Tiger Woods reveals how he really feels ahead of the PGA Championship

Thomas dedicates WGC win to Aussie Lyle

Woods trying something new at PGA Championship

This should have the benefit of reducing the likelihood that a PGA Championship will be played in a blast furnace, and might also get rid of the appendix feel that the event has dangling in the dog days of summer the way it does now.

This time next week, we will be in the long, dark offseason between major championships (and next year it will get even longer!). So that's something that I'm just trying to go through and try to figure out what I need to do to make that little step from contending and getting into final groups to lifting trophies. Look for the 17th (creek-guarded par 5) and 18th (tight landing fairway) to play a role in the late stages of the tournament. "But having a fixed point in my spine is very different".

The 100th PGA Championship begins this week in St. Louis.

'I think going in there was a big focus on it, given it was right after winning the Open Championship, so it was fresh, I was in form and going to a place that - if I worked up the leaderboard - it would create a lot of noise.

The new 4-bit (QLC, quad-level cell) SATA SSD drives are "expected to bring a new level of efficiency to consumer SSDs". Samsung plans on introducing 2TB and 4TB capacities in the 2.5-inch form factor later this year as well.

"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", said Woods, following a rain interrupted practice round on Tuesday.

"Blessed. Very blessed. As I was saying earlier, I didn't really know if I was going to be here or not at this level and very blessed to be here". 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. I didn't really have those issues when I was early in my career because I didn't have a fixed point in my back. "It's just what are my limitations going to be", he said.

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.

Tiger Woods, who has played his way from nowhere at the start of the season all the way to 20th in Ryder Cup points, will already be going to France no matter what.

And with a second at the Valspar Championship, a fourth at the Quicken Loans and a gutsy share of sixth at Carnoustie Woods was asked how he felt entering his 14th event of the year.
