2014 PGA Championship Odds Top American

rickie fowler swingThe 2014 PGA Championship gets underway, this Thursday August 7th, from the Jack Nicklaus designed Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. The best American golfers will be there, but the biggest question entering the PGA Championship is, Will Tiger Woods even show up at Valhalla? After withdrawing from the WGC-Firestone after tweaking his back last week, it appears as if he may not even get a chance at his 15th major title. With no Tiger as the top American in this Major, Sportsbook is offering who will be the Top American come Sunday? Sportsbook has Rickie Fowler at 9/1 to finish as Top American. Check out the other American contenders and be sure to check out all this week’s PGA Championship Odds.

Rickie Fowler (9/1) has finished T5, T2, T2 in the first three majors of the year. His work with Butch Harmon has translated to incredible success this year and has Fowler in the conversation as the best American golfer in the world right now. This is the perfect time for Fowler to break through for his second career win.

Phil Mickelson (11/1) season have been largely forgettable. He’s missed cut, tie for 28th and tie for 23rd at three majors in 2014. These results in Majors are indicative of irrelevance at Valhalla. But an eight-under 62 over the final Bridgestone 18 might mean a timely return to form for a major veteran.

Matt Kuchar (12/1) is one of the most consistent players. He leads the Tour in top-10 finishes with 10 and just missed another with a T-12 at the WGC-Bridgestone last weekend. He has six top 10s in majors during the past five years, including a T-10 in the 2010 PGA. It will be his first trip to Valhalla but is on a good path heading into the year’s final major and the course should suit his game.

Jim Furyk (14/1) hasn’t won in four years and seven times in a row he hasn’t converted a 54-hole lead. But there are plenty more reasons to like his game at Valhalla, a place he finished T-72 in 2000 but had a successful week during the ’08 Ryder Cup. Has five top-10s in his last nine starts, was PGA runner-up last year and is already a lock for the Ryder Cup team.

Jordan Spieth (18/1) is a top young American who will break through at a major championship sooner or later and with his impeccable short game it could come at Valhalla. He’s never played a tournament on the course but should like the Kentucky Bluegrass and the newly renovated greens. He was T-2 at the Masters and also had a top-20 finish at the U.S. Open. He missed the cut last year in his first PGA.

Brandt Snedeker (22/1) is a guy that has been around in major championships but has yet to finish it off on Sunday. He has been trending upwards this summer and is coming off a solid performance at the Bridgestone Invitational. He is still a good putter and ranks in the top 25 for the all-important strokes gained putting. If he can hit fairways off the tee and roll some putts, he could join Dufner as a first time major winner.
