Your guide to this week's PGA Championship

The PGA Championship begins Thursday at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

You can check in on the TV times for all four rounds and the first- and second-round pairings.

Here are my three picks to win the title:

1. Rickie Fowler: Has three top-five performances in the majors this year, including runner-up finishes at both the U.S. Open and the British Open. A win would provide plenty of confidence heading into both the FedExCup playoffs and the Ryder Cup.

2. Rory McIlroy: Moved to No. 1 in the world with the win at the Bridgestone Invitational. Seeking fourth major title. Hard to pick against him right now.

3. Sergio Garcia: Is it finally his time to win that first major championship? Garcia has an incredible eight top-10 finishes in 12 PGA Tour starts. But his inability to close, like Sunday at Bridgestone, has always been his undoing.

Also, you can vote for Sunday's final-round hole location on the 16th hole. The Pick the Hole Location Challenge is being hosted by Jack Nicklaus, the former five-time champion of this event who designed the Valhalla course.
