The second major of the season begins on May 18 with the PGA Championship at Oak Hill.
The latest: John Rahm was the favourite to win in our previous update, but Scottie Scheffler now holds that distinction. In other news, Tony Finau holds some solid value at 20-to-1 and Tyrrell Hatton is a name worth keeping an eye on. There are also six Canadians looking to break a 20-year major drought.
Here are the latest PGA Championship odds as of May 15.

Best PGA Championship odds
The favourite: Scottie Scheffler (+700)
Scottie Scheffler is largely living inside the top 10, and his status as the favourite needs no explanation.
The talented Texan has finished inside the top 10 in nine of 12 PGA Tour tournaments in 2022-23. In two of the four tourneys he failed to finish top 10, he finished with a T11.
His impressive run includes wins at The Players Championship and the WM Phoenix Open.
His most recent effort was a T5 finish at AT&T Byron Nelson.
Scheffler and Rahm are the only two competitors with odds shorter than 10-to-1, and it makes sense as they've separated themselves from the pack with their impressive performances this year.

Best value: Tony Finau (+2,000)
The one thing lacking from Finau's resume is a major championship trophy, and this could be the venue for him to get things done.
He's been on fire this season, making 15 straight cuts with 13 top-25 finishes and two wins, including one over Rahm at the Mexico Open in April. That's been because of some remarkably consistent ball-striking. Finau ranks first in SG: APP (+1.108) and 14th in GIR (69.89%).
He hasn't finished inside the top 25 in any of his past five major starts but that doesn't mean he's been a bust at majors. Finau has 10 top-10 finishes at majors — including three at the PGA Championship. He finished T8 in 2021 and T4 in 2020.
Player to watch: Tyrrell Hatton (+2,800)
Hatton is having a fantastic season, but there's just one small problem: He hasn't won anything.
Don't feel too bad for him, though. The Englishman has carded five top-six finishes on tour and all of them were in elevated events, including a runner-up at the Players Championship in March. That means he's raked in a cool $6,407,094.
Hatton has been consistent in most parts of his game. He ranks 11th in SG: OTT (+0.645), 11th in SG: APP (+0.717) and 25th in SG: PUTT (+0.467). The putter has generally been solid but can get cold at times, which has really been his only pitfall this year.
But recent form would suggest that's not something to worry about. Hatton carded a T3 at the Wells Fargo Championship and a T19 at the RBC Heritage, picking up strokes with the flatstick in both events.
Canadian PGA Championship odds
There are six Canadians who qualified to play in the PGA Championship.
|Golfer||Odds (May 16)|
- Corey Conners has the shortest odds of any Canadian in the field. The 31-year-old picked up his second career victory this season at the Valero Texas Open but followed that up by missing the cut at the Masters. Conners has four PGA Championship starts and has only finished inside the top 20 once (T17, 2021).
- Nick Taylor and Adam Hadwin have multiple top 10s this season including a runner-up in team stroke play at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. It's been tough sledding for Taylor Pendrith, though, who's missed six cuts since Jan. 1.
- Adam Svennson and Mackenzie Hughes have both won events this season but not since the fall. Consistency has evaded both players lately and that's not ideal heading into a major championship.
