Woods missed the cut by five shots at the PGA Championship, just five days after he withdrew from a World Golf Championship because of a sore back. Watson says the 14-time major champion can still bring plenty to the American team, and “I’d be a fool not to consider him.”

Mickelson was right in the middle of a riveting four-man duel Sunday, but he faded on the back nine and lost to Rory McIlroy by a single stroke. Lefty closed with a 5-under 66 for a 15-under 269, but McIlroy captured his second straight major with a par at No. 18.

Turn out the lights: McIlroy beats darkness, challengers to win PGA

- Associated Press

The tournament finished in near-darkness Sunday at Valhalla Golf Club, with the final two groups essentially morphing into a foursome as they raced to beat nightfall. A nearly two-hour rain delay set up the possibility of a Monday finish, especially if there had been a three-hole playoff.

Play was suspended for nearly two hours Sunday, before McIlroy and all the leading players had even teed off. Workers brought out squeegees, trying furiously to push standing water off the course. Towels were used to dry the tee boxes.
