Tiger Woods delighted to contend again after second place at US PGA

Poulter is playing his fifth straight week

They're easy, the jokes about how much he squats or lifts or presses-how many pounds, how many kilograms, how many Wanamaker trophies.

"I just wish I could have got myself a couple more shots closer to the lead but there aren't a lot of guys up there in front of me". "Then I thought I had a shot and didn't quite pull it off".

Those errors brought Woods back into contention.

The victor of 14 majors and 79 PGA TOUR events executed a series of deft par saves; made an improbable birdie after taking a drop from the cart path at the par-4 ninth hole; and kept within a shot or two of the lead on the back nine before signing for a final-round 64 to finish two behind victor Brooks Koepka at the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive.

"If I can get out of my own way and just play, don't think about anything else", Day told AAP when asked what needs to change. But he said he hadn't felt this good at a tournament he didn't win in a long time. "I can't even believe it".

He put a attractive swing on it, ending with a pose that would make a ideal photo in a book on golf fundamentals on the page showing what a finish is supposed to look like.

Of the 11 players within four shots of the lead at Bellerive, the spotlight shines brightest on Tiger Woods.

Even with two bogeys, Woods shot 64 for his lowest final round in a major.

Woodland put it behind him and made birdie putts of 13 and 6 feet on 12 and 14, and missed birdie putts of 10 feet and 9 feet on 11 and 13.

Moderate exercise has positive effect on mental health, study says
For people who had previously been diagnosed with depression, exercise was associated with 3.75 fewer days of poor mental health. The greatest mental health benefits were associated with 45 minutes of exercise between three and five times per week.

The string continued Sunday when he had a birdie putt on No. 1 lip out.

Facing the most important drive of the day on the par-5 17th, Woods sent it sailing to the right and it embedded in a hazard along the banks of a creek. His ball ended up in a gnarly tuft of rough and he was unable to advance the ball to the green and save par.

His caddie, Joe LaCava, noticed the emotion, the fire. "It's better for you than sitting in bed, sitting on the couch", he said. "So I think the list has been narrowed, but it's still open".

"I feel like I'm extremely confident".

"I missed putts on 14 and 15 and Brooks didn't and my momentum was gone", Scott said. He made nothing but pars over the last 10 holes. "Any birdie he made everyone went nuts". Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66). When he began the season at Torrey Pines in January, he was ranked 656th in the world. He is also 20th in FedEx Cup points, meaning he is a lock for the first three FedEx Cup playoff events and in good position to make the Tour Championship for the top 30. When he was an assistant captain for Steve Stricker at the Presidents Cup, he noted that he was hitting only chip shots and said, "I don't know what my future holds".

He has quietly built an astonishingly consistent record in the big events that bespeaks what a complete and versatile player he is: In 12 of his past 13 majors he has finished 21st or better, and in fully seven of those he has been in the top 10.

"This has been a process on building, " he said.

"I played hard", Woods said. I didn't have a golf swing. "It's obviously, for me, being in enemy territory down here in Missouri country". He dropped one and then promptly hit another in the water.

"When I look at what I've done in the past two months, it's incredible", said Koepka, whose 16-under-par total of 264 set a new tournament record, beating the 265 set by David Toms in 2001.
