Specifically, whom USA captain Jim Furyk will select as his four captain's picks now that the qualified first eight are set as of the conclusion of the PGA.
His most stirring performance in years left Woods second, two shots behind victor Koepka, who shot 66 to finish with a 16-under 264 and claim his third major in the last seven.
That leaves four captain's selections up for grabs, which Furyk will hand out next month.
Captain Jim Furyk will pick four others - three on September 3 and the final choice on September 9.
"I realize Tiger is a story", Furyk said. I feel like I've led a lot of majors with four holes to play and not won them. "I made a good par putt at the sixth, then birdie-birdie, and that really calmed me down a lot".
That represents a rise of 25 places since last week and he has also moved up to No.11 in the US Ryder Cup standings and looks increasingly likely to take his place on the team for the match against Europe next month.
"I didn't know if retirement was the word, but I didn't know if I could play golf with my friends again", Woods said after a fourth back surgery in 2017. Brooks was the 12th victor in-a-row to have finished inside the top-28 at Firestone the week before and he was the 17th victor in 20 years to have already won earlier in the season.

"Other than me, my team, everybody was rooting for Tiger", he said. Really what we wanted to talk about today was the top eight players.
A second-place finish at the Valspar Championship followed by a tied fifth at Bay Hill set tongues wagging, but it was his run at the British Open - when he led with eight holes to play - that suggested he was back as a serious major contender.
The resurgent Woods had the huge St. Louis crowd in raptures Sunday as he chased a first major title since the 2008 US Open - a feat which, given his backstory, would be regarded as one of the great sporting fairytales.

His runner-up finish, behind Brooks Koepka who is now No 2 in the world, was his second top 10 in a major this year and makes him a certainty to be a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup in October. He was not a factor in any of the majors, though he was regarded as a central figure in the team room and helped reshaped the US model for the Ryder Cup. Spieth and Reed have been dynamic in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.
Barring a player getting hot and winning next week's North Trust at Ridgewood and the Dell Technologies outside of Boston, Bryson DeChambeau, who's No. 9 on the points list, and Kevin Kisner, who's 14th, should round out Furyk's four captain's picks. "Tiger's been a vice-captain in the team room as a player - he serves that role in either direction", Furyk said.
And yet it still felt - and certainly sounded - as though he played second billing to Woods.
"We have some big tournaments coming home", Furyk said. "It's a fun atmosphere for us to play in".
Furyk will announce three of his picks on September 4, one day after the Dell Technologies Championship. Furyk said on Monday that should Woods take on a playing capacity, he will select another assistant.
