Would you like to win some big-time money on the 2011 PGA Championship? It is very difficult to predict the winner of any major championship, but the long shots offer huge payouts.
Players like Tiger Woods and Phil Michelson boast odds of 20/1 or better and are among the favorites. Even with decent odds on both, place your money elsewhere.
With that said, we'll dive into the top 10 long shots going into the 2011 PGA Championship.
Kyung-Tae Kim is only 24, but after a solid weekend at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, he has been put in the spotlight for the 2011 PGA Championship.
Kim shot a solid 10-under(-par) at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, which landed him tied for sixth.
What makes Kim such a long shot is the fact that he has never won a PGA Tour event. In fact, his sixth-place finish at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational was his first top-10 finish at a PGA Tour event.
Kim is the biggest long shot on this list and will have to replicate his performance at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational to have a chance.
Ryo Ishikawa is even younger than Kyung-Tae Kim at the age of 19. Stringing together four consistent days at the 2011 PGA Championship is a lot for a young kid.
Ishikawa had a solid weekend at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, shooting a 12-under(-par), which landed him a tie for fourth.
Ryo's top-10 finish at the WGC Bridgestone was his first of 2011 and only the second of his young career.
Ryo is still looking for his first PGA Tour win, although he fared well at the 2011 Masters, finishing tied for 20th.
Jim Furyk is the first one on this list that has actually won a major championship. In 2003 Furyk won the U.S. Open.
In 2011, however, Furyk is still looking for his first PGA Tour win. He does have two top-10 finishes in 2011.
Furyk shot decently at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, finishing at two-under(-par), tied for 23rd.
Furyk struggled this year at the U.S. Open, not even making the cut, which lands him as a long shot.
Justin Rose owns the most top-10 finishes thus far on this list. He has a total of three in 2011, but no wins yet.
Rose has never won a major championship before but did finish tied for ninth at the PGA Championship in 2008.
Rose put in a solid performance at the 2011 Masters, shooting five-under(-par). He barely missed the top 10 there, finishing tied for 11th.
Rose turned pro in 1998, and 2011could be the year he gets a major championship win.
Martin Laird is the first one on this list that has a 2011 PGA Tour win. He also has six top-10 PGA Tour finishes.
Laird finished tied for 11th this weekend at the Bridgestone Invitational at eight-under(-par).
Laird has never won a major championship, and his best finish at a PGA Championship was a tie for 48th in 2010.
Martin Laird is at the ripe age of 28 and could see a major championship come his way.
Hunter Mahan owns seven top-10 finishes in 2011, although he is still looking for his first win.
In Mahan's last six events, he has not finished better than 30th.
Mahan has never won a major championship but did finish in the top 10 three times in his career.
Mahan is 29 and should be close to his prime. The only question will be when will Mahan break through?
Matt Kuchar has the best odds on this list but falls short of the No. 1 spot.
Kuchar has eight top-10 finishes in 2011 but still doesn't have a win.
Kuchar has seen his results get better in the past couple of years. He has recorded his best finishes at the U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship in 2010.
Matt Kuchar is still looking for his first major championship win, but winning the 2011 PGA Championship will be no easy task.
Can you name the only major championship that David Toms won? Here's a hint: It was at the same golf course that the PGA Championship is being played at in 2011.
It was way back in 2001 at the PGA Championship. Both the 2001 and 2011 PGA Championships are stationed at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Toms has been somewhat consistent in 2011, recording five top-10 finishes and one victory.
Toms finished tied for ninth at nine-under(-par) at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
Can David Toms recreate the magic he had in 2001?
Bubba Watson owns two wins in 2011, neither of them being a major championship.
Watson is still looking for his first major championship win, although he did finish second at the PGA Championship in 2010.
Bubba finished 30th at the Open Championship and finished 21st at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
Watson is hungry for his first major championship, but will it come in 2011?
K.J. Choi has won one PGA Tour event thus far in 2011, while netting six top-10 finishes. He has also finished in the top 10 at the Masters.
Choi is still looking for his first major championship but had his best finish at any major championship in 2011 at the Masters with an eighth-place finish.
Choi's second-place finish at the AT&T National less than two months ago is just another reason why he can win the Wanamaker.
Choi struggled a bit at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, shooting a six-over(-par). If Choi can string together four consistent days at the PGA Championship, then he certainly has a shot to nab his first major championship.
