Tiger Woods Adds BMW Championship to Playoff Schedule

Tiger Woods Adds BMW Championship to Playoff Schedule

He finished at 266, breaking by three shots his personal best over 72 holes in a major.

Woodland earned $334,712.50 for finishing in a tie with Thomas Pieters, Francisco Molinari and Justin Thomas at the PGA Championship.

When Tiger Woods plays, people watch.

Tiger Woods will take part in the BMW Championship, which is part of the FedEx Cup playoffs, at Aronimink Golf Club.

Woods has said he would like to do both, though Furyk said if Woods is a captain's pick, then he will take another assistant captain.

Remember what happened last month in the British Open?

But Furyk, the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, remained coy about 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 September 4.

Rickie Fowler and Marc Leishman are the only players to have made the cut in all four majors each of the last two seasons. It just seemed that way because he was winning so many of them. "It was pretty evident what Tiger was doing".

Koepka set the PGA Championship record with a four-day score of 16-under 264. After 10 years of borderline obscurity, the sport of golf has its biggest star of all time playing at a high level.

Koepka has a history of feeling undervalued that dates back to being overlooked by his favoured college, Florida, and not being considered for selection on the Walker Cup team after impressing at Florida State.

He has now contended on the back nine on Sunday in consecutive majors - making it clear that Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Spieth and the rest of that generation could very well have to deal with him, and all the baggage that comes with him, in majors in 2019 and beyond. The user uploaded a video that shows Woods having to deal with a cell phone going off just before his swing. The other was Y.E. Yang in the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine, the only times Woods lost a 54-hole lead in a major. Maybe I'm being stubborn, but I just can't allow myself to get over some of my past complaints.

He is good enough to win.

For a second straight major Sunday, there was a potential distraction during a crucial Tiger Woods drive.

As for the Ryder Cup, Furyk ended up with the same eight players who started the week atop the US standings.

Give him the lead, give him the crowd, give him the opportunity, and Woods got it done with a rate never seen in golf.

This year the September 6-9 event is shifting to Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., which is hosting the BMW for the first time.
