PGA Championship: Will today be the day Tiger wins from behind?

Tiger-Woods-Open-Championship-Day-2

A friendly reminder: Tiger Woods has never won a major championship when he trails the lead after 54 holes.

He entered the final round of the 94th PGA Championship five shots in back of Rory McIlroy, who has dared wear Woods' trademark Sunday red shirt. (Red is a color of Ulster, so don't send me nasty letters.)

The question is if this is the day Woods puts it all together from behind on the final day of a major, catches McIlroy and wins a fifth Wanamaker trophy.

Woods' best final round in a major championship is 65, shot to close out at Muirfield in the 2002 Open Championship. That course was over 700 yards shorter than Pete Dye's Ocean Course test on Kiawah Island. He finished T-28 that week.

In the 14 majors Woods has won, he has shot a final-round 67 three times - the 2000 U.S. Open and PGA Championship, as well as the '06 Open Championship.

Heading into this season, Woods averages 71.15 strokes in the 39 majors he made the weekend cut and trailed entering the final round.
