Tiger Woods begins first PGA round since 2015

Davis Love III responds to a question during a news conference for the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club, Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, in St. Louis.

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more". It was a good PGA Championship for a player that had come to expect greatness or at least have greatness expected of him.

Citing an old back injury, Thomas Bjorn, a 47-year-old who was born in Denmark and living in Sweden, has been forced to withdraw from his 17th PGA Championship.

The electric yellow and orange outfits have been largely replaced but the objective remains unchanged with this PGA Championship representing Fowler's last shot at claiming a major before entering his 30s in December. It's also the first Championship for Tiger Woods since 2015.

Coming off a lackluster performance in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Woods arrived in St. Louis on Sunday night, then had caddie Joe LaCava do a scouting mission at Bellerive while Woods sought to rest and rehab with the help of ice baths.

"The record of mine I don't even have a top-10, I think 12 is the best I've ever finished, which is frustrating because I feel like where I am and where I should be is not results that I have had". "I don't want to talk", the PGA's chief championship officer said from a podium. I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted. "I was fresh, in form, going to a place where if I worked up the leaderboard I could create a lot of noise".

The reigning PGA Championship victor averages 313.8 yards off the tee, putting him ninth on the PGA Tour in driving distance and within spitting distance of big hitters such as Dustin Johnson.

"It's really fun", Spieth said, "when you get a chance to play in front of family".

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

That's because the tournament at Bellerive is the last points-paying event for the USA team for the Ryder Cup, and a crucial opportunity for European players to impress captain Thomas Bjorn. It is why he was asked repeatedly about inflammation Tuesday at Bellerive Country Club. Justin Thomas is back to defend his title, Jordan Spieth is trying to complete his career Grand Slam, and fan favorites such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy should provide plenty of roars around the course.
