Tiger Woods climbs to No 26 in world golf rankings

Tiger Woods PGA Championship arrival had the golf world shook

"I don't know, it would be great, but, yeah, I mean he's, if he's on the team, great, I really look forward to it", Thomas said. If he was home watching on TV he'd be rooting for them if he wasn't playing. We did not know he'd be rocking a pair of shades and and a backward hat along with it, however. "It was pretty evident what Tiger was doing".

Koepka knew exactly what to do.

Not even boyhood heroes Tiger Woods or Adam Scott could intimidate the Floridian, Elliott said.

"I'm going to shoot low today and you watch, everyone will want to talk to me."

"For Koepka to not play the Masters because of injury, to be unsure of his near future in golf, then to come back and win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship - to return and win two of the three majors left in the year - you have to believe it's one of the best years any golfer has ever had!"

The supposed strength of this United States of America side was emphasised by Koepka, who has won three major championships in 14 months.

Yet there he was on Sunday of a major championship, right in the hunt - with Woods, no less.

Woods was appointed a vice captain in late February, and he has said he would like to serve two roles.

Gary Player hopes Tiger Woods wins another major for the good of the sport. He's Tiger Woods, and that carries a lot of weight. He finished at 266, beating by three shots his best 72-hole score in a major. When they made runs, it got loud.

"I'm not sure the numbers are always that important when I look down the list".

US Open: Brooks Koepka wins for 2nd straight year
He was lights out on the greens, burying tough putts from 5-10 feet when his playing partner couldn't buy a birdie putt. The best they could hope for was to hack the ball out and let it roll into the bunker on the other side of the green.

White man charged with fatally shooting Black man in Florida
He does not have a criminal history, but back in 2012, he was accused of pulling out a handgun during a road-rage incident. Seeing the confrontation, McGlockton came out of the store and pushed Drejka to the ground.

Iran's Khamenei rejects Trump offer of talks, chides govet over economy
He says Iran must change the way it operates, including its activities in Syria and Yemen. They also ban purchases of U.S. dollars by Iran and sanction its automotive sector.

Koepka was responsible for that.

The 28-year-old American joined one of golf's most select fraternities with his second straight US Open triumph at Shinnecock Hills in June, becoming just the seventh player to win back-to-back US Opens and the first since Curtis Strange in 1988-89.

The man who finished second to Simpson at TPC Sawgrass - as well as T-2 at the British Open last month - is Xander Schauffele. He also got robbed on No. 11 after leaving a birdie putt hanging on the edge of the cup.

After his round, Thomas said he'll just take frustration away, despite a final-round 68 and overall finish of 270, which tied him with four others, winning just over $425,000. On the way to Woods tying for second place, NBC saw a record 5.11 overnight rating on Sunday, the best rating for a non-major PGA Tour event since 2013.

While the polar opposite of the Masters champion, Koepka has certainly been the focus of some dislike from both golfing fans and media, much like Patrick Reed. "There's something inside his brain that makes him believe that that's what he's destined to do".

Tiger Woods celebrates after making a birdie putt on the 18th green on Sunday.

Thomas Bjorn might have seen it coming. "He recognized who that guy was that day", Bjorn said.

His charge to the top of the leaderboard Sunday began with back-to-back birdies on the front nine and another at the brutally tough par-4 10th.

That was as good as it got. However, the most important figure may well be Woods. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker. Eastern, which is right around the time that Woods and Koepka were wrapping up their rounds.

"It's tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle", Woods said.

Koepka never imagined a year like this. He sat in 20th place at the start of the week.
