The 66th KPMG Women’s PGA Championship will be held from June 25 to June 28, 2020, at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa. This event last year was as close as it could possibly get, which will certainly make Women’s PGA championship betting another exciting experience.

2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship Results
Last year at this event, not one person was safe with a lead. Across the leaderboard, there was an abundance of tying spots and very close finishes. For Women’s PGA championship betting odds, the favorite last year was Sung Hyun Park since she was the defending champion. She almost came out on top, just missing the championship by one stroke.
Hannah Green won the title, finishing at 9-under par, one stroke ahead of Park. Mel Reid and Nelly Korda finished in a tie for third place at 6-under, while Danielle Kang and Lizette Salas tied for fifth at 5-under.
Just one stroke back was a three-way tie for seventh place between Hyo Joo Kim, Inbee Park, and Mirim Lee, followed by a four-way tie for 10th between Lydia Ko, Ariya Jutanugarn, So Yeun Ryu and Megan Khang.
Top 10 LPGA Golfers
This is a unique list that I like to include to compare and contrast each player for the Women’s PGA Championship betting and how they stack up to the rest of the competition. These golfers have played consistently well enough to make the top 10 in the official world golf ranking list. I like to view this as a starting point for looking at the Women’s PGA Championship betting odds.
However, I would also argue that some players are better than others, and I would personally change a few around. But I believe this is as close as possible to determine the order of consistency among these ladies for the Women’s PGA Championship betting.
- Jin-Young Ko (Korea)
- Sung Hyun Park (Korea)
- Nelly Korda (USA)
- Nasa Hataoka (Japan)
- Minjee Lee (Australia)
- Jeongeun Lee6 (Korea)
- Brooke Henderson (Canada)
- Danielle Kang (USA)
- Lexi Thompson (USA)
- Ariya Jutanugarn (Thailand)
Top Picks To Win
- Green is the defending champion of this event and is currently ranked 23rd in the world according to the rankings. For her 2019 campaign, she had four top 10 finishes and two victories. I look for her to try her best to defend this one.
- Park was a favorite for the 2019 Women’s PGA Championship odds, coming in second place last time at this event. She is ranked the second-best golfer in the world. She has seven top 10 finishes and two victories for the year. She only lost by a stroke, and I am sure she wants to win this one back.
- Korda tied for third place last time. She is ranked the third-best golfer, according to the rankings. She has 12 top 10 finishes and two victories for her 2019 play so far. She was right on the edge of claiming this one. After losing by only a few strokes, I can see her wanting to try and come out on top for this go-round.
- Park tied for seventh place for this event last time. She is ranked the 13th-best golfer in the world. She has six top 10 finishes this year. She has the experience to put it all together and take hold of a tournament at any time.
- Jin-Young Ko tied for 14th place in last year’s tournament. She is the overall No. 1 golfer according to the rankings. At the moment, she has 12 top 10 finishes and four victories. Being on top of the rankings, it is hard to leave her off of this list. With her consistent level of play, I believe she could make a strong push for this event this time.
- Kim tied for seventh place at the last go-round. She is currently ranked 14th in the rankings. She has 12 top 10 finishes year to date. She seems to be right atop the leaderboards but not enough to be in the No. 1 spot. Could her luck possibly change?
Who Claims Victory?
With all of the talent presented at each event, how does one narrow the field down to see the Women’s PGA Championship odds?
Well, the one golfer that stands out to me is Park.
Park’s final round of play last time showed that she was motivated to try and take that trophy home. By being the second-best golfer in the world, her play is no joke, and she could take any event by storm if someone else is not playing their best.
Also, her high level of consistency gives me hope that she will be the winner of the 2020 Women’s PGA Championship.
