With additional each-way places available from most bookies, the scope for grabbing a piece of the each-way action with a 3-figure chance this week is as good as ever, and there’s plenty of value to be found if you dig deep enough into the market at Southern Hills.
Last year’s US PGA Championship was a case in point that longer-priced players can place, or even win at the Majors.
Phil Mickelson was available at a whopping 250/1 with some bookies last year before capturing his second Wanamaker Trophy and 6th Major title in total. In addition to Lefty, 600/1 shots Padraig Harrington and Harry Higgs both finished in a tie for 4th place in 2021, rewarding each-way backers with a huge return.

As ever, the each-way terms available from some bookmakers this week make for an interesting dilemma – do you stick rigidly to fairly standard each-way terms and grab a top price on an outsider, or do you accept a reduced price in exchange for more favourable each-way terms?
Personally I’ve opted to take a balanced approach with 3 selections using different price/combinations but, as ever, do check the odds of the key bookmakers before placing your bet to suit yourself.
