The last major golf tournament of the year gets underway on Thursday when the 2012 PGA Championship tees off in the morning. A wide field of golfers will be playing for $8 million in prize money on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island in South Carolina.
Last year's champion Keegan Bradley is paired up with Tiger Woods, who opens the tournament as the favorite to win. Bradley could have the hot hand coming off his win at the WGC-Bridgestone in his last tournament.
The first group tees off at 7:20 a.m. Eastern, and the last group starts play at 2:30 p.m.
The TNT Network will have live coverage of the first round from 1-7 p.m. Eastern on Thursday. Coverage of the headline groups is available via online streaming from PGA.com.
