Phil Mickelson was a gallant second at Troon and his odds of 22/1 (William Hill) for this week’s PGA Championship look fantastic from an each-way point-of-view.

The Open Championship illustrated that the left-hander is in excellent form and Lefty also won the tournament in 2005, the last time it was held at Baltusrol. The New Jersey course seems suited to a 46-year-old who shows now sign of slowing down.

Henrik Stenson has also been a market mover after his exploits in Scotland and is now a 16/1 chance with bet365, although the front three in the betting are the same as before the Open.

Dustin Johnson is an 8/1 poke with Ladbrokes, while Rory McIlroy is 9/1 with BetVictor. The Northern Irishman hasn’t quite hit the straps in 2016 although remains a dangerous competitor.

Perhaps better value comes from backing Jason Day, with the Australian a 10/1 chance (Paddy Power) and his recent major record regularly sees him challenging for honours.

Jordan Spieth has become something of a forgotten man since the Masters, despite the amazing 2015 that the young American enjoyed. Odds of 14/1 (Sky Bet) are as big as he’s been for eighteen months in a major tournament.

There are golfers at bigger odds that could be worth a nibble. JB Holmes arrives in great form and Sky Bet go 80/1 that he claims a first major title, while bet365 offer the same odds about Shane Lowry and he played particularly well at the US Open.

The inimitable Andrew Johnston is a 250/1 chance and the man known as Beef is enjoying a fabulous upward trajectory, although stronger European challenges may come from the likes of Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose.

Rose knows what is required to win a major tournament and bet365 offer 30/1 that the Englishman is smiling come Sunday in New Jersey.
