People are preparing for the 100th PGA which starts Thursday

After his success at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the reigning PGA Championship victor, U.S. golfer Justin Thomas, is the favorite.

By Thomas's telling, it's the kind of course he could play well, should play well: one that will reward long, accurate drives and solid putting. The 1992 PGA Championship at Bellerive was the organization's first sellout in its history. The question is whether he will go in the capacity of Vice-Captain-Furyk already designated him and Steve Stricker as such-or a player.

"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. That being said, he pulled out of the Bridgestone Invitational with back spasms, and that fact is enough to make him unplayable in some formats. "I'm getting more confident in my chances of winning and understanding I don't need my best stuff to win".

Woods is paired with Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas for the opening rounds.

"I can't really talk about my Friday nights, but I can talk about Saturdays", Fleetwood joked. Not even he knows. It's what I build my year around. He bulked up because he wanted to get stronger in the legs and core, which could help him ward off injuries. This year we are looking at a par 70, 7329 yard course. It will always be circled to complete the career Grand Slam, which will ultimately achieve a lifelong goal for me.

Since returning to full-time competition earlier this year at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, Woods has gone from No. 666th in the world to No. 51. This tournament often favours the bigger drivers and few are better equipped in that department than the 29-year-old Northern Irishman.

"Maybe I'll get to see the nightlife", he said.

Davis Love III joins an elite club this week at the PGA Championship, as he makes his 100th major appearance.

"I don't like to be up here". "And we've just been camped out there".

United States captain Jim Furyk admits his side has a battle on their hands to retain the Ryder Cup, whether Tiger Woods is a vice-captain or a player in Paris.

This weekend at Bellerive is the last chance to earn points and automatically make the team.

Its response was to reframe the entire scandal as an easily surmountable obstacle in the path of a nice romantic relationship. Early in the season, it was revealed that Garrett had "liked" some questionable memes on Instagram .

As it stands now, the top eight are: Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson. "When I go to a professional tennis tournament, a lot of times I hang out at the practice court, just watching the tennis players hit, to see how they go about preparing".

Tiger Woods at times looks similar to the guy who won the PGA Championship four times among his 14 major titles, except for the results.

Fifth-ranked McIlroy has five top-10 showings in the past nine majors, sharing second at last month's British Open and fifth at the Masters.

Bjorn probably isn't going far. We want it to enhance the viewer experience and complement our knowledgeable talent.

Last week at Firestone was the latest example of Fleetwood digging a hole in the third round. The 12th and final spot will be finalized after the following week's BMW Championship. But it has come after really hot Fridays.

The Englishman says it's nothing he worries about, but he has taken notice. It's nothing that we're massively anxious about and hopefully it doesn't last for too long.

The 100th PGA Championship begins this week in St. Louis. Plans changed on Wednesday because of the rain.

Skinny: He could have made this a lot easier on himself had he closed out a pair of major opportunities, both a year ago at the PGA and again last month at Carnoustie, where he shared the 54-hole lead.

"Every time I've asked a few veterans that I know how special that would be, or how special it was, they speak volumes about it", Shauffele said.

He can lose the No. 1 ranking to Thomas if Thomas wins and Johnson finishes any worse than a three-way tie for second.
