However, plenty of longshots are still available on the scorecard. With Koepka only two strokes back, Johnson will have to remain focused to ensure the back to back champion doesn’t pass him. Even still, the number of well-known golfers lurking within three strokes of Johnson exceeds double digits.
One Stroke Back At -8
Only Cameron Champ (+1100) and Scottie Scheffler (+1200) are one stroke back from Dustin Johnson in their quest to win the PGA Championship.
Scheffler will be paired with Johnson as Champ will be paired with Collin Morikawa 10 mins earlier at 4:40 p.m. EST. Champ has his positioning from shooting a 64 in Round 2 – tied for the lowest round of the weekend thus far.
With a bogey to finish Round 3 (after a string of three consecutive birdies), it will be interesting to see if Scheffler gets wrapped up in thoughts about his error in entering the final round tied with Johnson to start.
The -7 Trio
Here is where things get interesting. This trio of golfers have amazing odds for their position and the accolades supporting them as well.
For Koepka (+450), his abilities are well-known, as the aforementioned back to back champion has posted three straight sub-70 rounds to get to his position.
The youngster in Collin Morikawa (+1000) also has three rounds in the 60s to his name and furthers his case after his performance just 24 hours ago.

At +1000 odds, a small investment on the PGA Championship odds wouldn’t be the worst choice.
Paul Casey (+1600) wraps up this trio, who has steadily performed throughout the tournament. Scoring a -2, -3, and -2, respectively, Casey has shown what consistency can do for a golfer on a major stage. While the odds are looking supporting, some bettors would likely prefer a play from those yet another stroke back.
The Six At -6
In this group, famous names are held here that will certainly get plenty of action at the legal sports betting sites. Bryson DeChambeau (+1400) is by far the favorite of this group, and after hit putting display, it is hard not to see why.
Daniel Berger (+1800) and Tommy Fleetwood (+2000) lead the pack after DeChambeau, who have both shown excellent rounds throughout the PGA’s comeback.
Further back, first-round leader Jason Day (+2500) sits tied at -6 but has seen his rounds get worse as each day has passed. As for Justin Rose (+2800) and Tony Finau (+2800), both golfers have shown flashes, but haven’t done anything too impressive to signify the confidence needed to bet on them.
All in all, the field is wide open and plenty of golfers are well within the distance to knock Dustin Johnson off of the leaderboard. With a few strokes as his margin, many won’t be surprised to see DJ win the entire event but those longshot bettors who enjoy watching the story unfold will certainly be rooting for a comeback victory on the final day of the PGA Championship.
