How to watch the PGA Championship on Eleven Sports

Woods, the headliner in an all-star group with four-times major victor Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas, got off to a horrific bogey, double-bogey start and spent the rest of his round undoing the damage to salvage a level-par 70.

Woods will play today at Bellerive alongside world No 2 and defending champion Justin Thomas and four-time major victor Rory McIlroy.

Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari won the Masters, US Open and The Open respectively, and they tee off at 7.15pm.

"I have put myself in contention in the majors".

Not only is it the 100th PGA Championship - it's also the final major golf event of the year. "I was fresh, in form, going to a place where if I worked up the leaderboard I could create a lot of noise".

"They need to experience what he brings to the game, and they need to experience all that comes with the world of Tiger Woods". I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it's counted.

"I'm sure Jordan feels a little bit different this week than he does the other three majors, but that's normal", McIlroy said.

McIlroy added: "And the feelings that I have now, it's just hard for me to get into those positions, and if I do get into those positions, it will make me a better wedge player".

"I'm trying to work a few kinks out of my swing". I started this year at 11th, I'm back up to fifth.

Meanwhile, European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn has pulled out on the eve of the tournament with a back injury.

"Without a doubt, the next step in my career is to win in America, win a major".

Eleven Sports have the rights for the event this year, so if you are looking to the BBC, Sky Sports of BT Sport for your golf action then you will not find it.

Meanwhile, Fowler is probably the best current golfer who has yet to earn a Major title, and Woods is a four-time victor of the PGA Championship and the last to repeat when he finished first in 2006 and 2007. 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.

"He's been a model and an idol for me growing up, and it's nice to see him back playing good golf, and hopefully we'll be paired together late on Sunday again this week".

But he is yet to win a major - or a tournament in the United States.
