With all the young talent on the PGA TOUR nowadays, last year’s PGA Championship on Kiawah Island provided a pleasant shock to golf fans’ systems.

Phil Mickelson was at least 100-1 before 2021’s second major. He was not in great form, frankly looked like he had lost a step. Then the Aviator-wearing lefty proved us wrong, besting Brooks Koepka of all people in the final round to win his sixth major and first Wanamaker Trophy since 2005.

This year, Mickelson is not even close to the top of the odds board for the PGA Championship, which will be held at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla. Heck, he might not even play given his recent controversy.

When the Masters ended, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas sat atop the odds board for this year in Oklahoma. The following morning, the winner of the green jacket had joined them at 12-1.

Scottie Scheffler has five top-10 finishes in seven major-championship appearances, although he’s finished in the top 20 in all seven. He also has said in the past that Southern Hills is his favorite course.

They were followed by Rory McIlroy (+1400), Collin Morikawa and Dustin Johnson at 16-1 and then Brooks Koepka and Cameron Smith at 18-1. The only remaining players at 20-1 or lower are Patrick Cantlay and Viktor Hovland.

1. Jon Rahm (+1200)

Rahm was the No. 1 player in the world until Scottie Scheffler began his tear, and it doesn’t appear like the Masters champion will be willing to give that title soon. Rahm is still widely considered the most talented player in the world, despite his struggles — which 90% of players on TOUR would happily take — to start 2022.

2. Justin Thomas (+1200)

It may be a surprise to see Thomas up there with Rahm as one of the favorites, but here we are. After an opening round of 76 at The Masters, Thomas followed that up with 67-72-72 to finish in the top 10. His caddie, Bones McKay, will be one of the few that has experience at Southern Hills, having caddied there for Phil Mickelson in the 2007 PGA Championship.

3. Scottie Scheffler (+1200)

The hottest man in golf is currently 14-1 to follow up his Masters victory with a PGA Championship. There would be no surprise to see the current No. 1 player in the world as the betting favorite by the time tournament week rolls around. He has won four of his last six starts, after all.

4. Rory McIlroy (+1400)

McIlroy miraculously shot the Sunday scoring record of 64 at the Masters to finish in second, despite never seriously contending throughout the week. That should be a major boost for his confidence for someone who hasn’t won a major in eight years.

5. Collin Morikawa (+1400)

Morikawa is one of those guys that is expected to be in the mix in majors for the next 15-plus years. He finished in the top 10 at the Masters and was far from his best. He’s the best iron player on the planet, which means he will almost always be in the mix, especially on the tougher golf courses.

6. Dustin Johnson (+1600)

Dustin Johnson has been in a winning funk, having not won since the 2020 Masters. That’s crazy to think about, as he’s still widely considered one of the best players on TOUR. It appears he’s on the backside of his career, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any more good weeks left in him.

7. Brooks Koepka (+1800)

Koepka was basically an auto-bet in majors for the past five years since winning his four between 2017 and ’18. That major magic hasn’t shown up in the last two years, though. He was crushed by Phil Mickelson on Sunday of the 2021 PGA Championship and has failed to contend since then.

8. Cameron Smith (+1800)

Smith being this far down the list will likely surprise some people. He’s been undeniably the second-hottest golfer — behind Scheffler — in 2022, with two wins in five starts. He will likely get plenty of action for the PGA Championship.

9. Patrick Cantlay (+2000)

Cantlay hasn’t been as consistent over the last couple of months after he had four-straight top 10s to start 2022, but there’s no doubt he’s high on the list of best players who have not won their first major.

10. Viktor Hovland (+2000)

The Norwegian would also be high on the list of best players without a major. It’s almost a foregone conclusion that he will win one eventually. Will the 2022 PGA Championship be the one?
