PGA Championship Performance Solidifies Tiger Woods' Ryder Cup Chances

Tiger Woods at 2018 PGA Championship

With a strong lineup already confirmed, Furyk joked about who the real leader of the team is.

Going into the tournament, Koepka had already claimed a spot on the squad, as had Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed. "He's still got a little bit of work to do to get on the team automatically, but, again, we're definitely looking at him as a pick as well", Woods said on Tuesday. Phil Mickelson, Tony Finau and Matt Kuchar are believed to be the names, for now, most prominent in Furyk's mind. Everyone else, it seems, is occupied by Woods.

Tiger has never played a professional round of golf in St. Louis. I realise Tiger is a story.

"I'm pretty disappointed with myself that I couldn't play the last three holes better."
The book always looked nice and healthy. What is important is how well Tiger has played. The 42-year-old golf legend finished the tournament in second place, shooting 14-under par across all four rounds and two strokes behind Koepka. His game is trending. So it's great to see him playing well.

While the good times have seemingly come back for golf and the networks who broadcast the sport, we got a rather scary preview of what's to come when Tiger one day stops being a factor. "I was hitting it left and right on the driving range, even with my sand wedge, so I knew it was going to be a struggle to piece the round together, but I did". It also determined the eight auto-qualifiers for the 2018 United States Ryder Cup team.

But forgive Woods if his intense fist-pump in celebration at the end of his day was the sort of gesture normally reserved for when you win.

Ultimately, the team will consist of 12 players. "He's priceless, to be honest with you. I don't think it will be rocket science for [me] to figure out what's missing, if anything".

"I like to reach out to the fans and have support". So he's a huge value. "So I will have five". No disrespect to Koepka, though, but we're giving credit to Tiger for the bump in TV ratings. "So as a captain [early in 2018], I'm scratching my head and I'm anxious". How can you not have Brooks Koepka come to Europe with you?

"I'm going to shoot low today and you watch, everyone will want to talk to me."

"I really wanted to see kind of how Tiger was playing, and I only got to see".

I fancied Koepka to get the job done when it was clearly just a three-man race, I'd already layed him at odds-on on Saturday, and with two players challenging him, it would have diluted the winning far too much if I'd have covered them both so I chose to let it ride. The final pick will be made after the BMW Championship on September 10.

Key in Bjorn's thoughts must be Sergio García, routinely a key player but woefully out of sorts and form.

Bryson DeChambeau was at No. 9 and missed the cut. Ian Poulter leapfrogged Paul Casey into eighth at the USPGA but there is only just over a point between them. The same applies to Henrik Stenson.

He finished the tournament at 14-under 267 and was two back of Brooks Koepka's lead when he finished the round.
