PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Tiger Woods climbed into the courtesy Mercedes SUV and drove away Sunday from Oak Hill Country Club, maybe wondering when - or if - he will ever break his streak of winless majors. Woods wrapped up his 19th straight major without a trophy, a Claret Jug or a green jacket, shooting a par 70 in the final round of the PGA Championship. His aggregate of 4-over 284 left him in a tie for 40th, tied for his worst finish as a professional in a major in which he has posted a 72-hole score.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - At least Tiger Woods finished ahead of Phil Mickelson. Of course, so did almost everyone else who made the cut at the season's final major. And at least Phil got a major out of the season, which got him to within nine of Tiger's 14. Yet for the fifth year in a row, Woods failed to gain on Jack Nicklaus' record 18. So what more do you have to know, as far as the state of the sport goes? For the 16th consecutive weekend round in a major, Tiger did not shoot in the 60s. A closing 70 gave him a 284, which was eight better than he did at Oak Hill a decade ago, the last time the PGA Championship was held here.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - It was another day at the PGA Championship, and another frustrating walk around Oak Hill Country Club for Tiger Woods, who assuredly will come up empty again for an 18th straight major. Woods bogeyed two of his first three holes Saturday and made nothing happen after that. His 3-over-par 73 left him at 4-over 214, tied for 48th place and 13 strokes behind 54-hole leader Jim Furyk. "It was hard for me," Woods said. "I didn't play very well today. I didn't hit it very good, didn't make anything, kept blocking every putt.

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.
