PGA Championship Odds 2012: Tiger Woods Once Again The Early Favorite

In every major tournament thus far in 2012, Tiger Woods has been the odds-on betting favorite before the events even teed off. The story is no different heading into the 2012 PGA Championship, which begins Thursday. Tiger Woods is once again the darling of the bookmakers, entering the tournament as the 8/1 favorite to win.

Those odds will change over the course of the tournament, of course, but the oddsmakers continue to have confidence that Woods will regain his form. Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald hold the next-closest odds to win, at 18/1. Both Woods and McIlroy have had their struggles throughout the year, of course, but they are always viewed as a threat to run away with any PGA Tour event.

Returning champion Keegan Bradley is all the way down at 33/1 odds against successfully defending his title.
