All eyes are on returning Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth at the PGA Championship, but Louis Oosthuizen is the sneaky odds — and best bet if you’re looking to make some money. With Spieth having won two of the first three majors, he comes in at a Tiger-Woods-circa-2000-like 5-to-1. McIlroy, the world #1 and defending champ, is second at 9-to-1.
But former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is 33-to-1, even after his stellar performances at the British Open in July and the US Open in June. (Oosthuizen made the 3-way playoff at the British, but couldn’t close.) Last time Oosthuizen performed so well at the British Open was 2010, when he won it. That year the PGA Championship was held, as it is this year, at Whistling Straits. Oosthuizen couldn’t parlay his Open victory back in 2010, missing the cut. But he’s playing as well as ever right now — taking second not just in the British Open but in the 2015 US Open too. If it weren’t for Jordan Spieth (who’s a total of 37 under in this year’s first three majors), Louis Oosthuizen might be king.
