2022 PGA Championship odds, picks: Tiger Woods predictions by proven model that nailed Masters finish

Longtime rivals Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have been included in the final 2022 PGA Championship field, signaling their intention to play at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa next Thursday in the second major championship of the season. Woods made his return to competitive golf at the 2022 Masters after suffering a serious car accident in early 2021. Meanwhile, Mickelson has been away from the PGA Tour for months.



Mickelson won last year’s PGA Championship as a 50-year-old at Kiawah Island, but returns as a 100-1 long shot in the latest 2022 PGA Championship odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Woods surprised by making the cut at Augusta National, but struggled throughout the weekend and is 40-1 among the 2022 PGA Championship contenders, while Jon Rahm is the 11-1 favorite. Before locking in your 2022 PGA Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.



SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it’s up almost $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. The model also nailed Tiger Woods’ exact finishing position at Augusta National before the tournament started (47th). 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.

whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.



Now that the 2022 PGA Championship field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2022 PGA Championship leaderboard.

Model’s top 2022 PGA Championship predictions
One huge shocker the model is calling for at the PGA Championship 2022: McIlroy, a 20-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles at Southern Hills and barely cracks the top 10. After winning two PGA Championships over a three-year stretch, the Irishman has struggled. Over his last seven appearances, he has just one top-10 and has finished outside the top 25 four times.




McIlroy is having a strong season overall, but his peripherals suggest he’s leaving strokes on the course. He is struggling with iron play, as he is 62nd in strokes gained approaching the green, the worst mark of his career. His precision is also not to his normal standards, as McIlroy ranks 73rd in greens in regulation percentage and is outside the top 100 in driving accuracy percentage. McIlroy hasn’t topped a leaderboard over his last 29 major appearances and his struggles with accuracy suggest that won’t change at Southern Hills.

The model has also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 PGA Championship. Woods won his 13th career major at the 2007 PGA Championship, the last time that Southern Hills hosted the event. After coming out of the gates sluggishly with a 71 that put him six shots off the lead in the first round, Woods tied the course record with a second-round 63 to take the lead and never looked back. At the time, the 31-year-old looked destined to break Jack Nicklaus’ record of 19 major championship wins.

Fast-forward 15 years and Woods has only been able to add two more majors to his resume thanks to injury issues and off-the-course problems. In addition to winning the 2019 Masters, he won the 2019 Zozo Championship to tie Sam Snead’s PGA Tour record of 82 wins. His health will be the biggest issue this time around at Southern Hills, as he looked labored throughout the Masters last month. The model just locked in its Tiger Woods PGA Championship picks here.

The model is also targeting three golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.
