- The US PGA is the second of golf's four Majors on the 2023 calendar
- The 105th edition of the event will be played at Oak Hill Country Club, New York.
- Recommended bets:
- Tony Finau to win and each-way
- Xander Schauffele to win and each-way
- Gary Woodland to win and each-way
- Rickie Fowler to win and each-way

Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler are jostling for market leadership going into the US PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club, New York.

Rahm, 15/2 with LiveScore Bet, is seeking to follow up his Masters victory with another Major triumph. The Spaniard is looking for the third leg of a career Grand Slam of Majors. 

Meanwhile, Scheffler, who finished fifth in the AT&T Byron Nelson last week, can be backed at 15/2 with LiveScore Bet for US PGA glory.

Popular Finau can dazzle the locals

Tony Finau has been in relentlessly consistent form this year, finishing no worse than 31st place in any of his 12 tournaments, and the giant Utahn appeals at 20/1 with LiveScore Bet for the US PGA.

Finau has shed his nearly-man tag by winning four PGA Tour titles in the last 10 months and his latest success came after a duel with Rahm in Mexico. Confidence is coursing through his veins and he can bolster his excellent Majors record this week

The 33-year-old was fourth in the 2020 US PGA Championship and can go even better at Oak Hill on a tough track which lends itself to his approach-play class.

Schauffele seems rock-solid option

Xander Schauffele, like Finau, has been strongly threatening a first Major title. They both have 10 Major top-10s on their record and the 14/1 with LiveScore Bet about Schauffele winning the US PGA seems a solid investment given his liking for difficult assignments.

Schauffele was second in the 2018 Open, then second in the 2019 Masters, and he has been in the picture in both of the two recent US Opens played in New York State.

Back in New York this week, Schauffele can use his laserlike iron-shots to get into contention. Lots of long irons will be required on approach at Oak Hill and he is a master at using those tools.

Woodland getting back to his best

Gary Woodland knows he can get the job done when given a chance at a Major

A Major champion being offered at 66/1 with LiveScore Bet can get into the thick of things. Gary Woodland, who won the 2019 US Open at Pebble Beach, has been hitting his ball superbly in recent weeks and was 14th in the Masters last month.

Woodland, sixth in the 2018 US PGA and eighth in the 2019 edition, is 10th on the PGA Tour statistics for both strokes-gained off the tee and strokes-gained on approach.

Fowler may end victory drought

Rickie Fowler remains one of the most popular players on the PGA Tour and the former world number four has been giving his army of fans great encouragement in recent weeks. 

Fowler, who can be backed at 50/1 with LiveScore Bet, has posted eight top-20s on the PGA Tour this year.

The Californian is back inside the world's top 50 and looks ready to contend for Majors again. He can boast eight top-fives in Majors, including three second places.
