The highly anticipated 2023 PGA Championship has arrived, promising four days of exceptional golf at the esteemed Oak Hill Country Club in upstate New York. As the tournament kicks off with Round 1, golf enthusiasts eagerly await the unfolding drama and rivalry that will shape this year’s second major championship.
Among the star-studded field, all eyes are on Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler, as they are expected to engage in a thrilling battle over the course of 72 holes. However, in the realm of major championship golf, expectations often differ from reality, especially with a field brimming with talented golfers vying for a portion of the substantial $15 million total purse, with a staggering $2.7 million awaiting the victor.
Aside from the Rahm-Scheffler showdown, the spotlight also shines on Rory McIlroy. He faces an internal battle to regain his major-winning form while navigating the challenges of the familiar Oak Hill course. Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, despite not having won a major yet, round out the top five contenders according to the odds board provided by Caesars Sportsbook. Notably, Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau also present strong prospects, with odds of 20-1 or better.
