Betting odds: Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win the PGA Championship
By Bernie D'Amato under PGA Championship

 

According to Bovada.lv, Rory McIlroy (9/2) is the heavy favorite to win the PGA Championship at Valhalla. Adam Scott (11/1) is the second favorite, and Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia are both at 16/1.

Tiger Woods is in the mix at 33/1, but everyone is still in the dark about his ability to tee it up after suffering a back injury on Sunday.

My sleeper pick is Gary Woodland at 100/1. He hits the ball a mile, and has put together a solid season with four top-10s. J.B. Holmes is another sleeper at 100/1. He is from Kentucky, and won the Wells Fargo earlier this year.
