Viktor Hovland PGA Championship Prediction 2023
Viktor Hovland's talent is unquestioned. It seems the only things holding him back from near-elite status and major wins are his short game and around-the-green stats and play. Hovland has lost strokes around the green in nine straight events, yet he's still posted three top-20 finishes and three more top-10s.

Hovland has not factored into his two recent tournaments, but the 25-year-old Norwegian star's top-10 finishes in the 2023 Arnold Palmer Inv, Players Championship and The Masters show he can rise up in the biggest events against the strongest fields.
While he has yet to finish top-25 in three PGA Championship appearances, Hovland's game fits pretty well at Oak Hill if he can work his way around the greens and treacherous sand bunkers. His putting on bentgrass is better, and Hovland's Par 4 efficiency on longer holes is solid with his iron play from 150-200 yards ranking well. Viktor Hovland's first top-20 finish (+130) at the PGA Championship is within reach after finishing in the top 10 six times this season.
