GARY WOODLAND finally had a round of golf that worked for him. An 8 under par 64 that was maybe his best round of golf since Round 4 at the U.S Open.

Woodland is the U.S. Open Champion but he is still looking for a place on the Presidents Cup Team.

The top 8 in points after the BMW Championship made the team, but Woodland is only in 9th place.

AFTER HIS FIRST ROUND AT THE BMW-CHAMPIONSHIP Woodland spoke with Golfers on Golf about winning the U.S. Open, life since the open, his deal with Chicago based Wilson Golf. And what has sunk in, since winning the open at Pebble Beach.

Click here, to hear the interview with U.S. Open Champion Gary Woodland.

Since the U.S. Open victory, Woodland’s wife has given birth to twins, and with the demand for his time. Woodland freely admits he is so in need for some practice time.

Woodland (white pants) leads the way down the 4th fairway on Medinah 3, during Sundays round. With Tommy Fleetwood and Adam Hadwin.

Because of the scheduled after the open, Woodland talks about not being ready to play at what was his next tournament in Detroit.

But add’s he is well aware of the Wilson Driver vs Driver 2 winner, the Cortex Driver. And during the offseason ahead, he will spend sometime trying to dial it in. Right now it does not go straight enough for him. But he add’s it’s a “hotclub” and it hits drives a long way.

Woodland is 9th place in the FedExCup points standings, and will play in the PGA Tour Championship this week in Atlanta.
