The 103rd edition of the PGA Championship will be contested in South Carolina at Kiawah Island Golf Resort on the island of the same name, located about 30 miles southwest of Charleston.

As a golf major, the field teeing it up at the famed Ocean course is naturally loaded with all the big names, including each of the top-50 ranked golfers in the world.

With so many stars, there is no clear favorite, although the sports books have created – in essence – two top tiers with betting lines for the top eight (8) players bunched between 11/1 and 16/1, and then four more top favorites offered between 22/1 and 28/1. The rest of the field is 33/1 and better.
