USPGA Championship 2019 Tips and Betting Offers, 16th – 19th May 2019, Bethpage Black, New York
It’s barely a month since the Masters wrapped up, but the world’s top golfers are back in major action once again. Instead of May being the lean month in between the Masters and the US Open, the USPGA Championship has been moved to mid-May. This is supposed to stimulate more interest in what used to be the summer’s final – and often forgotten – major. This year is set to be memorable, as the players head for the twists and turns of Bethpage Black.
USPGA Championship Preview
The Masters brings the unique test of Augusta, somewhere that course form plays a huge part. The other majors tour, with this year’s USPGA heading for a tough test in New York. This course is renowned for its difficulty, as it plays long and often plays havoc by testing each facet of a player’s game. Given that, it’s hardly a surprise that this year’s event has a competitive line-up heading the betting.
Tiger Woods has moved out in front after his Masters success, but back to back majors may be asking too much even of Tiger. The Augusta winner is 10/1 with bet365 for success here, matched by Dustin Johnson at 10/1 with Betfair. There are another seven players below 20/1, including last year’s winner Brooks Koepka. However, given that the last returning winner was Tiger in 2007, we think there are better options in this field.
USPGA Championship Betting Verdict
One incredibly consistent player who challenged at the Masters yet again was Jon Rahm. The Spaniard may not be the biggest name, but he finished up just three shots shy of Woods at Augusta, securing a ninth place finish. That shouldn’t have been a surprise, as it was his ninth top 10 from his last 10 outings, ignoring the WGC in Mexico.
He followed up that streak with victory at the Zurich Classic at the end of last month, his final act before heading to Bethpage Black. Nine months ago he was tied fourth at Bellerive in the 2018 edition of this tournament. He could go even better here, so we see value in his price of 20/1 with Coral. Given that they pay out on seven places, the Spaniard looks good for a solid return.
We’re also backing Patrick Cantlay here, another man who performed well at the Masters. In fact, the American even led for a round before slipping down to ninth alongside Rahm. He was only three shots off, but that came after he shot -4 on day four and -8 on day three. He peaked when some golfers would struggle, a clear sign of brighter things to come for the 27-year-old.
While he struggled at the Zurich Classic last time out, he tied third at the RBC Heritage just after the Masters. We think he can build on his test at Augusta, so we’re backing him each way at 40/1 with Betfair, who are paying out on 10 places.
