Online Sports Betting’s 2015 PGA Championship Preview

Online Sports Betting’s 2015 PGA Championship Preview
Can Rory McIlroy recover to score back-to-back wins? Is Jordan Spieth set to grab another major? Could Phil Mickelson or Tiger Woods pull of a surprise and add to their glorious golf resumes? Here's our look at the 2015 PGA Championship.

A Look At The Course

The PGA Championship returns to Wisconsin for the first time since 2010. Whistling Straits in Kohler plays host to 2015's final major this weekend. The Pete and Alice Dye designed course is notorious for its near one thousand bunkers. The last PGA Championship go-around at Whistling Straits featured Dustin Johnson placing a 4 iron in sand that he misinterpreted as lifeless grass and ended up losing his one shot lead on 18. (Martin Kaymer would end up taking the 2010 crown in a playoff over Bubba Watson.) The course is sort of an homage to courses from the UK and Ireland. To prepare for this year's tournament, Rory McIlroy (a +700 bet to win) has been practicing at Whistling Straits while a large chunk of his opponents have been competing at World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Our Pick To Win

Speaking of McIlroy, it was unclear if the reigning PGA Championship titleholder would even be able to compete. The Northern Irishman suffered a nasty ankle injury in July that kept him out of the British Open. Will he bounce back and win? Possibly, but we're too nervous about the state of his recovery to consider him the best option. Jordan Spieth (+500) ranks as the field's favourite and deservedly so. The 22-year-old Texan sensation missed the cut at his last two PGA Championship appearances, but since then he's snagged Masters and US Open victories and ranks as 2015's elite golfer. Spieth is playing for keeps at this year's tournament. "I’ve got a little bit of revenge that I need to get out from having control of The Open Championship with two holes to go and not closing it out," he told the Seattle Times. Dustin Johnson (+1100) is hoping to exorcise his 2010 demons this weekend. "I won’t be grounding my club anywhere if I miss the fairway, that’s for sure. I just missed the memo where all sand is deemed a bunker," remarked Johnson. Other contenders in the field include Jason Day (+1400), Adam Scott (+1600), Bubba Watson (+2000) and Justin Rose (+2000). Two previous champs aiming for another PGA Championship victory include Tiger Woods (+2800) and Phil Mickelson (+2500). We're siding with Spieth when it comes to this tournament and we believe he'll be able boast having three majors in a single campaign once this weekend is through.

Our Pick: Spieth
