How Many Wins Will Tiger Woods Get in 2012?
For the first time since 2009, Tiger Woods has won at least once in the PGA Tour. However, he has shown inconsistencies throughout the season and his game is far from what it was three years ago.
How many tournaments can he actually win this season? If Woods manages to stay consistent and focused he will win two more tournaments, but do not expect them to be major championships, as his game is not as sharp as these events require.
Tiger has a shot at The Barclays, which will be held in August. In 2009 he was runner-up and a year later he was 12th, even when he was not playing at his best. His game has improved a lot since the last time he appeared in this tourney.
The Deutsche Bank Championship is another event where he has had good results; he has only finished outside the top 15 once, in 2005.
This season he has captured the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Memorial Tournament and the AT&T National. This could be pretty good record for any golfer not named Tiger.
Media and fans expect Woods to be flawless, delivering results and performances for the record books. His first victory after 27 events on the PGA Tour made media and fans think that he was making a comeback.
However, a week later he finished tied for 40th at the Masters Tournament, his worst result in the Tour’s first major since he turned professional. Once again, doubts surrounded the former world No. 1.
After his unfortunate performance at Augusta, Tiger missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship, where he had 50 percent driving accuracy and 1.8 putts per green in regulation.

The next week he tied for 40th at THE PLAYERS Championship, after averaging 29 putts per round and hitting 65 greens in regulation.
It was clear that he was struggling with his short game and just when no one thought he could turn things around, he surprised at the Memorial Tournament. The victory couldn't have come in a better moment, as two weeks later Tiger was set to play the U.S. Open.
Something happened during that 15-day hiatus. Woods went from winning to tying for 21st. He had two sand saves out of 18 possible, hit 58 percent of fairways and struggled on the green, averaging 1.71 putts.
Two weeks later, he went back to winning ways and claimed the AT&T National, which also put him as the second player with most PGA Tour wins, leaving Jack Nicklaus in third place.
Once again, Woods seemed to be back on track but just five days after capturing his 74th victory he didn’t make the cut at The Greenbrier Classic. He lowered his average driving distance from 301 to 295.8, scored 21 pars, six birdies, six bogeys and a double bogey.
With The Open Championship less than a week away, Woods confessed that it was his favorite major, which he has won three times, the last one in 2006 when it was held at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
After that, he records three appearances with the following results: tied for 12th (2007), missed the cut (2009) and tied for 23 (2010).
Eldrick must work hard in his short game and keep the momentum going if he actually wants to add a couple more trophies to his personal case.
