2012 PGA Championships: Third Round Recap And Tee Times Update

Saturday's rain delay prevented the completion of the third round of the 2012 PGA Championships for many of tournament's competitors, including Rory McIlroy, Vijay Singh, and Tiger Woods. As a result, players who have not yet completed their round of golf will take to the course at 7:45 a.m. Eastern Time. Afterwards, the fourth and final round of play will begin at 11:44 a.m. and tee times will continue through 1:45, according to an official statement from the PGA of America Rules Committee. The golfers will be placed into groups of three for round four.

McIlroy was four-under on Saturday to lower his overall score to -6, good enough to give him a first place tie with Singh. Singh is two-under through seven holes in the third round.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, stumbled after a strong start, shooting a +3 through seven holes in round three. He fell from atop the leaderboard to an eight-way tie for 11th place.

TV coverage begins on TNT at 8 a.m. Eastern Time and continues on CBS Sports at 2 p.m.

2012 PGA Championship Cut Line: Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood And Others Fail To Make The Cut

The cut line for the 2012 PGA Championship has been placed at 6-over par, sending some surprising names home early. Martin Kaymer, who won the event in 2010, sees his tournament draw to a close early. Rickie Fowler (10-over), Matt Kuchar (10-over), Hunter Mahan (8-over), Sergio Garcia (7-over) and Lee Westwood (7-over) all find themselves sharing the same fate. St. John's graduate Keegan Bradley, New York's representative in the field, struggled on Friday but is well within the cut at 1-over.

Luke Donald, who is ranked No. 1 in the world, and Jason Dufner both just barely made the cut, with both men finishing up on Friday at 6-over par.

2012 PGA Championship Odds: Keegan Bradley Enters As 8-1 Favorite

In just two days, golf's final major of the season -- the PGA Championship -- will begin and as no surprise Tiger Woods will step on the first tee at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina as the favorite to win the crown. Woods, a four-time winner of the event, is a 7-4 favorite to win the tournament, according to oddsmakers at Bovada.

The second-best bet is Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy and England's Luke Donald, who both have 10-3 odds to win.

Meanwhile, one of Woods' playing partners and the PGA Championship's defending champion, Keegan Bradley, is a 8-1 favorite. Bradley, the St. John's University graduate, is coming off a victory last Sunday at the Firestone CC.

Local golfers -- Rumson, N.J., resident Brain Gaffney (150-1), Purchase, NY resident Frank Bensel (150-1) and Lake Success, NY resident Matt Dobyns -- all have 150-1 odds of winning the event.
