PGA Championship capsules
Country: United States.
World ranking: 24.
Worldwide wins: 3.
Best 2012 performances: Won the Farmers Insurance Open.
2012 majors: Masters-T19, US Open-DNP, British Open-T3.
Backspin: He missed five tournaments because of a rib injury, which might have hurt his standing for the Ryder Cup team. All three of his wins have been from behind, which means he’s a guy who can go low on the last day. What was impressive about the British Open was his putting. Not so impressive was some wildness off the tee. He’s not terribly long (most guys are long enough, though), and he came away from Lytham needing to find a go-to shot under pressure. Also has been trying to find the right driver since his regular one broke earlier this year.
