Rory McIlroy is the huge favorite to win his second PGA Championship
Adam Scott, Justin Rose, and Rickie Fowler aren't too far behind, though.
The world is Rory McIlroy's for the taking right now -- if the British Open didn't prove that then the Bridgestone Invitational certainly did.
McIlroy is going for his third straight win -- he would be the first since Tiger Woods in 2008 to do that -- this week at Valhalla and he carries with him the weight of being the Tiger-like favorite.
Here's a look at the odds:
Rory McIlroy: 5-1
This is deserved but man, with the deepest field in golf 5-1 is a strong number. Still, I think it takes more stones to bet against him than on him right now.
Adam Scott: 12-1
Justin Rose: 16-1
Sergio Garcia: 16-1
Phil Mickelson: 20-1
Rickie Fowler: 20-1
I know Mickelson shot a 62 on Sunday at Bridgestone but 20-1 is generous for somebody who doesn't have a top-10 finish on the PGA Tour this season.
I love Fowler at 20-1 and why not? He has been the most consistent major golfer of the season. Also, I would be stunned if Scott wasn't there on Sunday afternoon.
Henrik Stenson: 25-1
Matt Kuchar: 28-1
Keegan Bradley: 28-1
Bubba Watson: 33-1
Jim Furyk: 33-1
Charl Schwartzel: 35-1
Jordan Spieth: 35-1
Spieth is interesting here. Everyone thought he was going to win at least once on tour this year and so far he has come up empty. How long can that last? I think 35-1 is a good number.
Same for Bradley. He played great at Bridgestone and he's motivated by the automatic Ryder Cup points.
Graeme McDowell: 40-1
Martin Kaymer: 40-1
Brandt Snedeker: 50-1
Marc Leishman: 50-1
Hideki Matsuyama: 50-1
Jason Day: 50-1
Jimmy Walker: 50-1
Martin Kaymer at 40-1 to win the PGA Championship?! Did anyone watch the US Open?
Also, Leishman has been terrific the back half of the season. He has three top eight finishes in his last four tournaments but because he doesn't have a big name his odds remain high. I'm in.
