Going into Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship, there are six players within 2 shots of the lead — and none of them is named Scottie Scheffler.

Xander Schauffele (+240) and Collin Morikawa (+260) are tied for the lead at -15 with Sahith Theegala (+600) at -14, and Viktor Hovland (+750), Bryson DeChambeau (+600) and Shane Lowry (+1200) at -13.


Scheffler shot a round over par for the first time in 266 days (2-over-73) and dropped back to -7, making him +25000 on the DraftKings Sportsbook oddsboard.

Scottie Scheffler’s implosion is something I did not see coming Saturday, but who did? I made one bad (Scheffler +350) and one good (Collin Morikawa +500) play on the adjusted odds board Friday night. The demise of Brooks Koepka was disappointing and my opportunities to win are dwindling. With so many players who could win, it’s a bad idea to start spraying hedge bets all over the board because you can’t cover everything and can get burned.

It’s going to be a wild Sunday and I’ll probably get involved with live betting, if needed. Aside from Morikawa, I have pre-tournament shots with Bryson DeChambeau (28-1) and Justin Thomas (54-1), who needs a miracle. I have no idea how this tournament will play out and have nothing to recommend other than Knicks (-130) over Pacers.

While the reviews of Valhalla Golf Club have been mixed, as the course has played easier than anticipated, it has produced an outstanding leaderboard heading into Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship.

Xander Schauffele (+240) still has the lead, as he has had throughout, but he now has company after 54 holes with Collin Morikawa (+260) also at 15-under. Schauffele had managed to stay mistake-free until the 15th hole where he carded a double-bogey, just his second over-par hole of the tournament. He still leads the field for Greens In Regulation at 83.3% having hit 45 of 54 greens.

Sahith Theegala (+650) recovered from two bogeys on the front nine and shot 6-under over his last 10 holes to post 14-under.

Theegala will be paired with Shane Lowry (12/1), who matched Schauffele’s Thursday round of 62 courtesy of the best putting round of his career where he gained +5.54 strokes with the flat stick on Saturday.

Then, there’s Bryson DeChambeau (6/1), who chipped in for eagle on the Par 5 18th to pull to within two of the lead at 13-under. Despite losing -1.62 strokes on approach in Saturday’s third round, Bryson was 8-for-9 for Scrambling and will be in the mix on Sunday if his iron play returns to the form it had for the first two days.

Viktor Hovland (7/1)’s game has seemingly been lost all season, but he reunited with swing coach Joe Mayo, and it has seemingly awoken him from his slump. He is at 13-under along with DeChambeau and Lowry and just two strokes off the lead.

13 players are within five shots of the lead, and we did see some low rounds on Saturday with Lowry shooting 62 and Justin Rose (35/1), his playing partner, shooting 64, so a lot can happen tomorrow.

I am standing pat with Bryson DeChambeau at 28/1 pre-tournament. That chip-in at 18 could end up being the winning moment of this championship.

An exciting third round at the PGA Championship leaves us with a stacked leaderboard heading into Sunday. Xander Schauffle’s stumble at 15 on Saturday brought a lot more names into contention and allowed Collin Morikawa to tie him for the lead. Just two shots back is Shane Lowry who had a major record tying round of 62. 

This tournament is up for grabs, and even though there is immense talent at the top, I have some slight concerns with just about every golfer. So screw it, it’s called LONG SHOTS so I’ll add one more small outright heading into Sunday and take a 150-1 shot on Tony Finau. He was someone I liked and bet in other markets coming in, and his irons have been absolutely dialed in, his putting looks solid, he’s just struggling off the tee, which is usually the strongest part of his game. I already have some pre-tournament Top 10 on him at +500, but I would recommend at current odds as well. 

I also bet Justin Thomas Top 10 at +110. His return to his home state is clearly meaning a lot to him. He’s actually leading the field in SG: T2G. I have a hard time believing he’ll fall out of that Top 10 area. 

As far as fourth round matchups, only one for me so far. I bet Kurt Kitayama +115 > Will Zalatoris. I liked Kitayama before the tournament, he’s been playing decent, but it’s Zalatoris I’m looking to fade a bit as he’s really riding a hot putter and not much else has been great.
