Brooks Koepka has built a commanding lead in this year's PGA Championship as we head into the final round on Sunday.
Koepka walked off the 18th green of Bethpage Black 12-under par on Saturday evening, boasting a seven-stroke lead over a four-way tie for second at 5-under par. But his odds to win could be even more impressive than his lead.
Koepka is at -900 to win the PGA Championship with his next closest competitor being Dustin Johnson at +2400, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Johnson is one of the four tied at 5-under par.
Along with Johnson, at 5-under par, are Luke List (+9000), Harold Varner III (+12000) and Jazz Janewattananond (+16000). Hideki Matsuyama sits at 4-under par with +12000 odds to win the major.
While it would surprising to see Koepka suffer a massive meltdown on Sunday, anything can happen in the final round of a major at Bethpage Black.
