Star-Telegram golf writer Jimmy Burch handicaps his top 10 choices, with odds, to win the 2014 PGA Championship:
7-1 Rickie Fowler After consecutive runner-up finishes in the past two majors, Fowler appears ready to seize the top spot.
8-1 Rory McIlroy No. 1 player in world rankings also is hottest golfer on the planet. But it’s hard to win three consecutive events.
9-1 Adam Scott Colonial champ has slipped to No. 2 in world rankings but remains a consistent contender in golf’s biggest events.
10-1 Matt Kuchar Stellar ball-striker has all the shots, skills, intangibles needed for a major breakthrough.
12-1 Jason Day The PGA produces lots of first-time major winners. Day has the talent to seize his day for the history books.
14-1 Sergio Garcia Game is grooved, but the Spaniard must make more clutch Sunday putts to walk away with the hardware.
15-1 Jordan Spieth Rising star on PGA Tour should be a final-round factor at Valhalla Golf Club.
16-1 Long-hitting Lefties Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson cannot be discounted at this course.
18-1 Jason Dufner Defending champ is capable of making the magic happen again this week.
20-1 Keegan Bradley Power player won the 2011 PGA title and is overdue for a strong Sunday showing at another major championship.
