The cut line at the 2018 PGA Championship has been set, and the remaining field projects to be wide-open heading into the final two rounds. After a rain delay pushed the conclusion of the second round back to Saturday morning, there will be some players who will be playing 25+ holes of golf on Saturday — and several of them are legitimate contenders to win the fourth major championship of the 2018 PGA Tour season.

Tiger Woods (-4), Jason Day (-5), Rickie Fowler (-8), Pat Perez (-6), and Justin Thomas (-6) were all forced to finish their respective second rounds on Saturday morning, and they all trail current leader, Gary Woodland, who enters the weekend at 10-under par for the tournament.

That said, here is a look at the top contenders heading into the final two rounds of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

Odds courtesy of Sportsbook.ag as of August 11, 2018.

Rickie Fowler (+500)

This may be Fowler’s best chance yet at getting the major championship monkey off his back. If he can avoid disastrous holes and continue to play well with his irons, Fowler may be able to finally get it done on Sunday at a major.

Brooks Koepka (+425)

Koepka is quickly earning a reputation as arguably the best big tournament golfer on the PGA Tour. The 2017 and 2018 U.S. Open champion carded an outstanding 7-under, 63 in the second round, and will enter the weekend at 8-under par — two strokes off the lead. As he has proven more than once, Koepka knows how to win on Sundays and thrives on big stages.

Dustin Johnson (+400)

We may sound like a broken record here, but Johnson is the best golfer in the world when he is focused and things are clicking. He enters the weekend at 7-under par, and looks like a man who is laser-focused on winning his second career major title.

Other notable names to watch:

  • Gary Woodland (+675)
  • Justin Thomas (+950)
  • Kevin Kisner (+1050)
  • Jason Day (+1700)
