Justin Thomas

That's where some degree of normalcy returned.

Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery in April past year and admits he feels "blessed" simply to be able to compete again, but has already failed to convert several chances to claim his first victory since 2013.

Anyone who doesn't believe Mickelson and Woods will be captain's picks should they not vault into the eight automatic qualifier spots by Sunday probably believes John Daly will win another major championship and donate his winnings to Gamblers Anonymous. Woods did it twice.

Now a more mellow 42-year-old, he is viewed nearly as a father-figure by the young generation of Americans such as Jordan Spieth.

Cannon Gibbs was leaning down to get Jordan Spieth's autograph on Monday when a fence broke.

Thomas hasn't heard that in a while. - It's the last day of practice for the PGA championship and players are hustling to get in their rounds After yesterday's rains. That in itself likely wouldn't be enough to get Spieth Player of the Year, but it's out there.

Thomas has come into his own. "When you think about it, if you played all four of them for 25 years, that's pretty incredible, and I spread it out over a little bit longer than that".

This is a deep friendship that transcends any rivalry, and Thomas was never overly bothered by the mention of being Spieth's close friend. "You're already on edge going into a major championship with an opportunity".

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", Woods said.

"If you're able to hit the ball well and put the ball in the right sections, you'll see a bunch of birdies". All that did was ratchet up the hysteria that perhaps another major is in the cards.

"I'm trying to get back to the way I was the last time I won a major in 2014 at Valhalla".

"It'll be pretty insane out there".

"Since I've been playing well, and particularly since I've been playing well in the majors, I tend to look at them more". So yeah, it will be a cool week.

The players with Woods on Wednesday - and for the next two days - were telling.

Since returning to full-time competition earlier this year at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, Woods has gone from No. 666th in the world to No. 51.

The top eight players in the points after the PGA automatically qualify for the team; Woods, who has won the PGA four times, can only earn enough points to qualify with a victory.

"It will always be circled to complete the career Grand Slam, which will ultimately achieve a life-long goal for me, so certainly emphasis in my head on it, but nothing overpowering", Spieth said. "Combined with our Swing Vision technology, it will be a useful visual tool for our viewers, especially on one of the last holes of the tournament". "The viewer is now seeing and understanding data, like shot apex, that they might have not have known about just a few years ago". I feel like the tougher challenges, tougher courses have suited me this year whilst I've been on my game and I've been playing well.

Can you tell how hot it is in the afternoons at Bellerive based on how many drink-related accessories we chose? "If you find yourself in contention down the stretch, you'll be fully aware of what this means".
