PGA Championship Performance Solidifies Tiger Woods' Ryder Cup Chances

PGA Championship Performance Solidifies Tiger Woods' Ryder Cup Chances

Now, by sweeping up the Open and the PGA, he joins Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen and Tiger Woods as the only men to have won both in the same season.

Tiger Woods chips onto 14th green during the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club on Sunday in St. Louis.

Kisner, who contended for much of the PGA, is the kind of fearless bulldog Furyk should want on his team.

Dustin Johnson - the No. 1 player in the world - Masters champ Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and 2018 Players Championship victor Webb Simpson were the other seven automatic qualifiers named to Furyk's squad. Now that Woods is trying to write a redemption narrative, he has more fans than ever before because people see him as an underdog trying to win his 15th major. "You want the very best players that you have the trust in as well". But after the scrambling, club-slamming, fist-pumping, electrifying show he put on over a round of 6-under 64 - his best closing round at a major - who can argue that golf isn't more fun when Tiger's in the mix? Really what we wanted to talk about today was the top eight players. "I'm looking at pairings". What's notable is Tiger's putting stats over the three events he's played with it.

After finishing in a tie for sixth in the 100th PGA Championship, Woodland finished 19th in the final Ryder Cup standings. His game is trending. "I realise that right now we are here to celebrate the top eight players, but he's hard to ignore".

"Going from that to even being able to play this year to this, it's absolutely mind blowing", Koepka said.

Orca whale mother's 'tour of grief' over after almost 3 weeks
After carrying her deceased baby for at least 17 days and 1,000 miles, an orca mother has shown signs of returning to normal. Researchers with the Canadian and US governments and other organizations tracked her all the while, the Seattle Times wrote.


Woods had already been confirmed as a non-playing vice-captain for the USA.

On Monday's "Off the Bench", Danny Kanell breaks down Woods' near win.

"He priceless, to be honest with you", Furyk said.

"I thought I might see a riot", wrote the fan, who posted the video to Reddit under the username carpedonnelly.

"So he's a huge value and someone - I rely on every vice captain heavily". So I will have five. "I think there's a lot of folks out there who probably think he can help us. So I will have five".

Brooks Koepka has had to get used to playing slightly under the radar, but has now won three major titles in less than two years. It's an accident of history just as Bobby Jones' grand slam of the two Opens (British and US) and the two amateurs (same) was an accident of history.

President Trump visits Fort Drum
But he did take one swipe at the media when he pointed out reporters covering his speech. "I'm so proud of myself", Trump said. Earlier Trump tweeted that he was "looking forward" to talking to America's "great heroes" and signing H.R. 515, the " John S.


Elliott admitted he was anxious when Koepka was forced to sit out the first four months of the year with a wrist injury. "So as a captain [early in 2018], I'm scratching my head and I'm anxious".

Brooks Koepka won the 2018 PGA Championship.

"I didn't think he had a hope in hell of winning another major and now you have to say he does", Faldo said. Right from the moment he got healthy this year he hit the tour running. It's great to have him on the team.

Schauffele missed out on his third major top-10 of the season at Bellerive after a disappointing final-round 72, but he would fit nicely into Furyk's line-up alongside fellow youngsters Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

Key in Bjorn's thoughts must be Sergio García, routinely a key player but woefully out of sorts and form.

DeChambeau suffered a worrying shoulder injury which forced him to pull out of the John Deere Classic, although he still travelled to Carnoustie and made the cut despite clearly being at odds with his swing - as demonstrated in the infamous footage of him struggling during practice.
