PGA Championship 2011 Preview

The final major of the year is completely wide-open. After Darren Clarke took the Open, it's clear that anyone can rise to the occasion and steal a major from the rest of the pack.

Of course, Rory McIlroy will be gunning for his second major of the year, Luke Donald is trying to get his first major before he's ousted from the No. 1 ranking in the world, and Tiger Woods is lurking in the field, starving for a victory.

Even so, this thing isn't in the bag for anyone. Phil Mickelson narrowly missed victory at the Open and could make a resurgence. There is really no telling what's going to transpire, which makes this major the most highly anticipated of the year.

We've already seen one of the most memorable majors ever when McIlroy put forth a historic performance at the US Open. The PGA Championship has a lot to live up to, but with so much ambiguity swirling around the tournament, it's going to be must-see television.

Will this major, like the other three this year, produce a first-time major winner? The top of the world's golf rankings is riddled with elite players in search of their first major. Perhaps this could be the tournament where they finally get over the hump.

Regardless of who walks away victorious, it's going to be an incredible tournament. We could look back on this tournament as the venue where Tiger turned it around or where McIlroy became the face of golf.

Whatever the case may be, you don't want to miss a second of the action.

The event runs from August 11th-14th.
