Need to know where and when to watch the 2012 PGA Championship? Check here for dates, times, live stream and viewing information from this year's major coverage.

2012 marks the 94th edition of the storied PGA Championship. Each year, the championship is hosted by the best golf courses that the United States has to offer.

This year, a first-time host was chosen. The swirling and shifting winds of the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort will have the honor. In its latest rankings in 2011, Golf Digest ranked the Ocean Course as the 26th-greatest course in the U.S. and the fourth-best public course.

It also has an element of difficulty to it.

“Being seaside, the wind can change. The wind comes out of different directions. There’s so much room out there, but as soon as the wind starts blowing 20, 30 miles an hour, there’s not much room,” tournament favorite Tiger Woods said (via the Post and Courier).

Woods, Vijay Singh, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson and other past PGA Championship winners will join the 108 best golfers in the world in battling it out at Kiawah for the coveted Wanamaker Trophy.

The lights don’t get any brighter, as the biggest stars in the golf world bring their talents to the United States for the yearly PGA Championship.

Players to Watch

Tiger Woods

Woods has recovered from personal drama and injuries and has begun to climb back into contention as of late. He’s already won three total tournaments this year, and he's starting to play better and put the pieces of his game back together.

While he has won four PGA Championships in the past, the Ocean Course is a whole new beast for the golf great. Luckily for him, he got in some practice rounds on the course prior to the Bridgestone International tournament.

If the betting odds favorite (6/1 at BOVADA) can pull out a win at Kiawah, he will secure his first major championship since his 2008 U.S. Open victory.


Keegan Bradley

During his surprise PGA Championship victory a year ago, he nailed one of the best shots of the year with an incredible 35-foot birdie putt on the 17th green.

That shot propelled him into a playoff with Jason Dufner that he ultimately won.

Unfortunately for the youngster, the course has shifted to one of the more difficult course in the world in the the Ocean Course at Kiawah.


Lee Westwood

The English golfer known as “Westy” is best known for almost having won several major tournaments. He has two second-place and four third-place finishes in the major championships.

In 2010, he came in second at both the Masters and the Open Championship. He’s also played well enough for third-place finishes at the 2009 PGA Championship and the U.S. Open in both 2008 and 2011.

This year, he finished in third place at the 2012 Masters to round up his string of near major tournament wins.

Westwood has the second-best odds to win the tournament at 14/1 (BOVADA), narrowly ahead of Luke Donald (16/1), Rory McIlroy (16/1) and Phil Mickelson (20/1).
