The 2010 PGA Championship could be Woods' last hope
August 12, 2010

After a record-breaking time as World No. 1, Tiger Woods arrives at the PGA Championship after his worst performance in his 14-year-career and it’s hard to believe that will regain the high level that led him to become the number one player in the World Golf Ranking in June 2005.

Woods finished in the No.78 position of 80 contenders in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. However, the American professional golfer is listed among the online betting favorites to win the U.S. PGA Championship 2010, along with Phil Mickelson.

After play in eight tournaments on the PGA Tour, Woods has failed to win any title this year and had a poor performance at the Ohio golf course, where he had won seven times since 1999.

At the age of 34 and after winning 14 Grand Slam titles, Woods seems to be too far away from achieving a win in the fourth and final Major of the season.

Woods has led the world rankings for 270 consecutive weeks, but this has not been good enough to achieve the necessary points for a direct qualification to the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

On the other hand, Mickelson missed a great chance to snatch the number one ranking position from Woods. Phil needed only to finish among the top four in the Bridgestone Invitational, but ended up in the No.46 position.

However, Mickelson and Steve Stricker will have another chance at Whistling Straits.

Finally, Woods will prepare for the last major of the year with a swing coach and this could potentially be the Canadian Sean Foley.

The Canadian coach said that Woods asked him to look at his swing during a practice round for the PGA Championship and that he did so. Foley stood behind and in front of Woods to videotape his swing during two holes.
