Tiger Woods still excites rivals as 100th PGA showdown looms

Ryan Vermeer at the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail

He didn't wilt. Didn't even wither.

Spieth just didn't win, putting together four consistent-if-unspectacular rounds that left him tied for 28th, well behind good buddy Justin Thomas.

Previous 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.

But it also meant an entire year waiting for another shot at the Slam.

"I think I was probably a little more anxious past year, just because there was a big focus right after winning the Open Championship", Spieth said Tuesday as thunder boomed and rain pelted Bellerive Country Club, washing out many practice rounds. So I know what they're going through. Paulina's mother, Janet, was born in the St. Louis suburb of Bridgeton.

Most significantly, Woods also led the Open at Carnoustie with eight holes to play, only to double bogey the 11th and drop another shot on the next as playing partner Francesco Molinari went on to lift the Claret Jug.

"So there's going to be quite a few guys trying to get out there to play, and I'm going to be one of them". After pulling away from McIlroy on Sunday at the Bridgestone, Thomas will look to become the third player to win the PGA the week after winning the Bridgestone, joining Woods and McIlroy who he also will be playing with for the first two rounds.

Henrik Stenson just barely missed the cut for Group A, and he stands out well above the rest of Group B. He has made nine consecutive cuts with four top-10s in that span, including the Masters and U.S. Open.

Love's streak began with the 1986 PGA Championship at Inverness, and the 100th will come at this year's PGA at Bellerive.

Don't miss the Perseid meteor shower this weekend
It is unclear what the weather will be like during this night, but if the skies are clear stargazers will be in for a treat. NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told Space.com that this year's shower should feature 60 to 70 meteors per hour at its peak.

"I only had to think about it for about a month", Woods said of the career Slam. Before, I didn't really have any of those issues early in my career because I didn't have a fixed point in my back.

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. "Trying to take pressure off yourself, trying to treat it like any normal week, just trying to win the golf tournament that week, sort of put it out of your head that what winning this golf tournament would mean in terms of your legacy and your place in the game". I think that all the guys are trying to get in as much practice they possibly can because [Tuesday] was negated a little bit and most of the guys who played last week took [Monday] off.

If nothing else, Johnson pointed out Tuesday that he'll have plenty of extended family in the crowd.

"We need to get there prepared and ready to go", he said, "and make life hard on them".

"Another reminder that you're getting older and you played for a long, long time".

"I've never even attended a major championship, let alone play", Hocknull said.

The most popular player in the game completed an incredible recovery from back fusion surgery and has played a busy 2018 schedule, but there's seemingly a collective concern on golf Twitter that Woods could tweak a muscle with any given swing.

"I feel like I'm just showing up to catch Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, I wouldn't do that".
