Quick look at the PGA Championship

Woods, the headliner in an all-star group with four-times major victor Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas, got off to a horrific bogey, double-bogey start and spent the rest of his round undoing the damage to salvage a level-par 70.

Tiger Woods, who led last month's British Open with eight holes to play, hasn't won a major in more than 10 years.

Three different golfers - Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari - have claimed the first three majors of the year, so golf's fourth and final major is as wide-open as ever. "But if I feel like I can compete and have some fun and not get in the way, I would love to keep competing and break that record".

It wasn't so much media day at the 100th PGA Championship on Tuesday as it was Tiger Woods Day. I haven't closed out those tournaments as I would have liked, but at least I'm putting myself in position, and that's all I can do.

Woods himself came back to competitive golf at the end of past year with low expectations and a desire simply to play pain-free which he believes he has now achieved. 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". "I just need to be able to do that", Woods said. I spent a few times in the ice bath just trying to get some inflammation down and just trying to get ready for the rest of the week.

Even Woods will have to re-learn have to win Majors and McIlroy is nothing but impressed by the 14-time Major winner's recovery from injury. This seems like a golf course that is right there in front of you.

The 14-time Major victor finished second behind Paul Casey in the Valspar Championship in March and was in contention at Bay Hill the following week before driving out of bounds on the 16th hole of the final round.

Prior to taking on Carnoustie in Scotland, the 42-year-old expressed hopes to add this year's tour on to his other wins.

"He's been a model and an idol for me growing up, and it's nice to see him back playing good golf, and hopefully we'll be paired together late on Sunday again this week". "Trying to take pressure off yourself, trying to treat it like any normal week, just trying to win the golf tournament that week, sort of put it out of your head that what winning this golf tournament would mean in terms of your legacy and your place in the game".
