Can Sergio Garcia or Rickie Fowler Win A Maiden Major?
Garcia and Fowler have both had great seasons, and a few weeks ago at the British Open, the BFFs ended up tied for second place.
Both charismatic stars are looking to cap off their solid 2014s with their first major victory, and all eyes will be on them at Valhalla to see if they can turn their dreams into reality on Sunday.
How Will Tiger Woods Play?
Last Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Woods had to withdraw from the tournament on the ninth hole due to a back injury he had aggravated on the second. As he limped to his vehicle and winced as he tied his shoes, it was hard to imagine Woods playing this week.
However, on Wednesday, Woods told reporters he is playing in the tournament. In fact, not only does he plan on playing, he plans on winning, as reported by Golf Channel.
Woods is a story no matter where he goes, and it will certainly be worth watching his form this week. But given his struggles this season, it's hard to put much stock in his hopes of winning. More than likely, Woods will be a non-factor at Valhalla.
Can Rory McIlroy Be the First Male Golfer Since Padraig Harrington to Win Back-to-Back Majors?
The last time Woods won back-to-back majors was in 2006, when he won The Open Championship and the PGA Championship in succession. Padraig Harrington repeated that feat in 2008, but since then, no golfer on the PGA Tour has won multiple majors in a year, let alone back-to-back majors.
Rory McIlroy has a great chance to change that this week and provide some much-needed consistent dominance to golf. But can he pull it off?
Will There Be Sunday Drama?
Let's face it: The men's majors this year have not been must-see TV. Bubba Watson was in full control of the Masters on the back nine, nobody got close to Martin Kaymer at the U.S. Open, and Rory McIlroy's lead was insurmountable at The Open Championship last month.
With Tiger's health in question and Dustin Johnson's suspension for cocaine, according to Michael Bamberger and Mike Walker of Golf.com, receiving lots of press, the PGA could certainly use a big duel on the back nine Sunday in hopes that the action on the course will at long last overshadow the drama off of it.
