In fact, Koepka has said for a while that getting over that line in majors is easier than winning regular PGA Tour events, of which he has only two. As such, he's afforded the opportunity to play those two tournaments every year.

Three-times major victor Padraig Harrington, meanwhile, was impressed with the way Woods played within himself and closed out his one-shot Masters win in clinical fashion. But I think sometimes in those circumstances, you ask a lot to your body, and then at some point you're going to pay a price for it.

"It's hard to win majors", Johnson said.

"Hopefully I can be there many more times and get a bit of luck at the right time".

There are 155 opponents who would see themselves as obstacles, but Koepka knocks down those odds.

"You figure about half of them won't play well from there, so you're down to about maybe 35".

"And then from 35. There's new players coming through all the time and more talent, so even just to maintain your level, you need to keep improving".

"He's (Woods) won 15 of these (majors)".

"This is not only a big golf course, but it's going to be a long week.This could be a hell of a championship". I have to start by thanking the whole Fantasy Alarm team starting with Steve for filling in for me over the last two weeks. I like my chances this week. "If you can't find the fairway here, I don't think you're going to be able to go for the greens".

"Just hang around. If you hang around, good things are going to happen". I like him this week though because he bounces back extremely well after bad finishes to rounds and he has the length and short game to get around this golf course. He was close to breaking his major drought at Augusta National after winning the 2016 U.S. Open, but came up a stroke shy of Tiger Woods.

The 2019 PGA Championship begins on Thursday at The Bethpage Black Course in Farmingdale, New York, with final round play scheduled for Sunday, May 19.

So, the 2008 U.S. Open champion - won with a stress fracture in his leg and a partially torn ACL - couldn't fathom the Americans with Disabilities Act would rule on Daly's behalf. If you like precedents, Woods has been back-to-back at Augusta and Bethpage Black on Long Island once before, albeit 17 years ago when he could touch his toes without bending his knees.

"I played 11 holes today and it's definitely long, but luckily enough this is the longest we'll see it all week". There's something to be said about course familiarity, so Scott having the right combination of form and experience makes him someone to monitor. I've been in contention numerous times to have gotten it done.

Woods' win was his first major success in over a decade and moved him within three of Jack Nicklaus' all-time record tally of 18, with victory also taking him one away from Sam Snead's record of 82 PGA Tour victories. "But I think '99 was a big moment to kick-start all that transpired". "So the fact that golf can span almost, what, 60, 70 years and playing careers, that's what makes it so special". I was feeling good in the gym, but I wasn't mentally prepared to log in the hours.

"He seems to be in a great place and I think he feeds off of the support of the crowds and the sponsors and he seems very happy in his life", he added. Woods' talent is clearly still there - he's proved as much - but now it's all about consistency.
