On the brink: Woods electrifies in 2nd-place finish at PGA

Posted August 17, 2018

He joined Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only players to win the two USA majors that rotate to different courses in the same year.

Furyk confirmed spots next month in France for Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler from United States qualifying settled after Sunday's PGA Championship final round.

Other contending major winners include 2009 British Open winner Stewart Cink, 2015 PGA Championship winner Jason Day of Australia, second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas and 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel of South Africa.

Woods moved to 11th in the standings, and made a solid case for Jim Furyk to use a captain's pick on him. With Davis Love serving as a captain twice and [Steve] Stricker being our Presidents Cup captain past year, they intimately know these players and know them very well.

Tiger Woods plays a shot on the ninth hole during the final round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on Sunday in St Louis, Missouri.

Plenty went missing; we saw none of Tony Finau's insane no-par roller coaster front nine (7 birdies, a triple, and a bogey). The two Utah club professionals in the field each ended up at 5 over par, missing the cut.

"There are more people here this week than I think I've ever seen at a major championship", said Koepka, the victor of the 100th PGA Championship.

"It really hurt that I missed that, just not to make it interesting up the last", Scott said.

Woods was the Tiger of old, despite hitting only five fairways, making key iron shots and nailing birdie putts to incite the huge crowd roaring his name.

"I realise he is playing very well and I am excited to see that". Woods served as a vice captain during that triumph.

Shortly after 5 p.m., he had a 20-foot putt on the 16th green that would've tied him with Koepka, who was two holes behind but may as well have been playing on another course compared to the frenzy in front of him. "I didn't know when I was going to start this year and how many tournaments I was going to play, how well I was going to play".

"It's a lot harder than people think".

Woods finished second in the final major of the year, two strokes behind Brooks Koepka.

"I'm not sure the numbers are always that important when I look down the list", Furyk said.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, needing only the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam, opened birdie-birdie but took a double bogey at the par-3 sixth then followed that with three consecutive birdies. "The only negative is I feel like I had a great chance to win this tournament on the beginning of that back nine and then I didn't even have a chance the last couple holes, which hurts pretty bad", Thomas said.

Though he closes 2018 still without a major title since the 2008 U.S. Open, it's hard, after a performance like this, to think the drought can last forever. "Even though he doesn't jump up and down and grab headlines, there isn't a going to be a guy out there (from) the FedEx Cup Playoffs through the Ryder Cup that's not going to understand that he is, right now, the man".
