Tiger Woods has made plenty of headlines as of late due to his quick recovery from his brutal car crash last year. The sheer fact that he was even able to participate in the Masters was extraordinary. However, Woods is now getting to the point where he is ready to seriously start contending once again. And his competition will not be easy at the PGA Championship, as it was announced that Rory Mcllroy and Jordan Spieth will join Tiger Woods in a star-studded grouping.
The trio will play together in the first two rounds of the tournament.
“Six weeks is a long enough time to recover from that week and then build yourself back up again. He certainly hasn't chosen two of the easiest walks in golf to come back to, Augusta and here. But no, he's stubborn, he's determined. This is what he lives for. He lives for these major championships, and if he believes he can get around 18 holes, he believes he can win.”
Mcllroy was once considered one of the best golfers in the PGA. He has struggled as of late but still has the potential to top the leaderboard at any given event.
At 28 years old, Jordan Spieth can become the third youngest PGA golfer ever to complete a career grand slam. The only golfers who were younger when they accomplished the feat were the great Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
So this will be a grouping with plenty of attention on it. All three golfers will aim to make the cut at the PGA Championship and then make a run at winning the tournament over the weekend.
