He said that he watched last year's U.S. Open on television, before he had been given the all-clear even to start practicing again after his April spinal fusion, not even sure he would be able to play again, let alone return to major championships.

"I had no expectation of getting this far," he said.

"A lot of this is pure bonus because of where I was. It's a great feeling and one I don't take for granted."

And although he has not yet won in his comeback this year, he has been competitive, including twice being in contention at back-to-back tournaments in Florida in March.

"I loved how it felt being there.

"I would like to get myself there a few more times. So far this year I've only given myself a few chances."

TRAFFIC TROUBLE

One thing he won't have to worry about this week is traffic as he tries to end a decade-long drought since his 14th major win at the 2008 U.S. Open.

He said some players had taken more than two hours to get to the course from their hotels and rental houses.
