Second Chief PGA Tour Seasons are on the horizon.

With the PGA Championship just around the corner, let's take a look at the latest tournament information, odds, picks and more.

  • 2024 PGA Championship Dates: May 16-19
  • Course: Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky

Recapping last year

Brooks Koepka is the defending champion. Last year, he had the fourth-best odds to win the tournament (+2000). He dropped it by shooting 9-under at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.

Scottie Scheffler, who held the second-best handicap at +850, and Victor Hovland tied for second at 7-under. Cameron Davis, Bryson DeChambeau and Kurt Kitayama finished tied for fourth at 3-under.

Jon Rahm, who was the favorite entering the tournament (+700), had an unusual shot at 7-over.

Former PGA Championship at Valhalla

This will be the fourth time Valhalla will host a PGA Championship, with the last event coming in 2014. Rory McIlroy won the tournament that year, shooting 16-under to beat Phil Mickelson by a stroke.

Tiger Woods won the event at Valhalla in 2000, shooting 18-under to win in a playoff.

Who are the favorites?

Scheffler is a huge favorite, currently sitting at +350 to win it all. He has been on a dominant run of late, winning four tournaments, including the Masters, since March. However, it is not clear whether she will play as she is still awaiting the birth of her first child.

Beyond Scheffler, McIlroy (+1200) and Rahm (+1400) hold the second- and third-best odds, respectively.

What about Tiger Woods?

Tiger Woods was included in the full roster for the event.

Despite his past success at Valhalla, Woods is still a long shot to win the tournament, as he currently sits at +10000 to win it all, the same odds he had to win the Masters in April.

When you talk about Tiger, you have to bring up Phil Mickelson, who won the 2021 PGA Championship. Lefties have +15000 odds to win this year's tournament.

Now that we've covered the basics, let's go over the top favorites and my initial picks to win the tournament.

To make long-shot outright bets

If you follow me Twitter Or read this column, you know I like to bet on golf long shots (+1500 to +2000 or more). There's something thrilling about holding a lottery ticket late on a Sunday. It also presents you with multiple hedging opportunities if you want to eliminate some of your risk.

Many of my bets are based on course history and form, so you'll soon find my full list of some people worth splashing the pizza money on. But, for now, be sure to splash some cash on Köpka, because that number will move significantly next week.

Brooks Koepka +2000
