10 Burning Questions

What to look for at this year's PGA Championship at Kiawah

August 2012

Tiger Woods

1. Is Tiger's year a success even if he goes major-less?

Define "success." By the standard of years past, Woods' season could be noted for what he hasn't done. He was a non-factor at the Masters, then squandered promising starts at both the U.S. and British Opens. Then again, Woods has won three times, is first in the FedEx Cup and Ryder Cup points lists, and after a 68-66 finish at the Bridgestone Invitational, appears to be playing well enough to contend at Kiawah. Compare that to last year, when Woods missed two majors because of injury and appeared utterly adrift when he returned for the PGA, and 2012 -- regardless of where Woods finishes this week -- has at least been an encouraging return to normalcy.
