Tiger wakes up the echoes with best major final round

Tiger Woods PGA championship

Woods has seven top-12 finishes this year, including two runner-up finishes and a t-6 at the Open Championship.

Now that the drama from the 100th PGA Championship has subsided - the crazed cheers from the galleries, mesmerized by Tiger Woods' Sunday charge and by Brooks Koepka swallowing up Bellerive Country Club as if he was downing a protein shake during a workout, have silenced - the golf world turns its attention to the Ryder Cup.

"It was the most fun I've ever had playing golf", Koepka says of his stint in Europe, which he reckons took him to tournaments in 21 countries before he was done.

When Woods withdrew after the opening round of the Dubai Desert Classic in February 2017, he had fallen all the way to No.674.

He needed a victory to move into the top eight automatic qualifiers for the U.S. Ryder Cup team, but moved to 11th and still is all but certain to get one of captain Jim Furyk's at-large picks.

Embattled Anti-Trump Agent Peter Strzok Fired from Federal Bureau of Investigation
Aitan Goelman, Strzok's attorney, said FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich ordered the agent's termination on Friday. During the 2016, Strzok would regularly text with attorney Lisa Page expressing his distaste for Trump.

"I made a bit of a run, looks like I'm going to come up a couple of shots short", said Woods after coming off the 18th. Look at how well he played in the Presidents Cup, the Ryder Cup. "But shooting 70-65-65-67 is good golf at a major championship".

Woodland, who has made great strides in his smooth, powerful swing working with Butch Harmon, has time to become that hot player. If Koepka and the rest of the players in contention see this image, the intimidation factor alone may do the trick for Woods. Despite hitting only five of 14 fairways all day, Woods managed to make eight birdies to offset a pair of bogeys. "It is something I will discuss with Tiger and the other vice captains, what's best for the team".

Furyk said he would be meeting with his vice captains frequently over the next few weeks, and planned to attend two of the FedEx Cup playoff events for meetings and dinners with players already on the team, who also will have some input. However, to be at Bellerive was to witness a special sporting moment as Woods... "His game ... I think the word he used is 'trending.' His game is trending". "I'm definitely playing better and in the right direction and that's a positive".

Woods led at Carnoustie with eight holes to play last month (he lost his lead by going double-bogey, bogey), and at the PGA, following a horrific start (3-over through two holes), he worked his way high up onto the leaderboard over the weekend and stayed there. His form will surely come under scrutiny before Furyk announces three of his picks on 4 September. He has top-six finishes in three of his past four tournaments, including the British Open, where he briefly held a final-round lead, and he certainly has the ear of Furyk. It is what it is and I suspect we're going to be faced with more decisions as to how and where we get out sports fixes going forward but if it's anything like last week's coverage I don't mind it at all. Three players will be picked following the Dell Technologies Championship, the second FedEx playoff event, on September 4. Furyk said Monday that if Woods is picked, he will add another vice captain, although he expects plenty of input from Woods regardless. He missed the cut in his one appearance in 2014.

The Ryder Cup follows immediately afterwards.
