It wasn't so much media day at the 100th PGA Championship on Tuesday as it was Tiger Woods Day.
Love has struggled with injuries in recent years, but a hip replacement has helped with some of the pain he'd been feeling.
For most of the day Fowler had ruled the leaderboard after launching his quest for his first major with a 65 but could only watch as Woodland mounted an unexpected charge.
"I always have hope", Fowler said. Rory McIlroy made a late charge for consideration by winning the FedExCup.
Players typically are concerned about rest going into the final major of the year because the British Open was only about two weeks ago and the FedEx Cup playoffs on the PGA Tour are just around the corner.
Just don't get the idea the 29-year-old McIlroy is down on himself.
"I like the way he's moving the club", added Kostis, who is part of the CBS broadcast team for this week's PGA Championship. He has been in the top 3 five times this year, including three runner-up finishes. That also was the last of his four majors.
"I have a sense of confidence and belief that I totally can get over the line and win one".

The Israeli authorities have announced that Sapir College will be closed today as will numerous roads in the region. An onlooker captured the incredible footage of Israel intercepting mod-air rocket from Gaza .
Woods has climbed from off-the-charts to 20th in the standings over the past seven months, taking a big jump after contending in the British Open at Carnoustie.
Key statistic: Tiger Woods is the only player to win the PGA Championship back-to-back in stroke play.
"I literally haven't set foot on this golf course since that week in 2001", Woods said. "I don't want to talk", the PGA's chief championship officer said from a podium.
"The only thing I haven't done is win enough".
At the Championship, Justin Thomas is back as defending champion and up to No. 2 in the world, behind only Dustin Johnson. "I had won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship was at St. Andrews a month later, so I wasn't really asked a lot, other than, 'What would it be like to complete the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews?"'
If nothing else, Spieth should have plenty of support this week.
Some players had grumbled after early practice rounds about brown patches on some of the greens, but Haigh said Wednesday that's hard to avoid given the oppressive summer heat in St. Louis.
It is the third career major start for Suri, who also played in the 2017 and 2018 Open Championships.
"It's really fun", Spieth said, "when you get a chance to play in front of family".
