PITTSFORD, N.Y. - It was supposed to be a week for the ages at the PGA Championship with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson dueling to win the Wanamaker Trophy in their first showdown as the world's No. 1 and No. 2 players in a few years. Instead, the two superstars have been relegated to also-ran status at Oak Hill Country Club midway through the year's final major. Woods struggled with his putting all day Friday, posting four birdies and four bogeys in a round of 70 that left him at 1-over-par 141 and 10 shots off the lead held by Jason Dufner.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - They are the two most talked about golfers in the world. Coincidentally, they are ranked first and second in the world. One of them won the most recent major tournament, and the other won the most recent PGA Tour tournament. Yet, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are not quite in the top conversation at Oak Hill this weekend. Both had their struggles throughout their first and second rounds of the PGA Championship, yet both managed to sneak past the cut. Mickelson sits at 2-over-par for the championship, while Woods is only a shot better at 1-over after yesterday.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Remember when Adam Scott didn't threaten much at a major? Hey, at least Greg Norman kept putting himself in position enough to have it all go wrong in the end. Well, at 33, the fellow Australian has now become almost a fixture in these things. Right about the same time, coincidentally or whatever, he hooked up with caddie Steve Williams after Williams' messy breakup from Tiger Woods. Or maybe Scott finally just became the kind of player most everyone always thought he could be. It happens.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Haven't we been here before? Way too many times, actually, in the recent past? So why can't Tiger Woods just win his 15th major title and get on with the rest of his immortal career already? The 95th PGA Championship begins tomorrow at Oak Hill County Club, where Woods is once again your favorite. And why not? He's won five times this season. Only two other guys have even won twice. Last week Tiger won by seven at one of his favorite courses, Firestone, his second World Golf Championship of the year.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Tiger Woods agrees with most people who believe that winning one major championship means that a golfer has had a great year. By that definition, Woods hasn't had a great year in quite a while. He is winless in majors since the 2008 U.S. Open, a streak that stands at 17 as Woods heads into this week's PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. In this instance, however, Woods would like everyone to consider his 2013 body of work - five PGA Tour victories this season, including last week's 7-stroke win in the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Unless Phil Mickelson wins like another 10 majors in the next decade, he's going to go down as the second-best golfer of the Tiger Woods era. And at 43, that's probably not going to happen. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino and Tom Watson all took turns being the second-best players of the Jack Nicklaus era, too. Nobody holds it against them. Two months ago, Mickelson left Merion feeling as badly about losing a tournament as he ever had. And if you know his history, that's saying something.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Phil Mickelson admits he had a dream the night before the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club that he had won the championship. Once he awoke, it took him at least a full minute to realize he actually hadn't done it. Now when Mickelson wakes up in the morning, he takes a look at the Claret Jug to prove to himself that winning the British Open was real. "I just remember feeling that elation, and for the past week or two that I've had the Claret Jug, I've been looking at it when I wake up just to make sure it wasn't a dream," Mickelson said Tuesday at Oak Hill Country Club after completing a practice round for the PGA Championship and signing autographs for more than half an hour.

THE PGA Championship counts the same as the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. It just doesn't seem that way. Because, well, it's generally viewed as being fourth in the grand-slam pecking order. Just don't try selling that to five-time champion Jack Nicklaus, who I'm sure treasures those Wanamaker Trophies every bit as much as his other 13 major titles. Still . . . The Masters has the green jacket, and returns to the same TV-friendly venue every April. The U.S. Open is the national championship, and is the toughest tournament to win. The British Open is the oldest championship, and the one the rest of the world reveres most.

GULLANE, Scotland - Tiger Woods was actually having a pretty good day, though the fans lining the seventh hole might have thought otherwise. They had the misfortune of having to listen as he unleashed a string of loud expletives directed at himself and a ball that bounced over the green into the rough. Hardly the way a gentleman golfer at the British Open is supposed to act, even if no one seemed to take much offense. Not with home favorite Lee Westwood on the green putting for birdie in a championship that even on Saturday was already becoming a two-man show within a show.

GULLANE, Scotland - Lee Westwood has contended enough in the majors that he can identify important moments, even if he could barely see his ball. He had a 1-shot lead over Tiger Woods, standing in grass up to his knees in the dunes left of the par-3 16th hole. It was one of the few bad shots Westwood hit Saturday at Muirfield, and by far his worst predicament. He slashed at the ball and it didn't reach the green. He used a putter to belt his next shot up the hill to 12 feet. What followed was a finish that allowed him to believe he was closer than ever to ending his 20-year pursuit of a major.
