Fleetwood ready to write about major success

Justin Thomas dedicated his win to former PGA Tour player Jarrod Lyle who is battling cancer for the third time

Northern Ireland's McIlroy has not won a major since the 2014 US PGA Championships title, which marked his second win in the event following a 2012 success.

Past year as the last major: Starting in 2019, the PGA Championship will move to May, part of an overall schedule overhaul that will give the major season more continuity ... but it'll also mean a long wait from the British Open in July to the Masters in April.

ST. LOUIS - Jim Furyk can defer a decision on Tiger Woods and the Ryder Cup for a few more weeks, but the USA captain admitted Wednesday he was surprised the 14-time champion discussed being part of the team as a player back in January. During the next decade, he dominated golf as perhaps no athlete has ruled any other sport, accruing eight of his 14 major titles before Mickelson won the 2004 Masters for the first of his five major victories.

The last repeat PGA Championship victor was Woods in 2007, and Tiger is +2800 on the golf odds this week.

Ryder Cup jockeying: This is the last opportunity for American players to play their way into a guaranteed pick for the Ryder Cup team by finishing among the top 8 in points.

Scott Barrett's late try sealed the Lions fate and underlined just how hard it is nowadays for sides to win in New Zealand. Tamanivalu says the team environment and "brotherhood" made him feel at home with the Crusaders .


Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, past major winners trying to rise once more from contenders to champions, tee off side-by-side when the 100th PGA Championship starts Thursday. "I'm getting more confident in my chances of winning and understanding I don't need my best stuff to win".

"So he's shown over the past few years he's mentally very good, so I'm sure he won't have a problem".

"They told me they wanted to watch someone putt", Woodland said. I have a chance to do something special this week - try to win a major, just like 155 other guys. I did a lot of clinics around the country and tried to raise money for the local areas and try to bring awareness... "He hadn't played in so long", Furyk said. You're like, "This person's going to think I'm so stupid for this".

While that tournament was a huge breakthrough in Thomas' career, he talked on Wednesday about how Woods' 2000 win at Valhalla - in Thomas' hometown of Louisville - caught his imagination. You still have to determine how much risk you are willing to stomach, but if you're going to play Rose this week, Majors Challenge is the place to do it. Thomas could overtake him if he finishes second and Johnson is 19th or worse.

"It was very honest", Johnson said of Tuesday's team meeting. "It's just I haven't won as much as I would have liked, but there's still plenty of time to change that".

He predicted that the USA market will "go up dramatically" after the "horrible Trade Deals" are successfully renegotiated. China continues to move forward while for U.S. farmers, the trade war has represented a major step backwards.


"The big thing about this course, from when I played media day, is it's just a driving golf course, it seems like", Thomas said.

Pete Bevacqua, PGA of America's CEO, who will become president of NBC Sports Group after this PGA Championship, said Wednesday, "We're about as close to 100 percent confident in that decision as possible".

"Sometimes golf is just like that and it's just a case of keep doing what you're doing and eventually it will happen".

Francesco Molinari, whose British Open win made him the first Italian golfer to win a major, is hoping for a historic double. I have put myself in contention in the majors.

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.

Disney Streaming Service Won't Include Pre-2019 Star Wars Films
In the final minutes of trading on Tuesday, shares hit $116.56, an increase of nearly 10 percent from a year ago. Disney's movie studio enjoyed blockbuster success with " Avengers: Infinity War" and "The Incredibles 2 ".


"Being the deepest field in golf and a great golf course and a lot of players trying to knock off that major here at the end of the year that haven't gotten one yet this year. any tournament is a tough one to win, but this one especially is", Thomas said.
