According to ESPN's panel, Thomas, McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas all have a shot to win.

The century degree Fahrenheit temperatures on Monday gave way to thunderstorms on Tuesday and severely disrupting practice. "Playing around my spine's a little bit different".

Nicklaus needed just three tries after winning the PGA in '63 to win his first British Open, and Player likewise needed three tries after the '65 U.S. Open to win his first British.

The 54-year-old struggled with injuries in recent years and underwent hip replacement surgery last November, but made his 756th PGA Tour appearance at the Barbasol Championship in July.

It's also the first Championship for Tiger Woods since 2015.

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.

"I'm a little under the radar this year, and I don't mind it", Spieth acknowledged, "but at the same time, this tournament will always be circled until hopefully I win it one day".

"If I don't get injured again, stay healthy and hitting it the way I'm hitting it right now, I would think I could play a few more competitively", Love added.

"Some of my driving let me down badly on Sunday", he said. He's not a insane popular pick among the analysts, but he's proven at the U.S. Open to not be discounted.

But on Tuesday it was Thomas Bjørn, with four captain's picks for his European squad to take on the United States in Paris next month, who was quizzed about Woods.

If nothing else, Spieth should have plenty of support this week.

When Woods was told of Bjorn's comments and asked if he believes that, he said with a smile, "I like my chances in match play".

It would be even more fun to make history in front of them. 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.
