This week's tournament: The PGA Championship at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
Horse for the Course
Bob Harig, ESPN.com senior golf writer: Louis Oosthuizen
It's hard to figure out who the Ocean Course favors, but it's hard to knock a guy who is playing well and hits the ball so nicely. He sniffed contention last week and perhaps his game is rounding into shape.
Kevin Maguire, ESPN.com senior golf editor: Dustin Johnson
The South Carolina native will be playing in the first major that his home state has ever hosted. Wouldn't it be sweet revenge if the big-hitting Johnson could avenge the debacle that cost him a spot in a playoff at the 2010 PGA Championship?
Gene Wojciechowski, ESPN.com senior national columnist: Adam Scott
Can play in wind. Is patient enough to deal with the nuttiness of a Pete Dye course. And golf might owe him one, right?
The defending PGA champ comes to Kiawah on a high after his Bridgestone Invitational victory on Sunday that all but wrapped up a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Bradley is playing well at a good time.
Kevin Maguire: Keegan Bradley
The St. John's product broke out of his mid-season funk with a bang after his surprising victory at the WGC-Bridgestone just in time to defend his PGA Championship title. Before his win in Akron, Bradley hadn't earned a top-20 on the PGA Tour since before the Masters.
Gene Wojciechowski: Keegan Bradley
Bradley is fearless. He's coming off a come-from-behind win. Back-to-back PGA titles wouldn't stun me.
He's not done much since his victory at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but the PGA seems to produce first-time major winners or those to whom we're not paying much attention.
Kevin Maguire: Padraig Harrington
Loads of respect for a three-time major winner who didn't qualify for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and instead teed it up at the Reno-Tahoe Open and finished T-19. Never hurts that he's clutched the Wannamaker Trophy on a Sunday evening before, too.
Gene Wojciechowski: Jim Furyk
He collapsed at the U.S. Open and at Firestone. But Furyk is a grinder. He'll be ready this week.
Can he get over the pain of such a tough loss at the Bridgestone? Furyk is obviously playing well, he just had one bad hole at the worst time. It sure would be a great story if he bounced back this week.
Kevin Maguire: Rory McIlroy
Last week, the Northern Irishman started the WGC-Bridgestone 3 over after four holes, but rebounded nicely for a T-5 finish. Expect the world No. 3 to enjoy the links-like layout of Kiawah Island, especially if he's raising his second major championship trophy in as many years.
Gene Wojciechowski: Matt Kuchar
Steady. Unflappable. Time for another first time major winner.
