Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

This week in golf we’ve got the PGA Championship.

It’s a tournament where I haven’t had much luck in the past, but I did correctly pick Brooks Koepka to win in 2019, and then in 2020 had the 100/1 Paul Casey E/W bet place so that was nice.

Hopefully get something here although as I’ve said in the past – bloody hate tipping Majors as there is so much to them etc and so much additional analysis and so on. In saying that – E/W places are generally nice.

This is going to be a difficult course. I have no real confidence due to just guesses on what will work on this course and some data from 2012. Basically if it wasn’t a Major I’d skip it. Just small bets. Let’s get to it:

PGA Championship 2021 Betting Tips:

With the potential winds, I can’t take Dechambeau. E/W is Top 8.

$62.50 on Justin Thomas To Win & E/W at 16/1:

Not coming in on rocking form but it means we’re getting a good price on him. He’s under the radar but he is playing well, and I think can be a solid contender here.

$125 on Xander Schauffele To Win & E/W at 22/1:

Good when it comes to the big tournaments. Playing well. I go back and forth on whether he can perform on this course well but I think he can.

$62.50 on Cameron Smith To Win & E/W at 40/1

Not the best PGA Championship history but on form at the moment and handles wind well.

$62.50 on Gary Woodland To Win & E/W at 100/1.

Surprising price for him and happy to back it. Has struggled with injuries but seems good now.

$62.50 on Sam Burns To Win & E/W at 60/1

Considering his form, crazy price. Yeah he doesn’t have the Majors form but still worth a bet at that price.


Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
