Koepka looking to put a great finish on a great year

Tiger Woods met briefly with media at the site of The Northern Trust tournament on Tuesday, and discussed topics from the Ryder Cup to the record book to equipment modifications to fans this season. Organizers announced on Wednesday that it will be a pay-per-view event from Las Vegas that apparently will encourage the bluster of boxing-match buildups.

Woods meanwhile reflected on his failure to make more birdies in his PGA Championship performance.

Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson carded 67s to lurk a shot off leaders Jamie Lovemark, Vaughn Taylor, Sean O'Hair and Kevin Tway on a day of fairly low scoring on the rain-soaked layout, where players were allowed preferred lies. Five players are missing because of injuries (Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler, Bud Cauley), a wedding to attend (Patrick Rodgers) or an extra week of rest (Rory McIlroy). Neither did Sean O'Hair.

"I'm trying to bring that attitude of how important the majors are to these weeks, trying to be better about making sure that every PGA Tour event I'm focused as I am in the majors. He has missed four cuts this year, but his last one was at the Travelers Championship back in the middle of June.

The top-ranked 125 players in the world qualify for The Northern Trust, before only the top 100 move onto next week's Dell Championship. His most recent performance - featuring a charge up the leaderboard at Bellerive on Sunday - resulted in a 69 percent final-round ratings increase at the PGA Championship.

"There's a lot of pressure because there's a lot of upside, but I'm fine with that. I just need to worry about myself and try to get myself in position come Atlanta, and from there we'll see what we can do".

"To lift that trophy in Atlanta would be definitely a big accomplishment", he said.

Woods and Mickelson, who have 19 Major titles between them, will face off at the Shadow Creek Golf Course on November 23, coinciding with Thanksgiving weekend in the United States. "I didn't know what I was going to do be doing". And then I just haven't shown up.

"I've played a clean card for about 15 or 16 holes, a number of times actually, this year and just didn't quite finish off the rounds that way I wanted to", he said. As the summer as gone on I've gotten better, and felt better. "But I wouldn't mind being part of it".

"At that time, I was done", Woods told ESPN.

"We all purchase those fights".

How about the timing, the day after a holiday in the heart of football season?

Interestingly, the Northern Irishman has contested the same number of playoff series' as Tiger Woods, and has even recorded the same number of individual tournament wins with three.

"As I've said before, this has been a blessing", he said. You know, we had a great second-place finish last time.

"You win two majors, you've got it", Woods said.
