2012 PGA Championship Odds: Tiger Woods The Early Favorite

No surprise here: Tiger Woods is the odds-on favorite to win the PGA Championship, which will take place this week at the Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

Woods has won the event four times, most recently in 2007.

The oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Detroit native Brian Cairns as a 3000/1 longshot -- same as Alan Morin, who golfed at Ferris State. Only four golfers have lower odds at winning.

Here is a rundown of the top contenders:

Tiger Woods 8/1
Rory McIlroy 18/1
Luke Donald 18/1
Lee Westwood 20/1
Adam Scott 28/1
Jason Dufner 28/1
Justin Rose 28/1
Webb Simpson 33/1
Dustin Johnson 33/1
Louis Oosthuizen 33/1
Steve Stricker 33/1
Matt Kuchar 33/1
Keegan Bradley 33/1
Hunter Mahan 40/1
Bubba Watson 40/1
Phil Mickelson 40/1
Graeme McDowell 40/1
Bo Van Pelt 40/1
Jim Furyk 40/1
Zach Johnson 40/1
Padraig Harrington 40/1

Action gets underway on Thursday morning.
