US PGA Championship - Story of day three

Posted August 17, 2018

Woods finished fourth at the Quicken Loans National at the beginning of July before coming close to ending his 10-year major drought at Carnoustie.

After making a Sunday charge at the PGA Championship that came up just short of a victory - one that would have locked up his spot - Woods said he wants to do much more than just help Furyk call the shots as an assistant when the Americans head to France next month to defend the cup.

Koepka beat Woods by two strokes to become only the fifth player to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be named in Jim Furyk's batch of Ryder Cup wildcards in three weeks' time and the word is that Matt Kuchar will get the nod as well.

And as far back as March, when he was announced as captain of the USA team for next year's Presidents Cup, Woods said he would have " a hard decision to make" should his playing form continue.

ST LOUIS, MO - AUGUST 12: Brooks Koepka of the United States plays his shot from the 17th tee during the final round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on August 12, 2018 in St Louis, Missouri.

As captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, Jim Furyk has four at-large picks to make for the 12-player squad that will compete against European golfers September 28-30 outside Paris.

"To go from not sure if I'm going to play again ... it's mind-boggling", Koepka said.

Tesla Board 'Totally Blindsided' by Musk's Suggestion to Take Company Private
What's more, a deal would likely prompt a review but the Committee on Foreign Investments in the USA , noted the paper. Musk's tweets announcing his intentions to take the company private have prompted a backlash from some investors .

Woods silenced his doubters with his best performance in a major in years. "I was hanging in there, grinding it out trying to make as many birdies as possible".

Despite missing the fairway at the first, Woods hit his approach to 7 feet - and missed the birdie putt. 'That's what we're allowed and I see a lot of value in having all five there.

"Our captain has some decisions to make after the first playoff events", Woods said.

"I was in contention in the last two majors and would never have foreseen that a year ago and I'm just so thankful to be here", Woods said.

I know what you may be thinking, but you can relax - it was a congratulatory tweet! For me the numbers are nice, good to look at, but not always the most important.

"They were loud and they stayed around and it has been incredible", Woods said.

Scott jumps 31 places in the world rankings to 45th, while his new position of 70th on the FedEx Cup standings ensures he continues a ideal record of advancing to the US PGA Tour's playoffs since the series was created in 2007. If he wins a major championship next year, we're not going to be surprised anymore. "So I think what I'll learn from the Open Championship is not to really put a number in mind".

"I remember I went to the British Open when Ben Curtis won (in 2003)". And there are no bigger moments in golf than the Ryder Cup.
