Tomorrow, the world's top players will face what, according to, is the USA's toughest golf course as they play for the win at the year's final major: the 94th edition of the PGA Championship.

The difficulty of the very long and windy Ocean Course at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina, promises to keep the "no lead is safe" trend going forward.

To put the length of this course in perspective, consider that at 7,676 yards, the Ocean Course is 200 yards longer than Augusta National, 450 yards longer than Olympic and 540 yards longer than Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

Also, of all the majors in recent times, the PGA Championship has attracted the strongest field. This week, the world's top 108 players are all scheduled to compete.

Still, if the trend that has been the norm of the past 16 majors continues, we could be in line for another surprise winner, who would most likely come and snatch the win in the final hole or extra holes.

The last 16 majors have had 16 different champions and that is the longest streak since the Masters began in 1934.

Will that streak continue?

Let's take a quick look at the winning odds—according to—and recent play for the world's top 20 players in the official World Golf Rankings.
