Garcia's form a concern ahead of Ryder Cup

Garcia's form a concern ahead of Ryder Cup

And then in Sunday's final round Schwartzel fired a seven-under 63‚ suddenly finding the game that was good enough to win a major seven years ago.

"I like the way the PGA sets it up", Koepka said. "As many of you know, growing grass in St. Louis in August is pretty challenging with bentgrass", he said.

Then he has a poor weekend, in which he couldn't find fairways at Firestone, looked exhausted, seemingly had a stiff lower back and wasted a good opportunity to earn FedEx points, world-ranking points and Ryder Cup points. I'm 42 now and I've had four back surgeries.

"There are some meaty holes out there where you really have to drive the ball well and hit a good long iron into the green", Spieth said. For this week, that means Justin Rose.

Israel begins work on Gaza sea barrier
The border protests continued this weekend with an estimated 8,000 demonstrators hurling rocks at Israeli soldiers and burning tires.

While fans can get pictures and autographs from the players, Volunteers paid $175 to get a lot of extra perks. They were paired in the final round at Carnoustie last month when Molinari capped off a bogey-free weekend with a 69 for a three-shot victory in the British Open, the first major title for an Italian. "From that point on, I have three or four weeks before I have to make those picks", Furyk said. That being said, there is still some risk he withdraws in the middle of the tournament or isn't himself because of the injury. "I think you're already on edge going into a major championship with an opportunity".

"But I feel like I'm close and closing in". The last time any PGA event was played here was back in 2008 when the BMW Championship was held at Bellerive. No one was in any mood to play a golf tournament after everything that had happened to the country.

And while Woods has not spoken in past months of his physical well-being confirmation he underwent ice treatment on his back on Monday has many observers wondering if Woods is covering-up his true fitness.

McIlroy learned last week at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, when he stumbled to a final-round 73 and shared sixth, that part of what makes him a strong driver is hurting his short game. Also in the hunt: majors bridesmaid Matt Kuchar, British Open darling Xander Schauffele, and Masters anklebreaker Tony Finau. He is fifth on the PGA Tour in Par 4 Scoring, second in Strokes Gained: Approach and fourth in Scrambling from the Sand.

Tiger Woods at times looks similar to the guy who won the PGA Championship four times among his 14 major titles, except for the results.

Why he'll win: I'm going outside the box (a little) this time, taking someone who has a lot of game but isn't quite a household name.

"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", Woods said. Everyone down to Chris Stroud at No. 85 in the standings has a mathematical chance by winning - maybe further down if the PGA raises its purse.

I look forward to another fun tournament on Majors Challenge. He has contributed to many publications over the years and co-authored the book Golf's Greatest Eighteen from Random House. That the contest is free and you can win a $250 Amazon gift card for first place and a $100 Amazon gift card for second place is just icing on the cake.
