The 2020 PGA Championship begins play on Thursday at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, bringing about the long awaited first major championship of the golf season. After a delay of nearly 3 months due to its shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the biggest events that pro golf has to offer had to be put on hold.
In accordance with the other majors, winning the PGA gains privileges for players that improve their career security. Every year, the PGA champions are automatically invited to play in the other 3 majors – Masters Tournament, U.S. Open and The Open Championship. The PGA Championship is the only one of the 4 majors that is exclusively for professional players.
While fans will not be in attendance due to the worsening pandemic conditions, the star studded field is absolutely loaded as 95 of the top 100 players in the Official World Golf Rankings are gearing up to contend for the Wanamaker Trophy at Harding Park this week.

Bet365 PGA Offer
Now you can get upto £100 in credit when betting on the PGA championship. This is the Bet365’s exclusive offer for the new customers.
Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas are the two competitors who look a cut above the rest of the contenders at the 2020 PGA Championship. Koepka is the back to back defending champion at this event, winning thrilling battles at Bethpage Black in 2019 and Bellerive Country Club in 2018 to secure 2 of his 4 career major titles.
The 30 year old is now in position to accomplish an exceedingly rare threepeat at the PGA Championship, it has only been done once before and nearly a century ago at that. Should Koepka get the job done, he would later go on to join Walter Hogan as the only golfer to win this major 3 years in a row and the first to do so since the stroke play era began in 1958.
Koepka shot a blistering opening round 62 and finished tied for second at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational last week, which is his strongest performance of the season. If anyone is capable of usurping Koepka at Harding Park this weekend, it will be Justin Thomas.
Thomas, the last player besides Koepka to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy after winning at Quail Hollow in 2017, is arguably playing better golf than anyone in the world right now and his odds and fitness for this championship indicates as much.
