Cellphone rings during Tiger Woods tee shot on Sunday, upsetting gallery

He joined Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only players to win the two US majors that rotate to different courses in the same year.

The top eight spots in the Ryder Cup standings - which include an automatic berth to the team - are now locked up and belong to Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, and Webb Simpson.

But he was there on Sunday, getting stronger as the day went on, and making it very hard for Jim Furyk not to pick him for the Ryder Cup team in a few weeks.

From grinding out pars and turning terrible tee shots into unlkikely birdies to deadly accuracy with approaches and putts, the 42-year-old star who hasn't won a major since the 2008 US Open turned back the clock.

Brooks Koepka has held off Tiger Woods and Adam Scott to win the US PGA Championship at Missouri's Bellerive Country Club.

"He hits it as far as anybody, and when he needed to come up with shots - when he needed to make putts on the back nine - he did it. Thank God he's going to be playing for the U.S.in the Ryder Cup in September".

"Making that putt at least gave me a chance", Woods said.

Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery in April previous year and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence the following month when he was found asleep at the wheel of his auto.

No talks but no war either says Iran's Khamenei
But though he ruled out talks, Khamenei also ruled out the possibility of war with the United States. Also on Monday, Iran said it launched a production line for a radar-evading, short-range missile.

"It really hurt that I missed that, just not to make it interesting up the last", Scott said.

It was a particularly impressive showing considering that he didn't hit a single fairway on the front nine ... and that he began the season trying to reconstruct his swing in the wake of an April 2017 spinal-fusion procedure-his fourth back surgery in as many years.

"I'm pretty disappointed with myself that I couldn't play the last three holes better than I did", Scott said. "And I'm just very pleased at what I've done so far. going from where I've come from, to now over the previous year, it's been pretty cool".

"It's tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle", Woods said.

Scott jumps 31 places in the world rankings to 45th, while his new position of 70th on the FedEx Cup standings ensures he continues a flawless record of advancing to the US PGA Tour's playoffs since the series was created in 2007. For me the numbers are nice, good to look at, but not always the most important. I think from all the hard work he's put in, he's starting to reward himself, so to speak.

It will be impossible to overlook him now, not with the Wanamaker Trophy to go with his back-to-back U.S. Open titles. "We want the players that are going to help us be successful".

"I'll do some practice this week and see if I feel ready to go there and play five out of six weeks leading up to the Ryder Cup".
