PGA Championship Odds 2012: Tiger Woods Once Again The Favorite

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy remain two of the biggest names in the world of golf. Heading into Thursday's opening round of the 2012 PGA Championship, they will be at the top of the odds list to win the tournament. Neither player has won a major thus far in 2012 and McIlroy in particular has looked exceptionally shaky, but their ability and name recognition definitely still carry cachet with the oddsmakers.

Woods will need to return to championship form in short order. He has not won a major since 2008 and this is his last chance to pick one up in 2012 and prevent that drought from carrying over into a fifth straight year. It is within his capability; the only question is whether he will be able to execute.

Here are the current odds to win it all at the 2012 PGA Championship:

Tiger Woods 8/1
Rory McIlroy 18/1
Luke Donald 18/1
Lee Westwood 20/1
Adam Scott 28/1
Jason Dufner 28/1
Justin Rose 28/1
Webb Simpson 33/1
Dustin Johnson 33/1
Louis Oosthuizen 33/1
Steve Stricker 33/1
Matt Kuchar 33/1
Keegan Bradley 33/1
Hunter Mahan 40/1
Bubba Watson 40/1
Phil Mickelson 40/1
Graeme McDowell 40/1
Bo Van Pelt 40/1
Jim Furyk 40/1
