The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship has made a steadfast effort in growing the game of golf on the women’s side, thanks to great golf courses and a great field.
This year, the stakes have been raised even higher. The Women’s PGA Championship heads to the famed Congressional Country Club in Bethesda (Md.) for this year’s edition.
This week, they also surprised the players by doubling the purse from $4.5 million to $9 million. That makes it the second biggest purse of any LPGA event behind the U.S. Women’s Open ($9.5 million). The winner of the event will take home $1.35 million.
Speaking of winners, there are some familiar names billed as the favorites this week. Jin Young Ko and Nelly Korda, the top two ranked players in the world, are the favorites to take home the trophy at +900 on DraftKings. Korda is coming off of a second-place finish at last week’s Meijer LPGA Classic.
Following closely behind those two is Lydia Ko at +1000. And Minjee Lee — the winner of the 2022 U.S Women’s Open — rounds out the top four contenders for the Women’s PGA at +1200 on DraftKings.
There are a host of players from +1600 to +3000, including Lexi Thompson, Brooke Henderson, Attaya Thitkul, Jessica Korda and Nasa Hataoka.
1. Jin Young Ko +900
Jin Young has been the No. 1 ranked player in the world for most of the 2022 season after Korda dealt with a blood clot in her arm. She’s still looking for her first major win since 2019.
2. Nelly Korda +900
Korda came back from a three-month layoff and immediately placed in the top 10 of the U.S. Women’s Open. She followed that up with a second-place finish last week.
It appears that she’s returned to full health and is deservedly one of the favorites as she defends her title.
3. Lydia Ko +1000
Lydia is coming off three straight top-five finishes, including the U.S. Women’s Open. She hasn’t won a major since 2016, but is playing some of her best golf since then.
4. Minjee Lee +1200
Lee ran away with the U.S. Women’s Open just a few weeks ago. She showed why she’s the No. 3 ranked golfer in the world.
Can she win back-to-back majors in the same month?
