Brooks Koepka Gets Props from Trump, 'Job Well Done!'

Brooks Koepka watches his drive on the ninth hole during the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club Saturday Aug. 11 2018 in St. Louis

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

Woods himself referred to his return to the year's first major at the Masters at Augusta as "a miracle".

Professional golf is in a healthy place, with a number of young stars in Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, etc. "I'm not that bad" and he said 'Brooks Keopka is unbelievable.he's going to win on the European Tour next season and then I think he's going to win majors" and you're kind of saying 'Ok, I've heard this before, ' you'll keep an eye out for him.

Did he worry that a day like this might not ever come again? You have to take your hat off and applaud his efforts. So just try to get to the top of the leaderboard and work from there.

While Woods has never been one to celebrate a loss, he couldn't help but feel good about the road he's taken over the past year - one that ended with a tantalizingly close call at Bellerive.

Tiger Woods has climbed to No 26 in the world golf rankings following his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship. His comeback began at the Hero World Challenge on November 30, 2017.

There is no doubt about whether or not Tiger Woods is still a huge golf draw.

While the BBC provided rather imperfect coverage last year for free on terrestrial television, it was broadcast this year by Eleven Sports, established worldwide but now entering the Irish and United Kingdom markets. Now he's up to 26th, his highest position in nearly four years.

Naby Keita starts for Liverpool in Premier League opener vs West Ham
Burnley were held to a goalless draw away against Southampton on Sunday with Joe Hart making several saves in his league debut. Those in charge at West Ham aren't the most silent of club owners. "We're going to try to keep the same level and keep going".

"Sixth at the Open, second at the PGA, his game is trending".

For Woods, it was the lowest score in the final round in a major in his career.

This was the second year in a row that Sky Sports did not show the final major of the year.

When the automatic standings for the United States team ended on Sunday he had risen to 11th, despite giving everyone else a year's head start.

He has now won three majors over the past 14 months - and joins Jordan Spieth, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Woods as the only US players since World War II with three majors before turning 30.

Already an assistant Ryder Cup captain, as he was two years ago, Woods claimed shortly after his round Sunday that, this time, he yearns to do more than cheer on his countrymen. "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. "It is something I will discuss with Tiger and the other vice captains, what's best for the team". If it wasn't already the most eagerly anticipated Ryder Cup of all time, it is now. We want players who can make us successful. I realise he's playing very well and I'm excited to see that.

Justin Thomas also had a chance to join Woods as the only back-to-back PGA champions in stroke play, and he was tied for the lead briefly on the front nine when Koepka missed fairways and made two straight bogeys. Add Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and two more wildcards, and it's undoubtedly a formidable line-up.

The #PGAChampionship writing is on the wall for victor Brooks Koepka. Heavily muscled, he looks like he should be taking on Anthony Joshua rather than Tiger Woods.
