PGA Championship: Davis Love III to make 100th major appearance

Tiger Woods lines up a putt on the sixth green during the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational – Final Round

"I've given myself a lot of chances".

He's yet to win since Royal Birkdale, the missed cuts becoming too frequent for comfort.

Woods, who will play in his 14th tournament this year after returning from a fourth back surgery, a spinal fusion, over a year ago, did not get specific when asked about the ice baths, saying only it was the third time this year he has done so.

He followed that with three rounds in the 70s at the Bridgestone Invitational last week, leaving him a full 20 shots off the pace - and outside the top 20 for the eighth consecutive event. But history suggests that if he doesn't lift the Wannamaker Trophy soon, Spieth might never accomplish the feat.

The final major of golf's 2018 season is underway.

The latest was a closing 73 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron on Sunday as he chased down victor Justin Thomas, and follows on from the Hollywood-native settling for a tie for second at the Open in Carnosutie after enjoying a late share of the lead.

"I needed that day off, " Woods said. And when Johnson became engaged to Paulina Gretzky, many of those fans became fans of the former U.S. Open champion, too.

But, the golfer who was picked more than any other was 28-year-old Tony Finau.

But on Tuesday it was Thomas Bjørn, with four captain's picks for his European squad to take on the United States in Paris next month, who was quizzed about Woods. "So, yeah, I mean I can probably relate a little bit".

His beloved grandfather, Bob Julius, and most of his mother's side of the family was raised in the St. Louis area.

Eleven Sports have the rights for the event this year, so if you are looking to the BBC, Sky Sports of BT Sport for your golf action then you will not find it.

Day's career-best round for approach play was when he hit all 18 greens during the 2016 Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. I didn't really have those issues when I was early in my career because I didn't have a fixed point in my back. "It's a big deal, but I think, once you get out on the golf course and you start the tournament, all you're thinking about is trying to shoot good scores and hit good golf shots".

His wedge play, especially inside 100 yards, is a glaring weakness in his game and while he's working hard to improve, he feels his swing is close to where it was in 2014 with the proviso that his body is now different.
