Golf betting tips for The US PGA Championship
 (in more detail):
Rory McIlroy:
  • Each Way (2pts win @ 13/2 with William Hill 8 places 1/5 odds)

  • Current form (last 5 starts): T19 – 3 – T22 – T33 – 1

  • Tournament form (last 5 starts) T8 – T33 -T49 – 8 – T7

Reasons to believe – Rory McIlroy:

“The stars are aligned for Rory this week with back to back wins PLUS the event taking place at Valhalla just like in 2014. I have a good feeling that Rory’s long wait for a major win could finally come to an end this week. Fingers crossed!” – ParUp Golf’s resident tipster ‘Big Dal’ on why he can win.

Scottie Scheffler:
  • Win (2 win @ 4/1 with William Hill)

  • Current form (last 5 starts) 1 – 1 – T2 – 1 – 1

  • Tournament form (last 5 starts): DNP – T4 – T8 – MC – T2

Reasons to believe – Scottie Scheffler:

“I think Scottie’s odds are a bit low for my taste, but with 4 wins and a 2nd place finish in his last 5 starts, plus the new daddy boost, he definitely deserves a spot on the list. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s at the top again this week!” – ParUp Golf’s resident tipster ‘Big Dal’ on why he can win.

Xander Schauffele:
  • Win (2 win @ 14/1 with William Hill)

  • Current form (last 5 starts) T2 – T5 – 8 – T18 – 2

  • Tournament form (last 5 starts): T16 – T10 – MC – T13 – T18

Reasons to believe – Xander Schauffele:

“Once again, Xander knocked on the door of victory but ended up falling just short. Hopefully he won’t end up like Colin Montgomery or Lee Westwood, overflowing with talent but always falling short in the majors. This week, we’re crossing our fingers that he finally shakes off the monkey on his back. Here’s to hoping for a breakthrough!” – ParUp Golf’s resident tipster ‘Big Dal’ on why he can win.

Brooks Koepka:
  • Win (2 win @ 14 William Hill)

  • Current form (last 5 starts): 28 – T45 – T45 – T9 – 1

  • Tournament form (last 5 starts): 1 – T29 – T2 – T53 – 1

Reasons to believe – Brooks Koepka:

“Brooks has won this event three times before, and it seems like he’s in top form after winning his last event on the Liv tour. He always performs well in the majors, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see his name at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday!” – ParUp Golf’s resident tipster ‘Big Dal’ on why he can win.

Big Dal’s, big price outsider
– Wyndham Clark
  • Win (1 each way @ 35/1 with William Hill)

  • Current form (last 5 starts) T2 – T3 – MC – T3 – T47

  • Tournament form (last 5 starts):DNP – MC – T75 – SNP – MC

Reasons to believe – Wyndham Clark:

“Hey! Clark hasn’t had the best form in the USPGA in recent years. But people are talking about how the set up is similar to the US Open, a tournament he won before. His skills should match this course well, so maybe he can snatch another major title this week!” – ParUp Golf’s resident tipster ‘Big Dal’ on why he can win.
