World No. 11 Xander Schauffele battled to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the 102nd PGA Championship to conclude on 8-under 272, up four places to T9 with play still in progress.
This was the Californian's fourth PGA and second top 25, second straight after T16 last year. Overall, it's his eighth top 25 in 12 majors and if the top 10 holds, would be his sixth, third in his last five. The SDSU alum improves to 14-for-15 on the season with 13 top 25s, five consecutive, and potentially a sixth top 10, second straight after T6 at last week's WGC. For the week, he recorded rounds of 66-70-69-67 and totaled 17 birdies against nine bogeys. In the finale, the 26-year-old offset three bogeys with six birdies on five (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.023 strokes approaching but gaining 0.586 off-the-tee, 0.485 around and 2.260 on-the-green.

Jordan Spieth shot a final-round 67 at TPC Harding Park but will still have to wait another year to capture the only major title that has eluded him.
Spieth's chances for his fourth career major ended Saturday, when he ballooned to a 76 while playing partner Justin Thomas carded birdie after birdie. A Sunday bounceback included five birdies against two bogeys, a far cry from the eight-bogey effort the previous day. But Spieth still finished the week at 4-over, in a tie for 71st and near the bottom of the players who made the cut. Spieth still has not won any tournament since capturing the 2017 Open, and he has now missed four chances to round out the final leg of the career Grand Slam with a PGA victory. A runner-up at this event in 2015 and a T-3 finisher last year at Bethpage, this is the first time he finished outside the top 30 at a PGA Championship since missing the cut in 2014 at Valhalla.

Tiger Woods closed the PGA Championship with a 3-under 67, his best round of the week at TPC Harding Park.
Woods started the final round 11 shots off the lead and finished well before the leaders teed off, so even a round that got him back to 2 under for the week still left him outside the top 40 when he signed his card. After struggling for much of the week on the greens, he rolled in five birdies Sunday despite not making a putt longer than 12 feet. It's shaping up to be a similar result as Woods' T-40 finish at the Memorial, his only other start since mid-February. He told reporters he expects to take a week off before returning to play, implying a start at the first playoff event, The Northern Trust. Woods is projected to move to No. 47 in the FedEx Cup points race and will need to have a solid result either at TPC Boston or the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields if he has any hopes of qualifying for a return to the 30-man Tour Championship next month.

World No.13 Tommy Fleetwood birdied two of his final three holes to salvage an even-par 36-34=70 in Round 3 of the 102nd PGA Championship, falling five spots to T7 on 6-under 204, three short of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson (65).
Playing out of the final twosome with overnight leader Haotong Li (73), the 29-year-old hit five (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.580 strokes approaching but gaining 0.900 around-the-green. He was birdie-less 2-over thru 15 holes, squaring bogeys at 3 and 10 (penalty drop), before a couple of late birdie-3s at 16 and 18 brought him back inside the top 10. The Englishman, who fired a week-tying-low 64 on Friday, couldn't repeat the putting magic on Day 3 in San Francisco, ekeing out a 0.069 SG: Putting. He'll play out of the sixth-to-last twosome on Sunday with Daniel Berger.

The FSU product, who arrived off three top-3 finishes in his last four starts, including a T2 at last week's WGC in Memphis and a P1 at the Charles Schwab Challenge in golf's first event back after the shutdown, recorded 1.846 putts per GIR and -2.257 SG: Putting. He missed five total putts from inside of 12 feet, lowlighted by a whiff from 3'9" for birdie-3 at 16. Berger will play out of the sixth-to-last twosome in R4 with Tommy Fleetwood.

World No. 28 Paul Casey authored a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the 102nd PGA Championship to reach 7-under 203, up four places to T4, two short of leader Dustin Johnson (65).
The 43-year-old is vying for his fourth TOUR win in 274 events, first since the 2019 Valspar 24 starts ago as the 54-hole leader by one. He's also eyeing his first major title in 64 tries, and will be paired with two-time defending champ Brooks Koepka in Round 4. The Scottsdale resident landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.174 SG: Off-the-Tee, 1.398 SG: Approach, 1.274 SG: Around, and 2.847 SG: Tee-to-Green, No. 1 in SG: TTG with a cumulative 9.890. All of his scoring took place on the outward nine, offsetting bogey-5 at six with three circles at 5, 8 and 9 (from 12'1"), before wrapping up with nine consecutive pars. The Englishman missed five scoring tries from inside of 12 feet and lost 0.429 strokes with the flat stick, despite a 13'9" par-saver at 1, but did manage a highlight with a hole-out birdie-2 at 8 from a greenside bunker 37'4" away.
