Betting on the PGA Championship
Being a 3-day event, the most popular bet on the PGA Champs is the outright winner bet. This simply involves predicting which player will win the tournament outright. It is also possible to predict the top-3 finishers and the total winning point margin. Head-to-head bets are also popular, as well as predicting the top finishers for each day of the competition.
