Golf Best Bets – PGA Championship Round 1 Three-Ball Betting Tips 2024

Dean Burmester

We break down the best three-ball markets for Round 1 of the second major of the year, the PGA Championship from Valhalla.

Best Bet

Dean Burmester
Group 24

Burmester is a great play to win his three-ball with his length off the tee. This is an easy group. He won on the LIV circuit in March. He has been playing exceptionally well and tends to start fast.

Next Best

Matt Wallace
Group 5

This group is essentially a two-ball between Ryan Fox and Matt Wallace with Josh Speight a PGA club pro. Fox is enjoying a good first year on the PGA Tour but Wallace is playing sensational golf notably ranking 6th on the PGA Tour for Par 5 Scoring. Has nice form on the correlation courses.

Value Bet

Stephen Jaeger
Group 6

Valhalla is a big boy golf course and being long off the tee is critical so that will suit Stephen Jaeger, who is a recent winner on the PGA Tour. He ranks 10th in Driving Distance while he has Top 25 finishes in the 2023 Memorial, the 2023 St Jude and the 2023 Honda, all key guides.

Longshot Bet

Nicolai Hojgaard
Group 34

Hojgaard has really risen up the ranks this year and was right in the mix deep into Sunday at Augusta. He is long off the tee and notable that he has made the cut in his last four majors, finishing Top 25 in his last two. Fancy he has been undervalued here.
