2007 PGA Championship odds and top contenders

 The 89th PGA Championship is upon us, we will look at the betting odds and the top contenders for the trophy.

2007 PGA Championship odds and top contenders Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Oklahoma is the place, August 9th is the time for the last major PGA event in 2007. Golf fans all over the world will be able to watch the biggest names in the world battling the current champion Tiger Woods. He on the other side would push himself to the maximum to prove he is still the number one and will tee off chasing his fourth PGA Championship victory.

 You can find the full list of odds on the PGA Championship at the bottom of the page, but here is our pick of the litter, the top three golfers we think are most likely to win the the 2007 PGA Championship.

 Tiger Woods, odds 9/4. Tiger Woods, 31, pretty much has to win the PGA Championship. The world number one has been criticized a lot this year, despite winning quite a few tournament. In 2007 Woods tied second for the Masters and the U.S. Open, and 12th for The Open Championship. A win at the PGA Championship is a must.

 He is currently the favorite to win the Championship by the online oddsmaker Bodog Sports, but bettors and bookies alike have lost a bundle on Woods this year. His latest 8-shot win at the Firestone reminded everyone he is the number one for a reason and it would be insane not to consider the Tiger when betting on the PGA Championship.

 Phil Mickelson, odds 18/1. Don't let the odds fool you, Mickelson is still major competition for Tiger Woods. Mickelson won the PGA Championship in 2005 and will look to double in 2007. Phil Mickelson won the 2007 Players Championship with an 11-under-par 277, but at the same time missed the cut at the U.S. Open. He also took the AT&T National trophy, as well as the Masters and the Bellsouth Classic last year. Don't be quick to write him off for the PGA Championship.

 Jim Furyk, odds 20/1. Although his last major championship victory was back in 2003 at the U.S. Open, Jim Furyk has the experience and certainly the desire to win the 2007 PGA Championship. He is way overdue for a major win and if he stays focused this week Furyk could hurt the bookmakers. Jim Furyk won the Canadian Open in 2006 and 2007, and has listed Tiger Woods as a runner up twice in the past.
