Ryan Fox in red numbers after first round at PGA Championship

Brandt Snedeker

It's important to keep things in perspective and realize that, you know, you could win five times in a year and not win a major, and some people would think, "Well, you haven't won a major" - for some of the elite golfers, anyway.

Arnold Palmer is fourth on the list with 142 appearances, with Raymond Floyd, Sam Snead, Ben Crenshaw, Gene Sarazen, Mark O'Meara, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Sir Nick Faldo completing the list.

"I only had to think about it for about a month", Woods said of the career Slam.

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.

Nicklaus needed just three tries after winning the PGA in '63 to win his first British Open, and Player likewise needed three tries after the '65 U.S. Open to win his first British.

It was a good PGA Championship for a player that had come to expect greatness or at least have greatness expected of him. "I've kept giving myself chances this year". I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted.

"So I've done well, I'm slowly getting back up the world rankings".

"If he could go ahead and win another major with his fifth golf swing, I mean, that's unbelievable".

Liverpool 3-1 Torino: Reds end pre-season with victory at Anfield
Liverpool finished 25 points adrift of champions Manchester City last season, but they have enjoyed a positive pre-season and will open the new campaign in buoyant mood at home to West Ham on Sunday .

"As long as I can get my game and ball into shape, it could be a good week".

Ryan Fox's name was atop the leaderboard at one of golf's majors.

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood is a player who's seemingly in contention every week, yet he's still searching for his first victory on USA soil and his first major championship.

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", Woods said.

"I'm sure Jordan feels a little bit different this week than he does the other three majors, but that's normal", McIlroy said.

Even Woods will have to re-learn have to win Majors and McIlroy is nothing but impressed by the 14-time Major winner's recovery from injury.

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more". I didn't really have those issues when I was early in my career because I didn't have a fixed point in my back.

"A lot of careers are defined on major championships".
