Updated PGA Championship Odds
KOHLER, WI (TheSpread) – The opening round of the PGA Championship is in the books and Dustin Johnson has gotten off to another fast start in a major championship.
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Johnson is now the favorite to win this tournament, as he has +350 odds to win, while Jason Day is listed at +500 and Jordan Spieth has +700 odds. The PGA Championship continues Friday-Sunday from Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
Johnson is in the lead to enter Friday’s second round after posting a 6-under 66 on Thursday. He has a one shot lead on David Lingmerth. Johnson had early leads in the U.S. Open and British Open as well, but was unable to turn those into victories.
Day finds himself two shots out of the lead at -4 after he posted a 68 on Thursday. Day has had back-to-back top-10 finishes in majors and is seeking his first major championship.
Spieth had somewhat of a quiet day, shooting just a 1-under 71 on Thursday, but he didn’t take himself out of the running and is known for being able to post low rounds, so look for him to be on the move on Friday if he is going to make a run at the title.
