PGA Championship 2012: TV Schedule, How To Watch Online And More

Tiger Woods has been the favorite at every PGA major championship so far in 2012, and heading into the third round of the PGA Championship, he has put himself in good position to make good on those odds. Woods enters Saturday tied atop the leaderboard at 4-under alongside Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson after shooting 1-under in the second round.

Woods, of course, hasn't won a major since 2008, when he defeated Rocco Mediate in a playoff at the U.S. Open. Singh has won three majors, the last of which came at the 2004 PGA Championship, but he hasn't finished in the top 10 of a major since the 2006 U.S. Open. Pettersson has five career PGA tour wins, and has two Top 10 finishes in majors, at the 2006 British Open and the 2008 U.S. Open.

Date: Saturday, August 11
