Ranking the PGA Championship contenders

TULSA, Okla. -- Tommy Bolt. Dave Stockton. Hubert Green. Raymond Floyd. Nick Price. Retief Goosen.

The list of major champions at Southern Hills isn't exactly a Who's Who of golf royalty -- no Arnies, Jacks or Tigers in the bunch -- but it's a pretty distinguished group, featuring four World Golf Hall of Famers (Bolt, Green, Floyd and Price), one future HOFer (Goosen) and a guy who won two majors and captained a victorious U.S. Ryder Cup team (Stockton).

Among those who may not contend at Southern Hills are Jim Furyk (back injury), Adam Scott (poor recent results) and Padraig Harrington (still on a British Open high). With that in mind, let's break down the top 20 contenders for the Wanamaker Trophy:
