US PGA Betting Guide

The USPGA got underway yesterday and although it may be considered the least glamorous of golf’s Majors, everyone is still desperate to get their hands on the Wanamaker trophy.

Oak Hill – situated in Rochester, New York – has staged plenty of huge events in the past, including the 1995 Ryder Cup which saw Europe score only their second victory on U.S. soil.

Thursday’s action was delayed for an hour due to a risk of Thunderstorms, but Adam Scott and Jim Furyk managed to return safely to the clubhouse at -5 and currently lead the way.

We’re going to run through our picks to flourish this weekend at what is the last chance at major triumph before the turn of the year.

Adam Scott (4/1 – Joint-Leader): Timing is key to the Aussies success, he’s now a master at peaking for the majors. In the last three seasons he can boast a win (this year at Augusta), two seconds, a third and a couple more top 15s. When he came tied 23rd here in 2003 it was actually his joint second best finish in a major at the time so there could be a hint of the course suiting him. Two majors in a season is a big ask but Scott has become so reliable at this level that it’s hard to see him not contending.

Phil Mickelson (25/1): Mickelson was absolutely fantastic when storming through to win the Open Championship at Muirfield and that made it two wins on the trot after his victory in the previous Sunday’s Scottish Open. A third triumph at such short notice may be asking too much of big Phil, but stranger things have happened.

Brandt Snedeker (33/1): After capturing the 2012 FedEx Cup, Snedeker has kicked on again this year and two more wins (Pebble Beach in February and the recent RBC Canadian Open) he’s now mentioned in the same breath as those at the top of the game. Snedeker was the halfway leader in last year’s Open at Lytham before finishing third while he had a great chance to win this year’s Masters but dropped to sixth after a lacklustre final round. Overall, he’s made the top 20 in seven of his last 11 starts in majors- he’s a major winner waiting to happen.
