The PGA Championship is sometimes golf's forgotten major. The last of the four, other tournaments such as The Players Championship seem to get more respect. However, it's a major nonetheless and the last big event before the Ryder Cup. Here are five golfers who will not win this major.

Because Singh is such a big name, he certainly has some chance, right? Did you know Singh hasn't won a darn thing since 2008? Back at that time, he actually won three events in less than a month, but he has no tour wins anywhere since. The two-time PGA champion has only one top-10 in a major since 2006 (2012 British Open).

A Watson might win the PGA Championship, but it won't be Tom. He has been a marvelous story for his recent success in both the British Open and the Senior British Open, and he absolutely should be in this field. Tom Watson can play anywhere he wants, but he won't be a factor in this tournament.

3. Colin Montgomerie

Montgomerie isn't on this list because of his usual lack of success in American majors for the non-Seniors set. In fact, Montgomerie is on a hot streak of late, having won both the Senior PGA Championship and the Senior U.S. Open this summer. However, it's unlikely to think that success is going to carry over to a win against a field of the best golfers in the world.

I'm going out on a limb with Martin Kaymer here. At one time the top-ranked player in the world (2011), Kaymer is the current U.S. Open champion and also has a PGA Championship in his trophy case (2010). But is he a guy who can win two majors in the same year? I don't think so.

Speaking of winning two majors in the same year, that used to be routine for Tiger Woods, but the hard times which has befallen the star has been well documented. He withdrew from last week's World Golf Championship event in the final round due to back pain, and he hasn't won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open. If he plays this week, don't bet on him.
