PGA Championship 2022 best bets: Props, sleepers, head-to-head matchups, one and done picks from golf expert

The second major on the 2022 PGA Tour schedule tees off Thursday at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa. The 2022 PGA Championship field is loaded with young talent looking to leave their mark on the golf world. World No. 1 and reigning Masters champion Scottie Scheffler and world No. 2 Jon Rahm are the co-favorites at 11-1 in the latest 2022 PGA Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Other 2022 PGA Championship contenders include Rory McIlroy (14-1), Justin Thomas (14-1), 2020 winner Collin Morikawa (16-1), and Dustin Johnson (18-1). Defending champion Phil Mickelson has withdrawn from the PGA Championship 2022 field.

Will Scheffler continue his run of stellar play and take home his second career major title? Or will a long shot winner emerge from the field to capture a win the 2022 PGA Championship? Before locking in any PGA Championship 2022 picks of your own, be sure to check out the PGA predictions and betting advice from SportsLine golf expert Mike McClure.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, it’s up over $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. 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. The model was also all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. 

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

Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2022 PGA Championship field and just revealed his top PGA Championship prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see McClure’s 2022 PGA Championship prop picks, sleepers head-to-head matchups bets, and his top one and done pick.

PGA Championship prop bets

McClure is high on Tyrrell Hatton to finish in the top 20 at +450 odds. Hatton only has one career PGA Tour victory (at the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational), but he has two top-10s at the PGA Championship and six top-25s in 2022.

Hatton is one of the best putters in the world, ranking second on the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting (1.009). McClure is leaning on Hatton’s elite skills on the green and believes he’ll secure a top-20 finish this week at Southern Hills.

PGA Championship sleepers

One sleeper McClure is targeting this week at Southern Hills is Brooks Koepka, who is 45-1 at Caesars. Koepka has struggled at times in 2022 as he battles back from injury, but McClure knows the four-time major champion tends to put his best foot forward on big stages against top competition. With two PGA Championships already on his resume, McClure sees huge value in backing Koepka as one of the 2022 PGA Championship sleepers.

PGA Championship one-and-done picks

McClure’s 2022 PGA Championship one and done picks feature Justin Thomas, the No. 9 player in the world. Thomas is one of the most skilled iron players the PGA Tour has ever seen and has the game to win against any field he faces. Thomas is coming off a fifth-place finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson and finished eighth at the 2022 Masters in April. It’s easy to see why McClure is including the 2017 PGA Championship winner in his 2022 PGA one and done picks.

McClure has also locked in a slew of other prop bets for the 2022 PGA Championship, including a long shot listed at 150-1 to win it all. Anyone who backs one of his 2022 PGA Championship sleepers could hit it big. You can only see his PGA Championship best bets here.
