Tiger Woods of the U.S. putts during the final round of the British Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in HoylakeBy Larry Fine PARAMUS New Jersey (Reuters) - Tiger Woods, battling back from a back injury, still drives fan interest and TV ratings and PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem is as keen as the former world number one himself that he has a big 2014 finish. "It's a year-long competition," Finchem said at media day for next month's playoffs opening Barclays tournament at Ridgewood Country Club. "It (an exemption) kind of muddies up the comparative nature of the competition." Woods is a massive 358 points outside the cut line for the four-event playoffs having played only five PGA Tour events this season, but he has two big chances to make up ground at venues where he has had great success. Then comes the Aug. 7-10 PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky, where Woods won the 2000 PGA crown.

Tiger Woods waits to play a shot during a practice round for the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club South Course on July 30, 2014 in Akron, OhioRory McIlroy wants his British Open triumph to be a springboard to more success this season while Tiger Woods is seeking to jump start a 2014 campaign hindered by injury. Former world number one Woods is an eight-time winner at Firestone Country Club, and he sees no reason this week's World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational can't see him back in the winner's circle for the first time since he was sidelined by a March 31 back operation. "There are certain venues like here, Torrey Pines and Bay Hill where no matter what my form is going into that week, I just somehow feel good," Woods said on Wednesday.

Tiger Woods of the U.S. watches his tee shot during the final round of the British Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake(Reuters) - Tiger Woods, still tournament rusty after spending much of this year recovering from back surgery, could not have picked a better venue as he strives to turn his season around at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods has won the elite World Golf Championships (WGC) crown a record eight times at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio and would dearly love to add a ninth in his bid to qualify for the PGA Tour's lucrative season-ending FedExCup playoffs.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand waits on the fourth hole during the second round of the British Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake(Reuters) - Kiradech Aphibarnrat still remembers the cheers each time he reached for his driver at last year's PGA Championship and the big-hitting Thai has no plans to curb his aggressive style after earning a return invitation for the year's final major. Aphibarnrat will join Anirban Lahiri of India, compatriot Thongchai Jaidee as well as South Koreans K.J. Choi, Y.E. Yang and Noh Seung-yul of Korea in the Asian contingent at the Aug. 7-10 tournament at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky. The burly Thai, the reigning Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, finished tied for 25th place last year in his PGA Championship debut. I remember the fans cheering me on at the tee boxes and they liked to see me use my driver," the 25-year-old told the Asian Tour website (www.asiantour.com).

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland celebrates as he holds the Claret Jug after winning the British Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake(Reuters) - Rory McIlroy embellished his status as one of the game's best players with his wire-to-wire win at the British Open nine days ago, but has put that behind him as he strives to achieve further goals before the end of this year. "I've obviously had a bit of time to reflect after the (British) Open and everything, but just decided I wanted to move on and move forward," world number two McIlroy told reporters at Firestone Country Club on Tuesday. So I definitely wasn't going to dwell on what I'd done at Hoylake (venue for the British Open). I've never won a World Golf Championship.

By Tom Hayward LONDON, July 28 (Reuters) - Tom Watson, Colin Montgomerie and Tony Jacklin have called for the 56-year-old Bernhard Langer to be considered for Ryder Cup selection after his emphatic 13-stroke victory in the Senior British Open at the weekend. British bookmakers Ladbrokes rate the German veteran a 20-1 shot to be chosen by European captain Paul McGinley for the biennial match against United States at Gleneagles in Scotland in September. "I'd certainly be saying to Paul that this guy is playing so well he might be worth a pick," U.S. Ryder Cup skipper Watson told reporters after finishing tied 10th in the senior event at Royal Porthcawl in Wales on Sunday. "The way he is hitting it just now Gleneagles is a course that could be played by Bernhard." Former European Ryder Cup captain Montgomerie, who finished a distant second on Sunday, said world number two and new British Open champion Rory McIlroy would have found it tough to keep up with Langer at Porthcawl.
