By Frank Pingue ROCHESTER, New York (Reuters) – There was a period in his career when it seemed only a matter of time before Tiger Woods would accomplish his lifetime goal of winning a record 19 major championships. But after concluding the PGA Championship well back of the leaders on Sunday, the 14-times major winner ensured his drought at golf’s elite events will spill into a once-unthinkable sixth year. “Didn’t seem to hit it as good and didn’t make many putts until the last few holes today,” said Woods, whose even-par 70 left him at four-over for the tournament. …

Cheat Sheet: What you need to know for Saturday in golf

Mahan hunting down the Canadian Open
At the British Open last week, Hunter Mahan shot 68 in the third round and played his way into the final group at Muirfield. This week, he shot an eight-under 64 in the second round, which included six birdies in seven holes.
It’s still early, so who knows if he’s going to win, but if one thing is for sure: Mahan’s consistency this season has been pretty breathtaking. In 19 events he’s made 16 cuts, finished in the Top-25 12 times, and has been in the final group after 54-holes in two consecutive majors. He’s still looking for his first win of the season, but if he continues doing what he’s doing, he won’t be waiting for much longer.

Ball strikers vs. scramblers at the Senior British Open
There’s a mighty brawl unfolding at the British Senior Open this week. Among those in the Top 5 after 36-holes is Bernhard Langer, who’s averaging 14 greens each round of this tournament, and Gene Sauers, who’s averaging 15. They’re joined by David Frost, Mark Wiebe and Mark McNulty who are averaging 10, 10.5 and 11 greens respectively. That may sound like a lot, but it’s not by tour standards, so what we’re about to witness at Royal Birkdale is a case study of scramblers vs. ball strikers under major championship conditions. Buckle your seatbelts.
