It's time for golf's final major event of the 2013 season, and all eyes are on one person: Tiger Woods.
He's been the best player in golf, there's no denying that. Five tournament wins, in only 11 starts, including one by a whopping eight strokes last week at WGC-Bridgestone. He's on top of the World Golf Ranking, by a lot. He's on top of the 2013 PGA Tour Money List, also by a lot.
But because he hasn't won in a major yet, some still see his year as a failure so far. He's played well at majors, tying for fourth at The Masters and for sixth at the British Open, and he's won the tournament semi-seriously called "The Fifth Major," The Players Championship, but he hasn't taken one of the big ones. And as long as his drought, now over five years old, continues, people will continue to talk.
Woods tees off at 8:35 a.m. Thursday, so his round will almost certainly be over when TNT comes on the air at 1 p.m. But his play will be available online -- his group along with Keegan Bradley and Davis Love III is the morning's featured group -- and here's how to catch it:
