He showed us power. He showed us touch. The only winning trait
Woods is impatient. He has not won a major since he limped to a playoff victory at the 2008
Woods finally will win a major this year, but it won't come until the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, a brutally difficult track in Rochester, N.Y. Woods will find the victory worth the wait.
He could win two

Too much competition
Of course Tiger is capable of winning a major this year, but so are
Which is why I say Tiger won't win one this year — because he's just another good golfer among the dozens of good golfers who compete weekly on the PGA and European Tours.
Tiger used to be great enough to beat the field and the odds, but no more. The old Tiger was like the
