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

The 2022 PGA Championship will get underway on Thursday, May 19, and a number of players will enter the second major of the year confident they can win. Scottie Scheffler, the No.1-ranked player in the world, secured his first major championship win at the Masters in April, his fourth victory this season. Scheffler has also finished in the top 10 seven times this season and recorded an eighth-place finish at the PGA Championship in 2021. 

Should Scheffler be included in your 2022 PGA Championship picks? Should you back a long shot like Tiger Woods, a 15-time major champion? The latest 2022 PGA Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook list Scheffler as the 11-1 co-favorite with Jon Rahm, while Woods is a 40-1 long shot 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 $7,500 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: McIlroy, a 20-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles at Southern Hills and barely cracks the top 10. McIlroy has been one of the hottest players on tour this season, securing a victory at the CJ Cup and finishing in second at the Masters

However, McIlroy has struggled at the PGA Championship in recent years, finishing 33rd or worse in three of his last four starts at this major. In addition, McIlroy is hitting less than 60 percent of fairways off the tee this season, which could cause major trouble at Southern Hills. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the PGA Championship 2022 field. 

The model has also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 PGA Championship. Woods put on a valiant effort at Augusta National, making the cut and finishing 47th just 14 months after suffering a serious leg injury during a single car crash. Woods opened with a one-under 71 at Augusta National, but back-to-back 78s on the weekend spoiled his return to competition. 

Woods’ ball-striking was on full display at the Masters, and the 15-time major champion will have a much easier walk at Southern Hills compared to the severe undulations at Augusta National. Woods has won 82 events on the PGA Tour in his career, tied with Sam Snead for the most ever. He’s finished on top of the leaderboard four times at the PGA Championship, and 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?
