PGA Championship capsules
Worldwide wins: 2.

2012 majors: Masters-T27, US Open-T68, British Open-T34.
Backspin: The good news for Bradley is that he has never missed a cut in a major. The flip side is that his winning percentage has dropped from 100 percent after winning the PGA last year to 25 percent. The trick will be not paying attention to the Ryder Cup. He’s ninth in the standings, after getting bypassed last year for the Presidents Cup. He was clutch at Riviera to get into a playoff, and he never looks like he’s too far off. Only one player _ Tiger Woods _ has won back-to-back at the PGA since it went to stroke play.
Country: United States.
World ranking: 5.
Worldwide wins: 3.
Majors: U.S. Open (2012).
Best 2012 performances: Won the U.S. Open.
2012 majors: Masters-T44, US Open-1, British Open-DNP.
Backspin: Introductions might be in order. Simpson has not played since the Travelers Championship, one week after he won the U.S. Open. He went home to North Carolina to be with his pregnant wife, skipping the British Open. She gave birth to a daughter. Simpson returns at the PGA Championship, which will be his first competition in six weeks. But we’re dealing with a guy who gets everything out of his game, and is very much at peace with himself.
