11 Things We Definitely Thought Were Going To Happen That Didn't

April 2014
Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods will break Jack Nicklaus' major championship mark with ease

At the start of the 2008 season, the bigger question wasn't whether Tiger would catch Jack's record of 18 majors, but whether he'd do it by the close of the decade. Woods was coming off his 13th at the PGA at Southern Hills, and with Augusta and Torrey Pines awaiting, it seemed inevitable his major momentum would continue. It didn't quite work out that way, of course. Woods did win the U.S. Open at Torrey, but he also blew out his knee and missed the rest of the season. Then came the sex scandal of 2009, and the only thing that's stayed the same for Woods since is still being stuck on 14.
