Tiger still excites rivals as 100th PGA showdown looms

Justin Thomas poses with the Gary Player Cup trophy after holding his nerve to win the Bridgestone Invitational

Justin Thomas poses with the Gary Player Cup trophy after holding his nerve to win the Bridgestone Invitational

Furyk said earlier this year he talked with Woods, who is a Ryder Cup vice captain, about the possibility of him playing in this year's event.

The 25-year-old American is the most complete player in the world at present, and his scoring averages this season have been remarkable.

The other was Woods, who has done it twice.

The PGA Championship began as a match-play event in 1916 but then went on hiatus for two years due to a little thing called World War I. Thus, this week's event is the 100th PGA Championship and it's also the last one for the foreseeable future that will be played in August and as the fourth of the four major championships on the PGA Tour's schedule. The par-3 sixth is Bellerive's shortest hole at 213 yards, and with little room for error, can be one of its most hard.

'I think you've got a battle of two giants, ' Furyk said in his pre-tournament press conference at Bellerive.

Thomas hasn't heard that in a while.

Tiger Woods at times looks similar to the guy who won the PGA Championship four times among his 14 major titles, except for the results. A staple of PGA Championship events are steep greens and Bellerive is no exception. "It's just what are my limitations going to be", he said.

This is a deep friendship that transcends any rivalry, and Thomas was never overly bothered by the mention of being Spieth's close friend. I feel like I had a much easier time choosing players from Group D for The Open Championship, even if one of my three missed cuts came from that group.

There remains another shadow that was even stronger at Bellerive, and Thomas fully expects that.

The injury speculation on Twitter was rampant, but Woods confirmed on Saturday that he felt "fine", and chalked up his performance to playing "like crap".

In this article, I will present to you some players to consider from each price tier for your PGA DFS action.

Kostis should know. He helped his own son, who had a similar procedure in nearly the exact same place in his lower back, make the same kind of adjustments to his swing.

Woods, set to be an assistant captain alongside Love in September's showdown with Europe at France's Le Golf National, must win the Wanamaker trophy for a record-tying fifth time to earn a berth on the USA squad on points.

Just over two weeks ago, Woods had full control of his shots and moved into the lead during the middle of the final round at the British Open. All that did was ratchet up the hysteria that perhaps another major is in the cards.

"I would rather do that than have one hot week and, yes, you win a major".

"It will be pretty insane out there".

The PGA Championship could do itself - and the game - a lot of good by adopting an global schedule. So yeah, it will be a cool week.

"Obviously, to see Francesco winning The Open was a fantastic moment for Francesco, but when you sit on the sidelines as captain, you want to see guys do well in the big championships", Bjorn said.

The U.S. team has not won a Ryder Cup on the road since 1993, when Davis Love III, now 54, made a putt at The Belfry in England to seal a U.S. victory.

It has been 99 years since the PGA Championship was won by an Englishman, Jim Barnes. He's a four-time PGA Championship victor, with the last in 2007. Before Tiger's personal troubles and physical ailments derailed his career, he was a shoe-in to pass Nicklaus for most major titles.

"It's the last opportunity to win one", Justin Rose said.

Jordan Spieth is also bidding to become only the sixth golfer to win all four majors with a PGA Championship success. "I think, in my generation we were all looking up to him, especially around 2000, 2001, 2002", offered an unruffled Molinari. "If you find yourself in contention down the stretch, you'll be fully aware of what this means".
