PGA Championship 2014: Tee Times, Pairings, Betting Odds And TV Schedule At Valhalla

The 2014 PGA Championship will be played at Valhalla Country Club in Louisville for the third time, and there is plenty abuzz as the tournament prepares to tee off for the 96th time. Will Rory McIlroy continue to dominate after regaining the No. 1 player ranking? Will Phil Mickelson play like he did on Sunday during the final round of the WBC Bridgestone Classic and put together a complete tournament? Will Tiger Woods play… period? While I cannot tell you the answers to any of those questions, I can tell you which players will be part of which pairings, as well as their tee times, betting odds, and how you can watch them on television.

The 96th PGA Championship will tee off from Valhalla beginning on Thursday, August 7, and will conclude on Sunday, August 10. Coverage will be on both TNT and CBS throughout the tournament, and will also stream live on CBS Sports. The field will consist of 156 players and take place on the longest course (7,458 yards) in PGA Championship history, with a total par score of 71. With a $10 million purse up for grabs, the winner of the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla can walk away with a cool $1.8 million for the four-day work schedule. McIlroy is the odds on favorite, along with Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia.
