The Golf Blog says: 7 years, and counting. The last time Tiger Woods won a major, George W. Bush was President. 7 years is the longest majors drought of Tiger’s career. Jack Nicklaus never had a majors drought as long (unless you count the years after he won his final major in 1986).

Tiger’s still coming off his back surgery and injury, but the writing is on the wall for Tiger, who will soon turn 39 years of age: Time to go back to Butch Harmon.

The Golf Blog says: Rory McIlroy has the 36 hole lead (-9) at the PGA Championship, one shot better than Jason Day and Jim Furyk. Rickie Fowler is back on the leader board in the majors at -7, continuing his stellar play under Butch Harmon. Phil Mickelson is also in contention at -6, coming off his 62 finish at the Bridgestone Invitational last week.

But Rory is in the driver seat. If he puts the pedal to the metal this weekend, he will win his 4th major and 2nd of the year, a few weeks after winning the British. Can Jason, Rickie, Phil or someone else chase down Rory?

-9 Rory McIlroy
-8 Jim Furyk, Jason Day
-7 Ryan Palmer, Mikko Ilonen, Rickie Fowler
-6 Phil Mickelson, Bernd Wiesberger
-5 Lee Westwood, Steve Stricker

The Golf Blog: Jack Nicklaus says Rory McIlroy has talent to win 15 to 20 majors

The Golf Blog says: Jack Nicklaus is a good judge of talent. And now he says that Rory McIlroy can win 15 to 20 majors if he stays focused on golf. “I think Rory is an unbelievable talent. I love his swing, I love his rhythm, I love his moxie. He’s got a little swagger there, it’s a little bit cocky but not offensive. I like that. I like the self-confidence in a young man. He’s got an unbelievable amount of speed in his golf swing, he obviously hits the ball a heck of a long way. And he hits in there consistently and how he controls it.

“It depends on what he feels his priorities are and that’s his call. I think Rory has an opportunity to win 15 or 20 majors or whatever he wants to do if he wants to keep playing. But you just don’t know what the guy’s priorities are going to be in life 10 years from now.”

Not sure if it was intentional, but 15 would be more than where Tiger currently stands. Jack also said he thought Tiger had 10 more years of majors if he stays healthy. “That’s 40 — at least 40 — majors to win. I believe Tiger will do that IF his health remains good. Nobody every wants their records broken, that’s obvious. But I don’t want him to NOT break the records because he’s not healthy. That’s certainly not in the cards of what I would like to see. Or what anybody would like to see.”
