PGA Championship player capsules
PGA MOMENT: Becoming the first player to win back-to-back after the PGA Championship switched to stroke play in 1958.
BACKSPIN: This is looking more and more like an empty year in the majors for Woods, which would mean seven months of analysis until the Masters. Why wait? Some will argue it’s his putting on the weekend. Others point toward distance control. Jack Nicklaus suggested that maybe the major champions this year played better. That would be one thing out of Woods‘ control. Not to be forgotten are his four wins this year, and his No. 1 ranking. Yes, he’s still capable of winning any major on any course.
COUNTRY: Northern Ireland.
WORLD RANKING: 3.
WORLDWIDE WINS: 10.
2013 WINS: None.
PGA MOMENT: Breaking the PGA record for margin of victory (8 shots) last year at Kiawah.
BACKSPIN: This is where it all turned around last year for McIlroy. The difference is he was not as far away as he is now. McIlroy started the year with a missed cut in Abu Dhabi, an early exit from Match Play and a WD from the Honda Classic with sore wisdom teeth. He still hasn’t had his wisdom teeth removed. He still doesn’t have a win this year, shocking for a guy who started at No. 1. A win allows him to join Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus as the only players in the last 50 years to win a major in three straight seasons.
