- Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the 2019 PGA Tour Championship at Bethpage Black.
- Josh Perry already had placed a pair of bets for the second Major of the season but added one more name to the list after the Masters.
With one Major in the books, it won’t be long until the Tour is gearing up for the PGA Championship, which takes place at Bethpage Black, one of the toughest tee-to-green tests around, on beautiful Long Island from May 16 to 19.
Bethpage Black hasn’t hosted a major since 2009 when Lucas Glover won a rain-soaked U.S. Open. Tiger Woods also won his 2002 U.S. Open here, which will help us from a betting standing point as the 2019 Masters Champ has already dropped to +850 and will likely push other high-level players down the board.
Bethpage is a 7,400-yard behemoth that has played as a par 70 for the two U.S. Opens and a par 71 for two FedEx Cup events, won by Nick Watney in 2012 and Patrick Reed in 2016.
