SHEBOYGAN---Tiger Woods knows the concept
of going through a transition, just not the num-
bers associated with this one.
His world ranking is No 278. Throw out some
of the past champions and the 20 club pros at the
PGA Championship, and his ranking is the worst
of all but two players at Whistling Straits---Nick
Taylor and Darren Clarke.
He has not won a tournament in two years, and
he has only one top 10 on the PGA Tour since.
And while his winless streak in the majors is at
23 dating to the 2008 US Open, only once in the
last six years has he gone into the final round
within three shots or fewer of the lead. That was
at Muirfield two years ago, and he closed with a
74 to finish five shots behind. This is the new
world of Woods at the majors. Expectations are
lower than ever.
There wasn t a lot of talk about Woods winning
the PGA Championship. His main theme was
taking baby steps.
"I m just trying to get better," Woods said after
playing nine holes with Davis Love III. "I m just
trying to get up there where I can win tournaments,
get my game organized so I can be consistent on
a tournament basis where I m going to give myself
a chance to win each and every event I play in.
That s what I have done over most of my career.
And I d like to get to that point again where I could
Woods comes to PGA with modest goal: get better
TORONTO---Top-ranked Serena Williams rebound-

Goffin, Dmitrov advance in Montreal
MONTREAL---Seeded players David Goffin and Grig-
or Dmitrov advanced to the second round of the
Rogers Cup on a wet Tuesday at Uniprix Stadium.
Goffin, seeded 13th, topped Steve Johnson 6-2, 6-
2 when play began after a rain delay, and the 14th-
seeded Dmitrov downed Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4,
7-5. Richard Gasquet, seeded 11th, withdrew due to
an illness. He was replaced in the draw by French
compatriot Nicolas Mahut.
Goffin advanced to a meeting with American Sam
Querrey. Dmitrov will face American Jack Sock, a 6-
2, 2-6, 7-6 (5) winner over Adrian Mannarino.
Also, Nick Kyrgios had a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 victory
over Fernando Verdasco to set up a match against
third-seeded Stan Wawrinka. Mikhail Youzhny beat
Viktor Troicki 6-3, 7-5. (AP)
Even if expectations are low, he is still Tiger Woods.
He had one of the largest galleries for a morning
practice round at Whistling Straits, and he stopped
to sign autographs heading to the next tee, which is
unusual for him. Hundreds of fans stood below the
steps of the media center when they saw Woods
walk in, all of them holding flags for him to sign.
Woods, who turns 40 at the end of the year, made
it clear at the Memorial (where he shot a career-high
85) that he was in this for the long haul. Different
from past swing changes is that he is coping with
what he keeps calling a "perfect storm" because the
switch followed back surgery and recovery that cost
him half the 2014 season.
Steve Stricker played with him two days at The
Greenbrier Classic, where Woods tied for 32nd while
posting his lowest 72-hole score (273) since his last
"He s going through some down times," Stricker
said. "It looks like he s getting things pushed back
into shape and he s getting stronger and healthier.
I ve talked to him. He s feeling better. And it s just
about getting that confidence level back, him settling
on what he wants to do with his swing and going
from there, and then that confidence level will come
back. ... I expect him to get it back and get it going
Still, it s odd for Woods to be at a major and attract
so little attention.
The majors this year have been about Jordan Spieth,
the Masters and US Open champion who missed by
one shot a chance at the third leg of the Grand Slam
at St. Andrews. Still in play at Whistling Straits is
a chance to sweep the US majors, which has never
Rory McIlroy, the world s No 1 player, returns from
an ankle injury that has kept him out since the US
Open. Dustin Johnson has had at least a share of the
lead in four rounds at the majors this year and comes
back to the course where a two-shot penalty on the
final hole cost him a spot in the playoff.
Zach Johnson goes for back-to-back majors. Jason
Day is trying to win his first after being in contention
in the last two. (AP)
