PGA Championship 2011: 5 Favorites and 5 Longshots to Win Wanamaker

Is this the weekend where an American golfer finally breaks the string of losses in a major golf championship?

As a writer and fan, I sure hope so.

An American golfer has not won a major championship since Phil Mickelson got his third Masters win in 2010 over Lee Westwood.

Since then, there has been a run by foreign-born players who have dominated men's golf.

But at the PGA at Highlands, the string has a good chance to be broken.

Of the top 21 players who finished at the Open Championship, 12 were Americans. Mickelson and Dustin Johnson tied for second overall behind winner Darren Clarke. Players like Zach Johnson, Rickie Fowler and David Toms all finished in the top 10. This could also be a chance at redemption for Mickelson, who is out to prove he can still win another major.

And then, there is Tiger Woods.

Can he put together four solid rounds and remain in contention this week?

There is only one way to find out? And it all starts today.
