Brooks Koepka Gets Props from Trump, 'Job Well Done!'

Brooks Koepka Gets Props from Trump, 'Job Well Done!'

Nelson had the fewest victories of those with at least three majors (since World War II) until Koepka. While we may not have had the Irish victor we wanted, Ireland does play a major park in Koepka's remarkable story.

It wasn't just the majors. The PGA Championship had one of the best fields ever. But it was one shot from looking very different.

Bryson DeChambeau was at No. 9 and missed the cut.

But Furyk, the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, remained coy about whether he would choose Woods with one of his four at-large picks, saying Monday morning during a news conference to discuss the eight automatic qualifiers that he wanted to let the process play out until his first three picks are announced September 4.

And to think Garcia began the season with a victory in the Singapore Open. He is too far behind on the European Tour points list, which is based on money.

Woods has already been selected as non-playing vice captain of the Ryder Cup team.

Tiger Woods is now in the midst of a strong run of form.

For a second straight major Sunday, there was a potential distraction during a crucial Tiger Woods drive.

Woods has said going back to February, when he was named a vice captain, that he wanted to play on the team as well. "That's what we're allowed, and I see a lot of value in having all five there".

Could Woods also help the USA team in its bid to retain the Ryder Cup for the first time since 1993? "He serves that role in either direction", Furyk said.

"He priceless, to be honest with you", Furyk said. Brooks had several opportunities to give [the] PGA Championship away and he was not even close.

What was your opinion on how the PGA Championship ended? In the past, the other PGA players would start to crumble. Justin Thomas had a 63 at Erin Hills a year ago, which played as a par 72.

The final-round overnight ratings were the best since 2000 when Woods completed his career grand slam.

He was playing alongside Woods in the final round at Carnoustie when Woods took the lead for two holes, only to fall back with a double bogey on the 11th hole.

"He had an opening round of 69 this week and nobody wanted to interview him".

"Minus a couple of tee shots, I had a chance to win this thing with what felt like not my A-game", Spieth said. And the rest of the game is moving in the right direction. Spieth and Reed have been dynamic in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. He still has work to do to earn a spot in the Tour Championship. I respect him for being arguably the best golfer of all time, certainly of my generation. The two did play a round of golf together in 2017, so it's possible.

The PGA Championship was another example that while Woods remains larger than life to the fans, it isn't enough to shake the players he is trying to beat.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy finished the week on -2 in a tie for 50th place. "The four-iron never left the stick".

"Even at Shinnecock in June at the US Open, he was obviously defending champion and he was a bit miffed that he was watching the Golf Channel first round and he wasn't even up, he didn't have a great first round, but wasn't even up at the bottom as "notable others" - he wasn't even there and he's defending champion".
