US PGA Championship Tips and Betting Offers, Thursday 9th – Sunday 13th August 2018, Bellerive Country Club
One week after Georgia Hall became the first British woman to win a major championship in nine years at the British Open, it’s time for the final major of the men’s golf season. This is a big year for the US PGA Championship. Not only is the tournament at Bellerive Country Club the 100th staging of this great event but it will move forward to May in the schedule next year. We have a typically competitive field assembled in St. Louis, Missouri for what should be a cracking renewal.
US PGA Championship Betting Tips
The US PGA Championship has often, unfairly, been viewed as the poorest relation of the four majors. With the world’s best players not preparing in quite the same way as they do for the Masters, U.S. Open or the Open, the US PGA Championship is a great opportunity for outsiders to claim a major win.
That is not to say that players regularly come completely out of the blue to win. 16 of the last 20 US PGA Champions already had a win to their name in the year of their victory and the form trend stretches further than that. A good showing at the previous week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational has often been a springboard to success at the PGA and that form could be particularly strong this year.
Like Firestone Country Club, Bellerive is long par 70 with only two par fives and a host of lengthy par fours. Above average power off the tee is a bonus if not a prerequisite at Bellerive where the most important skill is likely to be ball striking. Putting has been a key indicator of success in past tournaments at Bellerive but those who can hit their irons high and accurately will negate the importance of the putter by sticking the ball close to the pins.
The style of golf required at Bellerive is very similar to that required at Firestone and it would be no surprise to see Justin Thomas follow up last week’s success with a second major championship in St. Louis. Thomas is the defending champion so will have more on his plate than his competitors but he is used to the rigours of being a golfing star.
The world number two won at Firestone despite battling his game a little on Sunday and that grit coupled with his towering ball flight and excellent ball striking makes him look a great fit for Bellerive at 14/1 with Ladbrokes.
The upcoming Ryder Cup adds another dimension to the US PGA Championship. Thomas Bjorn has some very tough calls to make with so many talented players outside of the automatic qualifying places for Europe and his fellow Dane, Thorbjorn Olesen is one of the players giving Bjorn a headache.
Olesen may be a streaky player but he’s proven he can compete at the very top level with some big wins on the European Tour. The 28-year-old won the prestigious Italian Open this summer and his Sunday charge to finish third at Firestone means he screams each way value at 100/1 with Coral.
Extra Each Way Places: Things to Note
- Odds – be sure to check the odds as some bookies will pay ¼ the odds whilst some will pay 1/5 (usually the sites paying the most places are 1/5)
- Free Bets or Cash – sometimes bookies will pay cash for the top five or six but then free bets if your player finishes lower (although note Coral’s 10 places is all cash)
- Dead Heat Rules – all bookies use dead heat rules for these markets. This means that if your player is involved in a tie part of your bet may be settled as a losing bet. See the site in question for info on dead heat rules (all bookies apply these rules in the same way)
