Nick Faldo: Tiger said he was done with golf in 2017

Woods, who hasn't won a major title since the 2008 US Open and hasn't won any title in five years, proved he is a legitimate major title contender once again at age 42 with an epic 64 which he concluded with a 20-foot birdie putt at 18, the crowd roaring as he walked off.

The automatic eight who will compete September 28-30 in France include Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

Asked whether Woods, who is a vice captain, could help the USA team as a player in Europe next month, Furyk replied: "That's a good question".

ST LOUIS, MO - AUGUST 12: Brooks Koepka of the United States plays his shot from the 17th tee during the final round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on August 12, 2018 in St Louis, Missouri.

Fowler and Players Championship victor Webb Simpson were among the leaders as they fought to maintain positions on the Ryder Cup team on the final day of qualifying for eight berths on points.

"I do want to be on the team as a player", Woods said at the PGA Championship. "I'd like to play really well the next few weeks in the Playoffs and try and make a run all the way through and then take some satisfaction out of this year".

A federal law passed in 1988 - crafted with NRA support - bars the manufacture, sale or possession of an undetectable firearm. Before the ruling, President Trump sent a tweet saying , "I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public".

Woods, who started the tournament of the season with a bogey and double bogey, showed his fighting qualities throughout, carding his best final round in a major despite finding no fairways on the front nine.

Poulter said: "I need to play well next in New Jersey".

With roars for Woods unheard anywhere this side of Augusta National, Koepka kept his cool and ran off two birdies on the back nine at Bellerive with Adam Scott tied for the lead and Woods one shot behind. Woods served as a vice captain during that triumph. There are probably lot of folks out there who think he can help us.

Woods, who also challenged strongly in the British Open in July, is likely to be rewarded with a place in the US Ryder Cup team when captain Jim Furyk names his wildcards for the match against Europe in France next month, Koepka heading the eight who have already gained automatic spots after the PGA Championship. For me the numbers are nice, good to look at, but not always the most important.

"Sixth place at the Open championship, second place at the PGA".

Sadly he just couldn't make the clutch putts when they mattered down the stretch despite having a really good week on the greens (19th Strokes Gained: Putting). And there are no bigger moments in golf than the Ryder Cup. "His game. I think the word he used was 'trending.' It's great to see him playing well". At The Open at Carnoustie, he held the lead as he made the turn, but a 2-over 37 on the back saw him fade back to T6 as playing partner Francesco Molinari went on to win.
