The PGA Championship will tee off on Thursday morning and hey, it's a major championship so let's place a few bets.

We're not going to stick to only outright bets this week, but if you want those you can find my betting preview here.

In this article, we're going to talk some prop bets. I have three that I have placed for the second major of the year and I'm ready to break them down.

PGA Championship Prop Bets

  • Sahith Theegala Top Debutant +550
  • Dustin Johnson Top LIV Golfer +450
  • Exact winning margin 2 strokes +350

Sahith Theegala Top Debutant +550

Top debutant means the golfer to finish with the lowest score amongst all of those making their first start at a PGA Championship. Sahith Theegala may be the favorite in this category, but I still think he provides some value to win this at his currenty price.

Theegala has been playing some solid golf lately, including a 9th place finish at The Masters last month, another tournament where he was making his debut. He's long off the tee and his accuracy issues have been fixed over the past month. He has the weapons, the history, and the skill to get it done this week at Oak Hill.

Dustin Johnson Top LIV Golfer +450

At The Masters, Brooks Koepka went deep and fell just short of winning a Green Jacket. But, the key to his success was that he entered Augusta in great form, having won the LIV event the week prior. This time, it's Dustin Johnson who's entering at the top of his game, winning last week's LIV event in Tulsa.

Let's not forget DJ has two major championships to his name along with two second place finishes at PGA Championships. I think he's a great bet to finish as the top LIV golfer at Oak Hill.

Winning margin of 2 strokes +350

I'm keeping it simple with this one and betting based solely on history. Six of the last seven PGA Champions have won by exactly two strokes. Not only that, but the last two times it's been hosted at Oak Hill, the winner also won by exactly two strokes.

That's too much history for me to ignore, especially with it available at +350.
