USPGA betting could be tough this year, with the bookies offering very short odds on the likes of Jordan Spieth (6/1) and Jason Day (12/1), so here we take a look at some longshots who could come in

USPGA betting can be tough, but there are lots of patterns you can look out for to steer you in the direction of potential outsiders.

From course specialists like Bubba Watson (16/1), to in-form men with a pedigree for links golf like Dustin Johnson (16/1), there are trails that can lead to some great value bets.

Both those men are a little too shortly priced to make it into this USPGA betting feature, however we’ve managed to find five contenders who were all priced outside 50/1 on oddschecker.com at the time of writing, and who could contend at Whistling Straits…

Shane Lowry (55/1)

Despite the biggest win of his career on Sunday at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, the likeable Irishman is still a massive 55/1 with some firms. Before holding off Bubba Watson and Justin Rose, Lowry had already notched up a T6 at the BMW PGA Championship and a T9 at the US Open this year. Lowry grew up playing links style golf, and his short game is among the best in the world.

In the video below, he shares his practice and set-up secrets.
