The PGA Championship betting options are endless, and so are the daily fantasy choices. The best of the best will gather at the 101st version of this major at Bethpage Black Course. Check out our top DFS picks right here.
Tiger Woods ($11,300)
Tiger Woods is playing his best golf since winning the PGA’s Player of the Year honor back in 2013. Heck, since he actually won a major this season, the argument can be made he’s playing his best golf in more than a decade. Either way, Tiger is a must-start in daily fantasy tomorrow. Woods won the Masters last month, in case you missed it. Another major win was becoming inevitable for Woods, especially after some terrific performances in 2018. The 43-year-old finished in the top six in the final two majors last season. Although Woods is no longer the betting favorite to win the PGA at many sportsbooks, he is the most expensive golfer in daily fantasy.
Brooks Koepka ($10,400)
Brooks Koepka has slowly climbed atop the overall betting favorites at sportsbooks across the world. It should come as no surprise because the 29-year-old has been the best golfer in the sport for the past two years. Koepka has won three of the last seven majors he’s participated in. That also includes finishing second to Woods at the Masters in April and sixth at the Open Championship in 2017. The Florida native really has no weaknesses in his game right now, so he definitely deserves a spot in any DFS lineup.
Justin Rose ($9,900)
As the famous movie line goes, Justin Rose missed the cut at the Masters, then took the field at the Wells Fargo and totally redeemed himself! Rose was one of the biggest favorites at Augusta National, fitting for one of the top players in the world. Yet, he disappointed on Thursday and Friday. At the Wells Fargo a few weeks later, Rose fired rounds of 70-67-68-68 to finish in third place overall. Expect a motivated Rose to climb the leaderboard at the PGA all weekend long.
Rickie Fowler ($9,300)
Speaking of major wins, this is the only thing that has eluded Rickie Fowler during his incredible career. Fowler is only 30 years old, but has already taken the mantle of best player on tour without a major to his name. He’s certainly come close to winning one, finishing in the top five at eight majors since 2011. His 2014 season was impressive, if not crushing. Fowler’s major results from that year look like this: fifth, second, second and third. It has to eventually happen for the sharpest dresser on tour.
Bubba Watson ($8,000)
Lost in the Tiger-mania Sunday at the Masters was the fact that Bubba Watson somehow slipped into the winners discussion. The two-time Masters champion roared up the leaderboard, finishing tied for 12th. It was a (lesser) return to glory for Watson, who missed the cut at the final three majors of the 2018 season. If Watson can find his swing again at Bethpage Black, the rest of the field needs to stay on their toes.
