The Big Talking Points From The 2018 PGA Championship

On Sunday at the PGA Championship Tiger Woods came

Rounding out the top eight is Webb Simpson, who finished T19 at Bellerive.

"Making that putt at least gave me a chance", Woods said.

Tellingly, Furyk then added: "Even as a player he's been a vice captain, always has been". He's got deft touch and a pure putting stroke, but is more about overpowering golf courses than overthinking them. "I think there's a lot of folks out there who probably think he can help us".

Woods didn't win a major this year, but he finished in the top 10 in both the British Open and the PGA Championship. "But Tiger serves that objective as a vice captain or a player and [we're] looking forward to having his help".

"I'm exhausted. I just need to eat some proper meals tonight and I felt my hydration was good all day, so it just takes a lot out of you", he said. Brooks was the 12th victor in-a-row to have finished inside the top-28 at Firestone the week before and he was the 17th victor in 20 years to have already won earlier in the season. What is important is how well Tiger has played.

If the former Boys and Youths worldwide picked up the traditional caddie's 10pc cut of Koepka's $1.98m US PGA and $2.16m US Open wins, plus a smaller percentages of the American's $6.4m earnings this year, he's already more than $500,000 richer.

"I think the word he used is 'trending.' His game is trending", Furyk said with a smile.

His charge Sunday at Bellerive was reminiscent of his older days.

LeBron James is the unquestioned king of USA sports media. The Ryder Cup will be held September 28-30 near Paris, with the United States defending the crown it won in 2016 at Hazeltine, Minn., but having lost its past five matches in Europe.


The day after Woods finished second to Brooks Koepka, Jim Furyk held a press conference to confirm the eight automatic spots for the United States of America team at next month's Ryder Cup.

You can see a full list of the U.S. Ryder Cup auto-qualifiers below (in bold), plus the players ranked 9-12. "He is an absolute lock for the Ryder Cup - a 100 per cent lock".

It feels like everyone was a golf fan this weekend, as Tiger Woods came - perhaps literally - inches away from his 15th major victory.

The eight who made the team already make natural partnerships. Kisner, too, has formed a successful partnership with Mickelson in team play.

'But Tiger serves that objective as a vice-captain or a player and I'm looking forward to having his help'. Figure on Woods lobbying for DeChambeau and Mickelson doing the same for Kisner.

"We have some big tournaments coming home", Furyk said.

While there was nothing "wrong" with Woods and Sims greeting one another, some social media users made jokes about Woods and Sims going in for a hug after Koepka turned around and went to turn in his scorecard.

Overlooked going into the US Open after missing the Masters with a left wrist injury, Koepka had been all but written off at Shinnecock after flirting with the cut line when he was seven-over par during the second round.
