Guess what, the PGA Championship starts in just over two weeks and we have a favorite that you probably could guess even if you hadn't watched golf all year (or ever).

That's right, Tiger Woods remains the favorite for the fourth major of 2013 despite his inability to close any of the first three.

It's probably the right move for oddsmakers given that he's one of only four guys ( Phil Mickelson , Adam Scott , and Jason Day ) to finish in the top six in at least two of the first three majors.

Here's a look at some of your bigger favorites for Oak Hill in two weeks:


Tiger Woods: 5-1
Phil Mickelson: 10-1

Other favorites

Adam Scott: 20-1
Justin Rose : 20-1
Lee Westwood : 22-1
Rory McIlroy : 25-1

Fringe favorites

Jason Day: 33-1
Sergio Garcia : 33-1
Dustin Johnson: 33-1
Matt Kuchar : 33-1
Hunter Mahan : 33-1
Luke Donald : 33-1
Graeme McDowell : 33-1
Charl Schwartzel : 33-1

Outside looking in

Brandt Snedeker : 40-1
Jason Dufner : 40-1
Keegan Bradley : 40-1
Steve Stricker : 40-1
Bubba Watson : 40-1
Rickie Fowler : 50-1
Henrik Stenson : 50-1
Ian Poulter : 50-1 
Ernie Els : 50-1
Webb Simpson : 50-1

I don't know how to say this properly but SNEDEKER!!

At 40-1? Come on, guys. The dude would have taken the Claret Jug if he'd shot par instead of a 43 on the back nine on Friday at Muirfield. He was in until the end at Augusta, too. 

I also like Jason Day at 33-1 (I always like Jason Day though) and Jason Dufner at 40-1, he was sneaky good at the British Open and is kind of due for a big tournament.

We'll keep you up to date on how things change throughout the next few weeks leading up to the tournament.
