PGA Championship player capsules
MAJORS: U.S. Open (2010).
PGA MOMENT: Only one top 10, and that was at Hazeltine in 2009. He finished eight shots behind.
BACKSPIN: A year ago, he contended in two majors and failed to win during the regular season. This year he has won three times _ once on the PGA Tour, twice on the European Tour _ and was happy to make his first cut in a major this year at Muirfield. He went through a spell of either winning or missing the cut. If he’s driving it well, he shouldn’t be counted out to add a second major at Oak Hill. It would be a nice wedding gift for someone just over a month away from matrimony.
COUNTRY: South Africa.
WORLD RANKING: 13.
WORLDWIDE WINS: 9.
2013 WINS: None.
MAJORS: Masters (2011).
PGA MOMENT: Playing the best among the first-time major champions grouped together in the 2011 PGA Championship. Small consolation. He tied for 12th.
BACKSPIN: He’s one of 11 players from the top 20 in the world ranking without a win this year, which is surprising because he looks as though he can win on any given week. He flirted with contention at the British Open, only to lose his temper _ and break his 9-iron _ when he slammed the club to the ground. He fits the profile of recent PGA champions. The last three have all been in their 20s.
