The first round of the 2012 PGA Championship kicks off on Thursday, and the preliminary pairings have created some interesting groups that will hit the links at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course. Tiger Woods will be pushing to win the major tournament after missing out at The Masters and the British Open, and he will initially be paired with Keegan Bradley and Martin Kaymer -- the 2011 and 2010 winners of the PGA Championship, respectively.
Luke Donald will join Brandt Snedeker and Zach Johnson, while Rory McIlroy will be grouped with Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk. If you want a current set of tournament odds, be sure to visit Bovada.
