In his first appearance since winning the 2019 Masters for his 15th career major title, Tiger Woods is back on the course this week in New York at the 101st PGA Championship at historic Bethpage Black.
Woods has won the PGA Championship four times in 19 appearances, claiming victory in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007.
Woods has fared well in his last three majors, tying for sixth at the 2018 Britsh Open, finishing runner-up at the 2018 PGA Championship and securing his fifth green jacket at the Masters last month.
As he takes another step towards Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major championships, we take a look at how Woods fared in his previous appearances.At Bellerive, Tiger made eight birdies in his 6-under 64 on Sunday, tying for the day’s low round. He climbed the leaderboard to finish solo second at 14-under 266, two shots behind champion Brooks Koepka. The runner-up was Woods’ seventh in a major and the third time he’s come in second at the PGA Championship.
Limited due to injuries in the 2015 season, Woods missed the cut (75-73) at Whistling Straits. Jason Day became the fifth Australian to win the PGA Championship after a final-round 68. He’s the first to finish a major 20-under par.
After undergoing microdiscectomy surgery on his back in March, Woods struggled in his seven starts during the 2014 season. In his final start that season, he missed the cut at the PGA Championship at Valhalla. Rory McIlroy won his second consecutive major championship, beating Phil Mickelson by one when Mickelson’s chip for eagle just missed on the 18th.
Jason Dufner shot a 63 on Friday to take the 36-hole lead and then held off Jim Furyk to win by two at Oak Hill. Woods was 10 shots back heading into the weekend and wasn’t really a factor on the leaderboard, finishing T40.
At Kiawah, Tiger held a share of the second-round lead after opening with 69-71. But over the weekend he fell back to T11 after rounds of 74-72. At all four majors that season, Woods failed to break par during his weekend rounds. McIlroy went bogey-free during his final 23 holes to blow away the field in an eight-shot victory.
For the first time in 11 years, Tiger Woods has the opportunity to win back-to-back major titles.
The Masters champion begins his quest for the 2019 PGA Championship Thursday morning alongside Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari.
Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele are some of the other marquee names set to tee off during Thursday’s morning session at Bethpage Black.
Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Jason Day are in one of the two must-see groups in the afternoon set of tee times. Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth are included in the other.
All of the sport’s top golfers will be looking to get out to a fast start, similar to what Woods did at Bethpage Black on his way to winning the 2002 U.S. Open.
