2016 PGA Championship odds to win from Las Vegas

Jason Day and Rory McIlroy have won the past two PGA Championships.
LAS VEGAS -- Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson have been posted as 8-to-1 co-favorites in Las Vegas to win the PGA Championship (July 28 at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey). This will be the final major of 2016 with first-time major winners capturing the first three. The last time all four majors had first-time winners was 2003.

Day won the PGA Championship last season for his first career major and comes into the event ranked No. 1 in the world. He's won three tournaments this season. McIlroy won his fourth and last major in the 2014 PGA Championship and owns one win and two third-places over 15 events this season. Johnson is the world's second-ranked player and has two wins this season, including his first career major victory at the U.S. Open.

Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook assistant manager Jeff Sherman set the odds for all 155 golfers entered — the only Las Vegas book to offer a price on everyone — and said this year's PGA should be wide open.

"There's a deep talent pool with the top 120 golfers in the world invited and it wouldn't be a surprise to see one of the longer shots win, which has me thinking the best wagering strategy this week is to key on individual golfer matchups rather than playing odds to win," Sherman said. "I could actually see someone like Emiliano Grillo at 125-to-1 odds have a good shot at winning."

Grillo finished 12th in the British Open and the Argentian had a season-best runner-up three weeks prior in the ISPS HANDA Global Cup.
