How Will Tiger Fare? Tiger Woods hasnt won a major championship since 2008. Jordy Nelson Jersey . Hes gone 13 majors
without a win in the events he once dominated. Still, hes showing signs that hes
getting closer. He tied for third at the Open Championship and he was the
36-hole leader at the U.S. Open. Whats let him down is his short game,
especially from 125 yards and in. In 2008 when he captured the U.S Open, he was
ranked first in proximity from 50-125 yards. This year, hes 134th. While its
unfair to make a perfect comparison, it does show where his weakness is. “I was
right there at the U.S. Open after two days and I was right there with a chance
at the British Open,” Woods said on Tuesday. “Things have progressed, but still,
not winning a major championship doesnt feel very good.” Will the streak of 16
different winners in 16 majors continue? Has there been a more competitive era
in golf? Not according to the record books. This is the longest stretch of
different winners since they formed the big four. There are scores of different
theories as to why, but it basically comes down to parity. “I just think right
now the fields are very deep,” said Luke Donald, who hopes to become the 17th of
17. ””A lot of guys have opportunities to win. There isnt that one guy that is
really distancing himself from the rest.” Whatever the reason, theres a long
list of players who could easily win this week, extend the streak and it not
make it a surprise: Donald, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods, Matt Kuchar and on and on
it goes. The odds would seem to favour the streak being extended. How will
weather affect the tournament? Its already wet at Kiawah Island. And hot. Really
hot. The weather patterns seem almost impossible to understand. A storm that
will be so intense it rattles the pins in the cups will roll in and five minutes
later, the sun is out. Then it will rain. And then the sun will come out again.
Sometimes it even rains when its sunny. But what we havent had a lot of yet is
wind. Being right on the ocean, this course is usually strafed by winds off the
Atlantic and just about every player is expecting that come Thursday. Because
most of the time the wind is across the holes, the already long course, made
longer by the soft conditions will be that much more difficult. Will a player
with a long putter win the PGA? The odds on this one would say no. There are far
more short putter users than long ones. In fact, the count of winners for 2012
is 27 long and just five short. But three of the last four major champions had
the extendo versions in their bags. If a longie does win, then throw another log
or perhaps some gasoline onto the debate about whether they should be legal or
not. Just a personal thought here but isnt it a bit silly to make a rule for 156
players that will hamper the countless weekend hackers who have enjoyed a
renewal in their game because of the extended shafts in their flat sticks? Can
Adam Scott rebound at the PGA Championship? Remember Rory McIlorys horrific
final round at the Masters last year? The one where he shot 80? The young
Ulsterman returned in June to take the U.S. Open in a walk. Thats what
Adam Scott needs to do, to overcome his meltdown at the British Open. The
affable Aussie is clearly playing well, despite failing over the final four
holes, and set up his year to focus on the majors. If he can return to that part
of his game where he plays very, very well, he can contend. The Ocean Course
suits his game. Aaron Rodgers Jersey . —Dan Quinn birdied
three of his first seven holes Sunday to pull ahead and then stretched his lead
on the back nine to earn a six-point victory over former NFL quarterback Mark
Rypien in the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Charles Woodson Womens Jersey . Strasburg
pitched six innings, but the Rockies rallied for a 4-2 victory over the
Nationals that snapped the right-handers six-start winning streak. “I went out
there and pounded the strike zone,” Strasburg said. http://www.nflnikegreenbaypackers.com/t-j-lang-jersey
. With his bat. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound White Sox slugger is determined to make
sure that his head-shaking struggles during his first season in Chicago are not
affecting his approach in a new year. Alex Green Jersey . Four days after Texas was
eliminated by Baltimore in the AL wild-card playoff, Washington said Tuesday he
thinks his team would still be playing if it had been fresher. C.J. Wilson Jersey . —When the American
Hockey League season started in October, the Norfolk Admirals had a rookie line
comprised of Carter Ashton, Tyler Johnson and Cory Conacher.WASHINGTON—First
baseman Adam LaRoche and left-handed reliever Sean Burnett are free agents after
voiding mutual options in their contracts with the Washington Nationals. LaRoche
bypassed a $10 million option for 2013, while Burnett would have earned $3.5
million next season under his old deal. The Nationals still could sign bothh
players, who can have a chance to test the free-agent market. James Jones Youth Jersey. LaRoches 33 homers
and 100 RBIs helped the Nationals win their first NL East division title this
season, and he collected his first Gold Glove this week. Burnett went 1-2 with a
2.38 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 56 2-3 innings over 70 appearances in 2012. ’ ’ ’
