"Lack of preparation, I nearly see it as a positive", Rose said Wednesday.

Woods would end up winning the tournament five of the next six years.

Woods favored driver off the tee and will probably hit around 8-10 of them per round this week, a high number relative to the rest of this comeback.

Why he'll win: The PGA Championship often produces a victor that is not necessarily on everyone's radar.

"He's added so much value off the golf course for us the last two (Ryder Cups, as an assistant), if we could have him for both this time, it would be great", said Love, a winning USA captain from 2016 who will assist Furyk in France.

But he is clearly being considered for one of the four at-large picks - many believing it is a foregone conclusion.

"It's stressful", he said.

"Yep, it's going to be a long week; you'll have to pace yourself with long rounds Thursday and Friday, but we've done it before, so I'm hopefully fit enough to get around", Scott said. As we break each play down, I will be sure to specify which type of contests I am targeting that player in.

Fleetwood is among the favorites to win the PGA Championship this week, a reflection of the way he has performed since missing the cut at The Players Championship.

Grace‚ who was PGA Championship runner-up in 2016‚ has also struggled in the second half of the season after three top 10s on the PGA Tour earlier in the year. With points counting double and a big purse, the victor is virtually assured a spot on the team.

If not, the 25-year-old from San Diego might see this as an audition.

"So that's something that I'm just trying to go through and try to figure out what I need to do to make that little step from contending and getting into final groups to lifting trophies". I feel like the tougher challenges, tougher courses have suited me this year whilst I've been on my game and I've been playing well. Justin Thomas, coming off his rousing victory at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, and Masters champion Patrick Reed round out the top four, who have clinched their spots on the team.

The shakiest positions are those of Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson, now in 7th and 8th, respectively, who will have to keep watch for Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau behind them.

"It's wonderful to be in that group, to make it that far", said Love, whose first major was the 1986 PGA. He made a decision to not to.

"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".

Stewart Cink was the only player with whom Furyk played twice in the opening rounds.

Tommy Fleetwood has been playing so well lately that he navigated Club de Golf Chapultepec just outside of Mexico City with a mere 12 clubs, two fewer than players are allowed in the bag. Nonetheless, as auditions go, this will be a big one for two players hoping to compete in their first Ryder Cup.

Winner's share: TBA ($1.89 million in 2017). 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 may just be "glad" he is back on the fairways, but the big beast only has one thing on his mind this week: A 15th Major title at the US PGA Championship. "As a player he plays both roles as well".

Woods, as a vice captain, would recuse himself from any discussions about his viability as a player, Furyk said.

"He should be very proud that he was able to win a major after having a family".

Finau, at No. 13 in the standings, did not appear the least bit stressed when he finished his final practice round Wednesday at Bellerive. I usually make five teams on Fanduel, and JT will likely be on all five. "There's a lot going on, a tournament within a tournament".
