Tiger Woods Should Not be Favorite at PGA Championship After Win at Bridgestone

Well, well, well; the old Tiger Woods decided to show up at the Bridgestone Invitational this past weekend for a dominant seven-stroke victory and his 79th career PGA Tour win. So of course, everyone is saying he’s primed to win his 15th major this weekend at the 2013 PGA Championship, but let’s tap the brakes on that.

Didn’t we say that when he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational? And then what happened at the 2013 Masters? Tiger came up short.

Even after his disastrous finish at the Memorial Tournament, folks still said Tiger had a great shot to win the 2013 U.S. Open and look how that turned out.

And don’t even get me started on the 2013 British Open. Dude choked harder than Phil Mickelson at every U.S. Open in recent memory.

So why in the world is everyone just assuming Tiger will continue his dominant play at Oak Hill, the course he’s already criticized because the greens aren’t as fast as he likes them. We’ve been through this, folks: Tiger is now a complainer, which is a blatant sign that he’s no longer the best golfer in the world. Sure, he may look like it at tournaments like the Bridgestone, but that Tiger doesn’t show up on Sundays during major tournaments anymore.

Tiger could prove the doubters wrong this weekend and lay the choker jokes to rest…but he won’t.
