|Tiger Woods is on top of his golf game after back-to-back tournament victories gave him his 11th major championship at the British Open and 50th career title at the Buick Open.|
Now Woods enters the final major of the season at Medinah Country Club as PinnacleSports.com 9/4 favourite for the PGA Championship.
Woods is no stranger to being favourite, in fact, PinnacleSports.com made Woods the favourite in this year's previous three majors, but this time his odds for the PGA have been cut in half from both the U.S. and British Open where Tiger was a 5/1 shot.
Tiger is such a clear favourite this time due to his current form and the fact that he was victorious at Medinah the last time the PGA Championship was held there in 1999.
Mickelson follows Tiger in the betting at 10/1 although he has struggled to find form since his dramatic collapse in the US Open.
Ernie Els (14/1) and Jim Furyk (16/1) are solid contenders in the 156-player field to win their first PGA Championship, while Vijay Singh (16/1) hopes to win the event for the third time.
Further back in the betting several other players will feel they have a big chance to win their first PGA Championship including: Retief Goosen (25/1), Sergio Garcia (28/1), Adam Scott (30/1), Luke Donald (35/1), Padraig Harrington (45/1) and Chris DiMarco (50/1).
PinnacleSports.com also lists reigning U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy at 50/1 while 2001 champion David Toms is a 60/1 long shot and could well attract some interest from bettors.
