Ron Sirak, the executive editor of Golf World Magazine, joined the Norris and Davis Show on Baltimore’s 105-7 THE FAN Thursday morning to discuss the PGA Championship. When asked if Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the major, Sirak tells that Woods has been unable to break 70 on the weekends recently. He thinks that this is going to be a big event for Woods.
Sirak believes that Woods has been the player of the year so far in the midst of breaking Jack Nicklaus’ record for career majors. He believes that, while we will never see the unbeatable Tiger Woods again, that Woods is still the best player in the world, regardless of other players like Rory McIlroy. In fact, Sirak thinks McIlroy is too nice of a person to be a great player because he isn’t selfish.
Sirak believes there are two things that motivate Phil Mickelson: winning majors and beating Tiger Woods. However, Sirak believes Mickelson has the potential to be a non-factor in the championship depends on which version of Mickelson shows up – the non-factor or the dominant one.
