On a day where neither Tiger nor Phil was in contention to win the year’s final major, this year’s PGA Championship had enough story lines for the entire season. There was the cool; under 20 crowd that includes Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Martin Kaymer and, Rory McIlroy.

There was also news that Tiger Woods went as low as 5 under in an attempt to catch the leaders, but ended up bogeying his way to 2 under and another average finish. Phil continued to fight arthritis and finished 6 under par for the tourney. Only one major this year for Phil, but it was probably the one he wanted the most in the Masters.

Today belonged to the youngsters again. Nick Watney, another 20 something, started the day with the clubhouse lead at 13 under. He was paired with Dustin Johnson as they both had chances to walk out of Sheboygan, Wisconsin with the first major championship of their young lives.

Last weekend Tiger Woods played the worst golf of his career. Eldrick shot 18 over par in four days and even hit a spectator in the mouth with one of his golf balls. Not on purpose of course, but he was so errant with his shots that the guy was hit with one of Tiger’s wild golf balls.

It’s getting bad for Woods. He has yet to win in 2010 and people are already saying that it’s the end for the 14 time major winner. This week Tiger will take his talents to Sheboygan, Wisconsin where this year’s PGA Championship will be played. Whistling Straits is the golf course and it’s the last major of the golf season. If there is any time for Tiger to make his move, that time is now. Whistling Straits represents a new challenge for Eldrick, but I’m not sure if that’s what he needs right now.
