2015 US PGA Championship Preview & Betting Tips

2015 The PGA Championship

Where: Whistling Straights, Wisconsin, USA
When: Thursday 13th August, 10:00PM AEST
Purse: $10,000,000

If this year’s PGA Championship is anything like the previous one at Whistling Straights, then we could be in for another dramatic finish. The 2010 PGA ended in a playoff between Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson. The dramatic finish came with a controversial decision that cost Dustin Johnson the opportunity at capturing his first major. It was deemed he grounded his club in a waste land (sanded area) that cost him a two stroke penalty and the right to participate in the playoff.

Whistling Straights also hosted the 2004 PGA Championship where there was also a playoff that included Vijay Singh, Justin Leonard and Chris Di Marco. Two tournaments. Two playoffs. Hopefully the 2015 PGA has something dramatic up its sleeve.

I feel there’s a redemption story brewing.

I like the big bombers on this course.

Dustin Johnson 
Ranked number 1 in Driving @ 319 yards. Nothing fazes him. People knock his putting but overall its very solid ranked 4th (1.724 putting average) everyone loves a comeback story.
Bet on Dustin Johnson - $17.5 at Betfair


Bubba Watson
Ranked number 2 in Driving @ 315 yards. His scoring average is amazing (69.399) ranked 2nd. He was runner up here in 2010 eventually losing to Martin Kaymer in a playoff. Comes in well.
Bet on Bubba Watson - $14.5 at Betfair


Bet to Lay or cash out early option

Tony Finau is another big bomber off the tee. I don’t believe he can go all the way but at 230-1 he is good value and can finish in the top 10 or 20.
Bet on Tony Finau - $220 at Betfair
