The PGA Championship 2018 is the 100th running and it's shaping up to be a star-studded showdown. This will be his 19th appearance in the tournament he has won four times. "I just need to be able to do that", Woods said.

"Now, I've had a bum knee most of those years, but I could wheel it around that".

If there was any question about whether the golf world still revolves around the 42-year-old surgically repaired American without a major title in a decade, one only needed to peak into the Bellerive Country Club media room as major winners, a Ryder Cup captain and Woods himself were paraded through for a friendly cross-examination to find the answer.

"He's got all the components of the game", Rory McIlroy said.

He was asked if he would take a year that included a major championship and a dozen missed cuts or the kind of consistency he has shown this year. Before you make any 2018 PGA Championship picks or enter a daily fantasy golf tournament on sites like FanDuel or DraftKings, you'll want to see what the team at SportsLine has to say.

McIlroy won at Bay Hill in March but shared fifth at the Masters and second last month at the British Open, his eighth top-10 effort without a win in his past 14 major starts. That also was the last of his four majors.

Combined with forecasted humidity of at least 60 per cent throughout the week, four-time victor Woods expects Bellerive to be a bomber's paradise.

UK's Boris Johnson under fire for denouncing burqas as 'ridiculous'
Labour's Naz Shah , shadow equalities minister, called for an independent inquiry into Islamophobia into the Tory party. The former foreign secretary used his column to comment on Denmark's introduction of a burka ban.

One thing there's no doubting and that is Woods determination.

The next step is winning on the PGA Tour.

"So today we only got in five holes and didn't really get a chance to see a whole lot".

In singles, however, where he can be the lone wolf, Woods is 4-1-2, hardly a co-incidence one would think.

The 100th PGA Championship begins this week in St. Louis.

Wayne Gretzky only played part of one season for the Blues, late in his Hall of Fame career, but it was enough to earn "The Great One" a legion of followers. He finished sixth at the Open and has game and form to feature this weekend.

His beloved grandfather, Bob Julius, and most of his mother's side of the family was raised in the St. Louis area.

Jordan Spieth will take a more relaxed approach to his second attempt to complete the career grand slam by winning the US PGA Championship. For Spieth, a place among the most elite group in golf. "I mean, you look at the World Rankings right now, you look at the top 20 players, they're dominated by Europeans and Americans". But beyond that, courses such as Shoal Creek in Alabama and layouts in Texas, Florida and California that were written off because of oppressive summer heat could be in the mix. But with some help from online coverage, streaming at PGA.com and the PGA Championship Live app - plus, of course, your coverage from your pals right here at Yahoo Sports - we'll muddle on through.

The former world number one would have been the youngest player to achieve the feat if he had won the title a year ago, but could only finish 28th at Quail Hollow as his close friend Justin Thomas lifted the Wanamaker Trophy. But with a big point total at stake this week, spots on captain Jim Furyk's team are still in play.

England's world number three and Olympic champion Justin Rose and Italy's British Open victor Francesco Molinari are other contenders.

Now, those who tried to get on the course at Bellerive are simply soaked.

He was well-placed at the WGC-Bridgestone last week before falling out of contention during the final round.

Rain pounded Bellerive Country Club, twice suspending practice rounds Tuesday.
