There still isn't a name on the PGA Tour that creates storylines like Tiger Woods. Caesars Sportsbook lists Woods as a 50-1 long shot in the 2022 PGA Championship odds, but he remains the largest liability for the betting industry. Woods is playing in his second PGA tournament since being injured in a car accident last February. He made the cut at the Masters last month, but should he be considered for your 2022 PGA Championship bets? World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is an 11-1 co-favorite with Jon Rahm at the top of the 2022 PGA Championship field. Who are the 2022 PGA Championship contenders you should back starting Thursday? Before locking in your 2022 PGA Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it's up almost $9,000 on its best bets since that point, nailing tournament after tournament.

At the 2022 Masters, McClure's model was all over Scottie Scheffler's first career major championship victory heading into the weekend. The model also nailed Tiger Woods' exact finishing position at Augusta National before the tournament started (47th). In addition, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2022 PGA Championship field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2022 PGA Championship leaderboard.

Model's top 2022 PGA Championship predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the PGA Championship 2022: Rory McIlroy, a 20-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles at Southern Hills and barely cracks the top 10. He is going on eight years without a major win, as his last victory came in the 2014 PGA Championship. McIlroy's title drought at major championships makes his low odds unbackable this week.

He has finished outside the top 30 in his past two appearances at the PGA Championship, including a tie for 49th last year. McIlroy has only placed in the top 10 once in his last seven tries at this event. He ranks near the bottom of the PGA Tour in birdies, so he does not have value at Southern Hills.

The model has also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 PGA Championship. The model has also examined Tiger Woods' chances at the 2022 PGA Championship. Woods will enter the second major of the year confident he can make noise. That's because Woods still holds the course record at Southern Hills. He fired a 63 in the second round of the PGA Championship in 2007, which tied the record for the lowest single-round score at a major championship.

Woods' familiarity with Southern Hills will play a factor in how he performs in just his second start after his horrific car accident. Woods is a long shot to win the PGA Championship 2022, according to oddsmakers, but his success at major championships and extensive knowledge of the course could be major X-factors. The model just locked in its Tiger Woods PGA Championship picks here.

How to make 2022 PGA Championship picks

The model is also targeting three golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.

Who will win the 2022 PGA Championship, which long shots will stun the golfing world, and where will Tiger Woods finish?
