Jim Furyk says Tiger Woods still in running for Ryder Cup

Seven of the past eight PGA Championship winners have been first-time major champions and world No 7 Rahm could well add to that statistic.

Woods, a four-time victor of the PGA Championship, recently finished tied for sixth at The Open Championship for his best result at a major in five years. And there were parents with a stroller and crying kid, the parents hoping they could get through the day to then someday say, "You were there!" "I guess it focuses you straight away. Looking forward to watching it all unfold!"

The year's fourth and final major already is here.

The American Express Championship at Bellerive is now so long ago that few players there that week are still playing.

"It was a lot of me talking and saying it's hard and it's sometimes uncomfortable because the smallest things bother us", Thomas said.

"If you're able to hit the ball well and put the ball in the right sections, you'll see a bunch of birdies".

"I have walked each nine and got some visuals".

Woods, a 14-time major champion, has not won a major since the 2008 US Open and hasn't won any event since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.

The 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale was Spieth's last triumph and a keen reminder of his mercurial golf, after he squandered a three-shot lead in four holes only to channel his most sublime play to seize the Claret Jug. He had to learn how to swing.

"Obviously, to see Francesco winning The Open was a fantastic moment for Francesco, but when you sit on the sidelines as captain, you want to see guys do well in the big championships", Bjorn said. And honestly, you kind of have to look at some intangibles and stuff you can't really quantify.

The golf will be more formal than Wednesday's all-inclusive go-round and we don't know if Woods has had enough practice time to get things completely straightened out. Woods hasn't played the tournament since 2015.

"It will always be circled to complete the career Grand Slam, which will ultimately achieve a life-long goal for me, so certainly emphasis in my head on it, but nothing overpowering", Spieth said.

But he also enters playing well after a joint runner-up finish at the recent British Open. "I've kept giving myself chances this year".

Rose admitted it's a different way to approach a major championship, but the victor of the 2013 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills has been in enough of those that he knows what to expect.

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. These guys are multitalented and can move it one way or another to get to where they need to go.

That could reduce some edge for big hitters.

Bumpy greens could be a concern, Woods said. "So it doesn't come as a surprise to me or to the team that's going to play for the European side, but the American team is going to be great".
