Brooks Koepka joins golf legends with incredible feat

Brooks Koepka joins golf legends with incredible feat

Woods, beset by injuries but fresh off a tie for sixth at the British Open, finished two shots back after a birdie on 18 - he shot a final-round 64, his best-ever number in a final round of a major. He did just enough to stave Woods off and clinch his second major of the year, finishing at 16-under 264.

He may be thankful to still be playing, but the reality is that this performance hints that Woods is nowhere near finished at the top level, and that all the hard work to get to this point has been worth it. "It was great theater, really".

He's a threat at majors or anywhere else. It's my focus. For some reason the majors get my attention. "We want the players who are going to help us be successful".

Woods has earned five top-10 finishes in the 14 events he's played in 2018.

On the European side, qualifying runs for another three weeks before captain Thomas Bjorn makes his four picks in September. "I think everybody at the golf course cheers for him". There is this, kind of, sense that he feels: "I can't be ignored now.' He doesn't play up to the galleries, he doesn't play up to the media, he's like 'I've won three in six and you just can't ignore me" so I think he could be the late bolter.

"It's a packed leaderboard and there are going to be about 10 of us looking for that round of the year", Scott said. "I've dealt with it for a very long time". I realise he's playing very well and I'm excited to see that. He also straddled the fence when asked whether he will be looking for more veteran presences like Woods, Mickelson and Matt Kuchar, who is now 13th in the standings, or more youth to cultivate with Thomas being the only Ryder Cup rookie now on the squad. "That's exactly what they wanted".

I hesitated posting this, but this is the 5th Tee box on Sunday. "Our captain has some decisions to make. Hopefully, my name will be part of that process". But he did what Tiger Woods does and made it to the turn in three under par.

Omarosa’s White House recordings fuel Trump woes
Giuliani , the former Republican mayor of New York City, said he was pleased to see FBI Agent Peter Strzok fired by Deputy FBI Director David Bowdich.

For the first time since he made his first team in 1995, Mickelson has failed to make the team on points but, along with Woods, is expected to be an at-large selection, meaning there are really only two spots remaining. "Those are the type of players you want in a Ryder Cup". Tiger doesn't just move the needle more than any other golfer, but any other athlete. He outlasted good friend Dustin Johnson at Shinnecock Hills to become the first back-to-back U.S. Open champion in 29 years.

The U.S. team won the most recent Ryder Cup series 17-11 in 2016 at Hazeltine in Chaska, Minn. Xander Schauffele is at No. 12.

That includes Woods, a vice captain and sure-fire pick. "His game. I think the word he used was 'trending.' It's great to see him playing well".

Speaking after his third-round 66, Woods admitted the delay in play over the course of the weekend has taken it's toll on him.

I fancied Koepka to get the job done when it was clearly just a three-man race, I'd already layed him at odds-on on Saturday, and with two players challenging him, it would have diluted the winning far too much if I'd have covered them both so I chose to let it ride.

Koepka displayed his trademark composure under pressure, unwavering and confident in his shotmaking with two birdies in the last four holes to secure the victory. Spieth and Reed have been dynamic in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.

"I'd say the door's open in a lot of respects", Furyk said. Watson and Simpson have been partners in both cups.
