Red-hot Rose headlines 36/1 US PGA 3-ball accumulator

The final golfing major of the year is a matter of hours away, so the last two chances to land a 3-ball accumulator cannot be passed up.

Ladbrokes News has thrown together a fivefold worth around 36/1 for the opening day of the US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, with Justin Rose the star attraction in a multiple of minnows (ish):

Hideki Matsuyama to beat Johan Kok and Brendan Steele @ 4/6

The Japanese star didn’t have the best of warm ups for the tournament, finishing 37th in the Bridgestone Invitational, but has been a consistent performer throughout 2015.

Finishing inside the top 20 in all of the year’s other three majors shows his pedigree and the 23-year-old has shot sub-70 in four of his last six opening rounds.

Robert Streb to beat Byeong-Hun An and Russell Henley @ 11/8

The Oklahoma native continued his purple patch of form with a solo fifth at the Bridgestone and has four straight opening-round scores of 68 or better to his name.

Streb made nine consecutive cuts on the PGA Tour before heading to Wisconsin, during which time he has recorded three top-five finishes.

Justin Rose to beat Brandt Snedeker and Geoff Ogilvy @ 10/11

Rose arrives for the US PGA having recorded a recent form line of T6, T4 and T3 in his last three starts.

He’ll hope to continue his progression with a win at Whistling Straits and will set about it with a strong opening round. His last two first rounds were a 66 at the Quicken Loans National and 67 at the Bridgestone.

Danny Lee to beat Branden Grace and Tony Finau @ 6/4

Another player flying high on confidence after a run of superb results, Lee will surely be too hot for Grace and Finau to handle after striding to top-six finishes in four of his last five starts.

Aside from the recent Open Championship, where he was cut, his last six five opening rounds have all been phenomenal, shooting no higher than 68.

David Lingmerth to beat Sang-Moon Bae and Kevin Streelman @ 1/1

The Swede should be far shorter than evens here considering he has finished solo third and tied-sixth in the last two tournaments.

Has not shot more than 70 in any of his last six opening rounds.
