Golf Rankings for PGA Championship
Bubba Watson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #4
Over the last three years Watson has finished solo second in the 2010 PGA Championship, T26 in 2011 and T11 last year. He’s finished 32nd or better in seven consecutive tournaments this week, but owns just one top-20 during that time.

Since finishing T10 in the U.S. Open, Fowler has finished 21st or better in three of his last four starts, missing the cut in the British.
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #7
Furyk has started to turn his season back around with two consecutive top-10 finishes. He claimed a T9 in both the Canadian Open and last week at Firestone. He finished a respectable T18 at Oak Hill in 2003.
Webb Simpson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #42
Simpson has missed the cut in both of his PGA Championship appearances, but played two excellent bookend rounds last week at Firestone. He hasn’t performed well in the other majors this season, but could be close to putting it together.

Cabrera put together three straight finishes inside the top 15 (including a T11 in the British Open), but dropped to T38 last week at Firestone. He managed a T45 at Oak Hill in 2003.
