(Reuters) - Justin Rose has produced sparkling form over the past three months after a slow start to the PGA Tour season and says he is "excited" about his title defense at this week's Quicken Loans National in Gainesville, Virginia. World number seven Rose clinched last year's tournament after a playoff at Congressional Country Club in Maryland, and knows he faces a very different test at a new venue over the next four days at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. "So, it's a new test ... I don't certainly put any pressure on myself this week." Rose brings excellent form to the PGA Tour event hosted by Tiger Woods, having posted four top-10s in 13 starts this season, including a victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April and a playoff loss at the Memorial Tournament in June.

This year, the Quicken Loans National moves to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, a course he's never seen. Given its place on the crowded PGA Tour schedule, a week off might be tempting - but not for Rose. Got a couple of the best-looking trophies on Tour,'' Rose said.

Lizette Salas should be midway through her first round at the Women's British Open on Thursday morning when Donald Trump arrives via helicopter to expected fanfare at his Turnberry resort. Not because she holds a grudge at Trump's derogatory remarks about Mexicans that have dominated the pre-tournament chatter at the fourth major of the year. Quite simply, Salas will have more important things on her mind.

Fears about Rory McIlory's participation in the U.S. PGA Championship increased on Wednesday after the injured world number one withdrew from next week's PGA Tour event, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. American Jordan Spieth, the winner of the season's first two majors, could replace the Northern Irishman at the top of the world rankings if the American wins next week's WGC event. McIlroy has been out of action since he ruptured a ligament in his left ankle while playing soccer with friends on July 4.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Rory McIlroy has told the PGA Tour he will not play the Bridgestone Invitational next week as he recovers from his ankle injury.

Inbee Park, the top-ranked player in women's golf, has criticized the qualifying criteria for next year's Olympic tournament, saying it will rule out too many of the world's top stars. South Korea, where Park is from, has 15 players in the top 28 in the women's rankings.

(Reuters) - Time is fast running out for Tiger Woods to salvage what he describes as a "frustrating" PGA Tour season after three missed cuts, a withdrawal and just one top-25 finish in eight starts. The former world number has plummeted to a mind-boggling 266th in the rankings, making him ineligible for next week's elite WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio where he has triumphed a record eight times. Woods attributes his woes to a "perfect storm" of trying to work through the latest swing change of his career while still recovering from back surgery, but he said on Tuesday things were "starting to come together".
