2022 PGA Championship odds, picks: Tiger Woods predictions from proven model that nailed Masters finish

Once again, Tiger Woods is the center of attention as the world’s top golfers converge on Southern Hills Country Club for the 2022 PGA Championship, which gets underway on Thursday. Woods is a 15-time major champion and won the PGA Championship the last time it was held at Southern Hills in 2007. Woods has lifted the Wanamaker Trophy four times in his career, but should he be included in your 2022 PGA Championship picks? Woods will play alongside Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth for the first two rounds. The star-studded trio will tee off on Thursday morning at 9:11 a.m. ET, according to the 2022 PGA Championship tee times.

In the latest 2022 PGA Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook, Woods is 50-1 to finish on top of the leaderboard. Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1 ranked player in the world, and Jon Rahm are the 11-1 co-favorites on the PGA odds board. Before locking in your 2022 PGA Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it’s up almost $9,000 on its best bets since that point, nailing tournament after tournament.

At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s model was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major championship victory heading into the weekend. The model also nailed Tiger Woods’ exact finishing position at Augusta National before the tournament started (47th). In addition, McClure’s best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2022 PGA Championship field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2022 PGA Championship leaderboard.

Model’s top 2022 PGA Championship predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the PGA Championship 2022: Rory McIlroy, a 20-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles at Southern Hills and barely cracks the top 10. McIlroy had five top-10s across his first six PGA Championship appearances, including wins in 2012 and 2014. But since then, he has just one across his last seven PGA Championships as his iron play has gone from elite to average.

McIlroy ranked in the top 12 in strokes gained approaching the green in the two years he won this event, but he sits 66th this year. Struggling in the long game has led to a reduced number of birdie opportunities, and McIlroy has just 107 this season, which ranks 199th out of 210 golfers. The Irishman also hasn’t had a run of strong finishes at recent majors, as he has more finishes outside the top 40 (three) than inside the top 10 (two) over his last five major appearances. The model sees there being far better values than McIlroy for your 2022 PGA Championship bets.

The model has also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 PGA Championship. The model has also examined Tiger Woods’ chances at the 2022 PGA Championship. Woods will enter the second major of the year confident he can make noise. That’s because Woods still holds the course record at Southern Hills. He fired a 63 in the second round of the PGA Championship in 2007, which tied the record for the lowest single-round score at a major championship.

Woods’ familiarity with Southern Hills will play a factor in how he performs in just his second start after his horrific car accident. Woods is a long shot to win the PGA Championship 2022, according to oddsmakers, but his success at major championships and extensive knowledge of the course could be major X-factors. The model just locked in its Tiger Woods PGA Championship picks here.

How to make 2022 PGA Championship picks

The model is also targeting three golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.

Who will win the 2022 PGA Championship, which long shots will stun the golfing world, and where will Tiger Woods finish?
