5 sleeper picks for the KPMG Women's PGA Championship feat. Rose Zhang

The KPMG Women's PGA Championship is this weekend. The third Major tournament of the women's golf schedule has officially arrived, starting Thursday, June 20. The world's best golfers will head to Sahalee Country Club in Washington. There will be exciting competition all weekend, but only one golfer can claim the crown.

Here are five sleeper picks for the KPMG Women's PGA Championship:

5) Ruoning Yin

Ruoning Yin is the third-best golfer in the world right now, as per the Rolex Rankings, but she is +3000 to win the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, according to ESPN BET. That doesn't rank in the top 10, so there's a disparity. This is where betting comes into play, since there's certainly some risk but she is a prime candidate that could be underrated by oddsmakers.


4) Charley Hull

Charley Hull is a bright talent on the LPGA Tour. She's one of the best out there, currently ranked eighth in the world. Despite that, she only has the 17th-best odds of winning. There's a disparity between her talent and the current odds of victory, so she could surprise oddsmakers this weekend. Bettors who pick her might be able to reap the rewards.


3) Hinako Shibuno

Hinako Shibuno is +10000 to win the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. She put together a wonderful outing at the last Major championship, though she came up a few strokes short of a win. Still, she's proven she can perform on the world's biggest stage, so she's a good dark horse candidate to take home the trophy this time.


2) Yuka Saso

Yuka Saso is being underrated by the oddsmakers for the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. She is +4500 to win, a shockingly low number for someone who won the last Major.

For example, Xander Schauffele's odds rose to second-best before the US Open after he won the PGA Championship, so it's surprising to see Saso so low. Not only did she win a Major, but it was her second Major and yet, she's still not one of the favorites.


1) Rose Zhang

Rose Zhang is one of the most talented golfers in the world, and she might be a little underrated in the latest odds for the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. Per the aforementioned source, she is +2200 to win. This may be driven by the fact that she missed the cut and shot 11 over par at the US Women's Open, but she's due for a bounceback and could surprise and win.
