Tiger Woods Score, Highlights And Analysis

Koepka is chasing a third major title

"So I need to try to continue that because this is definitely a good time of year to peak".

Already an assistant Ryder Cup captain, as he was two years ago, Woods claimed shortly after his round Sunday that, this time, he yearns to do more than cheer on his countrymen.

The birdie train got going again on 12 after he stuck an iron to within five feet for his fifth birdie of the day, then he added another at the par-3 13th from 10 feet. Furyk said on Monday that should Woods take on a playing capacity, he will select another assistant. I certainly want to keep improving. 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. "I'm going to be there either way", Woods said. Instead, he missed that, then another short one to drop a stroke on Koepka.

Undeterred, Woods smashed a driver down the center at 18, hit his approach below the pin and holed a 19-footer for his eighth and final birdie of the day. Woods had to get up and down from a bunker to save par.

"It felt like a football atmosphere, in a good way", said Joe LaCava, Woods" caddie.

"He priceless, to be honest with you", Furyk said. "I can't even put it into words".

Tiger with his final putt, and he birdies the1th to move level with Adam Scott.

'I'd followed him around the week before in Memphis and his body language was bad, ' said the straight-talking Yorkshireman. "He couldn't make a bunch of pars and win the golf tournament".

Even after the excruciating miss on No. 11 - one that looked a lot like his teetering, toppling chip on No. 16 at the Masters in 2005, except that one went in - Woods would not quit. After back-to-back birdies by Scott, the two were locked together with five to play and the Aussie was matched for plenty at around the [2.3] mark but Koepka soon reasserted himself at the top with back-to-back birdies of his own at 15 and 16 and the result was never in doubt after that. When he began the season at Torrey Pines in January, he was ranked 656th in the world. He is also 20th in FedEx Cup points, meaning he is a lock for the first three FedEx Cup playoff events and in good position to make the Tour Championship for the top 30.

But the U.S. Ryder Cup captain remained coy on whether he would choose Woods with one of his four at-large picks, saying Monday morning during a news conference to discuss the eight automatic qualifiers that he wanted to let the process play out until his first three picks are announced on September 4.

Sixteen months after a spinal fusion that was successful beyond his wildest dreams, the 42-year-old is back as one of the best players in the world.

Woods and Koepka played nine holes of a practice round Wednesday, and the 14-time major champion knew what he was up against.

Molinari finishes at -10, he won't be winning today.

"This has been a process on building, " he said.

"I don't have answer for it, but I'm glad it happened". "I didn't know what swing I was going to use, either".
