Thomas Bjorn withdraws from PGA Championship with back injury

Fans will show up early to see Tiger Woods, he tees off at 8:23a.m. and playing along with Tiger are Rory Mcilroy and Justin Thomas, they begin on the back 9:00 a.m.

Just the sixth golfer to shoot a 63 at a U.S. Open, Fleetwood finished a stroke behind victor Brooks Koepka earlier this year at Shinnecock Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y. In 2017, he placed fourth at the U.S. Open.

It is the third career major start for Suri, who also played in the 2017 and 2018 Open Championships.

"I needed that day off, " Woods said.

Meanwhile, Fowler is probably the best current golfer who has yet to earn a Major title, and Woods is a four-time victor of the PGA Championship and the last to repeat when he finished first in 2006 and 2007. My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that. "Yesterday I spent a few times in the ice bath just trying to get some inflammation down and just trying to get ready for the rest of the week".

'But obviously getting in the winner's circle when it's been over a year is something that I obviously would like to do.

"I've definitely become a little more rotational in my swing over the past couple of years, and some of that is through bad habit and some of that is through injury", he said, adding that the only major he feels he had a real chance to win since 2014 was The Open at Carnoustie last month.

Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas have already clinched spots, but there are four more automatic spots in play.


Bellerive is busier than usual on the final day of practice for the PGA Championship.

Lousy weather also accompanied the U.S. Senior Open in 2004, turning parking lots into mud puddles and dousing part of the second round.

Widely regarded as the best player yet to bag a major, Fowler has come close, posting top-five results in all four majors, including second at the Masters in April.

"Without a doubt, the next step in my career is to win in America, win a major".

NZ's Ryan Fox was happy with his putting on the opening day of the year's final major at Bellerive.

For most of the day Fowler had ruled the leaderboard after launching his quest for his first major with a 65 but could only watch as Woodland mounted an unexpected charge.

It's important to keep things in perspective and realize that, you know, you could win five times in a year and not win a major, and some people would think, "Well, you haven't won a major" - for some of the elite golfers, anyway.
