2012 PGA Championship: Picks And Predictions

On Thursday, the PGA Championship will get underway at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island. While many competitors will hit the links, only a select few are expected to make real noise in the fourth and final major of the year.

Tiger Woods is one such man. As usual, Woods comes in as a favorite to win another major, despite having zero titles in major events since his public humiliation a few years ago. However, Woods has a revamped swing and looks like he just might be able to pull it off.

Farrell Evans of ESPN.com likes Woods' chances.

Woodstock, VT native Keegan Bradley won the tournament last year and certainly has been playing terrific lately. The local looks primed for another run at capturing his second major.

Then there is Rory McIlroy, who frankly hasn't lived up to expectations in 2012. Most pundits thought he would run away from the pack and start dominating, but that hasn't been the case. Kevin Maguire of ESPN muses that McIlroy is the man to beat come the weekend.

Many people like Jason Dufner to walk away with the victory, including Chris Dunham, Ryan Smithson and Brian Wacker of PGATour.com.

We'll all find out soon enough who had it picked correctly when the tees starting flying on Thursday.
