Though it will almost certainly be upstaged by the final days of the 2012 London Olympics, sports fans will have to make room in their viewing schedules this weekend for the 94th PGA Championship. The tournament will be held at Kiawah Island Golf Resort's Ocean Course, the first time a major has been held at the stunning South Carolina golf course.
The PGA Championship will offer several interesting storylines. Webb Simpson returns to his first major after his U.S. Open win, Keegan Bradley plays to defend his surprise win at the 2011 Championship and Phil Mickelson attempts to stop the bleeding after several disastrous performances.
Handicappers are weighing in with their opinions on who stands the best chance of winning at Kiawah. Tiger Woods is the favorite, viewed as more than twice as likely as Luke Donald and Lee Westwood to win the title. Of the top 50 ranked golfers in the world, 41 are handicapped at 100/1 or better. The remaining golfers are all part of "the field," which is handicapped at 7/1.
