Woods already 3 over at PGA Championship

  • Tiger Woods lines up a putt on the sixth green during the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational – Final Round

Woods, a 14-time major champion, tries to end a 10-year major victory drought in his comeback from spinal fusion surgery while three-time major victor Jordan Spieth tries to complete a Career Grand Slam with a victory.

Playing partner Justin Thomas opened with a birdie.

Defending champion Justin Thomas forms one part of an all-star grouping also containing Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who tee off at 2.23pm BST.

Tiger Woods has survived his first PGA Championship test: making it to the tee.

"You have to make the most of everything, you have to see the positives and just move on and forget about it and that's what I've tried to do this year".

She may also accept anything valued at less than $194.20 (or £150), books on noncontroversial subjects and charitable donations made in her name.

The former world number one would have been the youngest player to achieve the feat if he had won the title previous year, but could only finish 28th at Quail Hollow as his close friend Justin Thomas lifted the Wanamaker Trophy.

"I'd love to be playing late Sunday", said Furyk, who is also in the PGA field, "but if not, I know I'll be glued to the TV and trying to figure out points and what could happen to our top eight".

But they aren't the reason Day is desperate to hoist the trophy at Missouri's Bellerive Country Club this week.

It's been three years since the Australian star broke through at the 2015 US PGA Championship, but Day admits he demands more from his rare talent.

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. "He motivated me to get this far", he said.

Twitter is not banning Alex Jones; Jack Dorsey explains why
In an apparent reference to other tech companies, he added that Twitter would not "succumb and simply react to outside pressure". He also added that Twitter is not a "service that's constructed by our personal views that can swing in any direction".

The most recent was at the British Open, when he had the lead in the final round for two holes in the final round until fading to a tie for sixth. "I had won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship was at St. Andrews a month later, so I wasn't really asked a lot, other than, 'What would it be like to complete the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews?"'

"I've done well, I'm slowly getting back up the world rankings". He lost in a playoff to Sergio Garcia at the Masters a year ago, and twice he's been top 5 at the PGA.

But 51st-ranked Woods hasn't seen Bellerive in 17 years so nine holes of practice each day will be critical in his search for an 80th career victory and first in any event in five years.

"I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted".

"I spent a bit of time on the range yesterday". "A good year becomes a phenomenal year with a major championship".
