PGA Championship 2011: 10 Dream Pairings for Final Day

The first two rounds of the PGA Championship are in the books.

While there is still an entire third round to play on Saturday, it's never too early to look forward to Sunday.

More so than any of 2011's previous majors, this one is truly showing off the parity in the game. If you look at the top 10, you will see one player (Jim Furyk) with a career major win.

Branch out and look at the top 25. Only Furyk, Trevor Immelman, and Davis Love have a major. Even at that, none of those three have more than one and Immelman is the only player to have recorded his major win in the last five years.

So, many the biggest names don't appear to be serious factors this week. There is a very good chance that this will be first year since 2003 to have four new major winners.

But how can we make this final round interesting for everyone? Well, good golf is the best way to have that happen.

Beyond that, a few interesting pairings on Sunday wouldn't hurt. How many of us remember the show that Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods put on in 2009? They weren't the final pairing and neither man won, but at the time they were the two biggest names in golf and had six Green Jackets between them (they now have seven).

It was an event, and neither man disappointed.

With 18 holes to play before the final day, let's take a look ahead at some of the better pairings that we might see during the final round.

Before we do, know two things.

One: Most of the players listed are several shots behind the current leaders. While there are a few deviations, this list is meant to focus on guys who are not in contention that can serve as a good warm-up act for Sunday's leaders.

Two: This list is presented in no particular order.
