Thomas trails Johnson, McIlroy on 2018 PGA Championship odds

ST. LOUIS - Heavy rains and thunderstorms limited Tiger Woods to just five holes of practice on Tuesday at Bellerive Country Club as he prepares for this week's PGA Championship.

"I'm sure Jordan feels a little bit different this week than he does the other three majors, but that's normal", McIlroy said. If he can get the driver straightened out, it could be a good week for Day.

"It's just that there's going to be certain days that I'm just not going to have the speed and flexibility and the movement that I once did, " Woods said.

"It's advantageous for the guys who hit the ball in the air and can carry it a long way. So I know the goal is to resolve that and come to a conclusion as soon as possible, but we're just not there yet, unfortunately, because we would like to have made that decision". This seems like a golf course that is right there in front of you. And while Gramps has been there for many of his career-defining moments, there are many distant relatives that will get to see him compete for the first time this week.

"This is the 14th time he's played this year in this comeback season and he's performed well", Nantz said.

"He had to learn how to move again".

"Geez, I mean, 18 months ago the guy couldn't walk", he said. "To get to this point is a phenomenal achievement already".


"I mean, I've kept giving myself chances this year".

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough". My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that. "I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it has counted".

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth will make his second try at completing a Career Grand Slam after sharing 28th past year at Quail Hollow. He would join Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen in the feat with a victory. Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari won the Masters, US Open and The Open respectively, and they tee off at 7.15pm. "So that's all I'm going to say". "Where your ball lands is where it's going to really stay".

That could reduce some edge for big hitters.

"I'm trying to work a few kinks out of my swing".

When Woods, who's had four back surgeries, was asked how many ice baths he took and where he was experiencing inflammation, he said coyly, "Three".
