Lowry gains in Fedex Cup race, Woods shoots up rankings

Lowry gains in Fedex Cup race, Woods shoots up rankings

As Tiger Woods prepared to hit his tee shot on the 5th hole on Sunday at the PGA Championship, the crowd hushed as he took a few practice swings.

That could be about to change after Sunday's success.

They join four who previously clinched berths - top-ranked Dustin Johnson, reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed, third-ranked 2017 PGA victor Justin Thomas and second-ranked Brooks Koepka, this year's PGA Championship and US Open victor.

The attention is something he doesn't necessarily crave, and yet sometimes he feels he deserves more. I like to be the person that's not really recognized. Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson were a couple of the great ones who didn't win it when it was the final leg of their personal grand slams.

"This is the greatest comeback in golf".

Koepka said that just as his major victories on vastly different courses showed, he was up for any challenge.

Jim Furyk tried to keep the focus Monday on the eight automatic qualifiers for the United States Ryder Cup team following the PGA Championship, but even the captain acknowledged that Tiger Woods "is a story".

"I'll be looking at guys who have a great body of work this year, who fit in well with these eight players", said Furyk. His game - I think the word he used is 'trending.' His game is trending.

The top viewership market was St. Louis (11.5/24), site of the year's last major.

Mickelson has played on every U.S. Ryder Cup/Presidents Cup team since he went 3-0 in the 1995 Ryder Cup at Oak Hill in NY.

Over the three major tournaments this summer where Woods was in contention, the "Tiger Effect" averaged out to a 40% final round bump. And he joins Spieth and McIlroy as the only multiple major winners in a season for the past decade.

"I can think of plenty of people along the way telling me I'll be nothing, working at McDonald's", Koepka told reporters Tuesday at Bellerive. He shot 64 and if you had dropped anyone else in those positions they would have shot a 74. He is going to be a tough out for people.

While Spieth, Thomas or Rickie Fowler manage to engage with the public, Koepka finds it harder to open up. "I would never have forseen that a year ago", Woods said. I let you fully in.

"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.

Woods playing - and playing well - has been gold for golf's TV ratings.

Former world number one Woods finished 11th in the US standings, not among the eight players who qualified automatically after the PGA Championship. "I'm definitely playing better and in the right direction and that's a positive". "He didn't just have the driving, he had the iron game, he had the putting and made some key up-and-downs". "To do this is truly incredible", Koepka said.

Throughout the week, golfers continuously touted Bellerive as one of the most crowded golf courses they'd played on, with some of the most passionate fans.

"It's just because I'm so focused". "I enjoyed it way more than I probably do now playing on the tour". I mean, he becomes a contender.

The young Koepka took up golf after a vehicle accident ended his dreams of making it in baseball, basketball and other more athletic sports. He won the U.S. Open in 2017 and 2018.

He traveled widely, from Kenya to Kazakhstan, learning his trade, gaining life experiences and growing up. Also won his third major in six starts with a thrilling victory over Tiger Woods in the US PGA.

Now, his achievements will likely secure him a spot in golf's Hall of Fame when he turns 50, but the quiet Koepka doesn't do it to be famous.

"I use it as motivation", added Koepka, who is now ranked second in the world behind Johnson.
