2012 PGA Championship Odds: Tiger Woods Overwhelming Favorite at 8/1 Odds

Tiger Woods hasn't been Tiger Woods for quite some time. It has been four years since his last major championship at the 2008 U.S. Open, and it looks like the clouds have finally parted at the ray of sun is shining on Woods' odds.

Odds makers agree with Woods' recent play and have put him as a heavy favorite at 8-to-1 to win the 94th PGA Championship at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course in South Carolina.

The next closest are Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald at 18-to-1 each. Lee Westwood is the only other golfer at less than 20-to-1 odds. Everyday fan favorite Phil Mickelson didn't get such kind looks and sits at 40-to-1 odds.

2011's winner Keegan Bradley (Wood's tee-partner) comes in at 33-to-1. The odds don't have too much faith in the three major winners so far this season with Webb Simpson at 33-to-1, Bubba Watson at 40-to-1 and Ernie Els at a borderline forgotten 50-to-1.
