major victories to his name but is still without a PGA Championship title. Johnson finished runner-up in 2019 and 2020 before missing the cut last year. The 24-time PGA Tour winner has played just ten events this season, with a pair of top-10 finishes under his belt.


Collin Morikawa (+1400)


The elite ball-striker has all the tools to win the Wanamaker Trophy for the second time in three years. Morikawa captured his first major title in 2020 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. The 25-year-old followed up his title with a win at The Open in 2021 and currently sits as the no. 3 ranked player in the world.


Patrick Cantlay (+2000)


Cantlay is coming off a team victory with Xander Schauffele at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The 30-year-old has six top-10 finishes in ten events this season and ranks seventh in SG: Total. Cantlay has never missed the cut in five PGA Championship tries, with his highest finish being T3 in 2019.


Jordan Spieth (+2000)


Spieth picked up a victory at the RBC Heritage after missing the cut at Augusta for the first time in his career. The three-time major championship is a PGA Championship victory shy of the career major grand slam, and you can expect him to be a betting favorite.


Daniel Berger (+3500)


The 29-year-old might not have the pedigree of a major champion, but the underlying statistics are there to back up this value play. Berger ranks 8th in SG: Approach The Green, 7th in SG: Tee-to-Green, and 5th in SG: Total. The 23rd-ranked player in the world has two career top-15 finishes at the PGA Championship.


Billy Horschel (+8000)


Our 2022 darkhorse, Billy Ho, has put together a nice 2021-22 season to date. The six-time PGA Tour winner has four top-10 finishes, including a pair of runner-ups. An elite putter, Horschel ranks 10th in SG: Putting.
