Tiger Woods Leads PGA Championship Betting

By: Brian Blessing | Tuesday, August 7, 2012

The final major of the season tees off Thursday in South Carolina where the 2012 PGA Championship gets underway at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course.

Kiawah Island could prove to be a daunting challenge, playing over 7,000 yards with winds potentially howling off the Atlantic Ocean. What drama lies in store on the back nine Sunday? We saw Adam Scott collapse with the Claret jug firmly in his grasp at The Open Championship. Jim Furyk has given away the U.S. Open and the Bridgestone Invitational in a seven week span.

Tiger Woods is the 7/1 favorite this week. He’s constantly the topic of discussion as to whether he’s back or not. Suffice it to say, he’s in a neck and neck battle with Jason Dufner for Player of the Year honors.

Speaking of Dufner, 25/1 is a juicy price for arguably the most consistent player on tour.

Kiawah Island has a links feel to it, which certainly enhances the chances of several European players. If you haven’t gone broke yet playing Lee Westwood, 20/1 would be your reward this week. Graeme McDowell contended in the U.S. and British Opens and is listed at 35/1.

For those looking to hit the home run, bomb prices exist on players like Martin Laird (100/1), Kyle Stanley (150/1), former PGA Champ Y.E. Yang (150/1) and Brandt Snedeker (80/1)
