The PGA Championship comes to Kiawah Island’s Ocean, a course that hasn’t held a top Tour event since its first one: the 1991 Ryder Cup. The Ocean Course is infamous for its swirling winds off the Atlantic, making for a treacherous week. Here’s who’s most likely to hold up best in the year’s final major…

Steve Stricker (35/1): We told you last week that Stricker usually enjoys the dog days of summer, and he was right there at Firestone, shooting a 64 on Sunday and finishing a stroke behind winner Keegan Bradley. It was his second top-5 finish in his past three starts, and his fifth straight top-25 finish. His odds are long because he’s never won a major, and he doesn’t even have a top-10 in one since the 2009 Masters. But after solid showings in each of the past two PGAs (T18 and T12), he’s poised for a breakthrough.

Justin Rose (25/1): Rose has been tearing up the Euro Tour all year, making his missed cut at the British all the more disappointing. But his T5 at the Bridgestone made it five top-10’s in his past seven starts worldwide. Had he not missed the cut at his last two PGAs, on courses that played much differently than Kiawah will, he’d be looking at much shorter odds.

Charl Schwartzel (50/1): Schwartzel has been a disappointment in the majors this year. After seven straight top-20 finishes, including a 2011 Masters title, he’s gone T50 at Masters, T38 at the U.S. Open and missed the cut at the British. But he finished Bridgestone with his first bogey-free round of the year, a 63 to move to a T24 finish.

Zach Johnson (35/1): A weak finish at the Bridgestone (final-round 74 in a T40) has again knocked Johnson off the radar for many. But this is still a guy who has four top-10 finishes, including two wins, over his past 10 starts.

Tiger Woods (13/2): Woods built a little bit of momentum last weekend by going 68-66 to finish T8 at the Bridgestone. But his putter was off all week. And if he’s not putting well, Woods is nowhere near the heavy favorite he’s listed at.
