The Greens at Bellerive for the PGA Championship May Be an Issue This Week

"If I don't get injured again, stay healthy and hitting it the way I'm hitting it right now, I would think I could play a few more competitively", Love added.

The 14-time Major victor finished second behind Paul Casey in the Valspar Championship in March and was in contention at Bay Hill the following week before driving out of bounds on the 16th hole of the final round.

"It's advantageous for the guys who hit the ball in the air and can carry it a long way". He had to learn how to swing.

His only other experience at Bellerive came in 2001, when he was preparing for the American Express Championship that was canceled due to the September 11 terrorist attacks. He's 20th on the Ryder Cup points list and needs to get into the top eight to secure a spot without having to be one of the four captain's picks.

Three different golfers - Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari - have claimed the first three majors of the year, so golf's fourth and final major is as wide-open as ever. "So that's all I'm going to say".

That could reduce some edge for big hitters.

"Even though it's going to be softer and wet, it's got the potential for I think anybody to work their way up the board", Spieth said.

Bumpy greens could be a concern, Woods said.

Unfortunately for the tournament's TV ratings, one of them isn't Tiger. "They look slower than they are".
