Furyk closer to captain's choices for Ryder Cup, Tiger still an option

Furyk closer to captain's choices for Ryder Cup, Tiger still an option

Dating to previous year at the PGA, Thomas has won five times.

LAVISH praise from Tiger Woods isn't enough to make Jason Day satisfied with his lone major championship victory.

Among those in the top 50, Furyk also played once with Patrick Cantlay, Andrew Landry, Charles Howell III, Brandt Snedeker and James Hahn.

A rotating event, the PGA Championship returns to Bellerive Golf Course in Town and Country, Missouri, where it was last played in 1992.

On Tuesday morning, as players were out on the range or playing a practice round on the course, two hijacked airplanes slammed into the World Trade Center in New York City. Suddenly a golf tournament no longer seemed important. "So whether it will be winning the PGA or winning a regular Tour event, it would be sort of the next step".

Woods, set to be an assistant captain alongside Love in September's showdown with Europe at France's Le Golf National, must win the Wanamaker trophy for a record-tying fifth time to earn a berth on the U.S. squad on points. Coming to this course, however, makes him reflect on that fateful day back in 2001.

'I think you've got a battle of two giants, ' Furyk said in his pre-tournament press conference at Bellerive. "I had done an American Express clinic there, here in town".

"Today we only got in five holes and didn't get a chance to see a whole lot, so I'll have to do some more homework tomorrow and get a good feel for what's going on for the rest of the week. I'm excited to be in another one". He is playing the PGA Championship for the first time since 2015. Also in the mix for consideration are England's Ian Poulter, who has been a Ryder Cup force, Henrik Stenson, Thorbjorn Olesen, who's been hot, and Rafael Cabrera-Bello, who was a bright spot in defeat in Minneapolis two years ago. Woods, mentioned as a possible team member, is 20th in the standings.

According to Hadashot news, Azbar was tasked with improving the range and accuracy of the Syrian regime's Scud missiles. His center was the target of Israeli air attacks last month and in September, the Observatory added.

"But since I've been playing well I have a sense of confidence and belief that I totally can get over the line and win one".

"I'm taking advantage of this time to study the secrets of the greens and all the pitfalls that it can cause", he said. "I think the big thing is how the ball's going to react on the greens, because there's not a lot of, like, base underneath the grass and there's not a lot of root system", McIlroy added. It was a very surreal time for myself on that drive.

Woods, meanwhile, is a four-time US PGA victor in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007. He missed the last event held here, the BMW Championship in 2008, because of a leg injury. While on the long drive home he realized he could better help young people through his Tiger Woods Foundation, and assess the direction the foundation was heading. The Masters is synonymous with Augusta National, the US Open its difficulty and The Open the challenge of links golf. I've done a lot of good things.

"It will be fascinating to duel with Woods", Thomas said.

Woods talked with his father, Earl, about the best way to change the foundation for the better.

"There's really not a number, [but] has it narrowed down some, I think it has", Furyk said about the his field of potential picks. He said, well what do you have in mind. "As I said last week, I'm trending". "It was family, then academics and then golf".

The blip at Carnoustie has certainly not derailed the American, who responded by winning the Canadian Open and finishing tied-third at Firestone, and he leads the PGA Tour in strokes gained: total and is first in eagles, birdies and scoring average (68.68).

Grace‚ who was PGA Championship runner-up in 2016‚ has also struggled in the second half of the season after three top 10s on the PGA Tour earlier in the year.
