Best 2022 PGA Championship Predictions

A major surprise the model is claiming at the 2022 PGA Championship: Brooks Koepka, a four-time major champion and one of the big favorites, stumbles in Southern Hills and finishes outside the top 10. Koepka was the last player to defend his title. with success in the PGA Championship, finishing at the top of the rankings in 2018 and 2019.

However, the two-time PGA Championship winner has struggled a lot in 2021-22. In fact, Koepka has already missed the cut six times this season, including the Masters. Koepka’s issues can be directly attributed to his accuracy off the tee. It ranks 170th in driving accuracy percentage (54.18), which could cause major problems for Southern Hills. He’s not a good pick to win it all and there are far better values ​​in the 2022 PGA Championship field.

Another surprise: Will Zalatoris, a 35-1 long shot, is having a good run for the title. He is a target for anyone looking for a huge salary. The 25-year-old was a star at Wake Forest, but after struggling at Q School he had to rely on Monday qualifying and sponsor exemptions to make his way onto the Korn Ferry Tour. He also had to obtain special temporary membership status on the PGA Tour during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, he quickly established himself as one of golf’s most talented young players and is capable of crushing courses from tee to green. Zalatoris ranks second on the PGA Tour in shots won on approach (1.048), eighth in strokes won off the tee (.631) and first in strokes won from tee to green (1.767). So far, he hasn’t been fazed by the pressures of golf’s major championships, finishing in the top 10 in four of the six majors he’s played as a professional.
