So Much For Tiger Woods Winning His 15th Major At the 2013 PGA Championship

Yesterday, I wrote an article about Tiger Woods breaking the course record at Oak Hill in the 2013 PGA Championship. Yeah, so much for that and so much for Woods winning his 15th major this weekend.

Woods still might win his 15th major at the PGA Championship, but he is going to have to wait until next year to do so. Hopefully he wins one of the other majors by then.

The biggest reason why I predicted Woods to break the course record is because just like many people, I have so much faith in him breaking Jack Nicklaus‘ record for most majors won. Not to mention, he is the best golfer in the game. Add to the fact that he had to have a big round today to get back into contention.

Seeing that he shot a 70 on the day and is still at plus-1, that did not happen. He did move up the leaderboard, though, so at least there is that.

However, it does not help when the leader is at 9-under. Jason Dufner had a great day shooting 63, which actually did break the previous course record of 64.

I am sure this has been a very frustrating tournament so far for Woods as it has been for all of the fans out there that want to see him finally win his 15th. However, it seems like he is going to have to wait another golf season before that happens because he is so far out of the lead and he has never come back at a major in the final round–there are still two rounds left for the record.
