The 2011 PGA Championship kicks off Thursday, Aug. 11 from the Highlands Course at the Atlantic Athletic Club. It is the first major tournament for Tiger Woods since the Masters back in April, where he finished tied for fourth place. He needs to finish no worse than tied for 14th at the PGA Championship in order to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs, which payout $10 million to the winner.
Woods recently fired his long-time caddy Steve Williams after 13 years of partnering together for tournaments. Williams took up with Adam Scott (they’re pictured above) and commented after Scott’s win at the 2011 Bridgestone Invitational that it was “that’s the best win [he’s] ever had.” He later apologized for the remarks.
Tiger is not amongst the experts’ picks at ESPN. They’ve given the nod to Scott, Jason Day and Lee Westwood, who finished tied for third at the U.S Open in 2011.
