5 prop bets, position plays for Oak Hill

Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, is in the spotlight this week as the game’s best players are in town for the 2023 PGA Championship.

The PGA has delivered dramatic finishes for several years running, including Justin Thomas’ playoff win over Will Zalatoris at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year. It was Thomas’ second major win and second Wanamaker Trophy.

Scottie Scheffler, fresh off a top-five finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson, is the betting favorite at +700 followed closely by world No. 1 Jon Rahm (+750).

Here are five prop bets and position plays for the 2023 PGA Championship, starting with Max Homa to finish inside the top 20.
