Woods is coming into the tournament after dealing with a small injury from the Bridgestone that happened on an awkward shot in a bunker, but he got treatment and now is playing at the PGA. Woods missed the US Open and the Masters this year while recovering from back surgery and he had a rough go of it at the British Open after coming back a couple weeks before and now he is trying to at least have a solid weekend at Valhalla.

Woods has won at Valhalla before, but he is a long way from the players he once was and now he is hoping that this tournament gives him a boost. McIlroy is coming into the tournament on a two win streak and it comes after he took the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool and then the Bridgestone Invitational last week. Woods won that tournament last year and that was a good season for him, but he has had a tough one this year.

Woods won five times last season on Tour and three of those were before the Masters at Augusta and he also got his number one ranking back from McIlroy, but obviously that's gone now. Woods now is looking to just get some positive play under his belt and this tournament can give him the chance to do that. McIlroy is on a great streak right now and his year has been fantastic and he really could cap it with another major win here.

Jack Nicklaus has given McIlroy some high praise coming into the tournament and he says he could win 10 more majors by the time his career is up. The two have gotten to know each other over the past couple years while McIlroy has been living in Florida and he says that he should be around for a long time winning majors and that he could be a person who chases the record eventually. McIlroy now has three majors to his name after winning the British this year and he has already won the PGA Championship and the only one he is missing is The Masters.
