Tiger's PGA run likely punched his ticket to Ryder Cup

PGA Championship 2018 Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods shot his lowest final round ever in a major on Sunday at the PGA Championship, posting eight birdies en route to a six-under 64 that electrified the crowds at Bellerive and golf fans everywhere.

PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka was an automatic qualifier for the United States' Ryder Cup squad on Monday, while Tiger Woods waits for an at-large bid.

He sure didn't damage his chances.

CBS reports that their final round PGA Championship coverage was 69 percent higher than in 2017, going from a 3.6/8 to a 6.1/14 in market rating and share, peaking with an 8.3/17 in the 7:00-7:15 timeslot.

"He was just shaking his head", Finau said after finishing the rain-delayed round this morning with a 4-under 66, a round that featured just four pars. "So the good news is 10 birdies in a major is pretty good". "You're going to have to make some birdies".

However, too many bogeys along with a couple of double bogeys and a triple bogey earlier in the week left Finau well back of the victor, 13 strokes to be exact.

Koepka had started the final round two shots ahead of Scott, who was playing with a heavy heart after fellow Australian pro Jarrod Lyle died of cancer earlier this week.

McIlroy bogeyed the opening hole after flying his approach over the green and although he responded immediately with a birdie on the next, further dropped shots on the fourth and seventh saw him tumble down the leaderboard. He pulled within one again on the 15th, finished with a birdie on the 18th and four in all on the back nine but it wasn't enough. That's the mark of good players. "He couldn't even get in and out of the golf cart at the Ryder Cup when he was a vice-captain". Finau is No. 13 in the standings and this is the last week to earn one of the eight automatic spots.

At the moment, Furyk only has tabbed three assistants-Woods, two-time Ryder Cup captain Davie Love III and Steve Stricker (last year's Presidents Cup captain, and a favorite to be the head man at his home state of Wisconsin at the 2020 Ryder Cup at Hazletine)-meaning he could be searching for three assistants along with the four player selections on the slate. "When you get to showcase who we are at this event, more will follow", said Governor Mike Parson. "He showed a lot of poise".

Adam Scott hung around by making big putts, just like he hoped, and was tied for the lead until Koepka's birdies.

"Brooks had chances on those couple of holes and missed, and I had chances and made them and got myself right in there".

Even his first par was an adventure - Finau had to make a 12-footer.

"There are more people here this week than I think I've ever seen at a major championship", said Koepka, the victor of the 100th PGA Championship. "I'm looking at pairings". "I had the most easy, basic, inside right putt that you could possibly have and I made it".

The Golf Channel's Justin Ray highlights how long it has been since Scott has been in contention in a major.

Koepka never imagined a year like this.

Kisner, who contended for much of the PGA, is the kind of fearless bulldog Furyk should want on his team.
