Thomas seeks successful US PGA Championship title defence alongside Woods and McIlroy

PGA Championship odds

"I needed that day off in the ice bath trying to get some inflammation down". And a lot of stretching. "Did a leg lift yesterday as well and was ready to go for today". "If I were on the other (European) side, I wouldn't want him picked, so that's another good reason".

He walked each nine at Bellerive Country Club, though, and he thinks that's good enough. Woods played only five holes on the course he last saw the day after the September 11 terrorist attacks, a few hours before the American Express Championship was canceled. He was feeling so good about his game that he took an all-or-nothing shot out of a pot bunker on the 10th hole that he thought might be a deciding moment, and he pulled it off.

Ninth-ranked Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson, the 2012 US Open champion, hold the last two places but a host of rivals are within reach, the nearest being Bryson DeChambeau and five-time major victor Phil Mickelson.

It's been like that all year. Since missing the cut at the British Open, Johnson has won the RBC Canadian Open and tied for third in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

His health has held up nicely, especially coming off his fourth back surgery.

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", said Woods, following a rain interrupted practice round on Tuesday. So things are going to be different from day to day, and it's just about managing it. "I disappoint a lot of people".

Eighth-ranked Spieth could become the first to finish the Career Slam at a PGA and do it on the same course where South Africa's Player did by winning the 1965 US Open. He would join Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen in the feat with a victory. When you're hitting it 370 down the middle of the fairway, you should be able to figure out how to get it on the green somewhere close.

Probably back-to-back tournaments. That has been proven over the history of golf to be the hardest thing, because the press notifies you right away what you are trying accomplish. He's building up all that. "So that's all I'm going to say".

Woods and McIlroy have won the same number of majors over the past four years - none.

MacLaren and Pratt will still remain attached to the project, with Chopra staying on if the scheduling ultimately works out. He already has Jurassic World with Universal , which released Fallen Kingdom this summer to huge box office numbers.

McIlroy since then has played in the final group three times, including at the Masters.

All of a sudden, Woods is relevant again thanks to a T-6 at the British Open. 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.

It's unlikely one of the six South Africans in the field is going to make it three from three at Bellerive for Africa‚ but golf is one sport where form does not necessarily translate to success.

"We'll see", said Woods, who only played five holes before his practice round Tuesday was wiped out by thunderstorms. "I didn't get up here pre-Open and (Monday) I took the day off".

Spieth during a practice round prior to the 2018 US PGA Championship.

"Being seven years old, I don't remember a whole lot that I was thinking, but I do remember how cool it was, hearing the roars...and the shots Tiger was hitting, the putts he was making", Thomas said during a media conference.

"My last couple of wins, or maybe previous year probably is when".

In singles, however, where he can be the lone wolf, Woods is 4-1-2, hardly a co-incidence one would think. "I'm looking for 12 guys that will really accept the challenge ahead of us because it's been 25 years since we won in Europe". He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 24 of those rounds in the 60s, 30 under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.
