Tiger Woods to play in his first PGA Championship in 3 years

Tiger Woods to play in his first PGA Championship in 3 years

The Kiwi golfer still remains in the top-10 mid-way through the opening day of the PGA Championship after carding a two-under 68 in the first round at Bellerive Country Club in St Louis, Missouri.

Spieth just didn't win, putting together four consistent-if-unspectacular rounds that left him tied for 28th, well behind good buddy Justin Thomas.

The PGA Championship's slogan used to read: "Glory's Last Shot".

That noise? It's softened considerably during the a year ago, and the spotlight that accompanied him to Quail Hallow shines a little less brightly on Spieth in St. Louis.

Rickie Fowler began his bid for an elusive first major with a brilliant five-under-par 65 to grab the early clubhouse lead at the 100th PGA Championship on Thursday as Tiger Woods fought back from a bumbling start.

The 25-year-old Spieth has only taken that one crack at joining Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tiger Woods in completing the modern Grand Slam.

"This is the 14th time he's played this year in this comeback season and he's performed well", Nantz said.

"It's definitely something that's a big accomplishment and something that I'm very proud of", Johnson said of the No. 1 ranking.

"Hopefully, I'll have a couple of majors by the end of my career when I'm done".

Francesco Molinari was given the courtesy of a few questions about the impact of his historic British Open win at Carnoustie last month - the first major triumph by an Italian - but the media did not want to know how it felt to hoist the Claret Jug so much as what it was like playing the final round with Woods.

Or the questions that have started to follow Rory McIlroy, who needs to win the Masters, and Phil Mickelson, who has played the U.S. Open five times without capturing the only major he's missing.

This week is Woods' 19th appearance in the event since making his debut in 1997. "So, yeah, I mean I can probably relate a little bit".

Wednesday, and the final day of practice for the final Major of the year, promises more thunderstorms.

It would be even more fun to make history in front of them. "I've kept giving myself chances this year". I feel like I'm close and closing in. "I'm glad that this generation of players gets to experience Tiger Woods, because that's what they need".
