Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

Bob Boyd

Rickie Fowler began his bid for an elusive first major with a brilliant five-under-par 65 to grab the early clubhouse lead at the 100th PGA Championship on Thursday as Tiger Woods fought back from a bumbling start.

He followed that with three rounds in the 70s at the Bridgestone Invitational last week, leaving him a full 20 shots off the pace - and outside the top 20 for the eighth consecutive event. The only thing I haven't done is win enough.

Of that group, Reed (Masters) and Molinari (British Open) join Koepka as the other winners of this year's Major tournaments.

"I have a sense of confidence and belief that I totally can get over the line and win one". "He's shown over the past few years he's mentally very good, so I'm sure he won't have a problem". He can lose it to Rose if Rose wins and Johnson finishes worse than in a tie for seventh.

That noise? It's softened considerably during the past year, and the spotlight that accompanied him to Quail Hallow shines a little less brightly on Spieth in St. Louis.

Johnson, the current leader in the FedExCup and the world No.1, is looking to turn his good year into a great one over the next six weeks or so.

Thomas talked about getting himself back into contention.

The field, like it is at every major, is loaded with star power. "I had won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship was at St. Andrews a month later, so I wasn't really asked a lot, other than, 'What would it be like to complete the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews?"' I feel like I'm close and closing in.

Even Woods will have to re-learn have to win Majors and McIlroy is nothing but impressed by the 14-time Major winner's recovery from injury.

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", Woods said.

Day's career-best round for approach play was when he hit all 18 greens during the 2016 Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more". It's important to keep things in perspective and realize that, you know, you could win five times in a year and not win a major, and some people would think, "Well, you haven't won a major" - for some of the elite golfers, anyway.

"It's part of the plan, and it's part of my career, hopefully, to have a couple of majors by the end of my career".
