When last played at Southern Hills in 2007, just five players finished under par and Tiger Woods (-8) was the winner. But since then, the course was restored in 2018 with an overhaul and significantly added length.

The truly classic course mixes the old with the new, and golf’s best players face an 18-hole challenge that plays 450 yards longer than it did in 2007. The par 70 design now stretches to 7,556 yards with just two par 5s, and both playing over 630 yards.

3 Early Bets to Win 2022 PGA Championship

With power in play and length having an advantage, here are three players to bet when wagering on the PGA Championship.

1. Jon Rahm (+1200)

The 2021 U. S. Open champion knows how to win on tough conditions and long courses. Rahm ranks No. 1 in Strokes Gained: Total, Tee-to-Green, Off-the-Tee and Ball Striking over his last 50 rounds. His Approach stats are top 15. Rahm ranks top 3 on Tour in driving distance averaging 316 yards per drive.

2. Viktor Hovland (+1800)

An elite Ball Striker and Approach player whose stats rank top 4 on Tour over his last 50 rounds. Hovland is going to break through with a major win soon. He's a consistent contender and has the length and GIR game to put himself into position. Another player whose short game and putting is holding him back, but Hovland is already a 3-time PGA Tour winner and returns to the PGA Championship course in the state he starred in college at Oklahoma State.

3. Will Zalatoris (+3300)

A first PGA Tour win at a Major Championship? If his sub-par putting emerges, why not? Zalatoris is an elite Ball Striker and strong Tee-to-Green player, ranking top 3 on Tour in both stats his last 50 rounds. Add in top 15 in Off-the-Tee and Approach, and this talented golfer can contend in a Major again as he did in 2021 finishing second at The Masters and T8 at the PGA Championship.
