The golf season is really ramping up with the second Major about to take place in Valhalla, Kentucky, and Betfred is paying out to 10 places!

The US PGA Championship is one of the most prestigious events on the golfing calendar and, for 2024, is ramping up to be as exciting as ever.

Can Scottie Scheffler maintain his winning ways and run away with another title? Will it be deja vu for Rory McIlroy, who won this event at Valhalla ten years ago?

Or would it be a little bit smarter to look beyond the top three or four in the betting and maybe take a punt on a bit of an outsider?

10 Places Payout

The reality is that golf is a game that millions play but few ever master. One good round, even a spectacular round, doesn’t guarantee a win, and anybody can have an off day.

When odds on the likes of Scheffler are so short, he really has to win for you to have any chance of a return on your bet if you back him.

However, Betfred is now paying out to 10 places on the 2024 PGA Championship so as long as you back a player each-way and he finishes in the top 10, you will win the place part of your bet.

All the better if he actually wins the tournament outright, but failing that, placing anywhere from 2nd to 10th will get you a return on your money.

And 10 places each way isn’t all that’s on offer from Betfred this week. They have plenty of other offers and promotions around the PGA Championship, so let’s take a look at some of them below.

PGA Championship Price Boosts

Betfred has three Price Boosts on offer.

First up is Jon Rahm to be the top finishing LIV player.

Odds on that have been boosted from 7/2 to 4/1. Now, that might only be a small hike, but have a point is half a point, and we’ll take it.

Here’s the thing. Jon Rahm only joined the LIV as of 2024 and despite him having a phenomenal year with the PGA in 2023, his current form is a bit of an unknown quantity.

That goes double for the fact that he could only manage tied-45th in the Masters earlier in the year.

Brooks Koepka, however, was top of the LIV rankings at the end of 2023 but he too could only manage joint 45th place in The Masters.

So who will be better placed at the end of the PGA Championship? It’s a toss-up but with the price boost on Rahm, he could be worth a punt.

The second price boost is Scottie Scheffler to win the PGA Championship.

His odds have been boosted from 4/1 to 5/1, and for a guy who currently can’t miss, this is a good deal.

It’s probably not worth backing him each way, but if you’re sure he can win, then that extra point is a solid offer.

The third and final price boost is Ludvig Aberg Top European.

Essentially, from all of the players taking part, Betfred has boosted Aberg’s odds of being the highest-finishing European player from 6/1 to 7/1.

It’s not a bad shout, but it does rely on Rory McIlroy having a terrible tournament as, arguably, he is the better of the two players.

Lowest 18 Hole Score

Which player will have the absolute round of their life? How many, among the 156 players taking part, will sink that little white ball so under par that we have no choice but to be amazed by their brilliance?

Last year quite a few players finished one or more of the rounds five under. That means with the course having a par of 70, they got around in 65 shots, or -5 which was the best anybody did.

Players who racked up a score of -5 on a single round included Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Davis, Kurt Kitayama, Sepp Straka and Cameron Smith.

Valhalla though is a different beast and with a par 71 is slightly tougher to master. When it was last held in 2014, 65, or -6, was the best single round score.
