Tiger Woods has brief practice, recovering physically before PGA Championship

On Thursday, a star-studded feature group including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Thomas will tee off together at the 2018 PGA Championship.

The first two rounds of the PGA Championship will be streamed live and free on the Eleven Sports UK Facebook page so you can see if you like the coverage before signing up.

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. "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". He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 24 of those rounds in the 60s, 30 under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.

Fleetwood was second at the US Open in June, a shot behind Brooks Koepka after a final-day 63 - the joint-lowest round in the tournament's history.

But that's well in the past! It's important to keep things in perspective and realize that, you know, you could win five times in a year and not win a major, and some people would think, "Well, you haven't won a major" - for some of the elite golfers, anyway.

The latest was a closing 73 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron on Sunday as he chased down victor Justin Thomas, and follows on from the Hollywood-native settling for a tie for second at the Open in Carnosutie after enjoying a late share of the lead. 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.

Everton complete deals for Mina and Gomes
Everton had an eventful deadline day, making no fewer than four big-name signings, including Bernard, Gomes, Kurt Zouma and Mina . Fellow Barca bench player Andre Gomes has also made a decision to join the Toffees on a loan deal after consultation with Mina .

One thing there's no doubting and that is Woods determination. "It felt very familiar", Woods added.

"Well, definitely more physical. It's just what are my limitations going to be", he said. "I've given myself a lot of chances".

"Now, I've had a bum knee most of those years, but I could wheel it around that. Playing around my spine's a little bit different".

Bumpy greens could be a concern, Woods said.

The century degree Fahrenheit temperatures on Monday gave way to thunderstorms on Tuesday and severely disrupting practice. At the end of the day, a lot of careers are defined on major championships.
