Tiger Woods Rory McIlroy Tonight Show Jimmy Fallon

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (Jason Sobel/Golf Channel) — As Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy met the media for a Nike product launch at Liberty National Golf Club on Monday evening, more than one attendee noted that the Statue of Liberty looming in the background could have symbolized not only freedom and independence, but a not-so-subtle passing of the torch.

This was not long after the world's erstwhile No. 1 and its current top-ranked player traded barbs during a taping of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," with McIlroy landing a seemingly innocuous blow to Woods' dominance by painting it in the past tense.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Paul Newberry/AP) — The divide between golf's two biggest names just keeps growing.

There's Rory McIlroy, shooting another round in the 60s and looking very much like the man to beat at the PGA Championship.

Then there's Tiger Woods, spraying shots all over Valhalla and now most concerned with making it to the weekend.

Clearly, they are two players heading in very opposite directions.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods surveyed his options from so far left of the fairway he was up to his ankles in grass in a hazard he didn't even know was there.

He could take it over the trees and go sideways, but it might be tough to keep it in the fairway.

"What about left gallery?" Woods asked his caddie.

"That's actually not bad," Joe LaCava replied.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Barely able to tie his shoes three days ago, Tiger Woods is ready to tee it up in the PGA Championship.

Woods caused the biggest sensation of the week Wednesday afternoon simply by driving his silver SUV into the parking lot at Valhalla. He has never arrived so late for a major championship and had so little time to prepare — just nine holes at Valhalla, which he had not seen since winning the PGA Championship in 2000.

But at least he's playing.
