His full status means he'll probably play in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia and and the CJ Cup in South Korea for the first time when the PGA Tour calendar season starts in October.
With his debilitating back problem now seemingly behind him, he has nearly recaptured the form of his halcyon days, with only a victory missing from his 2018 resume. "I feel like I'm very good at trying to improve every week rather than looking at what the overall outcome is", Fleetwood said after firing a 4-under 67 on Thursday. "How soon I don't know but I'm putting myself there in tournaments now".
"Last week I wasn't in the event, and so all last weekend I was leaderboard watching, hoping to get a chance to be here", Seiffert said. "I think for myself personally, it's my first Ryder Cup, and actually getting there and slipping the top on, I think that will be massive".
He has been stuck on 14 major victories for more than a decade, his quest to surpass Jack Nicklaus (18) as the sport's most prolific major victor looking increasingly out of reach. Woods has 79 career wins, 65 away from the majors.
"In order to get to Jack's record, I have to pass Snead's record; it's just simple math and I want to make that happen".
"It's a way to show a side you don't normally see by having us miked up to hear some of the interaction between us". He's hitting some great shots.

He held the lead on the back nine on Sunday at the British Open, finishing tied for sixth, and was in with a chance on the last nine holes at the recent US PGA Championship only to finish runner-up to Brooks Koepka. He spent some two months in a soft cast to let the partially torn tendon heal, and wound up missing the Masters.
"For the week, I've only made eight [actually seven] birdies, and that's not going to get it done", Woods said.
The 42-year-old bagged a second place finish at the PGA Championship earlier this month while 48-year-old Mickelson missed the cut.
AUSTRALIAN Jason Day has an axe to grind at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey.
"At the beginning of the year, I didn't know", he said when asked about his attitude now versus in January.
"No doubt. To go through what I've gone through".
Woods knows that a key to his game is driving the ball well.
However, Woods is about to attempt something he hasn't done in over five years: play in three consecutive tournaments.
"Yeah, that is a lot of golf". That would at least give him some good vibes going to the TPC Boston, where he won 12 years ago.
Nick Faldo, a six-time major victor and analyst for CBS and Golf Channel, said on the Dan Patrick Show earlier this month that he overheard Woods at the 2017 Masters dinner - an event for previous champions - that he was "done" and that "I won't play golf again". But he is virtually guaranteed to be one of captain Jim Furyk's picks to fill out the team.
