Scott knows he's running out of time for a 2nd Major

Tiger Woods finished second at this weekend's PGA Championship. He moves clear of Woods and level with Koepka! But after a slow start to his round, including a bogey at the first, Scott proved he had a little fight left. He's going to be on the team one way or the other, whether he's a vice captain or a player and whichever role he is I'm looking forward to it and I know he is too. "They were talking about him as we left, and I was just standing there laughing". After missing short birdie putts at Nos. His 13-under total was good for third place, one back of Woods and three off the pace.

Showing up to the golf course with a tail might not be for everyone, but Brown was glad to show his support for the competitor everybody's talking about at Bellerive.

Woodland had a chance to show what he's made of after losing four strokes to par in a two-hole stretch with a bogey on No. 9 and a triple on 10. You want to win in that position.

"I'll do some practice this week and see if I feel ready to go there and play five out of six weeks leading up to the Ryder Cup". Major championship golf is amusing. Fans would occasionally shout his name as Scott walked by Sunday, ensuring his good friend and fellow Aussie was never far from his mind.

"No matter who wins tomorrow, if that person has met Jarrod Lyle, then they will have felt something with him passing this week", he said. "I'm just very pleased at what I've done so far and now to be part of the Ryder Cup conversation, going from where I've come from to now in the previous year, it's been pretty cool".

That's just a small sampling of information provided on every player in the field, including the 20 club professionals who qualified in the PGA Professionals Championship, won by former University of Kansas All-American Ryan Vermeer, 40.

Spieth reworked his swing - "I spent two months nailing the wrong thing", he confessed - and has struggled to, as he said, "climb back out of it".

JUST MISSED: Tiger Woods came so close to major No. 15.

"I'm excited for the next few years".

"I couldn't sit still and make pars and be okay with it", he said.

It was a marathon day of golf for Woods who was one of 77 players pulling double duty to complete his rain-interrupted second round while putting his surgically repaired back to the test. But Koepka was simply immovable at the top of the leader board as he answered with a 66 that included a half-dozen birdies and kept victory just out of reach for everyone else.

Adam Scott was in contention for the title right up until the final hole.

"That will probably go down as probably one of the best shots I've ever hit under pressure", he said.

"I just missed the putts on 14 and 15 and Brooks made his and my momentum was gone, and I didn't play the last two holes very well".

"That was certainly filtering back through the groups", Scott said. And Scotty played unbelievably well and so did Tiger.

It was nearly too late before anybody paid attention to what Scott was doing.

As word spread that Woods was on the charge, those who weren't already following the former world number one were soon scrambling to join crowds that were 12-deep and lined almost every hole from tee to green.

"I heard all the roars when Tiger made his run", Koepka said. He showed he doesn't have any mope in him and has a confidence level that's hard to dent.

"When I look at what I've done in the past two months, I was sitting on my couch watching the Masters, and to think I would do this?"
