The PGA returns to Southern Hills CC for the 2022 PGA Championship. Since it’s a main, which means it’s time for my 2022 PGA Championship DraftKings Worth Picks.
As I mentioned in my prop bets article earlier this week, I do not assume this week’s winner will probably be a “shock”. I am undecided which chalky decide it will likely be, however I might wager that we see a well-liked play win this week.
That being mentioned, I completely love a number of the worth up and down the wage scale. And that is good as a result of I will be going with some chalky picks in my lineup in order that necessitates some worth.
Like most Main weeks, pricing is fortuitously pretty gentle this week. So we’ll maintain it easy and say that my “worth picks” need to have salaries of lower than $8k.
So I do know a variety of people like Max Homa this week, together with myself, however he is only a contact too costly for us to contemplate worth. However we’ll begin just a bit beneath him and make our means in the direction of the underside of the wage rung.
2022 PGA Championship DraftKings Worth Picks
Tony Finau ($7900)

If Finau is ever going to win a serious, I believe it will likely be a PGA Championship. He is made the reduce for the PGA Championship every of the final 5 years. Assume that is not spectacular? What if I informed you that none of Daniel Berger, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Justin Thomas, or Dustin Johnson may say that. Given his two most up-to-date PGA Championship finishes had been a T-8 and a T-4, I am shocked that DraftKings really has him priced this low.
Finau isn’t even taking part in poorly proper now. He is made 5 straight cuts, together with a T-2 just lately on the Mexico Open. He is thirty second in SG: Approaching the Inexperienced, one of many key metrics for this week. His placing has been horrible (do not look it up, you may be aghast as to how dangerous it has been), however with the very small greens this week I am hardly nervous. Finau is without doubt one of the most likable guys on Tour and I all the time root for him. However at this value, he does not even must win for us to get some worth out of him.
Talor Gooch ($7400)
That is what I mentioned about Gooch earlier this week:
“How are you going to not just like the native angle right here with Gooch, who was each born in Oklahoma and went to Oklahoma State? He needs to be very snug right here along with being an excellent statistical match. He’s twenty first in SG: Method the Inexperienced and even higher seventh in SG: Across the Inexperienced.” – 2022 PGA Championship Prop Bets Picks
All of that’s nonetheless clearly true. The one distinction value mentioning on this article is his tremendous low value, making him a discount. I’ll have a ton of shares of Gooch this week in my DFS lineups.
Alex Noren ($7000)
Noren is a participant I remorse omitting from my betting article earlier within the week. Sure, I’ve since made a number of bets on him. However he’s additionally a spectacular DFS play and I will probably be having fairly a number of shares of Noren as effectively. He’s coming in taking part in effectively, having completed twenty sixth or higher in six of his final 9 begins. That shouldn’t be shocking given that he’s gaining strokes this season in each measured class. He is thirty second in scoring common and eleventh in scrambling. His efficiency within the PGA Championship beforehand is uninspiring, however stable.
Nevertheless, I feel this week could possibly be one thing particular, given that he’s taking part in close to his alma mater, Oklahoma State. Yep, I might not have guessed that he went there both. However he did, and I feel the 39-year-old Swedish participant will give the locals one thing to cheer about.
Christiaan Bezuidenhout ($7000)
My common golf readers know this isn’t the primary time I’ve preferred Bezuidenhout. He and Noren are the identical value, so I might go along with Noren in case you are on the lookout for an upside play. However Bezuidenhout is a safer play. Once we begin to get into this vary, we’re trying merely for somebody to make the reduce. And Bezuidenhout is a cut-maker. He is made 13 of 15 cuts. He completed T-30 on the PGA Championship final 12 months and that appears like an affordable ceiling this week. He’s seventh on Tour in scrambling although, so if he will get into hassle on this course, I like his probabilities to get out of it.
Russell Knox ($6300)
Knox was a late addition to the event pool, however that also does not clarify him being ridiculously priced beneath $6500 and even $7000.

Knox is coming off a T-35 on the Wells Fargo Championship, having made the reduce along with a dozen different of his 19 PGA tournaments. However Knox frequently performs effectively within the massive tournaments, like his T-6 within the Gamers Championship in March.
However the motive I like Knox this week is he is without doubt one of the greatest gamers on Tour in terms of windy circumstances. And given the gusts anticipated for this week, I might be sure you have an entry with some wind-proof gamers. And that features Knox.
Rikuya Hoshino ($6300)
I am aware of Hoshino, as he has been tearing it up on the Japanese Tour. In his final 5 begins on that tour, he has completed no worse than T-7. That’s spectacular. However I might not have been conscious that he was even taking part in this week had it not been for Rob Bolton. What I recognize Bolton declaring nonetheless is that Hoshino has six paydays in 10 PGA begins, together with a career-best T26 on the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines the place he ranked second in Strokes Gained: Method-the Inexperienced and co-led in par-3 scoring.
Hoshino remains to be a dangerous play, however I like this as a GPP play. It is best to too.
