Just how popular is Tiger Woods? Well, take a look at the prop bets for golf’s second major and you’ll get a good idea. The Big Cat is all over the place. But there are 150 other golfers ready to stamp their name on the daunting Bethpage Black Course in Farmingdale, New York. After decades as the fourth major, the PGA Championship got bumped up the calendar a few months for this year’s playing and there is no shortage of contenders with 99 of the top 100 ranked players ready to peg it up.
There are, of course, the usual pick the winner and matchup bets. And the major championship tournaments bring out a host of additional wagering options. If you’re looking for a little side action, BookMaker is the right place. Let’s take a look at some of the prop bet options and find out where you can make additional coin while wagering on the PGA Championship.

How Many Majors Does Tiger Woods Wins in 2019?
1 Major -445
2 Majors +405
3 Majors +1025
4 Majors +12550
With his Masters victory last month, Woods reignited his efforts to catch Jack Nicklaus for the most major championships. And interestingly enough, he could match The Golden Bear this year if he wins all four majors. On top of winning 18 majors title, Woods would also accomplish something no golfer has done in The Masters era, and that’s win the Grand Slam.
Since no one has ever done it the odds are astronomical at +12550. If anyone can do it Tiger can. He came the closest a few years back holding the title at all four majors at the same time, though he didn’t do it in one calendar year. And Woods is in major form with T6, runner-up and victory in his last three major starts.
The tournament goes four rounds and the action doesn’t really begin until the weekend. So why not throw some action on the early days of the PGA Championship. How about wagering on the first round leader or a top-5 finish after 18 holes? You can do that at BookMaker and the odds for everyone are favorable since it is like picking names out of a hat.
Matt Kuchar wouldn’t be a bad pick in this case since he leads the Tour with a 67.75 scoring average in the opening round of his 12 tournaments. He’s offered at +5000 to be leading after 18 holes. However, a more likely outcome has him sitting in the top-5, and that pays +800.
BookMaker also offers up each trio to wager in three-ball competition. Each member of the group competes against the other two in match play scoring. Three of the top favorites are joined together with Masters champ Woods, defending PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka and two-time major championship winner Francesco Molinari going off on Thursday. There are odds for every trio.
First Round Odds to Win 3-Ball at 2019 PGA Championship
Brooks Koepka +131
Tiger Woods +191
Francesco Molinari +268
Will there be a Hole-in-One at 2019 PGA Championship?
The last major played at Bethpage Black yielded zero, zip, nada in terms of aces. That was the U.S. Open in 2009. And just like that event, the PGA Championship setup is similar in terms of difficulty. And the chance to ace a hole is taken away with three of the four par-3s at a distance of over 205 yards. That’s a long way for weekend Joe Golfer, but a light nine iron for the pros. Still a difficult shot on a difficult course so I’m leaning toward NO on this prop.
Winning Margin at 2019 PGA Championship
1 Stroke +275
2 strokes +350
3 strokes +500
4 or more strokes +300
It’s rare to see a runaway winner like we did in 2012 when Rory McIlroy cleared the field by eight swings. Given the collection of talent it’s safer to think at least a few of the golfers will be on their game and make it close. And the PGA Championship has given us that over the last six years with no margin more than three strokes. A winning margin of two shots has been the most popular spread over that time with each of the last two PGA Championships won by that many.
