Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

Darrell Kestner Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

The championship favourite is Dustin Johnson, while the three previous major winners this year will all play together.

Woods only concern now, and like that of all teeing-up this week in St. Louis, is the weather.

He's yet to win since Royal Birkdale, the missed cuts becoming too frequent for comfort.

18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus holds the record of most major appearances with 164 starts between 1957 and 2005, ahead of Gary Player (150) and Tom Watson (145).

"I'm a little under the radar this year, and I don't mind it", Spieth acknowledged, "but at the same time, this tournament will always be circled until hopefully I win it one day". "I'm glad that this generation of players gets to experience Tiger Woods, because that's what they need".

As was expected, Tiger Woods was the centre of attention during media day at the PGA Championship. He's not a insane popular pick among the analysts, but he's proven at the U.S. Open to not be discounted.

The flamboyant American burst on to the golf scene as a 20-year-old, instantly identifiable by his fluorescent kit and becoming the darling of the young fan demographic the golf industry coveted.

Or the questions that have started to follow Rory McIlroy, who needs to win the Masters, and Phil Mickelson, who has played the U.S. Open five times without capturing the only major he's missing.

Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move
Boateng attracted the attention of several clubs this season, including Juventus and United's bitter rivals Manchester City . But according to the Guardian , Boateng wants to win the Champions League again and doesn't think United are capable.

"I'm trying to work a few kinks out of my swing".

But he is yet to win a major - or a tournament in the United States.

Tiger Woods has won 14 majors during his legendary career.

I know how to play the game of golf.

It would be even more fun to make history in front of them.

"This week would mean a great deal, especially I've had a really good year so far, I think it would make it into a great year". I haven't closed out those tournaments as I would have liked, but at least I'm putting myself in position, and that's all I can do.

"Today we only got in five holes and didn't really get a chance to see a whole lot, so I'll have to do some more homework tomorrow and get a good feel for what's going on for the rest of the week".
