Koepka rises to number two, Woods 26th in world rankings

Rickie Fowler Pga championship

"He couldn't make a bunch of pars and win the golf tournament".

The automatic eight who will compete September 28-30 in France include Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

Nervelessly, he then ripped two huge drives down the 17th and 18th holes to effectively ensure his spot in history as just the fifth player to win both the US Open and PGA Championship in the same season, all on the back of a wrist injury a year ago that threatened his career.

Having ended the 2017 season in 656th place in the world golf rankings, amid persistent back woes and off-course issues that had more than a few fans wondering if he'd ever play competitively again, Woods has vaulted up to 26th after Sunday's showing.

"For me, the numbers are nice, good to look at, but not always the most important".

"The energy in the crowd, that was as big a crowd as I've seen and to play in front of, and he just kind of ho-hummed a 64 there".

With Brooks now winning three of the last seven majors, only 12 of the last 15 have gone to a first-timer but that's still a significant figure given the last 28 majors have been won by someone inside the world's top-50. It's great to see him playing well. The uphill effort looked good the whole way before stopping on the edge of the hole, unwilling to fall in despite heartfelt pleas from the player himself and the raucous St. Louis crowds.

Tiger Woods waves to the fans at the 11th hole during the first round of the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club, Aug. 2, 2018, in Akron, Ohio.

They got louder for each birdie by Tiger Woods that moved him closer to the lead Sunday in the PGA Championship, and Koepka could hear a ripple effect of noise. Despite hitting only five of 14 fairways all day, Woods managed to make eight birdies to offset a pair of bogeys.

At this point, if Woods is not on the Ryder Cup team, it would be a bigger surprise than the fact that he's, well, Tiger again.

"I realize Tiger is a story", Furyk said. The word he used is "trending". In 2010, Woods' last time playing Ridgewood Country Club, he shot an opening round 65, his lowest score in 30 previous rounds at THE NORTHERN TRUST. "He's going to be on the team one way or the other, whether he's a vice captain or a player and whichever role he is I'm looking forward to it and I know he is too". But he said he hadn't felt this good at a tournament he didn't win in a long time. His best shot over a final round of 4-under 66 was a lasered 4-iron to the 16th green that landed 6 feet away and set up a birdie.

"If we put McIlroy as the elder statesman of the post-Tiger generation so you have the likes of Spieth, who has three majors as well, think how much we talk about Spieth - he's level with Spieth". Furyk said Monday that if Woods is picked, he will add another vice captain, although he expects plenty of input from Woods regardless. Thomas turned birdie into bogey at the turn with a three-putt from 5 feet, and he missed a short par putt on the 14th to fall back. "Those are the type of players you want in a Ryder Cup". The United States team has won just two of the last eight Ryder Cup matches.
