We're coming off a solid week entering another major championship after cashing in on Joel Moscatel (+6000) on the Challenge Tour and Doug Barron (+6600) on PGA Tour Champions.

The LPGA nearly provided a third outright, but Madelene Sagström let a three-shot lead slip away in her duel with Rose Zhang at the Cognizant Founders Cup.

The PGA Championship highlights this week, but we have four other tours in action as well to focus on. With a major going on, there can be opportunity elsewhere. Look no further than Masters week, when we hit a +6000 winner in South Africa during the Sunshine Tour Championship.

Find my 2024 PGA Championship & Global Golf Picks for the following events and tours below.

  • PGA Championship – PGA Tour, DP World Tour & LIV Golf
  • Mizuho Americas Open – LPGA
  • Advent Health Championship – Korn Ferry Tour
  • Amundi German Masters – Ladies European Tour
  • Kansai Open – Japan Golf Tour

2024 PGA Championship & Global Golf Picks

PGA Championship – PGA Tour, DP World Tour & LIV Golf

Best Bet: Byeong Hun An +7500 (FanDuel)

We're entering a major championship with Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Kopeka all coming off of wins in their most recent starts. That's quite the three-headed dragon we'll need to slay this week.

I do have a couple of early bets on this. One is decent with Bryson DeChambeau at +4500. The other is awful with Rickie Fowler at +6600. He's easily four times that price now in some spots.

Valhalla is playing over 7,600 yards this week, so distance will be an edge. My favorite play this week is Ben An at +7500. He finished a distant third behind McIlroy and Xander Schauffele last week and was fourth in the prior week at the Byron Nelson.

The 2009 U.S. Amateur winner has long been tabbed for a breakthrough that has just never really come on the PGA Tour. However, he's reached the top of the amateur game and has a win at Wentworth on the resume as well.

His putting has improved quite a bit this year with the broomstick, and that provides some hope that a win could be imminent. The distance and ball-striking are world class, so if he finds his way around the greens this week, he could be there come Sunday with a chance at a major.

Other PGA Championship Bets:

  • Tyrrell Hatton +5500
  • Sepp Straka +11000
  • Dean Burmester +12500

Mizuho Americas Open – LPGA

Best Bet: Leona Maguire +4000 (BetRivers)

Leona Maguire is my favorite play on the LPGA this week.

She was seventh here a year ago in this event's debut and had her best putting performance of the season. Hopefully there's something about these greens she likes that will carry her again this week.

She's had a good year and led the stroke-play portion of the match-play event before losing to Nelly Korda in the final in early April. She was also 12th last week.

Other Mizuho Americas Open Bets:

  • Haeran Ryu +2500
  • Jennifer Kupcho +6600
  • Esther Henseleit +7000

Advent Health Championship – Korn Ferry Tour

Best Bet: Trevor Cone +5000 (BetRivers)

The Korn Ferry Tour is back after a couple weeks off. This has been a regular stop for about 15 years now in Kansas City and has been played on this course since 2019.

It's been a bomber's course of late with Cameron Young, Trevor Cone and Grayson Murray winning the last three times.

Cone will be the play here for me. He's won here obviously, and the form is solid coming in. He's been 26th or better in five of his last six KFT starts, so this is an intriguing price for a someone who's shown the course fits his eye.

Other Advent Health Championship Bets:

  • Kristoffer Ventura +5000
  • Alistair Docherty +5500
  • Trevor Werbylo 100-1
  • Brent Grant 100-1

Amundi German Masters – Ladies European Tour

Best Bet: Mariajo Uribe +2500 (bet365)

The Ladies Euro Tour goes from South Korea to Germany this week. That's quite the trip, especially for players on this tour. Consequently, we'll have to account for that a bit.

Mariajo Uribe is the play here for me. She's been inside the top four the last three events she's played, including a win on this tour. She's announced she's retiring following the Olympics as she attempts to represent her native Colombia, so we're getting a level of focus each week from her to ensure she remains in a qualifying position.

She's mainly been competing on the LPGA since 2014 with mixed results, but this tour is a pretty large step down in terms of field depth, and it appears she's found a level of comfort here.

Other Amundi German Masters bets:

  • Kim Metraux +5500
  • Jana Melichova 160-1
  • Tereza Melecká 160-1
  • Carolin Kauffmann 300-1

Kansai Open – Japan Golf Tour

Best Bet: Jinichiro Kozuma +3500 (bet365)

We wrap up the week in Japan. It's been a tour I've passed on in recent weeks, but we get some options here with some of the better players either playing the PGA Championship or shifting their focus to the DP World Tour.

I'll go to Jinichiro Kozuma this week. He's been playing on LIV Golf this season and made his way to that tour through its qualifier.

Kozuma has notched a couple wins on this tour in his career, and though his results on LIV Golf haven't been great, he was ninth there a few weeks ago in at LIV Adelaide. With a recent result against that type of field, I'll take this number here back in his home country where he's likely one of the top-five players in the field.

Other Kansai Open Bets:

  • Sejung Hiramoto +6000
  • Shota Yoshimoto +30000
