PGA Championship odds: Jason Dufner and Jim Furyk favored, Rory McIlroy surges

Stuart Franklin

Despite dropping out of the lead with an over-par round, Jason Dufner is still 3/1 to win the 95th PGA Championship.

There are just 18 holes left in the 2013 golf majors, and Jason Dufner will enter the final round of the season as the favorite at the PGA Championship. Dufner actually lost his lead on Saturday in the third round, coming back a shot with a 1-over 71 to yield the lead to Jim Furyk. But his recent form over the past two seasons, and his majors scoring record round earlier in the week, increased his profile in the public and he's still one the oddsmakers are favoring. Dufner is 3/1 and Furyk, leading one shot ahead at 9-under, is 11/4 after his third straight round in the 60s.

Tiger Woods, who started the week as an overwhelming 7/2 favorite, is no longer on the board. Tiger's longshot chances were extinguished early in his third round, which he finished in 73 to drop to 4-over for the week. Rory McIlroy, however, did boost his chances with back-to-back birdies to finish his round and move inside the top 10. He jumped up 21 spots on the leaderboard and is now a 20/1 favorite to win his third major by the age of 24.
