PGA Championship Betting Tips


The PGA Championship is the fourth major championship in professional golf. It is usually played in mid-August but will be moved to the third weekend of May beginning in 2019. The PGA Championship is played at various locations in the United States.

The first PGA Championship was held in 1916 at Siwanoy Country Club in New York. Initially a match play event, the tournament was changed to stroke play in 1958 with the standard 72-hole format over four days from Thursday to Sunday.

The PGA Championship is primarily played in the eastern half of the United States with only ten tournaments taking place in the west. The last tournament played in the Pacific time zone was in 1998 at Sahalee in Seattle. The PGA Championship returns to the west in 2020 at Harding Park in San Francisco.

Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen have the most PGA Championship wins with five each, the Golden Bear also finishing runner-up on four occasions. Rory McIlroy holds the record for the greatest winning margin with an 8 stroke victory in 2012, Jason Day shooting the lowest in history with 20 under par in 2015.

The defending champion is Justin Thomas from the United States who won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina. The 2018 PGA Championship will be the 100th edition of the tournament and will be held at the Bellerive Country Club in Missouri.
