Tiger Woods arrives at the PGA Championship this week in search of a 16th major win, a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour event victory and, perhaps, a shot at redemption.
The last time Tiger played in the PGA Championship, he failed to make the cut after shooting rounds of 72 and 73, respectively, at Bethpage State Park in May 2019. It was an especially painful outing, considering it was his first event after winning The Masters. Which begs the question: How will he fare this week, over a year removed from his last major and with only five PGA Tour events under his belt this season?
Tiger’s 2020 campaign has been a mixed bag. It started with a win at the ZOZO Championship in October — followed by top-10 finishes in the Hero World Challenge and Farmers Insurance Open — before disappointing outings at The Genesis Invitational and Memorial Tournament. That said, Tiger has won at TPC Harding Park each of the two times he has played a PGA Tour event there: the 2005 WGC-American Express Championship and the 2009 Presidents Cup.

Tiger Woods score, highlights from Round 1
Hole 10: Par 5, 562 yards
Shot 1: And we’re off. Tiger is a little to the left off the tee, slightly into the rough, but he has plenty of room to adjust.
Shot 2: Tiger goes after the ball with a 3-wood, but the shot is short and right. That’ll be tough to salvage birdie from here. He’s clearly not pleased with it either:
Shot 3: And Tiger’s shot is a beauty — he lobs it on the green 6 feet from the pin. Very makeable birdie attempt coming up.
The silence is … deafening.
