Backspin: There should be no more questions about whether Woods is “back” based on his swing. He has won three times this year, and no one has won more in one season on the PGA Tour since … Woods in 2009. But no one will think of him as being “back” until he wins another major. The game is fine. He doesn’t hole as many putts as he once did, but that was bound to happen. No one said this about Woods before, but what he needs to win a major is a few good breaks.
World ranking: 62.
Worldwide wins: 19.
Majors: British Open (2007, 2008), PGA Championship (2008).
Best 2012 performances: Tie for 4th in the U.S. Open.
2012 majors: Masters-T8, US Open-T4, British Open-T39.
Backspin: There is a feeling Harrington is getting closer to form, as he showed at the U.S. Open and Irish Open. Throw in a little experience on Kiawah Island from the World Cup in 1997 _ OK, he was only 26 _ and he could surprise a few people. The key will be to narrow his misses and to stay in the game for the first three days, and then have his eyes get wide and his tongue hang out of the side of his mouth on the back nine Sunday.
