Playing Bellerive 'semi-blind' no problem for Rose

Playing Bellerive 'semi-blind' no problem for Rose

That's where some degree of normalcy returned. Player won the 1965 US Open and Price claimed the 1992 PGA Championship. Woods did it twice.

Fleetwood played with eventual champion Justin Thomas in his opening two rounds at Quail Hollow past year and says he learned "a few things" from watching the American on the way to his first major title.

There are two major championships taking place at the Bellerive Country Club this week.

And when he added the British Open at Royal Birkdale previous year he became the second youngest player after Jack Nicklaus to win three different majors before his 24th birthday.

When Jordan Spieth romped to the Masters title as a 21-year-old in 2015, Sports Illustrated's cover screamed, "The Spieth era begins now".

Thomas hasn't heard that in a while.

Bellerive will be the fifth PGA Championship venue in six years to measure longer than 7300 yards - the other four were won by notable long drivers Justin Thomas, Jason Day and two-time victor Rory McIlroy.

Heavy rains that fell at Bellerive this week hardly slowed its massive greens, which tournament coordinator Kerry Haigh said were running right where he wants them for the PGA Championship.

Somehow, though, the experience left Spieth more inspired than discouraged.

Thomas has come into his own.

"There's going to be certain days that I'm just not going to have the speed and the flexibility and the movement that I once did", Woods 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. "He just had his fourth back surgery, so to get to this point is a phenomenal achievement already".

Playing with Woods - along with Brooks Koepka, J.B. Holmes and what felt like half the state of Missouri - made it a true practice round. I will give two players to target from the $11K-$13K, two targets from the $9K-$11K range, and two from the $8-9K range.

"If you're able to hit the ball well and put the ball in the right sections, you'll see a bunch of birdies".

He took an ice bath.

But he also enters playing well after a joint runner-up finish at the recent British Open. All that did was ratchet up the hysteria that perhaps another major is in the cards.

Thomas, last year's PGA Player of the Year and top money victor, has two other wins this season - the Honda Classic in February and last October's CJ Cup in South Korea.

"It will be pretty insane out there". "But we also know that Sergio is the type of player who can turn it around in a week or two and then all of a sudden he goes on a great run of form". So yeah, it will be a cool week.

Woods, as a vice captain, would recuse himself from any discussions about his viability as a player, Furyk said. And the USA has not won in Europe since 1993 - when the then 29-year-old Love secured the winning point with a 1-up victory over Italy's Costantino Rocca.

"I like the way he's moving the club", added Kostis, who is part of the CBS broadcast team for this week's PGA Championship.

Woods has partnered a variety of players over the years, including Furyk four times at the 2006 Ryder Cup in Ireland.

Only Woods, Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen have achieved the career grand slam.

"This tournament will always be circled until hopefully I win it one day", Spieth told reporters at Bellerive. "The viewer is now seeing and understanding data, like shot apex, that they might have not have known about just a few years ago". I started this year at 11th, I'm back up to fifth.
