2022 PGA Championship: Players, Odds, Favorites

There are 156 players in the field at this year’s PGA Championship, which is taking place in Tulsa. Oddsmakers have pegged Jon Rahm and 2022 Masters champ Scottie Scheffler as favorites to win the tournament, along with Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa.

Last year’s champ Phil Mickelson is skipping the event, following controversial comments he made about the PGA Tour and a Saudi-backed golf league. This is the second straight major Mickelson has pulled out of, following the Masters last month.

The PGA Championship is the second of four major men’s tournaments in the association. As with the other majors, PGA champs automatically get to play in the other three majors (Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, and The Open Championship) and are entered into subsequent PGA Championships for life.

It’s not just bragging rights either – the PGA Championship promises some big money, with a total purse of $12 million.

Live stream the PGA Championship online free with a 7-day free trial to Paramount+ here.
