Johnson 'ready to go' at PGA Championship

  • Justin Thomas with the Wanamaker trophy after winning the 2017 US PGA Championship

McIlroy, who is seeking a hat-trick when it comes to lifting the giant Sam Wanamaker trophy, said: "I've had a pretty good record in May". A nice change if you ask me, and a change that is going to test the players mental and physical capacities.

"(There are) 156 players in the field, so you figure at least 80 of them I'm just going to beat", Koepka added. I have to start by thanking the whole Fantasy Alarm team starting with Steve for filling in for me over the last two weeks. Watching this Bruins-Hurricanes series is making me want to take a slight underdog, but it just won't be the case this week (that goes for the Hurricanes as well).

The venues and course set-ups can be quite similar to regular PGA Tour events, not helped by the feeling that the golf season is winding down in August. "Wedge game is going to be a big factor".

Woods recalled how he hobbled across Torrey Pines in the 2008 US Open for 91 holes to defeat Rocco Mediate and capture his 14th major title - his last until capturing last month's Masters to end an 11-year major win drought. Woods played nine holes Monday, spent Tuesday practicing on the range and chipping area, and planned to play nine holes Wednesday.

"He got his fixed for some reason", Daly said. Probably not. But I feel like I'm swinging really well. A sidenote, Jordan Spieth is also taking his third crack at winning the career grand slam this weekend but most don't believe he's got the game right now to make that a reality. Different tournament, same result?

Woods had to be rescued from the wreckage by his wife and taken to hospital, fuelling U.S. tabloid stories suggesting his private life had become deeply troubled. Despite the disappointment at the Masters, he's had seven (!) top-10 finishes this year including a win at The Players. "I don't see why you can't get to double digits", Koepka said.

"I've enjoyed the courses that we've played in the past". And let's not forget that in 2009, Glover won the U.S. Open ... at Bethpage Black.

The soggy 7,459-yard, par-70 course is long enough at the best of times, and this week it will offer little roll once the ball hits the ground, thereby affording the power players an even bigger edge than usual. "But it's a great test of golf".

Woods and Koepka join fourth-ranked four-time major victor Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and England's second-ranked Justin Rose with a chance to overtake American Dustin Johnson for the world number one ranking this week with a victory. He has a long career ahead of him and is more than capable of capturing more major titles.

Parnevik, who won the PGA Tour five times, issued a scathing rebuke of Woods' behaviour when his infidelities hit the headlines.

"It was about 100 degrees in Bellerive last year when we played this event and this year is obviously a lot colder - we're up north here in NY, and at this time of the year".

"I knew my actions were wrong but I convinced myself that normal rules didn't apply". So the schedule is very much on top of you this year.

"It's always nice to defend, but being in NY, I've got good memories", Koepka said. As a former British Open champion, he also has an exemption for that event until he's 60, though he did not play last year's tournament. "I walked with a broken leg, so".

"It's still not 100 per cent, but it doesn't seem to be interfering too much with my golf". I was a little bit disappointed. He won the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black on Long Island in 2002.

"Yeah, I mean, I've got a number".

"It was just a sore throat and a bug that I got from the kids at the beginning of the week".
