For his part, Woods admits he will have plenty of homework to do as he looks to claim a 15th major title in the US PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods wasn't going to waste his time lobbying US captain Jim Furyk for one of the at-large spots on the Ryder Cup team that will head to France next month.

Tommy Fleetwood says he is confident of "getting over the line" and winning a major title as he prepares for this week's US PGA Championship.

The 2018 PGA Championship begins Thursday at Bellerive Country Club.

From a morning start to an evening finish the thread connecting the day's agenda was a familiar one - Tiger Woods.

Only three players are exempt from that - Patrick Reed, who won the Masters, Brooks Koepka, who won the U.S. Open and Francesco Molinari, who won the British Open last week. He would join Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen in the feat with a victory.

And finally: "What sort of an influence has he (Woods) been on you?"

Guess we'll see starting tomorrow.

The flare-up comes as Egypt is trying to broker a long-term cease-fire between the two sides. Palestinian officials said a truce had been reached with Egyptian mediation.

There are 156 golfers teeing it up at the year's final major and it is likely every one of them has, at one time or another, been asked about Woods' impact on their careers.

But anecdotal evidence would suggest that Woods had a stiff back on Saturday when he shot a 73 at Firestone Country Club, making just one birdie. Many squeezed in a practice round Monday, but almost all hoped to do the bulk of their preparation at relatively unfamiliar Bellerive on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 12-time US PGA Tour victor has only bettered Thursday's driving display once, during the 2006 Barracuda Championship. I've done a lot of good things.

Marc Leishman is next best of the Australians at two under midway through his round, while former world No.1 Adam Scott is a shot back at one under.

USA captain Jim Furyk is sure to be questioned on the subject on Wednesday when he pays a visit to the media centre.

"Unfortunately, I made two mistakes there on 11 and 12 and it cost me a chance to win the championship". "He's shown over the past few years he's mentally very good, so I'm sure he won't have a problem".

"It's going to be hot, it's going to be wet and fortunately, I'm one of the guys who hit the ball high and gets the ball up in the air".

"I was scripted to wear a dark blue shirt, so luckily I had a version of yellowish and I'm happy (I) could support Jarrod", Fowler said.
