Tiger Woods 'excites' Jim Furyk ahead of Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods PGA championship

Bryson DeChambeau lost out on a chance to move into the top eight when he missed the cut at the PGA Championship.

Jon Rahm, of Spain, was the only one of five players who finished ahead of Woodland who has not won a major, and Peters, of Belgium, was the only one who tied him who is without a major.

But despite the building excitement, Woods fell agonisingly short of what would have been his 15th major title by just two shots.

The supposed strength of this US side was emphasised by Koepka, who has won three major championships in 14 months.

Woods' second place finish at the PGA Championship was his best finish in a major since the 2009 PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods celebrates after making a birdie putt on the 18th green on Sunday. Woods also finished tied for sixth place at the 2018 British Open.

"I knew what I was up against", Koepka said later, "and Scotty played unbelievably well". "Bit of a struggle with my game".

Finishing two shots behind overall victor Brooks Koepka is not the fairy tale that most spectators in St Louis would have hoped for, but it is a huge step in the right direction for the 14-time major victor and former world number one.

Woods himself referred to his return to the year's first major at the Masters at Augusta as "a miracle". But there's no doubt that the sport reaches a different level of popularity when Tiger Woods is playing well.


"I'm just thankful to be here". "But Tiger serves that goal as a vice captain or a player and [we're] looking forward to having his help". His non-faltering on the back nine in comparison to Carnoustie shows that he's now firing both physically and mentally. "I realize he's playing very well, and I'm excited to see that".

While Thomas grew up during the whole Tiger Woods run, he hadn't ever played with the kind of large, roaring galleries that attend Woods in contention on the last day at a major.

Even when hosting a US Open or PGA Championship trophy, Brooks Koepka is careful to keep a chip balanced on his shoulder - even if it's just a small one.

Koepka displayed his trademark composure under pressure, unwavering and confident in his shotmaking with two birdies in the last four holes to secure the victory.

"He seems to rise to the occasion", said Furyk.

Woods, who came close to taking first at Bellerive Country Club with a 64-shot final round, would have locked up his spot had he won on Sunday, but his strong performance makes it likely team captain Jim Furyk will pick him for the squad anyway. "Everybody on the golf course cheers for him".

"These fans were so positive all week", Woods said. Koepka and Johnson have paired together, as have Thomas and Fowler, who could also team with Johnson. Being a part of that as a fan is cool, and even when you're playing, it's still pretty neat. Koepka was one of the eight players to have their places confirmed at the Ryder Cup on Monday.

Now a USA citizen, Elliott admitted he was anxious when Koepka was forced to sit out the first four months of the year with a wrist injury but reckons he's now a strong player because of that. "I don't think it will be rocket science for [me] to figure out what's missing, if anything".

"That was certainly filtering back through the groups", Scott said. "Any birdie he made everyone went nuts".
