At the 100th PGA Championship, Love becomes only the 14th player to reach 100 major appearances, the 54-year-old American having won his only major title at the 1997 PGA Championship.

Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker and Justin Thomas have all won the year’s final major since 2011.

European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn said Tuesday he would like to see 14-time major victor Tiger Woods make the United States lineup for next month’s team golf showdown in France.

As it stands now, the top eight are: Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan SpiethRickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

But for a major champion who has played eight Ryder Cupsthe key now is to show a degree of form rather than qualify outright.

According to the officials, at least 26 security personnel are among those wounded during the clashes. Taliban leaders have ignored an offer by the government of direct peace negotiations.

Bjorn’s current lineup has four Cup rookies in Noren, Hatton, Fleetwood and Rahm with experienced veterans such as Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson available for four captain’s picks he will announce September 10. He knew then, I think, that he was on the mend.

Who will feature in Europe’s Ryder Cup side?

“It’s stressful, ” Furyk said.

Furyk called the competition “a battle of two giants, ” citing the world rankings littered with Americans and Europeans. With missed cuts in three of his last five starts, worldwide, Kuchar does bring more question marks than usual.

“They’re going to have a really strong team, possibly the strongest team Europe has ever fielded”.

“I like my chances in match play, ” Woods said of the format used for the Ryder Cup. Shauffele, 24, who tied for sixth at the U.S. Open and second at the Open Championship, ranks 11th in the U.S. points table, and has an interesting opportunity on Thursday-Friday: He and Tony Finau (13th in points) will play alongside their potential captain.

“I’ve been (though) that – I think I came to the PGA in the seventh or eighth spot a couple times”. He and Furyk share the same management company, which has provided Furyk a window into an intelligent young player who turns 25 next month.

“I did not ask for that pairing, ” Furyk said. “You’ve got two very, very solid teams and we have our hands full”.

“I sit in a good place”, Bjorn said this week at Bellerive. “As I said last week, I’m trending”. Woods has a mediocre 13-17-3 record in seven Ryder Cups, though his singles record is an excellent 4-1-2.

“He’s added so much value off the golf course for us the last two (Ryder Cups, as an assistant), if we could have him for both this time, it would be great”, said Love, a winning USA captain from 2016 who will assist Furyk in France. He already is a vice captain and has talked to Furyk since January about the possibility of a dual role if he also played.
