Tiger Woods in contention in final round

"Now he has won the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship", Furyk said.

Not yet on the team - officially, at least - is the man Koekpa edged on Sunday, Tiger Woods.

"To win two majors is really incredible", Koepka told CNN Sport. "Most majors the weekends get hard, but I think this course you're going to have to keep shooting birdies". "It was great theatre, really".

The 14-time major champion, eight months into his comeback following spinal fusion surgery, fired a six-under-par 64 in the final round at Bellerive Country Club to finish second to two-time US Open champion Koepka by two shots.

He's a threat at majors or anywhere else.

"For some reason the majors get my attention ..."

He played with a chip on his shoulder this week, with a USA Today piece detailing how he was "pissed off" at his lack of coverage despite winning the U.S. Open and shooting 69 this past Thursday.

Final viewership figures for this year's PGA Championship are expected later Monday afternoon. Furyk will choose three captain's picks next month after the second FedEx Cup playoff event, with the last pick September 10 after the third playoff.

Tiger Woods fan dresses the part at Bellerive's PGA Championship
Woods has not won a major title since the 2008 US Open and has not won any event in five years. "I'm exhausted . But Tiger's putter? It brought more moans than cheers from the fans, and more frustration than joy to Woods.


Four others who previously clinched positions were top-ranked Dustin Johnson, reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed, third-ranked 2017 PGA victor Justin Thomas and second-ranked Brooks Koepka, this year's PGA Championship and US Open victor. Sixth place at the Open Championship, second place at the US PGA. "I didn't know how many tournaments I would play this year or if I would even play".

"He's playing very well", Furyk said. I realize Tiger is a story. "I realise he is playing very well and I am excited to see that".

Woods has said going back to February, when he was named a vice captain, that he wanted to play on the team as well. He also said that when he was appointed a vice captain for the Presidents Cup for the 2017 matches, and no one took him all that seriously.

For the first time since he made his first team in 1995, Mickelson has failed to make the team on points but, along with Woods, is expected to be an at-large selection, meaning there are really only two spots remaining.

I did have a small bet on Francesco Molinari at [100.0] in-running last night and I backed both Scot and Woods at huge prices with a couple of holes to play, just in case something freakish happened but prior to that, the end was a bit nerve-wracking as I didn't back Scott or Woods early on.

"And we've kind of talked about that all year, what's best for Tiger, what's best for the team and we'll make that decision together and we'll move on".

Woods seemed set to stroll past Nicklaus' record of major wins until personal issues and serious back injuries halted the trajectory of one of the game's greatest talents. "Hopefully, my name will be part of that process".

Despite his superb win, the Tiger Woods revival means that his spotlight is far dimmer than it deserves to be.

If you're selected, your room and board will be taken care of and you will also receive a salary. As if we needed any more purrrr-suasion.


Bryson DeChambeau is the unlucky bubble boy for the Americans, with Phil Mickelson following him in 10th. With one decent week in the playoffs, he most likely would be assured of being in all four of the events, ending with the Tour Championship the week before boarding a plane to Paris.

"I have to think he'll get heavy consideration", LaCava said.

While the BBC provided rather imperfect coverage last year for free on terrestrial television, it was broadcast this year by Eleven Sports, established worldwide but now entering the Irish and United Kingdom markets. He missed the cut in his one appearance in 2014. Xander Schauffele is at No. 12. I think it's been a big boost having the best player maybe to ever live following your group and being there for support.

Even with 17 players separated by three shots at one point on the front nine, everyone had to catch Koepka, Woods included.

"Yeah, well, it was kind of.it was so short, first off, and then the fact of I've got.it was kind of, I didn't want it to be in his way because I knew he'd be looking at it".

"Other than me, my team, everybody was rooting for Tiger", said Koepka.

The eight who made the team already make natural partnerships. Watson and Simpson have been partners in both cups.

"A lot of frustration, honestly", he said.

Last week, a Turkish delegation went to Washington and met with USA counterparts, but there was no breakthrough. The entire Turkish public is against US policies that disregard Turkey's legitimate security demands.
