Tiger Woods' eight major near misses since US Open win in 2008

Tiger Woods' eight major near misses since US Open win in 2008

And if US captain Jim Furyk needs any more good news, it's this: His 12-man team is only two-thirds complete.

The charge by Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship and the two-shot victory by Brooks Koepka drew the highest final-round coverage for the major in nine years.

"Tiger's been a vice-captain in the team room as a player", Furyk said. "We talked a lot about the type of player we're looking for on this team and the atmosphere we're going into in Europe, the boisterous crowd; they have a great crowd. It's my job, I think, to round this team out the best possible way".

Justin Thomas and Justin Rose slipped a place each to third and fourth respectively. For the second consecutive major, significant points were up for grabs, but no player from outside the top 8 moved in.

The U.S. team won the most recent Ryder Cup series 17-11 in 2016 at Hazeltine in Chaska, Minn. "I've been waiting 18 months to get a touch, to get a feel, for who our eight qualifiers would be, who the eight players would be".

Woods huffed and puffed with everything he could muster but in the end could not quite take Brooks Koepka down at Bellerive Country Cub, coming up two shots short.

"I heard all the roars when Tiger made his run", Koepka said.

Tiger Woods finished second at the PGA Championship. "I realize Tiger is a story, I realize that he's playing very well and I'm excited to see that". His game is trending. "So it's great to see him playing well".

Furyk already has some natural pairings built into his team.

Why Willian can’t stay at Chelsea under Conte
Had things played out differently this summer, there's a good chance this would've been the other way round. But obviously a few things we didn't do, so I think it will help us improve.

As it stands, Italy's Francesco Molinari, victor of The Open, now tops the Team Europe Ryder Cup points list, followed by English trio Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton and Tommy Fleetwood.

Sitting on a couch watching the Masters on television with an injured left wrist, Koepka had never dreamed he would win two Majors this year, much less battle his boyhood idols. Watson and Simpson have been partners in both cups. Thomas, the only Ryder Cup rookie among the top eight, and Fowler played alongside one another at the 2017 Presidents Cup, going 2-0-1. He will announce the first three on September 3 after the Dell Technologies Championship, and will fill the last spot on the team on September 9 following the BMW Championship.

His closing six-under-par 64 in St Louis gave him the runner-up spot a month after finishing joint sixth at the Open.

"I'm not sure numbers are all that important". Those who look outside the borders of the United States would know he won a big European tour event in Turkey in 2014 and the last two years he has won the Dunlop Phoenix, an old and significant season-ending tournament in Japan.

Mickelson has played on every U.S. Ryder Cup/Presidents Cup team since he went 3-0 in the 1995 Ryder Cup at Oak Hill in NY. "Just to be part of the conversation for the Ryder Cup is great", Woods said. 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.

Players have the next several weeks to make an impression.

"The door is still open". Bryson DeChambeau finished ninth in the standings, just one place out of automatics when the top eight were confirmed on Sunday night, and it would be harsh if he is overlooked.

He said he could not recall the last time he had felt so good about not winning.
