Just a follow-up to my post last Monday on Tiger and Phil--all you need to know: Tiger, -18, wins his third PGA Championship and ties his own PGA Championship scoring record in relation to par (which he had set, with Bob May, at the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville, Ky.); Phil, -6, blew up on the weekend. Also, I said that it was a strange tournament: Shaun Micheel, who had missed seven straight cuts, finished second with a number (-13) that would have won the last five PGA Championships. When does Tiger get to 19 majors? One projection was the 2011 British Open; he'll be 35 when that happens. Yikes.
