The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook released the odds for winning the PGA Championship. It’s not too surprising who the heavy favorite is.

Apparently, narrowly missing out on a Grand Slam after the British Open win this past week hasn’t hurt Spieth’s stock too much. That could be because history is on his side, the New York Times explains:
Winning two of the first three majors, as Spieth has, is not an extremely rare feat, though those who have done it have almost all been among the game’s best players.
It also appears that bettors haven’t given up on Dustin Johnson, despite his putting woes in the secnod two days on the Old Course at St. Andrews. Rory McIlroy has the best odds outside of Spieth, despite missing the British Open after injurying himself while playing soccer with friends.
