Furyk wary of Europe's 'strongest ever' Ryder Cup team

Justin Thomas Thomas carded a one-under-par 69 in the final round at Firestone to finish four shots clear

Speaking of stress, Furyk has been paired for the first two rounds with Xander Schauffele and Tony Finau, two players who are just on the outside of the top eight on the Ryder Cup points list (No. 11 and 13, respectively) and in position with strong showings at the PGA to move into the top eight. And the US has not won in Europe since 1993 - when the then 29-year-old Love secured the winning point with a 1-up victory over Italy's Costantino Rocca. "I don't want to talk", the PGA's chief championship officer said from a podium.

"I've kind of felt that way a lot this year, I don't mind it".

"I had a lot of stretching". Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas have both won in the past two weeks.

And the European number one can take heart from Francesco Molinari's win in the Open at Carnoustie, as well as learning from playing alongside eventual victor Justin Thomas in the first two rounds 12 months ago.

If you were betting your house on a victor of this week's 100th PGA Championship at the storied Bellerive Country Club in Missouri‚ you wouldn't put it on one of the six South Africans in the field. "I've been part of Ryder Cups since 1997 and I've not gone into a Ryder Cup where the United States don't have a great team".

Rose, whose history of back issues includes a three-month layoff in 2016, said his withdrawal last week was less of an injury and more of a precaution knowing the year's last major event was a week away.

The scoreboards for the PGA Championship aren't the only ones worth watching this week.

The forecast is reasonable for the rest of the week, at least until Saturday, leaving players just one more day to study Bellerive, with its tree-lined fairways and large green complexes.

Weekend: Slight chances of storms with temps remaining in the upper 80s. Very much like McIlroy, Day falls into the "due a big win" category and recent fine form suggests it could come at Bellerive. He has flashed unbelievable form in recent weeks and his off-the-tee approach sets him up well for success at PGA Championship events.

Final Smashes now have a meter that can be filled to perform a slightly weaker version of the attack than the Smash Ball allows. Ultimate , meaning each fighter will have set of stages and fighters that they must take on consecutively.

Fresh off the sumptuous buffet that is British Open TV coverage, where every minute of the long, long days across the pond reaches your TV, the PGA Championship seems positively spartan.

Beau HosslerHossler plays out of Trinity Forest in Dallas, Texas which lays out very similar to what Bellerive offers. He's a combined 46-under-par at the PGA since 2013 and has recorded four top-10s in his last five appearances.

"He finished like three groups ago and went to sign everybody's, he stayed there and asked if I was ok", recalled Gibbs.

Keegan BradleyA former victor at the PGA Championship, Keegan has been sneaky good in 2018. And there are likely to be more struggles than success. If he can putt at even a marginally average level, he should perform well here.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods admits he will have plenty of homework to do as he looks to claim a 15th Major.

"But, where my game is, I feel like I've done as well as I could with what I have". It's nearly criminal that Johnson only has one major to his name.

The Ryder Cup, scheduled to begin on September 28, was also postponed until the next year.

That's because Woods thinks he can still make the top eight and earn an automatic spot. I love Joaquin Niemman just as much as the next guy, but I truly do not understand how he is priced better than an experienced veteran like Johnson. He's a low-risk option this week.

Marc LeishmanThis course sets up well for the bombers who double as elite ball-strikers.
