Golf Betting Tips: 2016 US PGA Championship

2016 US PGA Championship Preview & Betting Tips

The fourth and final major of the year has arrived. If you’re thinking “that’s come around quickly” its because it has. The USPGA Championship is usually played in August. However, the Rio Olympics will be taking that time slot this year.
Baltusrol golf club (lower course) in Springfield, New Jersey will be hosting the event. It has been over a decade since a major has been played here. Baltusrol has also hosted U.S amateur and U.S Open golf tournaments. The course itself will play very tough, almost as tough as the 2016 U.S Open I’m predicting. In 2005 Phil Mickelson won the PGA Championship on this course with a score of 276 (or 4 under).

My favourite feature of Baltusrol lower golf course are the 17th and 18th holes. The 17th is a beast at approximately 650 yards which can be reached in two (theoretically) and the final hole is a much shorter par 5 that sets up for a thrilling finish.
There are thunderstorms forecast for Friday and Sunday with temperatures in the 30s.

So far this year all the majors have been won by first timers. Danny Willet took out the Masters, Dustin Johnson won the U.S Open and last week Henrik Stenson lifted the Claret Jug. This is a trend that should come to an end. World number one Jason Day looks hungry and is dangerous this time of year. As is world number four Rory McIlroy who won the USPGA Championship in 2012 and 2014.

Ladbrokes has a US PGA Championship Bet Blast special – which includes the top four favourites Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth for a total odd of $3.50 (max bet $50). I really like the chances for three of these golfers and I could make an argument for all four.

Tip: Favourite Four Special -$3.50 at Ladbrokes
