Ken Duke has had a life time of adversity to overcome to get to where he is today. Diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age, Duke had a 16-inch metal rod surgically attached to his spine at the age of 15. Despeite the disability, and the metal rod, Duke still played high school golf in his native Arkansas and even managed to turn pro in 1994. After bouncing around on mini tours around the world, he finally made it to the PGA tour in 2004 at the age of 35.

While Tiger Woods won five times on the PGA Tour in 2013, bringing his total number of years winning at least five events to 10, he extended his majorless streak to 18 in a row.

Woods will have his eye on two important records in 2014. The Jupiter Island resident enters the year only three wins shy of Sam Snead's all time mark of 82 career PGA Tour wins and he will also look to win a major for the first time since 2008. He currently sits at 14, four behind Jack Nicklaus' record.

Woods has had a history of success at all four of this year's majors locations. He has won four times at Augusta National. He also has a victory at Valhalla, winning the 2000 PGA Championship and at Royal Liverpool, winning the 2006 Open Championship. The only major venue

Entering the day four shots back of home town hero Adam Scott, the Palm Beach Gardens resident shot a 6-under 66 to beat Scott by one stroke and spoil Scott's chance of winning his home country's triple crown.
