After entering the week as one of the three co-favorites to win this week’s PGA Championship, Brooks Koepka on Thursday staked himself to the Day 1 lead at Bethpage Black and took over as the new solo favorite for sports bettors.
Koepka at 7 under is now 5/4 at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, followed by Dustin Johnson, 1 under, at 10/1 and Tommy Fleetwood, 3 under, at 12/1.
