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

Crowds line up for shuttles at the Fenton shuttle lot

Other contenders further down the odds to win the PGA Championship include Rickie Fowler (+2200), Justin Rose (+2200), Jon Rahm (+2500), Tiger Woods (+2800), Tommy Fleetwood (+2800), Francesco Molinari (+3300) and Patrick Reed (+3500).

I look forward to another fun tournament on Majors Challenge. I haven't closed out those tournaments as I would have liked, but at least I'm putting myself in position, and that's all I can do.

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough".

Out of the remaining players, I expect PGA Tour rookie Joaquin Niemann to be in a ton of lineups, including my own. "When you think about it, if you played all four of them for 25 years, that's pretty incredible, and I spread it out over a little bit longer than that".

Doubters say Woods gets exhausted late in his rounds and point to scoring averages a full stroke higher on his back nines than his starting sides. "So, yeah, I mean I can probably relate a little bit".

"But it's a process. I've gotten into a couple of bad habits, as you said, and that just makes it a little tougher for me to be consistent with a shorter club in my hand".

One of the things Woods is trying to accomplish this week, aside from winning for the first time since 2013 and winning his first major since 2008, is assure himself of a spot on the Ryder Cup team.

McIlroy ended an 18-month drought when he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, and he would have expected more at this point. "He was in bed".

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


"Blessed. Very blessed. As I was saying earlier, I didn't really know if I was going to be here or not at this level and very blessed to be here".

The PGA Championship begins Thursday, and the last major of the offers another opportunity to try MajorsChallenge.com for free.

Bellerive Country Club, a 7,317-yard par-70 course, is hosting its third major and second PGA Championship. "For guys from my generation that would have grown up with Tiger in his prime, how many people get the chance to be in contention or play against Tiger Woods on a final day of a major when he was the guy you watched". McIlroy is the best driver of the golf ball in the world, and if the course plays soft due to the rain then he could run away with major No. 5. If he can get the driver straightened out, it could be a good week for Day.

"I only had to think about it for about a month", Woods said of the career Slam.

"I needed Monday off so I spent a few times in the ice bath just trying to get some inflammation down and just trying to get ready for the rest of the week", he said.

Asked if he was "guarding" against re-injuring himself by doing too much, Woods said, "It's just there's going to be certain days that I'm just not going to have the speed and the flexibility and the movement that I once did". I like Thomas Pieters, Brandt Snedeker, Keegan Bradley, Byeong-Hun An, Adam Scott, Thorbjorn Olesen and Ryan Moore, but narrowing it down to four starters and an alternate is tough. "So things are going to be different from day-to-day, and it's just about managing it".

Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery in April past year and admits he feels "blessed" simply to be able to compete again, but has already failed to convert several chances to claim his first victory since 2013. And while Gramps has been there for many of his career-defining moments, there are many distant relatives that will get to see him compete for the first time this week.

The injury speculation on Twitter was rampant, but Woods confirmed on Saturday that he felt "fine", and chalked up his performance to playing "like crap".
