PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Tiger Woods is leaving nothing to chance in his last chance this year to win a major. Fresh off a seven-shot victory at a World Golf Championship — his fifth win of the season — Woods showed up at Oak Hill late Monday afternoon and spent most of his time chipping and putting, trying to learn the nuances of the greens. Remember, his failure to adjust to the greens is what derailed him at the British Open two weeks ago. He also spent time with Steve Stricker talking about putting, which must have been a daunting sight for the other players. The last time Stricker gave him some putting tips was in early March, and Woods went on to win three of his next four tournaments. The stakes are higher than usual for him at the PGA Championship. This isnt the first time Woods has gone into final major trying to make sure his season doesnt end without one. One difference from previous years is that Woods now is piling up wins just about everywhere except the majors. The Bridgestone Invitational was his fifth win of the year. Only twice in the last 30 years has a player had at least that many PGA Tour wins in a season without a major — Woods in 2009 and Woods in 2003. For someone who has been stuck on 14 majors the last five years, Woods didnt sound like he was in panic mode. "I think winning one major championship automatically means you had a great year," he said Tuesday after playing nine holes and spending even more time in the practice area, fine-tuning a game that already is in great shape. "Even if you miss the cut in every tournament you play, you win one (major), youre part of history. "This year, I think its been a great year so far for me, winning five times," he said. "And you look at the quality of tournaments Ive won — The Players and two World Golf Championships in there — thats pretty good." It used to be major or bust for Woods, but when asked if he had adjusted his standards during this five-year drought, Woods offered a simple, "No." Still a great year without a major? "Yeah," Woods said, offering nothing more than a smile. Even so, he conceded that the 15th major has been tougher to get than he would have imagined. So much has transpired since that U.S. Open playoff victory at Torrey Pines in 2008 — reconstructive surgery on his left knee that wiped out the rest of the 2008 season; revelations of multiple extramarital affairs at the end of 2009 that led to divorce and cost him millions in corporate endorsements; more injuries that forced him to skip two majors in 2011. The very thing that irritates him about his recent record in the majors is what gives him hope — he keeps giving himself opportunities. "Ive had my opportunities there on the back nine on probably half of those Sundays for the last five years, where Ive had a chance and just havent won it," Woods said. "But the key is to keep giving myself chances, and eventually Ill start getting them." The traditional, tree-lined East Course at Oak Hill can present the appearance of Firestone, where Woods won for the eighth time last week. The difference is the greens on the Donald Ross design, which tend to slope severely to the front. The rough is thicker than usual, not nearly as severe as Merion, but enough to get players attention to hit whatever club his necessary off the tee to keep it in the short grass. Woods tied for 39th and never broke par when the PGA Championship was last held at Oak Hill in 2003, though thats a pretty small sample to argue if this course suits him. Remember, he was finishing his first full year without a swing coach. And while he won five times that year, Woods won only one tournament over the last six months. He is back to No. 1 in the world by a mile. He is the favourite at every major, even though hes gone 17 majors without winning. He is the centre of attention, and that only ramps up when he arrives fresh off a seven-shot win. "I think Tiger is a factor no matter what — even coming in not with that kind of form," Masters champion Adam Scott said. "Hes been up there in majors recently and just has not finished it off. But, obviously, he put it all together last week at a venue hes extremely comfortable with, so I dont know that Tigers confidence is ever really down. Its hard to imagine when youve won 80 times or something. Hes obviously going to be feeling good about where his game is at. "But this week is a new challenge, as it is for everyone," Scott said. "And we all start from the same point on Thursday." Its not getting any easier at the majors. For the first time in 25 years, the major champions were three players who were among the top 10 in the world — Scott at the Masters, Justin Rose at the U.S. Open and Phil Mickelson at the British Open. "I think that having Tiger win last week is great because I cant remember the last time somebody won the week before a major and then went on and won," Mickelson said, waiting for the room to catch up to his wisecrack. That would be Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open the week before his British Open win. Woods had been the last player to do that — an eight-shot win at the Bridgestone Invitational in 2007, followed by the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. This will be the 20th time that Woods goes into a major having won in his previous tournament. And while he has won four of those majors — the U.S. Open in 2000, Masters in 2001 and PGA Championship in 2006 and 2007 — only Mickelson (five) and Ernie Els (four) from his generation have won that many majors in a career. Of greater concern is that Woods is 0-for-7 dating to that PGA title at Southern Hills. "Having him back, having him play well, having him win like hes won this year is great for the game of golf," Mickelson said. "And the work that hes been doing with Sean Foley has been noticeable and been paying off and hes not having the shots that hes had for a few years. Hes playing solid and he played great last week. "I think its also great for the game to see guys the like Adam Scott and Justin Rose to come out and win major championships early on — guys that have incredible games and now have won golfs biggest events," he added. "That just makes it exciting because we have a number of players that can really create a lot of interest in this final major championship."

RIO DE JANEIRO — A marathon is not easy. The 26.2-mile race is based on the Greek messenger Pheidippides, who ran that approximate distance to deliver news of the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. According to legend, he collapsed and died at the end.The Brazilian version was grueling in its own right. Fifteen of the 155 runners did not finish the race, including Great Britains Tsegai Tewelde, who had to be taken away in a wheelchair.American Meb Keflezighi suffered stomach cramps and had to stop seven times. He threw up on a couple occasions. Nonetheless, he was able to complete the race in under 2 hours and 17 minutes to finish 33rd — and in spectacular fashion. Waving to the crowd, he slipped on the wet track and crashed to the ground about a foot or so from the finish line. He pulled himself across the line, and then did a set of pushups.Yes, he finished his race by doing pushups.Thats the Meb way of doing things, U.S. teammate Jared Ward said.I guess Ill be known for the epic finish there, Keflezighi said. Somehow it just happened. I saw the finish line and I said Im going to crawl in and then Im going to do pushups.Keflezighi is 41 years old and won the silver medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. He broke his hip during the 2008 Olympic trials but recovered to win the 2009 New York marathon and the 2014 Boston marathon. He finished fourth at the London Olympics. He estimates that when you add up all the miles he has run during training, it is equivalent to circling the globe four times.This sport has done more for me than I can ever imagine, he said.Keflezighi has run 24 marathons and plans to run two more to reach 26 as a fitting connection to the marathon length. U.S. teammate Galen Rupp, meanwhile, ran just the second marathon of his life, yet he finished third to take home a bronze medal, Americas first medal in the event since Keflezighis silver. His first marathon was last February when he won the U.S. Olympic trials in Los Angeles.I was definitely hurting. The last couple miles was like I was walking, Rupp said. I just wanted to keep on going and get to the finish line. The marathon is a real special event, and I dont think I really truly understood that until I started doing it in L.A. and noww here.ddddddddddddIts something special.The 10K has always been my baby for the last 10 years. Its always held a special place for me, but Ive got to move on to the marathon.What marathoners do is incredible. The best ones average less than five minutes a mile, a speed that few of us could even come close to matching over just one mile, let alone 26.The marathon has been part of the Olympics since the first modern Games in 1896. One of the most noted winners was Ethiopias Adebe Bikila, who won the gold medal in 1960 while running barefoot because the shoes Adidas provided him didnt fit.Fellow Ethiopian Feyisa Lilesa won the silver medal Sunday — finishing behind Kenyan gold medalist Eliud Kipchoge, whose time was 2:08.44 – and afterward he spoke about the difficulties in his native country, where many hundreds of people have been killed in recent months while protesting for political and economic rights.There are many problems in my country, Lilesa said. Its very dangerous in my country.Lilesa said he would consider moving to another country. If so, he has many from which to choose to represent at the 2020 Olympics. Nearly 80 countries were represented in the marathon, including Uzbekistan, Bahrain, Lesotho, Iran, Israel, Hungary and so many others.This was the best victory lap ever in terms of the world, Keflezighi said. You could see India, Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica, Cuba and all those guys. And to run with that, I enjoyed every bit of it.Cambodias Kuniaki Takizaki and Jordans Methkal Abu Drais were the final two finishers Sunday. As they entered the stadium, Takizaki was grimacing in agony while Abu Drais was smiling that it was almost over. Takizaki pushed himself and crossed the line ahead of Abu Drais so he did not finish last, with a time of 2:45.55. And despite the pain he had been in, Takizaki immediately started jumping and dancing and waving his arms to get the small crowd to cheer with a huge grin across his face.I was very, very tired, Takizaki said. But very, very, very happy.The Olympics arent just about finishing on the podium. They are about finishing, period.
