Tiger's PGA run likely punched his ticket to Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods PGA championship Is major no. 15 in the cards? We’ll find out Sunday

After the PGA Championship ended on Sunday, August 12, victor Brooks Koepka was met by the runner-up Tiger Woods to exchange a couple of pleasantries. He only started playing golf because he was in a vehicle crash and hurt his face - I think he fractured his sinus - he got his face banged-up in a auto crash and was told "You can't play contact sports for a while" so he just took up golf. What is important is how well Tiger has played.

After later competing in the 2013 Scottish Open, Koepka competed in the PGA Tour and the U.S. Open in 2014 and the Open Championship in 2015, rising quickly in the global golf rankings. "His game ... I think the word he used is 'trending.' His game is trending".

"I always feel like I'm overlooked", he said.

"We are looking at how our next four fit in with our eight qualifiers and how that team meshes and gels". The average American cares about Tiger Woods.

Furyk was not willing to say what appears certain for everyone else: Woods will be in France for the September 28-30 matches with golf clubs. I realize Tiger is a story.

"I'm excited. I know these eight players are excited as well", Furyk told reporters.

All this despite an injury that kept him out of action for nearly the first four months of the year, and a single regulation PGA Tour win (2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open).

It would be the second time he plays the Ryder Cup as a captain's pick. Spots 12 through 18: Xander Schauffele, Matt Kuchar, Kevin Kisner, Tony Finau, Kyle Stanley, Brian Harman and Kevin Na. When they made runs, it got loud.

Players have the next several weeks to make an impression. His form will surely come under scrutiny before Furyk announces three of his picks on 4 September. And needed a grand total of 10 putts over nine holes to make the turn at 3-under 32.

Koreas agree to hold summit in Pyongyang in September
Moon was part of the South Korean delegation which travelled to Pyongyang for the second inter-Korean summit held in October 2007. He also said that the two Koreas have become intimate "friends" with complete understanding of each other.

"We have some big tournaments coming home", Furyk said.

Scott, who'd only had one top-10 finish in the past 14 months, had mixed emotions after his best showing of the year.

Ultimately, the team will consist of 12 players. Spieth and Reed have been dynamic in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.

In winning three of the last seven majors, Koepka becomes the fifth American player aged 28 or younger to claim three major titles since World War II. Watson and Simpson have been partners in both cups.

The 14-time major champion hasn't had time to earn one of the eight automatic qualification places that were confirmed on Monday and is hoping to be of Furyk's four captain's picks to take on Europe in Paris.

It was Woods at his most wild and wonderful.

"We want the players who are going to help us be successful". "Tiger's been a vice-captain in the team room as a player - he serves that role in either direction", Furyk said.

"He seems to rise to the occasion", said Furyk.

"I was trying to pick out courses on our Tour that are similar to Le Golf National", the captain said. "Every leaderboard change no matter what hole you were on, you knew what Tiger did". I think it's been a big boost having the best player maybe to ever live following your group and being there for support.
