GOLF'S stars tee it up in the USPGA Championship on Thursday with America having one last chance to claim a Major this season.

Charl Schwartzel, Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke have taken the first three big ones of the season and McIlroy is the bookies favourite in Atlanta.

McIlroy finished in the top 10 at Firestone last week and if his driver is hot he will be up there again.

The Highlands course is a beast of a layout and will demand long and accurate driving.

If McIlroy isn't your fancy at a biggest 11-1 with the likes of Paddy Power then focus your thoughts on Dustin Johnson.

The American was robbed of the title last year when he was controversially ruled to have grounded his club in what he didn't know was a bunker.

Johnson is one of the biggest hitters on tour and has come so close to winning a Major.

He pushed Clarke all the way in The Open and the gods certainly owe him.

There is no doubt he is America's best player and worth an each-way punt at 28-1 with William Hill and Stan James.

World No.1 Luke Donald is second favourite at 14-1 across the board but while his accuracy will be key will his game be suited to this monster lay-out which now boasts lightning quick Bermuda Grass greens?

Aussie Jason Day's credentials can't be ignored after runners-up spots in the US Masters and US Open. He was fourth in last week's WGC so is in form and clearly a man for the big occasion. Day is 28-1 with William Hill.

Rickie Fowler is another American who has been in form but isn't a proven winner. He's 33-1 with Ladbrokes.

David Toms is a winner, at Colonial this season, and when the US PGA was last staged at Highlands in 2001. The course is longer and tougher than it was then so Toms has no chance of matching his 15-under score.

He finished in the top 10 last week so might not be the daftest each-way punt at 55-1 with the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes.
