While the Bridgestone Invitational still has 36 holes to go, a lot of the focus in the golf world is on the final major of the year.
The PGA Championship kicks off next week, and the PGA of America has already released the tee times for all the players for the first two rounds. Tiger Woods will be paired with two former winners of this event, Keegan Bradley and Davis Love III, while the three major winners of 2013, Adam Scott, Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson, will go off together at Oak Hill.
The rest of the tee times are after the jump, but give us what threesome you'd most want to follow if you were headed to the year's final major.

ARDMORE, Pa. — Who's doubting Merion Golf Club now?
After months of speculation that today's pros would run wild over the legendary course's relatively short layout, the East Course has bitten back in a big way. Friday's second-round scores were up from the tough first-round postings and you have to imagine that the USGA is having a good laugh at all the naysayers they proved wrong.
Three men not having a laugh, however, are Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell and Zach Johnson. The three men played in the same grouping over the first two rounds and nowhere did Merion's challenges appear more prevalent. Proving that bad play can be contagious, the three former major winners combined for a score of +40 and all are expected to head home for the weekend as they're currently outside the projected cut of +5.
"It's that hard, it's that difficult and it's that long," McDowell said of Merion after Friday's round. "It's not the way I wanted to play the last couple of days. But this place is very hard."
Johnson wasn't as polite after his disappointing showing.
“I would describe the whole golf course as manipulated,” Johnson told The Golf Channel. “It just enhances my disdain for the USGA and how it manipulates golf courses."
Johnson said the setup was not fair, which sounds like pure sour grapes.
“Not when luck is required,” Johnson said. “I think Merion is a great golf course, if you let Merion be, but that is not the agenda.”
Here's a breakdown of the carnage from that grouping:

It's U.S. Open week, and odds continue to change for who is expected to win this second major championship of 2013.
The last time we looked he was a 7/2 favorite and then moved to a 9/2 favorite after his play at Memorial, and it looks like the final numbers will have Woods at 4/1.
Some odds we like? Phil Mickelson at 20/1 doesn't seem like a bad value after his play at the St. Jude, and I don't hate Dustin Johnson at 40/1 considering he got a good warm-up last week as well.
What value do you see here? Odds are after the jump.

U.S. Open week is but a week away, and while golf's longest day might be kicking off this Monday, most of the names we've come to know in the golf world are already in the field at Merion.
The odds for the second major of 2013 have been updated over at golfodds.com, and Tiger Woods is still the clear favorite to win his 15th major championship but his odds have loosened up a bit.
A month ago Tiger was a 7/2 favorite at Merion, but after his play at the Memorial this past week where he shot 8-over for the tournament, good enough for a T-65, he moved to a 9/2 favorite. Rory McIlroy, who also struggled at Muirfield Village, finishing T-57, is a 15/1 favorite to win his third major championship while Memorial champion Matt Kuchar has moved up to 20/1 to win his first major at Merion.
The rest of the odds are after the jump. What value do you see on the board?

The Players Championship might have just ended, but with Tiger Woods snagging his fourth PGA Tour victory of 2013 it seems not calling him the favorite at next month's U.S. Open is downright clueless.
Las Vegas agrees, and with the new odds comes an even heavier betting burden for Woods at 7/2 (he was a 9/2 favorite less than a month ago). Rory McIlroy is still behind him at 12/1, with Lee Westwood snagging the third spot at 20/1 despite that whiff during his third round at the Players.
The rest of the odds are below, with some fairly juicy numbers expected for a fun Open at Merion.

Tee times are out for the 2013 Players Championship, and be prepared to see some of the biggest names in the game all playing together.
Tiger Woods will be paired with Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker, but that might not even be the most marquee threesome that plans to take on TPC Sawgrass come Thursday morning.
Phil Mickelson is paired with Justin Rose and Webb Simpson, while Rory McIlroy will go out with Adam Scott and Steve Stricker.
The pairings just keep getting better with the likes of Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson going out together and Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Jim Furyk highlighting a very American threesome.
The rest of the groupings and tee times are after the jump, so check out which group looks the most appealing for golf's fifth major.

The Masters just wrapped up on Sunday evening, and while there is still plenty to talk about, it wouldn't be sports if we didn't look ahead.
The U.S. Open is just 59 days away, and the odds are out on the second major of the year. Tiger Woods is the betting favorite at 9/2 (Note: he opened at 5/1), with Rory McIlroy coming in at 10/1 and Lee Westwood at 20/1. Masters champion Adam Scott is right behind those names at 25/1, with all the others after the jump.
