Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

Justin Thomas is back to defend his title, Jordan Spieth is trying to complete his career Grand Slam, and fan favorites such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy should provide plenty of roars around the course.

Just the sixth golfer to shoot a 63 at a U.S. Open, Fleetwood finished a stroke behind victor Brooks Koepka earlier this year at Shinnecock Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y. In 2017, he placed fourth at the U.S. Open.

"I mean, I've kept giving myself chances this year". "I was fresh, in form, going to a place where if I worked up the leaderboard I could create a lot of noise".

Players typically are concerned about rest going into the final major of the year because the British Open was only about two weeks ago and the FedEx Cup playoffs on the PGA Tour are just around the corner.

Ryan Fox has made the most of his length off the tee to post an opening-round 68 at the US PGA Championship.

"As long as I can compete and have some fun", he said, "and not get in the way".

Tiger Woods, who led last month's British Open with eight holes to play, hasn't won a major in more than 10 years.

"I might put a few noses out of joint by saying, but in my opinion, (he's) the best player that's ever played the game", said Bjørn. I started this year at 11th, I'm back up to fifth. My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that.

Pogba leaves Mourinho raving after 'monster' performance
De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison, denying the young player in the box with this save. Mourinho said that he had no choice but to hand a start to Pogba after Ander Herrera's injury. "A good match.

But after a series of back surgeries, he is back swinging fully and even finished sixth at the Open at Carnoustie last month.

Justin Thomas won at the PGA to go to four wins and ultimately won the FedExCup after a five-win season making him the easy choice.

"It's definitely something that's a big accomplishment and something that I'm very proud of", Johnson said of the No. 1 ranking. Fleetwood tied the U.S. Open record this year with a 63 in the final round, but that wasn't enough to undo the damage of a 78 on Saturday.

Widely regarded as the best player yet to bag a major, Fowler has come close, posting top-five results in all four majors, including second at the Masters in April.

Majors are always compelling, but with the sport so deep with talent right now, there's just something a little extra special knowing that any number of about 30 guys could easily win.

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more. It is their major championship".

Thomas weighed less past year, about 145 pounds at the start of it.
