2012 PGA Championship Odds: Tiger Woods Remains The Early Favorite

Tiger Woods has not won a major PGA Tour event since 2008. He has struggled to maintain consistent play and although he has won three tournaments in 2012, those are his only three wins in the past three years. Regardless, Woods will enter the 2012 PGA Championship as the odds-on favorite to win.

The Championship will begin on Thursday and is Woods' last chance to win a major in 2012. He will need to perform much better than he has in the previous three major tournaments this year. Close behind Woods in the odds to win is Rory McIlroy, who has also had a multitude of struggles in 2012. Both golfers are always a threat to win, of course, which is part of the reason why they remain a favorite of the oddsmakers.

Here are the current odds to win it all at the 2012 PGA Championship:

Tiger Woods 8/1
Rory McIlroy 18/1
Luke Donald 18/1
Lee Westwood 20/1
Adam Scott 28/1
Jason Dufner 28/1
Justin Rose 28/1
Webb Simpson 33/1
Dustin Johnson 33/1
Louis Oosthuizen 33/1
Steve Stricker 33/1
Matt Kuchar 33/1
Keegan Bradley 33/1
Hunter Mahan 40/1
Bubba Watson 40/1
Phil Mickelson 40/1
Graeme McDowell 40/1
Bo Van Pelt 40/1
