Koepka rises to world No.2, Tiger and Scott soar

ST LOUIS MO- AUGUST 11 Brooks Koepka of the United States plays a shot on the 15th hole during the third round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club

ST LOUIS MO- AUGUST 11 Brooks Koepka of the United States plays a shot on the 15th hole during the third round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club

He was 10th in the standings and missed the cut at a PGA Championship that was ripe for scoring.

While Woods and Scott were mounting charges on the way home, Koepka, who has only one other victory on the PGA Tour at Phoenix in 2015, stalled with five consecutive pars. He only started playing golf because he was in a vehicle crash and hurt his face - I think he fractured his sinus - he got his face banged-up in a auto crash and was told "You can't play contact sports for a while" so he just took up golf.

The ratings were the highest for the PGA Championship's final round since 2009. Woods also finished tied for sixth place at the 2018 British Open.

Woods has already been named as an assistant captain for Le Golf National, but he made no secret of his desire to be in France as a player as well, and it would take a fearless man to leave him on the sidelines. "A bit of a struggle with my game today, but I hung in there". He made a great par save at the par-4 fourth to stay T-2 and within three (eventual victor Brooks Koepka had made an opening birdie in the meantime).

Either way, Tiger made another four birdies on the back nine, finishing up with eight for the day and a 64.

But four years on, he will arrive in France a completely different figure - a formidable presence in a strong American team that will nearly certainly also contain the name of Tiger Woods. "I mean, you have to because you know he's right there if you fall".

"I still think you want to be able to weave the four captain's picks into the framework of the eight that we have, but you could pick two guys who paired very well as captain's picks as well", Furyk said.

"But just for the fact that it was in his sight line when he's looking at the hole, especially right with the way it breaks coming up left to right, I just didn't want him staring at it".

"I played hard", Woods said.

Tiger Woods last won a major golf title in June 2008, when he beat Rocco Mediate in a playoff at Torrey Pines to win the US Open. Brooks had several opportunities to give [the] PGA Championship away and he was not even close.

And at their vanguard is Koepka, who has collected three victories from the last six majors he has played, having missed the 2018 Masters with a wrist injury. "I realize Tiger is a story, I realize that he's playing very well and I'm excited to see that". "It kind of pushes you to step up your game".

"Here's the one thing I do know", he explained. He settled for a 4-under 66 and a two-shot lead over Adam Scott going into the final round of the final major of the year. Any renovation that golf course has undergone in the past two decades has been because of Woods.

"You definitely heard Tiger's roars".

"It's pretty obvious when Tiger makes a birdie".

The lesson is clear: When Woods is absent, the casual fans tune out.

Next up, Woods will play the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

"Try to make the best out of a bad situation and keep rolling", Koepka said. There was no doubt that he was a competitive force again, and no doubt he was one of the best golfers on Tour again.

Furyk, speaking to reporters Monday at Bellerive to introduce his qualified eight players, was hesitant to delve into who his picks might be.

It was not to be, but Scott was happy with his overall display in a performance that hints at a return to the top. I passed a lot of good years there. "It's my job, I think, to round this team out the best possible way". "Any birdie he made everyone went nuts".
