Keegan Bradley is your 2011 PGA Champion. After looking like he was out of it with a triple bogey on 15, Bradley rallied to birdie the next two holes and force a playoff when Jason Dufner bogeyed three straight holes. Bradley then rocked the playoff, birdieing the first hole and holding on.
It looked like Dufner was in great shape after the first hole on the PGA Championship playoff. His second shot from the 16th fairway went right down the middle but breezed straight past the hole. But then he missed a huge birdie putt and ended up settling for par on the first hole. Bradley was more opportunistic, getting his shot right up next to Dufner's and nailing his birdie to go up by one.
Bradley went straight up to the par 3, 17th hole and put one straight within 15 feet; he ended up two putting to stay at -1. Dufner's shot was much longer, and ended up three putting for bogey just as he did the first time he went through the 17th hole today to fall back to +1.
Heading to the 18th, both Bradley and Dufner hit great approach shots down the middle. Bradley then put his second shot within twenty feet of the hole downhill, and Dufner put it in a similar spot. After Dufner knocked in his birdie to get back to within one of the lead, Bradley two-putted to take it home.
Jason Dufner looked like he was in good shape with a four shot lead down the back nine, and a three shot lead and three holes remaining. But Dufner bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes and fell back to the pack at -8, leading
Keegan Bradley looked like he was out of it after a triple bogey on 15 that pushed him to -6 and knocked him five behind Dufner, but he rallied with birdies on 16 and 17 to push himself back up into -8. At the 18th hole, Bradley had a chance to take the outright lead, but he knocked his very long putt left. Dufner had a similar chance at 18 to win, but it was a long putt as well and also went left. Dufner ended up needing to two putt, and we're now heading to a playoff.
Here comes the three hole aggregate playoff! Best score after the 16th, 17th and 18th holes takes home the prize. If not, more golf! The PGA Championship is going to overtime! The excitement is palpable.
Jason Dufner looked like he could be in trouble when he put the ball in the water on the 15th. But he somehow rallied and managed to keep it at bogey. And that's literally the biggest obstacle Dufner has had to deal with in the final round so far. He birdied the 12th and 13th holes to move up the leaderboard, and everyone behind him gearing for first fell apart:
Still, Dufner has the toughest three holes remaining. It's not quite over yet.
Keegan Bradley had been in second place, but a bogey at nine had dropped him to two shots back. However, an eagle on the 12th hole ties him with Jason Dufner, who added another birdie at the eight to move up to -9, and stays ahead in first by one shot after 11 holes.
Robert Karlsson from Sweden is making the biggest possible surge at the best possible time. Karlsson has kept his fourth round scorecard spot-free with no bogeys through the first thirteen holes. He was -3 through the front nine, birdied the tenth, then moved right into second place when he eagled the 12th. He is now six-under through his round and at -8 for the tournament through 13 holes. Unfortunately, it's still not enough to put him ahead of Dufner.
Anders Hansen from Denmark has moved up to -7 and David Toms & Scott Verplank has also made a late charge to get to -6. With not many holes remaining, these look like your main contenders for the PGA Championship title.
Jason Dufner is holding steady in first place after making par on his first five holes. A birdie on six have kept him at the lead, and is now at -8 through seven holes.
Keegan Bradley is the one staying close to Dufner right now after a birdie on the first, bogey on the third, and two more birdies on the fifth and the eighth. He's tied for the lead through eight holes.
Robert Karlsson and Luke Donald have been the ones surging through the final round, both netting -4 in their final rounds. They're both on the back nine at -6 and -5 respectively.
Brendan Steele started the day tied for the lead, but bogeys on three of the first six holes have taken him back to the pack. He's currently at -4, still tied for seventh.
Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson will end up finishing up short. Garcia is hitting the water a lot at 18. Mickelson currently holds at even par.
The entire field is finally on the course for the final round of the PGA Championship as third round leaders Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele try to hang on for their first major victory. There already has been some shifting atop the leaderboard only a few holes into their round as the race for the Wanamaker trophy is at a full sprint to the finish line.
Steele had an unfortunate bogey on the first hole, moving him back to six-under par and one behind the leaders through two holes. Dufner remains at seven-under through two, while veteran Scott Verplank has moved to six-under as well through three holes with a birdie on the 2nd. Andres Hansen has moved to four-under through four holes, while Nick Watney is two-under for the day through seven holes, moving him to three-under for the week and four shots behind the leaders.
With things bunching up around the leaders and almost the entire field left to play the difficult stretch of the 15-18th holes, it literally is still anyone’s game who is around the top of the leaderboard.
As the final round of play continues to roll on at the PGA Championship, the number of players in red numbers is growing by the minute, with two of those players being veterans Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. Both men started in the black before their rounds began, and have used some early birdies to head in the right direction on the leaderboard at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Sergio moved into a tie for 16th for the tournament with three birdies on his front nine today, including back-to-back birds on the 5th and 6th. He birdied the 9th after bogeying the 8th, and began his second nine with a par on the 10th.
As for Phil, he carded a two-under 33 on the front nine with seven pars and two birdies, back-to-back on the 5th and 6th like Garcia. The shorter course setup on Sunday seems to be playing into the PGA’s hand, as they wanted as many guys as possible to shoot lower scores, making the final day of the tourney just that much more exciting. Hopefully that trend continues throughout the rest of the day.
The leaders are only minutes away from teeing off in the final round of the PGA Championship at the Atlanta Country Club, and boy is it going to be a good one. Auburn alumni Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele hold onto their narrow lead at seven-under par over guys like veteran Scott Verplank and youngster Keegan Bradley, while the guys on the course are making big moves, trying to move up the leaderboard and fatten up their paychecks a bit.
Austrailian Robert Allenby is having one of the best rounds of the day so far, currently at five-under for his round after only 13 holes. Allenby’s great round has moved him all the way from a tie for 43rd place up to 8th place on the leaderboard.
Georgia native Bubba Watson is another player making a charge, moving up 23 spots on the leaderboard thus far on Sunday, currently three-under par through nine holes and one-under for the tournament. He currently resides tied for 14th place.
The fourth and final round of the PGA Championship is underway at Atlanta Athletic Club , but the leaders are still yet to tee off this Sunday. Auburn alum Jason Dufner sits atop the leaderboard for now, but still has a number of players waiting right behind him. Nevertheless, the players on the course are making moves up and down the leaderboard, including a few of the Gerogia-born local boys out on the track.
Georgia native Bubba Watson is just a few holes into his final round, and is even par through three thus far, leaving him at two-over par for the tournament. Georgia resident Zach Johnson is even par through 13 holes today, remaining six-over for the tournament, while Georgia-Tech alum Bryce Molder is also even par for his round today, leaving him at three-over par. Unfortunately in one of the worst rounds of the day, Georgia native Davis Love III is struggling though at eight-over par on his round today and 13-over for the tournament.
The PGA is using the shortest layout of the week on Sunday at 7,236 yards, so there might be a few low rounds out there to be had still.
Saturday's third round action of the PGA Championship saw a mixed bag for several Georgia products. While Matt Kuchar had a great day and moved up significantly, Bubba Watson maintained his relative position on the leaderboard. Davis Love III, unfortunately, shot poorly down the stretch and took a dive in the standings.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket alumni Kuchar put up his best round of the tournament on Saturday. Kuchar managed birdies on holes 5 and 8 on the front nine to move to 2-under. He offset two more birdies on the back nine with back-to-back bogeys on holes 15 and 16, leaving him with a 2-under 68 on the day. Through three rounds of golf, Kuchar has an even-210 for the tournament and has jumped 19 spots into a tie for 20th.
Georiga Bulldog alumni Watson struggled on the front nine but then responded in the latter half of the day to put up an even-70. Watson had four bogeys and one birdie through the front nine, placing him at 3-over. However, four birdies on the back nine helped him recover and Watson finished the day with an even-70. Watson sits at +2 overall, and has moved up two spots from 39th at the beginning of play on Saturday to 37th.
Georgia resident Love III faltered on Saturday with a 6-over 76 performance after posting solid rounds of 3-under 68 on Thursday and 1-over 71 on Friday. He had five bogeys on the front nine and one birdie. Though he managed three birdies on the back nine, two double-bogeys and another bogey doomed Love's round and made him settle for a 6-over 76 on the day. Davis slipped 42 spots and ended the spot in a tie for 56th.
Sunday's action will crown a winner to the 2011 PGA Championship. Kuchar and Watson could make some noise and, provided the two play good rounds of golf, could challenge those at the top of the leaderboard by day's end.
At the close of Saturday's action at the PGA Championship, five Americans sit atop the leaderboard. Brendan Steele and Jason Dufner are tied for first at -7 each. Keegan Bradley is in third place at -6 overall, Scott Verplank sits at fourth place with -5 and Steve Stricker sits at fifth place with -4.
Four golfers put up rounds of 4-under or better on Saturday. The day's most impressive round came from David Toms, who shot a 5-under 65 and moved up 45 spots. He is tied for eighth place heading into the tournament's last day.
Three other golfers- the aforementioned Brendan Steele, Charl Schwartzel and Ben Crane- posted totals of 4-under 66 on Saturday. Steele used his 4-under performance to move up from seventh place at the beginning of the day and secure a tie for first with Dufner. Schwartzel jumped 31 spots and is now tied for eighth, holding -2 for the tournament. Crane, meanwhile, jumped 40 spots and is tied for 13th with -1 overall.
The PGA Championship is headed for an exciting final day of action on Sunday as only three strokes separate the top five contenders.
Brendan Steele has broken his tie with Jason Dufner on top of the leaderboard and now firmly leads the field by two shots. Steele is 5-under for the day through 15 holes. He is 8-under overall, leading the duo of Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner by two shots (each at 6-under).
The American group of Steele, Bradley, Dufner and Steve Stricker (who is currently tied for fourth place at 4-under overall) have swapped places among the top of the leaderboard for most of the day. Steele, however, has elevated his play on the back nine. He has recorded three birdies over seven holes and has started to distance himself from his competitors.
Bradley has gotten off to a solid start on the back nine as well, hitting a birdie on hole 12 to move to 1-under on the day. He has only played through the 14th hole at this point and could move right back up to tie Steele if he can put together a few more birdies over the final four remaining holes.
Dufner, meanwhile, has struggled on the back nine after a 2-under performance on the front nine. He has hit two bogeys on holes 12 and 14, and is in danger of falling behind the rest of the top Americans if he doesn't return to his earlier performance soon.
Further down the leaderboard, South African Charl Schwartzel joined the likes of Ben Crane and Hunter Mahan on Saturday by shooting an impressive 4-under 66. He moved to 2-under for the tournament after birdies on holes 10, 12 and 15. Schwartzel drastically improved his position in the standings, jumping 29 spots and into a tie for 10th place heading into the tournament's final day.
The third round of the PGA Championship is underway and four Americans- Brendan Steele, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley and Jim Furyk- sit at the top of the leaderboard. Steele and Dufner lead the field at 6-under overall, with Steele sporting a 3-under through ten holes and Dufner posting a 1-under through seven holes.
Bradley and Furyk both stand one shot off the lead at 5-under. Bradley, who started in a tie for first at the beginning of the day, has an even score through eight holes and has slipped to a third-place tie. Furyk, on the other hand, started in a tie for third at the beginning of Saturday and has maintained his position by shooting 1-under through ten holes.
David Toms' early 5-under performance still remains the best of the day as the golfing action continues. Toms, who began the day at 3-over, jumped from a tie for 53rd to a tie for 10th.
Other players who have made big moves so far include Swede Robert Karlsson and American Ben Crane. Karlsson, nearing the end of his round, has put up a 4-under performance through 17 holes. He is currently 3-under overall and has jumped from a tie for 26th at the start of the day to a tie for sixth.
Crane, who has finished his round, shot a 4-under 66 to reach 1-under overall. He has moved up the leaderboard from a tie for 53rd to a tie for 16th.
Coverage of Saturday's third round can currently be found on CBS and you can find a full look at the leaderboard here.
David Toms came out firing on Saturday morning at the PGA Championship, and is in the clubhouse with the low round of the day thus far. Of course, the leaders have still yet to tee-off, with the final group of the day, consisting of Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner set to begin their rounds at 3 p.m. But in calm conditions on Saturday morning, low rounds were there for the taking, with Toms and others taking advantage.
Toms carded a 5-under 65 on Saturday, moving up 42 spots and into a tie for 11th. With his 5-under round, Toms moved back into the red, beginning the day at 3-over and ending it at 2-under for the tournament. As it stands now, he's just four shots off the pace, though a lot could change as the leaders take the course this afternoon.
In addition to Toms' day, Ben Crane also had an excellent round, carding a 4-under 66 to get to 1-under on the tournament. Matt Kuchar is at 4-under for the day, as well, but is through just 13 holes, with the difficult finishing stretch at Atlanta Athletic Club still ahead.
Coverage of Saturday's third round can currently be found on CBS and you can find a full look at the leaderboard here.
There are good scores to be had at the PGA Championship on Sunday, with multiple players deep in their rounds and under-par for the day. Francesco Molinari has the most notable round going thus far, moving to 5-under for the round and 2-under for the tournament -- he began the day at +3 -- through 13 holes. As it stands now, Molinari is tied for 11th on the PGA Championship leaderboard, though none of the leaders have teed-off.
In addition to Molinari's blistering round, Ben Crane and David Toms are way under par, moving up the leaderboard, as well. Each is at 4-under for the day and 1-under for the tournament with just a few holes left on their rounds. Hunter Mahan is also at 4-under for the day, but is at just even-par for the tournament. Three others -- Luke Donald, Brian Davis and K.J. Choi -- are currently at even-par for the tournament and are under par for the day, though each has a ways to go to catch the leaders.
Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner still hold the lead at the PGA Championship, though they won't tee-off until 3 p.m. as the final group of the day.
You can find a full look at the leaderboard here.
The 2011 PGA Championship is just about through its first round at the Atlanta Athletic Club. And, if anyone had Steve Stricker as the golfer atop the leaderboard after one day of golfing, they should be quite happy as the veteran finished seven-under through the opening day.
Stricker struck seven birdies over the course of his first round at the Championship, five of which came on the back nine as he hit three consecutive one-unders on the first three holes of the latter half of the course. What might be more impressive, though, is the fact that Stricker did no worse than par on all 18 holes.
Stricker's closest combatant on the leaderboard is Jerry Kelly as the Wisconsin native put together a five-under 65 in his first round at the Johns Creek, Ga., golf course.
Since this is SB Nation Atlanta, it seems worth noting that Georgia resident Davis Love III is currently in a tie for fifth place -- a good spot through the first round for the St. Simon's Island resident. The rest of the golfers with Georgia ties haven't been particularly impressive as Bubba Watson's spot on the leaderboard in a tie for 96th place might indicate.
As the afternoon players make their way through Atlanta Athletic Club, latecomers Trevor Immelman and Shaun Micheel have made their mark on the top 10. Each is 3-under so far, Immelman through seven holes and Micheel through 11, putting them four off of PGA Championship pace-setter Steve Stricker.
Rory McIlroy knocked down par on hole No. 9 on a putt that swirled around the cup before settling in. His back-to-back birdies shortly following a wrist injury providing the highlight of the young tournament.
Stewart Cink is 1-under at the end of his round, good for a 13th-place tie, while Chris Kirk has stumbled to 1-over after a double bogey on hole No. 3. Phil Mickelson likewise finished his day 1-over, as did Ross Fisher, who started out among the event's leaders.
Rory McIlroy injured his wrist on hole No. 3 of the 2011 PGA Championship. He's decided to soldier on, and has made it through hole No. 5 -- which he birdied -- before driving off the No. 6 tee.
A physio in a blue polo gave him a quick checkup on the fairway, pulling and poking on his wrist before concluding the young player won't do any more damage to his wrist by continuing. If the only issue is pain and not damage, McIlroy should be able to power through. I say this not having any idea what kind of pain he's in, but rather -- well, you guys know Rory's not going to quit.
He got himself into bunker trouble on hole No. 5, leading one to conclude the wrist really is bothering him, but a fantastic up-and-down nearly gave him an eagle from quite a distance.
Rory McIlroy hurt his right wrist early in his 2011 PGA Championship run. He struck a tree root during a swing, which caused him clear discomfort in his arm. He's attempting to play on, and has made it through a couple holes so far, though at one point he did request a staff member to take a look and is being followed closely by some sort of personnel. One PGA medical official pulled him aside to test his range of motion while checking for pain.
Here's a picture of Rory paying attention to the afflicted limb, via @WorldOfIsaac:
Nobody's going to question McIlroy's toughness and heart after watching him bounce back from his Masters collapse to take the U.S. Open. Bet on him finishing out the first round, but don't be surprised if he's forced to withdraw before action resumes on Friday.
Rory McIlroy, the favorite to win the 2011 PGA Championship, suffered an awkward injury to his hand while trying to escape the trees on Atlanta Athletic Club's hole No. 4. Check the video here -- you can see he gives a rather full swing to a ball that's planted right behind a tree root.
His 7-iron strikes the root, causing him to let it bend and fly away as he looks down at the root, then at his hands. It appears to be a wrist injury, based on how he's holding it and showing it to concerned onlookers.
He's attempting to play on, perhaps just to test his wrist. It's not certain yet whether he'll withdraw, but it's hard to imagine he could put together a solid first round with an injured wrist. We'll update once word becomes available either way.
Local favorite Bubba Watson started the 2011 PGA Championship hot, putting up birdies on four of his first six holes to place himself among the top of the leaderboard. After a disastrous middle and end, however, he's already got some work to do in order to make the cut. Watson is 4-over at the end of his round.
Steve Stricker, however, is hanging on to his lead, cruising to an impressive 7-under through 15 holes. He's followed by Jerry Kelly and Alexander Noren, both 5-under through 14. John Senden and Bill Haas, each 3-under, round out the top five.
Tiger Woods finished his day 7-over. That's not too good! Defending champ Martin Kaymer is even through one hole.
Tourney favorite Rory McIlroy is scheduled to tee off in just a few, with Georgia Tech's Matt Kuchar also among the players left to begin.
Through 10 holes at the PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club, Steve Stricker holds a sizable lead over the field, shooting a 6-under. The Madison, Wisconsin native holds a three-stroke lead over Adam Scott (3-under through 16 holes) and Jerry Kelly (3-under through nine holes). Stricker's on a bit of a hot streak, having won the John Deere Classic last month with a 22-under final score.
Tiger Woods hasn't fared nearly as well, shooting a five-over par through 13 holes; a double-bogey on the par-3 15th hole set him back significantly. Bubba Watson, the former Georgia Bulldog, finds himself tied with 13 other competitors for 18th place with an even par through 12 holes. Rory McIlroy, the favorite to win this event, has yet to tee off; he's slated to do so at 1:45 Eastern.
We're off and running at Atlanta Athletic Club, except running is forbidden at the PGA Championship, so we're walking. Running was highly encouraged at the Towne Lake golf club we used to play at, but we played midnight paintball there so that's probably why.
The leaderboard for Round 1 is starting to take a little bit of a shape, with most of the heavy hitters still yet to take the course. Tiger Woods is looking steady so far, having shot 3-under through five holes. He's tied with Brendan Steele a stroke behind Ross Fisher for the early, early lead. Fisher posted back-to-back birdies twice in his first six holes.
The University of Georgia's Bubba Watson is near the top of the ranks as well, posting a 2-under through four holes. Luke Donald, Steve Stricker and Bill Haas are the other players more than a stroke under par.
The 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club begins at -- hey, look! It already began! TV coverage is set to start at 1 pm ET on TNT, as it will for Friday as well. The broadcast runs until 7 pm ET.
You can also stream video online right now from the PGA website, permitting you to watch Tiger Woods himself (who cares!), Bubba Watson in just a minute or two and so forth. Your boss will never, ever know if you just go ahead and open it up to take a peek at the glorious pines of Johns Creek. Oh, look at those lakes.
Watching it right now is kind of strange because fans are still filing in. Which is so Atlanta. Can't even get to a golf major on time.
The 2011 PGA Championship begins Thursday at the Atlanta Athletic Club, not far from SB Nation Atlanta HQ. Here are Thursday's opening-round tee times for the most notable competitors.
Rory McIlroy, the 10-to-1 favorite to win the event, will tee off at 1:45. Tiger Woods, who trails only McIlroy in the odds as a 20-to-1 favorite, will begin at 8:35. 2010 PGA Championship winner Martin Kaymer is slated to start at 1:15.
Some locals will take part in the PGA Championship as well. Former Georgia Bulldog Bubba Watson, a 50-to-1 favorite, is scheduled to begin at 8:45. Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Stewart Cink (8:05) and Matt Kuchar (1:55) will also take part in the PGA Championship.
CBS and TNT will broadcast the event stateside.
The PGA's official website has complete tee times for the PGA Championship.
Since the 2011 PGA Championship is taking place right in SB Nation Atlanta's backyard over at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, it only makes sense to look at the participating golfers. Currently, the PGA Championship field is filled with all of the likely names including Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and his new rival Adam Scott along with former Georgia Bulldog Bubba Watson.
McIlroy heads into the Championship as the favorite, according to sports betting website Bodog.com, as the oddsmakers have the Northern Ireland native as a 10-to-1 favorite to take place in the four-day event beginning Thursday. Woods isn't far behind at 20-to-1 while Watson comes in as a 50-to-1 favorite.
Watson isn't the only local listed among the participants, though, as Georgia Tech alumni Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar will also be participating along with 11 other golfers who lay claim to Georgia as their place of residence including Davis Love III.
Believe it or not, players besides Tiger Woods will descend upon Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek for the 2011 PGA Championship. British Open winner and future PGA Tour sensation Rory McIlroy is favored to post another major victory, with Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Phil Mickelson also expected to do well. Also in the mix is Adam Scott, but now we're about to just start talking about Tiger Woods again. Famous caddies!
Local favorites include Georgia Tech's Matt Kuchar and Georgia's Bubba Watson, along with the various assemblage of players who live on St. Simons or Sea Island, the sovereign island nations of Southeastern golf.
Keep an eye out for last year's winner, Martin Kaymer, who's surely given himself an advantage to win at AAC thanks to his 2010 victory somewhere in Wisconsin. It's the names of these things that matters most, not the courses themselves. Not a lot of people know that.
The complete 2011 field, followed by alternates:
Fredrik Andersson Hed
Brendon de Jonge
Charles Howell III
Miguel Angel Jimenez
Davis Love III
Seung Yul Noh
Jose Maria Olazabal

The field is set and the action promises to be captivating for the fourth and final major of the 2011 PGA calendar year. The PGA Championship begins on Thursday morning from the Atlantic Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Georgia. See the full field here, and the scheduled pairings and tee times for round one here.
For those of you wondering when and where you can catch coverage of the tournament, here's the television schedule for all four days:
|1||Thursday||Aug. 11||1-7 pm EST||TNT|
|2||Friday||Aug. 12||1-7 pm EST||TNT|
|3||Saturday||Aug. 13||2-7 pm EST||CBS|
|4||Sunday||Aug. 14||2-7 pm EST||CBS|
That's a boatload of coverage for golf fans out there. And something tells me that even though ratings have been down the past two years since the start of Tiger's fall from grace, this weekend could bring a lot of casual fans back into the fold. Tiger Woods is in the field, his former caddie Steve Williams just caused a stir with his comments following Adam Scott's recent triumph at Firestone. There are many sub-plots beyond that, but perhaps Woods has been missing direct and personal motivation lately. Sure, most of the outside world has turned their back on him, but the spat between he and Williams -- the best man at his wedding -- might just stir up his competitive juices in a way that we haven't seen for quite some time. Then again, maybe his game just isn't up to snuff. But I, for one, will be tuning in to see what unfolds in the early stages of the 2011 PGA Championship, hoping that there might be something special in store for the weekend in Atlanta.
By now you're aware Tiger Woods is not playing in the 2011 U.S. Open despite previously planning to power through a knee injury that has been bothering him since at least the Wells Fargo Championship. This has slashed interest in the Congressional tournament, but Woods hopes to heal up in time for the June 30 AT&T National, July 14 British Open and August 11 PGA Championship, the latter of which is highly relevant to local interests, as it's being held in Georgia for only the third time in its history.
The Atlanta Athletic Club's hosting of the 2011 Championship will mark just the fourth time the Johns Creek course has welcomed a major, having also once witnessed the U.S. Open.
Woods hasn't finished an event since the March 14 Tavistock Cup following the Masters, having withdrawn from the May 12 Players Championship. He has four PGA Championship wins in his career, twice winning the tournament back-to-back. In 2001, he finished tied for 29th at the AAC's hosting of the tourney.
