The 2021 PGA Championship starts Thursday from Kiawah Island, and the top golfers in the world will be in attendance. The 2021 PGA Championship field features former winners like Rory McIlroy, who fired a bogey-free Sunday and won by eight strokes at this very same venue nine years ago. Also among the top 2021 PGA Championship contenders will be Collin Morikawa, who fired a 13-under to win last year at TPC Harding Park and turned 24 just three months ago.
McIlroy is the 10-1 favorite according to the latest 2021 PGA Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while Morikawa is 22-1. Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm are 12-1 and near the top of the PGA Championship odds 2021. Before you lock in any 2021 PGA Championship picks or PGA Tour predictions, you need to see who golf insider sal Jhonson is backing.
A media legend and consummate golf insider, Johnson has a strong feel for which players have the momentum and how their games fit the courses.
Before Hideki Matsuyama won the Masters three weeks ago, Johnson made special mention of Spieth, Schauffele and Will Zalatoris as golfers to watch. He listed Spieth and Schauffele in his top three contenders and had Zalatoris as his top rookie. Zalatoris nearly caught Matsuyama and finished as runner-up, while Spieth and Schauffele tied for third.
