2016 PGA Championship odds: Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson open as Baltusrol favorites

July 18, 2016


Since winning the Open Championship and PGA Championship in 2014, Rory McIlroy hasn't posted a top-3 finish in a major. That didn't stop the wise men in the desert from making the Irishman a Wanamaker co-favorite at Baltusrol Golf Club.

McIlroy, along with Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, headline the Vegas odds for the 2016 PGA Championship, each listed at an 8-1 figure. Though Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson lapped the field at Royal Troon, both McIlroy and Johnson placed inside the top 10, with Day leaving Scotland with a T-22 finish.

Jordan Spieth follows right behind his "Big 4" compadres at 10-1 odds. The two-time major winner, who finished second to Day at Whistling Straits in 2015, will be looking to bounce back from an uneven week at Royal Troon, as he broke par just once in four rounds.

Stenson, the newest owner of the claret jug, opens at 15-1. Given he sat at a 30-1 mark for the Open, it looks like Vegas is giving credit to where credit is due. Stenson's Troon combatant, the 46-year-old Mickelson, joins Adam Scott, Justin Rose, and Rickie Fowler at 25-1.

Other notables include Bubba Watson and Sergio Garcia (30-1), Brooks Koepka (40-1), Masters champ Danny Willett (50-1) and, yes, Tiger Woods (100-1).
